    It is possible in many CD burning applications to do a direct copy. That being said, I've always buffered to the hard disk, since it's more reliable as a rule.

    Like johnwill said, it's in the settings for your burning software. It's faster to burn that way but unless your burner has under-run protection you run the risk of burning a coaster if the reader can't keep up with the burner. Before my DVD drive died I burned that way, just because it was faster. I don't remember creating any more coasters than I do now. :D

    We really need to know what os/burning software you are using.
    Also, if this is an application specific question, this post should be moved appropriately

    Check out "Clone CD" using a Google search.
