Can copy protection kill DVD burner?

We tried to burn a DVD that turned out to have copy protection on it. Since then, the burner has stopped working and causes the computer to freeze up and will not even copy DVDs that we have previously copied. This burner and computer are only a few months old and everything worked perfectly prior to this event. Any suggestions about why this happened and how to fix it? Thanks.

Re: Can copy protection kill DVD burner?

Hi, copying copy protected stuff wont do any damage to your drive, best program to use is dvd shrink, but u need nero installed for it to work, u can download dvd shrink free if you search on i would suggest just returning the drive to the shop you purchased it from as its still under warrenty.. All the best John

First you can try a different CD/DVD burning problem.

If that doesn't help you might need a need CD/DVD burner as the one you have is all burnt out.

If you need more help just comment.

Dvd copying and burning....

Yes, this is how you do it, you just instruct the dvd burner program to 'copy disk' and it will make a temp image on your hard drive, ask for another blank dvd and burn the copy for you. Its not labor intensive but does take time to babysit and label the copies. I use a sharpie initially and later use the label maker to make a decent label.

Any other questions, just use th comment box to do so.

depending on what the file you have theres several ways .You didn't say whether you want to copy or make a dvd movie so i'll give you a few ideas get nero once installed then you need a dvd writer-not a dvd rom the rom will only read and the write will write then get some dvd r+ or dvd rw + insert if you want to burn a file from your pc like a dvd movie which is in dvd format,not an avi file from a torrent site but a dvd rip then place a new dvd in your burner select nero and tell it to burn the dvd with the options for dvd if you want to copy a dvd use nero's options to copy there are other programs you can use it's all up to you
