    If you used imgburn to burn the disc, use imgburn to make a copy of the backup. Simply use the "create image file from disc" option. You cant use dawdump (if thats what you used to rip your original) since it will just give errors on backups.
    If I have helped you in any way, please thank me by pressing the little thanks button.

    Thats right! if you have the disk image burned already,
    just create an image from disk with Img burn.
    then burn image to disk with Img burn.

    Jason34 is correct. Hope it works out!

    This is very easy to do a backup of a back up game on Nero

    Start Nero StartSmart

    Change the Tab at the top to DVD

    Click BACKUP

    Click COPY DVD

    Change the writing speed down to 4x

    Insert the disc that you want to copy.

    After a while Nero will ask you to insert blank media (DVD-R is the best).

    You now have a working copy.
