We directly cannot copy a file from hard drive to DVD, we need a DVD writer to burn it on the DVD disk. Hard drive is a removeable device and we can read and write data as we need but DVD is a non-removeable disk and we can only write it for once, the process of writing or copying file to the DVD through a DVD-writer is called burning.

There are many different kinds of DVD’s, and knowing what kind you would like to copy is important before making the decision to burn. The process used to burn DVD’s usually depends on the kind of DVD but three common types are used the most when burning. They are: Burning Data DVD’s, Storing Multimedia Files on a DVD, and burning Commercial DVD’s. We’ll take a look at these three methods below.

Burning Data to DVD’s
The easiest way to burn DVD’s is by copying everyday normal data. This includes ordinary files like documents, spreadsheets, and database files and is the easiest method because no special decryption software or regionally specific encoding is needed. Any computer with a DVD drive will easily play these burned DVD’s.
It is a good idea to download some of the multiple free DVD burning programs available to test them out. You may also want to check out commercial DVD burning software available for purchase. Most newly purchased computers already come with a DVD burner and burning software installed and ready to use. All you have to do is start the DVD burning software, make sure to select DATA DVD as the type of DVD to be burned, then follow the prompts. A full length DVD contains around 4.7GB of data and can be burned in around 20 minutes with an average DVD burner. Higher speed DVD burners will be able to burn your data much more quickly.

Burning Multimedia Files to DVD’s
While the process of burning audio and video (multimedia) files to a DVD is basically the same as burning data DVD’s, multimedia DVD’s require additional thought before copying. This is because you will most likely want to add some extra features when burning a precious wedding video or converting old VHS tapes to a friendlier and longer lasting format.

The DVD authoring tools available today make burning multimedia DVD’s with a professional touch a breeze. Convenient features like Chapters (to skip to a specific section of longer videos), Menu pages (perfect for a wedding video), and Titles (to index multiple TV shows or videos already stored on your computer) gives everyone the ability to burn polished DVD’s easily. Subtitles that you create yourself can even be added by some DVD burning software and Digital Rights Management (DRM) may also be available. DRM allows you to create commercial grade videos that are tough for others to easily copy to another DVD.

Burning Commercial DVD’s
Burning copies of commercial DVD’s is one of the primary uses of DVD burners and is enjoyed by many people who own them. While it may not be illegal to burn copyrighted material for your own use, in most areas of the world it is illegal to make copies of commercial DVD’s to sell or give away to others. You can still burn copyrighted material, including commercial DVD’s, if the burned copy is for personal use. Some uses may include creating a DVD archive or backup, or having an extra copy available for use in the computer or car’s DVD player.

A commercial DVD can be copied by many tools, but decoding software specifically designed to remove (”crack”) digital rights management will be needed in addition to a regular DVD burner and DVD burning software. Besides copying the commercial DVD’s data and decoding any digital rights management, it is also important to note that most of the time you will need to shrink the file first.

The majority of commercial DVD’s hold between 7 and 8.4GB worth of data and are known as dual layer DVD’s. A normal blank DVD will hold 4.7GB of data, which means the larger amount of data on a commercial DVD needs to be compressed before it will fit on a blank DVD. After a commercial DVD has been cracked and the files compressed, ordinary DVD burning software can be used to burn the new DVD. Simply start your favorite DVD burning program then follow the prompts.

Since the process of copying commercial DVD’s can seem daunting to someone doing it for the first time, several companies have developed suites of DVD copying programs that simplify the process. These software tools will usually crack and decode the DVD, compress the files small enough to fit on a blank DVD, and can even add extra features before burning everything onto a normal DVD.

Now that you know how to burn DVD’s, you’re well on your way to burning your first one. Start by checking out free DVD burning programs as mentioned earlier, or just download one and jump right in. Remember to bookmark this article as reference should you run into any problems.

Have fun and happy DVD burning!

Best Regards

Copying dvd to hard drive so i can copy i have a family dvd that i would like to copy how do i do it


It really depends on the DVD content. Commercial DVDs are copy-protected, and unless you have specialized (and usually *******) software, you copy attempts will not work. Home-recorded DVDs can be copied, but again, content is key. You can do something as simply as copy the files to the hard drive and re-burn them to the new DVD, but that will produce a DVD that will work in a PC but might not work in a DVD player is there is video content to be watched. You can copy the disc as a single-file ISO, which provides an exact copy of the disc. To do that you'll need a program that can make and burn ISO files. There are a number a free ones available out there, just be careful what you go for as some are known to be accompanied by adware.

I have my pics in memory card & its nt copying to my computer . its error coming in it parameter incorrect then hw i can copy my images & i dont want loose those images???????


C:\Users\Bob\Downloads> copy Update.iso F:\
will take you here
Why is the second file copy failing?
The hint is the file extension: *.iso, which suggests that this is a CD or DVD image, and DVD images have the feature that they tend to be really big.
Like more than 4GB big.
USB thumb drives tend to be formatted with the FAT32 file system rather than with NTFS. And FAT32 has a maximum file size of 4GB minus one byte.
The user confirmed that the Update.iso file was larger than 4GB and that the USB thumb drive was formatted as FAT32.
Mind you, the error message doesn't help at all in identifying that this is what's going on. I don't know where it's coming from, but my guess is that somewhere inside the copy command, it tries to create the destination file and set its file size. Since the file size is out of range for FAT32, the call fails with the error ERROR_INVALID_PARAMETER, and that's what ends up bubbling out to the user.
But at least now you know what the confusing error message is trying to tell you.

hope this helps

Cd drive and burner are not working


Test the disc by using the command prompt to copy files loadTOCNode(2, 'whattotry'); Try to copy files from the disc to the hard disk. If the hard disk cannot copy files, the disc might be damaged. If the files are copied successfully, there may be file types on the disc that the hard disk cannot read, or there may be a problem with the CD or DVD drive.

To test the disc by using a command prompt to copy files, follow these steps:
  1. Create a test folder on the hard disk, and then give the folder a folder name such as "cdtest." This is the folder to which you will try to copy files.
  2. Click Start, and then click Run.
  3. Copy and paste (or type) cmd in the Open box, and then press ENTER.
  4. Copy the files from the CD or DVD drive to the test folder on the hard disk. To do this, type xcopy DiscDrive:\*.* HardDiskDrive:\cdtest /v /e at the command prompt, and then press ENTER. Make sure that you replace “cdtest” with the name of your test folder.

    Note In this step, DiscDrive is the drive letter of the CD or DVD drive with which you have problems. HardDiskDrive is the drive letter of the hard disk drive to which you want to copy these files.
  5. If you are asked whether cdtest specifies a file name or a directory name, press F.
  6. If you successfully copied the files from the disc to the hard disk, the disc is not damaged. To remove the copied files, type rd /s cdtest at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.

    If you cannot copy the files, the disc may be damaged. Contact the manufacturer of the damaged disc to obtain a replacement.

I'm trying to transfer movie to computer hard drive using 123 copy dvd


Simple. When you copy the dvd, you do as usual as if you were going to copy it to another disc. Then when it asks you to insert the new disc to copy to, click abort. It will then ask you if you really want to abort, then you click yes. Then it will ask you if you want to clear the data you have just created. Click NO. Then you can find the .vob file in The Copy 123 Temp folder. This folder is always created for optical storage. It's what holds the movie until you write it to a disc. Hope this helps. Cheers.

Please insert a disk into drive


You can only copy files to a blank disk by using programs like NERO or by using a re-writeable disk like DVD-RW which you can format and use it like a hard drive. You need also burner not an ordinary DVD or CD player.

Dvd file system


The first is rather easy. You will have to finish the DVD to get it working. After copying a title, finish the DVD and put in you computer's DVD player. Either the film should start to play or you will be prompted whether you want to show the contents or other options. If either of this happens, you are good to go and you can copy the Video_TS folder which should be visible to your hard drive. Done it several times.
The second solution is something I try to figure out myself but it seems DV in is really IN and not OUT....

Best,
