How-to: copy a CD or DVD on Windows 7

My sister called today to ask me how to copy a DVD in Windows 7.  My answer, as well as all the Windows 7 users at work, was “I don’t know.”

Windows 7 doesn’t come with a disk utility like the other PC maker, so you have to either use a disk utility that comes with your computer pre-installed by the manufacturer. Look through your program list and find one that says something like “Burn CDs” or “Burn DVDs.” Roxio or Sonic are some programs that are typically bundled.

For those of you who don’t have a pre-installed program, try using Nero 9 Lite. It is free, and does basic CD and DVD burning and copying.
