If you are recording or replicating bootable disk images using a Microsoft Windows PC and a CD or DVD recording drive for use booting OpenVMS, the CDburnerXP Pro package has been seen to successfully generate disk images. It's also free. Some of the major commercial optical media recording tools for Windows have shown mixed results with OpenVMS disk images, variously corrupting the ODS-2 or ODS-5 disk structures involved.

CloneCD is perfect tool to copy CDs and DVDs of "unknown" format in MS windows.
I use CloneCD to copy VMS CD-s for a long time.
Also also linux can do it with no problem.

Re: How to make copy of Openvms dvd?

Short answer: use Linux and dd and its burning tools. Use what you're familiar with.

If you're on Windows and not Linux, I usually recommend the freeware CDburnerXP Pro package that was already mentioned. It's been more reliable.

Or use the Darwin ports tools to load the recording tools onto your Mac OS X box. (Mac has recording tools, but doesn't seem to recognize a raw burn.) Or get yourself Toast.

Or use OpenVMS and it's recording tools; disk-ripping tools are latent in V8.3 and later, and the recording tools are documented.

Various versions of Nero I've worked with have had less than satisfactory results with proper ISO-9660:1988 subset and El Torito disks and ODS-based disks; the disks that OpenVMS and Itanium systems in general tend to use. I expect Nero probably works fine for the standard formats,

And welcome to ITRC.

I use cdrtools on my VMS systems to do this
sort of thing. I don't use Windows enough to
know what works there.

"I tried nero" doesn't tell us which version
of that product you tried, or exactly what
you tried to do with it. "it does not
recognise dvd properly" doesn't tell us what
actually happened when you did whatever you
did.
