Question

When copying my favorite music CDs should I use RAW mode? And what about verify copied data discs (slower), and stage to hard drive for better quality (slower)? I've also turned off normalize. Anyway is this the best way to make an exact copy. I'm using Roxio Creator DE 10.2

That version you have is closer to Easy Media Creator 10 than Creator 2010. It is specialized to be put onto Dell computers. Specialized means some things are deleted or just changed. Support for that version comes directly from Dell. Does yours look like this?

What application are you using?

 

I have no idea what RAW mode is. That is a term usually used for image (picture) format.

 

You may be using the wrong application. There should be no need to verify (usually used with data discs), The stage to hard drive depends on your computer it really doesn't change the quality per se. Yes, I would turn off narmalize because you want an exact copy.

Thank you. Yes I couldn't tell a difference with some of the various settings. But anyhow I'm a big fan of Roxio!

Go to the 'Copy' part of the main menu and look for Copy Disc.

If Dell haven't cut it out of their Creator DE, this is the application to use.

 

OK thank you. And like sknis says leave the normalize off (for an exact copy)?

If you're using "copy disc", there's no setting for normalizing. It just reads the original and makes an identical copy. :)

 

Thank you. That's good to know!

 

One last question. When making an audio CD image, should I save the file(s) as an .iso or a global image file? Does either file type change change the sound at all when it is later burned to a blank CD?

Unfortunately, you can't save an audio CD to an ISO, The ISO standard doesn't permit it.

 

I'd have to reinstall EMC 10 to see if 'Copy Disc' will let you save an image - it might just use a temp file which is deleted after the operation.

I've made images of some of my favorite CDs with (Roxio) Sonic Global Image Files. These are now stored on my computer in my documents. I was wondering does storing the music this way change it in any way when it is finally burned onto a CD?
