For the most part, all you need is software that can rip a disc.

That's pretty much it, besides having a burner and some blank discs.

Yes, but bear in mind that if you want the disk to be bootable then you will need to use something like ISOBuster to copy the Microsoft CFG file from the original disk.

Isobuster is at ISOBUSTER

Not a hundred percent sure about the insertion of hyperlinks so if that doesn't work just go to isobuster.com

You might want to download an instruction, such as the one I've used and found to work:


XP

This instruction is actually designed to lead you through Slipstreaming XP SP2 into your original Windows CD, but it explains (near the end) about using ISOBUSTER.

If you have a program that can rip that cd, you can rip it to your hard drive, then you can use any burning software and burn it to disc, and you'll have an exact copy of the original.

I know what you mean about the imaging, but you don't have to do it that way. If you got any rewritable discs, try it. It works for me. All I do is rip it to my drive, then burn it to disc.

So far I've never had an auto-running disc that didn't work for me, once I knew how to burn a few years ago.

Another way to look at the ISO format!

When you rip a disc, it rips it into an iso format (if you set it to)... actually a compressed format, like a zip file... then when you want to burn it, all it does is take out all of the files from the iso format, and then burn them to disc in the directories and such. So basically, there is no need to make an iso of a disc just to make a copy.

Actually, I very seldom use iso, not unless I already have files in that format. But I never compiled more than about 2 - 5 files iso's so far. It's just a compression format for all files that make up the disc, and it has a standard in which computers can read and decypher/extract.

I've also taken iso images, loaded them with DAEMON Tools, copied all the files from the virtual drive to my hard drive, burned them, and everything works perfectly everytime.

I'm just informing you of this just incase you want a quick way to rip/burn all at the same time. But, if iso floats your boat, go for it.
