copy CD's

I have bought CD's from Suse in Germany. I would like to copy the CD's but it seems impossible. Some protection is on the CD's. Anybody that knows a workaround?

Thanks in advance

Details might help...

You could give a bit more information about how you are trying to copy the disc. I try to avoid any form of front end, so I copy CDs (data) by using dd to create an image file and cdrecord to write the image to another disc.


dd if=/dev/scd0

cdrecord speed=4 -v dev=0,1,0 -data

Sorry, but I use Windows as operating system and Nero to copy the disks.. I do not have a CD-writer on my linux machine..

I have tried to copy the CDs directly and to copy the entire CD to my disk, but none of these works.

Try using Elaborate Byte's CloneCD. Just go to Google and type "clone cd", you should find it. You can download a trial version and it works super-good.
