Thumbs up How Do I copy data from the cdrom to my harddrive

I was able to mount the cdrom drive, but I just want to copy all the files I have on the cdrom to the directory on my harddrive where all this information needs to go!

If anyone can help that would be much appreciated !

Hi TransAM Jugo

In general - just open the directory where your cd-rom drive is mounted - then using your File-manager - Edit Select All - Edit Copy - then open your destination directory and simply paste the files in.
