    Rip it to an image when you first use it and never use the actual CD again, just use the image or a copy you burn from that image.

    Burning it takes up space from my hard disk.

    if you rip and then burn the CD you can ensure the original wont get scratched + you can remove the file from your HD. You can get CD's for as low as £10 per 100 pack, and probably even lower if you look around, so thats literally £0.10 per CD which is well worth it to protect your CD's.

    CD Condoms! Err... d_skins (BestBuy.com)!
    Note: I do not test code. I just write it off the top of my head. There might be bugs in it! But if any thing I gave you the overall theory of what you need to accomplish. Also there are plenty of other ways to accomplish this same thing. I just gave one example of it. Other ways might be faster and more efficient.
