Basically i want to copy a CD for playback in the car rather than having the original CD in the car. Is there something inbuilt with Win7 that'll let me do a clone, or do i need some 3rd party software? I used to have Nero but lost it.

Depends if it`s got any copy protection on it (if it has you may need to get rid of that and this forum isn`t really the place to discuss that).

If it hasn`t just open windows media player and select burn, drag the contens of the cd to the burn list and hit "start burn".

I would just rip the MP3s and then burn them back to a playable CD.  Most new cars these days, and CD plays, can play MP3s anyway.

Windows Media player has options to rip the songs from the cd. Then as +techbeck said, just drag and drop into a new CD.

If you want to just straight copy, use the trial version of PowerISO and hit "copy" and select make image. then open it and burn it to a fresh disc.

Alternatively if you have two CD/DVD drives in the machine in question you can burn directly to another disc from the original using the same copy procedure in PowerISO

Why can`t i edit my post :angry:  Forgot you`ll need to rip first, maybe choose Audio Quality as Best from Rip Settings. Good tutorial here ->

ImgBurn should be able to do this and it's free. Just pay attention during the install process and turn off the sponsored install options.
