Re: how do you copy an audio cd?

1. You can copy files to you HDD and then burn them to blank CD.
2. Use Brasero to copy CD. FIles are stored in tmp folder which is deleted after burn process.
3. You can rip you audio CD ( Asunder CD Ripper, Ripper for X.....) to many formats and then burn them to disc.
