Windows 7: Copy Windows 7 DVD?

Copy Windows 7 DVD?

Am I allowed to make a backup copy of the above so that I can keep the original safe and not get it scratcged or damaged?

I've been trying to do this with Acronis Burning Studio but it fails to write. I wondered if there was copy protection?

Yes, you are allowed to make archival backups of your installation media ... as far as I know there is no copy protection..

Tews is right (of course)

Use ImgBurn to make an ISO and then burn it.

Thank you Tews and sup3rsprt. I copied the disk to my hard drive and then burnt it with Ashampoo, so I got there.
I think maybe I need a different DVD-R dye.

You're welcome.

Different dye? Why?

I hope you copied the disk as an image (or 1:1 copy) because otherwise it won't be bootable.
