    OK, I hearby nominate myself for stupid question of the day but I have to ask.

    When copying a redbook CD using Roxio CD copier software. Is the copy or CD-R an exact bit for bit digital copy that will sound exactly the same as the original.

    i've always wondered that myself. i think it may depend on the app? i know a lot of people here like Exact Audio Copy - which i think is bit-for-bit. not sure about roxio though...although that's what i use. i probably couldn't tell the difference anyway.

    The way I understand the copyright laws I can make a copy for my own use. I don't believe selling the original CD that I purchased is illegal. Now if I were to sell the copy that's another story.
    I still would like to know the answer to my question.

    I believe that once you parted with the original, the copy in your possession would be deemed illegal.

    I have Nero express software, If I use the "Copy Entire Disc" selection at say 4kbs copy speed would I be losing quality? I just assumed it would be perfect!

    Wes, my guess is that it will be as perfect as we need it to be.

    If you have been using Nero Express, I'm curious whether you've figured out a couple of things tho, that have me puzzled.

    I asked these questions a few months ago, but no answers at that time.

    Post the original question at the Steve Hoffman forum (www.stevehoffman.tv/forums) and you will almost surely get an answer from one of the people there who are extremely knowledgeable regarding CD recording software.

    John, nope, I'm pretty much a newbie to this burning stuff. I'm lucky they give the Copy Entire CD option as I would be lost other wise!
