from a relative i received a cd-r disc containing some software. This cd-r disc was made with the program directcd. In order to read out the cd you must have directcd installed on the pc. Now I want to copy this disc for my brother... for some reason directcd doesn't work on his pc. So i'm asking myself, when i copy the disc with an disc-copy-program like winoncd does the copy for my brother also require directcd ???

what directcd does is allow you to use a cd like a harddrive. So, if you close the cd and make a copy of it normally, you should be able to distribute it. If that doesn't work, than copy the contents of the cd to your hard drive and create the new cd that way - but DO NOT use directcd to make the cd. Use another cd creator.
