An EXACT copy of an MRI CD
I recently has an MRI done of my lungs, etc. and was given a copy of the CD/DVD for my own file - copies were sent to consulting physicians.

Long story short, I now have a new physician consulting and need to provide him with a copy of said MRI on CD/DVD. The CD can be inserted into the disc drive on my Win 7 machine and plays no problem. When I try to copy it to disk in order to upload or email, when I go to "play it" and get the MRI up on the screen it says that I need to run it from the CD or call for a license. I have no idea if my new consulting physician has the software on their system.

That leads me to: HOW THE HECK does one make a track by track EXACT EXACT copy of an existing CD/DVD these days?

Input from other tek-savvy members would be appreciated. This is not like laying down tracks of an audio CD, etc., which does NOT result in an EXACT copy of the origin CD to the destination CD. I used to do this all the time but for the life of me can't recall how I did it or what software I used. NERO? Don't know.

Eventually, many of us will be in the same boat... having an MRI of their lungs and vital organs that is needed for baseline comparison or simply a copy of a recent MRI that a new consulting physician wants to see. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The copy must be perfectly the same as the original...... TIA

RE: An EXACT copy of an MRI CD
First, what type of OS are you using (e.g: WindowsX, AppleSomething,Linux)? Secondly, a screen capture of the CD's directory needs to be posted so responders can see what type of files we're dealing with.

RE: An EXACT copy of an MRI CD
CD copying is done with any of several software programs, many are free. I use one called ImgBurn (Google it) since it's more convenient that anything that's Windows natively resident or many of the others like Nero, etc.

I'm unclear as to how you propose to e-mail. Possibly as an ISO file? Snail mailing the CD would be better I'd think.

RE: An EXACT copy of an MRI CD
I hope to be able to put on webspace to have it downloaded from the other end as an ISO image BUT.... this is life/death matter and once the CD/DVD is picked up tomorrow I have no problem making a perfectly exact copy of same and sending the few I need to send by courier. The key is EXACT copy.... when I attempt to run the ISO image from hard drive it is telling me to call for a license. When I run the CD/DVD from the CD/DVD itself it runs no problem and we get a good image of what we need to see (spine) with all the tools available. Strange. I can only surmise that the disk is copywrite protected to protect the software itself from being used except by the doctor or patient involved (that's me). I have no idea what image software is being run at the hospitals that this is going to be sent to by courier (if required) so it MUST be a byte by byte exact duplicate. I am thinking that, like the old days, they have left some blank bytes or tracks as a means of protection, demanding therefore that an absolutely exact copy of the disk be rendered.
I am using WIN7 to make the copy. No idea what will be used at the other end but they are fairly moderm medical facilities.

Win7 can't do a CD copy on its own. You must use some 3rd party software to do that. I already suggested ImgBurn which is a nice freebie but there are plenty of others. Read the following link:

RE: An EXACT copy of an MRI CD
If you use ImgBurn, be SURE to NOT let it install the "OpenCandy" extension. OpenCandy may not be outright "malware," but it's best avoided.

RE: An EXACT copy of an MRI CD
That's good advice. In fact, always opt for a custom install when asked and you will ordinarily be shown what you can opt out of and save yourself some trouble. This is getting to be common practice with freewares since they have to make money some way. I advise unchecking all boxes offered when doing a custom install. Often the custom install option is shown much lighter than the express install so you can easily miss it or think it isn't active.

SLOW DOWN > READ CAREFULLY > OPT FOR "CUSTOM INSTALL" > DESELECT ALL OPTIONS > INSTALL

Don't worry about deselecting something you'll need. Even if you could, you can run the install again and get it.

RE: An EXACT copy of an MRI CD
There should be a viewer on the CD. Often those allow you to make a copy, export, or even zip file the contents.

There is MicroDicom, RadiANT. eFilmLite is what came on the MRI CDs I have but until the latest one, none of them worked. I used MicroDicom. As more and more places are doing the CD thing, more programs are becoming available.

The specialist won't keep the CD. Unless you are giving it to him prior to the appt and don't want to do that. In that case, just drag and drop the contents onto your hard drive. That's what I've done with my MRI CDs several times. Copied it all over, removed the CD, put in a new one, then dragged the stuff onto the new one and Windoze copies it automatically. Done. You can even check it to make sure it works. Or take it to them yourself and let them put it into your file. They'll hand it back to you.
