Disk backup??????

Some of the software manufactures are adding copy protection to their CDs. So that might be the problem.

Are you using the CD copy function? Or using drop and drag? Many CDs require you to make a direct copy. A drop and drag copy doesn't work.

XP does not have a built in copy function. You need either the ISO recorder tool from Microsoft, or 3rd party CD burner software to make a copy.
