equivalent of roxio burn - in freeware

this tool has an icon on the desktop and with that you are copy CD/DVD. the big advantage is that you dont have to save an image first before you start the copy- it is all done in memory.

would you know of and recommend any freeware that can do this?

Most tools can do that. I use infrarecorder:

25112--I use ImgBurn
http://imgburn.com/  You can pin it to Taskbar.

Concerning your statement about Roxio "the big advantage is that you dont have to save an image first before you start the copy":  I am not at all sure that is correct.  The Roxio icon does appear when you insert a CD/DVD, but you still have to have a file on your hard drive to burn it.  Having ImgBurn icon on Taskbar is just as convenient and perhaps less of a bother.
Notwithstanding the name, CDBurnerXP [http://cdburnerxp.se/en/home ] burns both CDs and DVDs and works fine with Windows 7 (and 8 for that matter).

It's got a simple "Copy" dialogue that's just as simple as Roxio's.

Although both Roxio and CDBurnerXP let you burn "directly" to a CD, the copies are NOT "... all done in memory ..."  ==>  in both cases they simply write a temp file to the hard drive and then delete it when done.
Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

... here's the Copy Disc dialogue with CDBurnerXP -- if you simply check the CD burner as the target (instead of a hard disk file), the copy will be made without any intervention on your part -- except, of course, to change the discs if you're using the same physical drive for both the source and target.
