    I have a bunch of application disks that I would like to copy so I can keep one at work and one at home. Is there a way to make a copy that I can install off of?

    THanks.

    If you have Toast, just go to the Copy tab.

    Without Toast, you'll have to use Disk Utility. Insert the CD and open DU. On the left panel, click the session you want to copy (usually there will be 3 CD icons, and you normally want the middle one). Go to Images -> New -> Image from CD Name (the last option). I recommend using DVD/CD master and no encryption.

    Once it's finished, you can use the Burn toolbar button to copy the image file onto a new CD.

    Just remember not to violate the software licenses on the software.

    :D

    Somebody finally noticed! (although I suspect BV may already have). I've been a mod for about 10 hours now :)
