With Nero Burning ROM you can copy a disc. That means you make an exact copy of a source disc and burn it to a target disc. If your source disc is an Audio CD, for instance, your copy will be an Audio CD as well. Depending on your installed burner, you can copy CDs, DVDs or Blu-ray Discs. The target disc must be the same disc type as the source disc – you can copy a DVD only to a DVD, for example. In any case, Nero Burning ROM will give you a message when the disc type do not fit.

 

 

 

If you are not in possession of the copyright for the relevant disc and do not have authorization from the owner of the copyright, unauthorized copying of discs violates national and international legislation.

 

 

 

 

Some discs are copy-protected and cannot be copied. If you are not sure whether your disc can be copied, activate simulation before commencing the actual physical burn process.
