Hey gang,

I cannot make a working copy of my Windows Media Center Version 2005 w/Update Rollup 2. This is an orange dvd for a Dell computer.

When I attempt to copy the disk I get reading errors on the copy during validation of the data. I have tried this twice using Nero Express.

Does anyone know why? How can I make a working copy so I can put my original away for safekeeping?

My guess is that this disk is write protected. I cannot find confirmation anywhere regarding this, however. I have had no issues with making copies of XP disks before, just this one. Hmmmmm.

Can you copy the disk to your hard drive and burn it from there? Maybe an ISO recorder type program?

I did copy the files to a hard drive, and then burned them to a dvd, but it didn't work either.

What kind of DVDs you trying to copy? Cuz if it's copyrighted materials on that DVD than ALBERT fRANKENSTEIN is right on its write protected

I've made copies of other Dell CD/DVD media without issue, but must admit that I've never tried it with the orange one's (mostly blue and purple). Could be that the disk has copy protection on it tho' - have you tried one of the CD/DVD ripping programs?

I have successfully copied a Gatway version of the same OS. However, this DELL one will not copy.

Thanks for your inputs. I give up on this.
