Hello everyone,

 

My one doctor needs me to make a copy of the MRI Disc I have so he can upload it onto the computer system at his office. My problem is the software program that I Normally would use to do that, the Free Trial Period Expired! 

 

My questions are:

 

1) What free software programs are available, that will be able to copy a MRI disc to a blank disc?

 

2) I forget how to copy one disc to a blank disc!  :oopsign:Can someone please provide me with directions?  :hysterical:

 

Thanks

Try 'Free Easy Burner' from Koyote. It's a good basic CD / DVD burner and it'ss a free download. Very easy to use.

Thanks, I will give it a try.

 

I went to download and install it, but I would have to Install another program with it that I do not want nor do I need! So I decided NOT to install it!  The program is a "Movie Trailer" Viewer App for Firefox.  To me that is BS, I know that is what helps keep the program "Free", But I do not want the "Movie Trailer" viewer app nor do I need it! It is a good way for Viruses, Malware and Spam to enter Computers! I think that is How my computer got so "Screwed Up" in the first place!  With all of the "Add-On" programs that are added on to the original program that you download!

It didn't do that the last time I had to re-install it, thanks for the info.

 

I'll have another look at it and if it there is no 'Custom' install where you can dodge this sort of thing it will be off my 'suggest' list. Pity, it is actually a very good little application for simple tasks like writing an audio CD or data DVD and, from time to time, I ship a lot of data around.

 

There are quite a few of these around - google for something like 'freeware CD burners', you may find something that suits you better.

Hello there Chris,

 

Yes, I was NOT even given the option to either Install or Not Install the "Movie Trailer App".  And yes I did check and read the "pop-up" box that showed up. It said I would have to install the "Movie Trailer App" to continue with the Download. So I clicked "Cancel" to stop the installation process! 

I think a lot of companies are doing that now with their "free" programs. At one time they used to "hide" these "add-on" programs. then they gave you the option to either "download and install" or not to. But then a couple companies said we are not going to give you the option you have to download and install the "add-on".  Make the Company A LOT MORE $$$$$!! But to me it is :horse:  , forcing me to download and install an "add-on" that I do not want, just so I can get the "Free" Program! Oh well. Sorry for the rant! :ranting:

That is now definite -'Free Easy Burner' is off my recommend list. Nor only is this movie player an obligatory download, both times I tried to download it - from different sources - I got a malware warning from my AV as well.

 

A pity because it itself is a good product but there are a number of others out there as jhayz as pointed out.

Why not copy the content to the computer, then put in a blank CD right click the folder and send it to the CD.  For that you do not need an outside program.  I am a cancer patient and have been copying my Med CD's for a couple of years now, when done I just delete the folder.

It has been a while since I did it that way. lol  I used to just click on "Copy Disc" and it would copy the whole disc, but the program I used for that was a free trial version and that free trial period ran out! That is why I asking about a free program to copy the disc.  I will try copying to computer and then burning to disc.
