How to duplicate Navtech CDs

Considering that Navtech doesnt want to support further updates of
the older CD format, I dont see any problem with ripping them off for
a copy now and then.

Who among you has successfully made a copy... How?

I tried using Nero on Win2K, and have tried CDRECORD on Solaris (Unix)
but to no avail. I get an error in read at about 80% and the process
stops.

Any ideas where these CDs can be purchased inexpensively?

Has anyone tried using an IDE DVD player installed instead of the
existing box... or does anyone know whats inside the existing box for
that matter?

Ive had my S-Type for 2 days.... so will investigate.

Id appreciate input if you have any successes to tell about, or any
horrible failures too.

David

I'd use something like Alcohol 120% for that. Its ability to read 'dodgy' CDs
is better than Neros. Although I'd make sure the original CD you're copying from
is clean first (I know its obvious.. but...). Wipe it down very thoroughly
Then try using some of the 'datatype' methods in the CD Copy options..

Its a trial and error method.. but has a good chance of working. I dount theres
any heavy protection on these CDs. But if you read the CD Jewel Case it may have
some clues if its actually protected.
