    I'm trying to find an Open Source or Freeware program which will simply copy program disks to a CD as a backup copy. Everything I've found so far, won't copy a backup CD, it wants to make a data CD, or Audio CD, or ISO image.

    Any suggestions?

    Are you trying to create an image of a bootable partition? I'm not sure exactly what you're trying to do from the description.

    Let's say I have a MSFlight Sim program CD, used to install the program. I want to copy that CD to a blank CD from which I can use just like the original to install the program. Simply copy the program CD to a backup copy CD.

    Ok, I'll try again....Let's say I have 3 program disks (or 4) to install a game. I want to copy those to 3 (4) blank CD's so I can use them to install the program rather than use the originals.

    I think you need to visit the TSG Rules, you're asking for help breaking the copy protection of game disks. We don't assist with illegal activities here. Please do not ask for this kind of assistance here.
