Sorry if this question is off-topic, I don't know in which other topic I could ask this question...

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
???

It shouldn't because direct CD was a way of writing to disk by using drag and drop to drag files to the cd and it would write them to the disk. You shouldn't need to install directcd on any machine to get it to read the disk.

This is NOT TRUE.  

You must have the UDF filesystem driver loaded on this systems that do not have UDF natively supported.

DirectCD has a option to convert it's file system to ISO9660 format, so the disk was be readable in standart CD, use this option instead.
