but that's not why I'm writing... That's to ask Mr. Stander if he would
kindly define his distinctions for the digitally challenged. That is, what
"CD software" does he refer to?  I use CDs for backup but AFAIK the
'software' in something in the bowels (or brains) of system 9. I don't use
Toast, or similar over-programmed programs that seem (to me anyway) designed
to cause intractable headache or complicate something simple. 
When it's time to burn I simply eject, the system asks should it burn, and I
say yes.
Do I have to revise that judgment?  Should I recant?
And an interesting sidelight, BTW -- I recently installed an internal hard
drive (well I lie, someone who knows these  things installed it), with
System 10 on it. And even though I haven't used the damn thing yet, or
worked out of System 10 (for CS2, BTW) it has altered the rest of the set-
up. Really. When I had to shut down for something or other, like donner und
blitzen, it delayed the shutdown & ASKED ME if it should save the disk
burner image, which it did.  (That's almost as motherly as system 8.6,
apparently due to the mere presence of 10 on another drive.)
By "System 10" I assume you mean OS X?
In any case in OS X you can make a "disk image" of a CD (or DVD for that
matter) using the program named "Disk Utility" found under
Applications->Utilities. Launch this program, select the CD you want to copy
from the left hand pane, and then click the button "New Disk Image" (or
something to that effect ... I am sitting at a PC while I write this :-( ).
This will create a file named: "Foo.cdr" which can be used to burn a new CD.
That is to say: this software is included in OS X and there is no need to
purchase third party software to do this.
