Will Clone CD do this?? I know it will make perfect 1 to 1 copies, but I am unsure if making backups of packet written disks are included in it's program!

CD-R or CD-RW? it might make a difference....

If you have a separate CD-ROM or DVD drive to read in, you could just copy the files to another DirectCD formatted CD - or if the burner has burnproof (to cope with likely slowdowns), better to master the files to a burned CD-R as it's a more stable and usable format.

To read a CD-R from directCD outside the writer, it must be closed to ISO (but can be re-opened after).
To read a CD-RW from DirectCD ouside the writer, the drive must be CD-RW capable (multiread) and a UDF Reader must be loaded (default for DirectCD3, extra for DirectCD2.5, can't say for DCD5)

The problem with any direct copy is that you will have to resort to devious tricks to stop DCD gaining control, I'm not sure if the attempt is valid, and there are better ways to handle something WORTH backing up!

There is no protection on Packet written discs. Just copy the files from the CD to your HDD and then from the HDD onto a new CD-R, either in Packet format, or another format.
