    When I attempt to copy my OEM release of Windows XP Pro, I get "There has been a read error" and goes on to say that iot may affect the new CD. When I tell it not to continue, it gives me an error that the CD is copyrighted.

    I can copy the CD just fine with Easy CD Creator.

    Anyone have any enlightening comments about this?

    I see the copyrighted message occasionally with Nero, though it doesn't affect the copy. I've copied XP disks before with no issues. I'd suspect that it's something about your installation of Nero, or it just doesn't like your CD-RW drive.
