I've used Nero to do a "Disc Copy". You can also rip an ISO image and save it on your hard drive (that's what I do - do a disc copy, but the destination drive is Nero's "Image Drive" - or Nero's "Save Tracks" command also works). Lots of other methoods won't retain the disc's boot sector (I believe vLite could re-construct the boot sector - but I've never tried it with W7).

I like to use Ashampoo Burning Studio Free Edition..

Does everything I need it to do.. from burning Blue-Ray to Mp3's and burning and saving ISO's from disks for backup.
