    Hi,

    I'd like to make a backup copy of my Panther DVD. How would I do this?

    If I just copy the files, it only creates symlinks/shortcuts to the folders on the DVD and doesnt mirror the contents of the original DVD.

    Any help appreciated!

    Use /Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility

    Then select the "PowerBook Software" (or something like it) volume (that's just below the name of the DVD-drive).
    Then click on "New Image"
    (see pic)

    Choose a convenient name (same as DVD), and choose where to create the image.

    This will take a while.
    When it's done, you can use the same "Disk Utility" to burn the image you have just made onto a DVD-R.

    Good luck.
