Speaking of handeling them... I rid myself of an assistant recently for tossing my Photoshop 6.0 CD across the table....face down.. Without that, I can't install CS into my other Mac...or future computers! (paid $649.00 for that plastic disc thingy a few years ago)

He's lucky I didn't toss himself face first out the door! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]

BTW, has anyone ever had any problems with softwear not woking...like Photoshop....etc??

In an emergency, you can download an image from a file-sharing network, and use that. I've done it when I couldn't find the original installer or it was non-functional. As long as you've paid for the license, and you use your original serial number, you're not breaking any rules.

By the way, the Photoshop CD is not copy protected. If you just make an exact backup copy of it to another CD, you can store the backup elsewhere for added protection.
Cheers,

Someone who knows how to use a mac will need to tell you the process for the backup. On PC, I just copy all the contents of the cd into a folder on my PC and then packup the folder to CD with the contents of the folder starting at the root of the CD.

The best way to dupe an application CD is to get a copy of Roxio's "Toast" CD-burning application. It has a "direct CD copy" feature that can either copy direct (if you have two CD drives) or make a disk image on your HD that can then be reburned onto a new CD.

The light version is inexpensive and easy to use: I recommend it highly.

Auto backup programs take to long and you backupp a lot of crap you don't want... Make a folder drag your files to it abd burn away... Toast ...Toast...Toast.... did I say Toast? I use DVD's now not CD's because my file are way to big to burn 500 CD's.... I like the white top DVD's the best... AMERICAL.com has some good deals... Get an 8x burner if you can... OH and use TOAST.... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Thanks guys... I have a LaCie 4x DVD burner... but the 4x DVD's are not being sold anymore.....and for some goofy reason, I can only burn DVD's using the Apple brand... I'm not sure why.. anyway, can I use an 8x DVD in my "old" ...6 months old... DVD burner??

I'm a little new at this..

JP - Toast rocks, but since it appears that you don't have it, you can use Disk Utility instead.

Create a Disk Image of the cd, and burn it.

I've done this ONCE, a LONG TIME AGO, so I know it works, but I have since relocated my Toast updater for 10.

Toast is awesome...But don't bother with the Jam (because ProTools can legally be had for free)

Cheers!

Edit> Disk Utility is located at Applications>Utilities>Disk Utility
