Dvd copying and burning....

I have old home movies I have converted to dvd's. This process takes alot of time to make each copy, and I am looking for a way to make copies of these dvd's on my laptop. Is there a way to do it? I have a newer laptop(acer) with a dvd burner. I guess I need to copy this dvd I just made to my computer, and then burn it to make copies? Is this possible?

I dont know if this is where to ask this question, and any info would be greatly appreciated

thank you for your time

To convert dvd to computer, you should get dvd ripper which ripping any DVD clip, selecting target subtitle and audio track, ripping long movie , cropping DVD video, captures a particular sceen from DVD when preview and rips dvd with s few clicks.
As ripping dvd, I use Daniusoft DVD Ripper, it comes with all my request and rips dvd without lost.

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.

    Oh, OK. I thought you had burned them on this machine. You can use the Windosw built in program to copy and paste, but do a trial effort first without to many expectations. Its hard to say with the built in program. You could use the Windows Media Player interface though where you may have more luck, that's what the built in program is designed for in the first place.

    Open WMP
    Insert you master.
    Press Stop.
    Right click the title bar and use the subsequent mouse click menu to find the copy disk command if you don't see it in plain sight.

    Again, any other questions just ask. You could download a trial version of Ahead Nero to get this done, its usually supplied with most new DVD Burners, maybe a friend has a copy that hasn't been registered already, as it is a working version they hope you will buy and if you like it its not a bad piece of software, you just have to manually check for updates all the time. And the version that comes with burners or the download won't let you edit DVD movies you need the full version for that.

    Yes you can use the Windows DVD Maker.

    Did that do it for you? When this works out and if I assisted in getting it done, would change the rating to Fixed if we fixed your problem?

How to remove iTunes DRM copy-protection and burn iTunes movie to DVD?


Many friends ask me how to burn iTunes movies to DVD, so that they can enjoy their movies on large screen TV. For computer newbie, I will recommend them to get an Apple TV; it can connect your iTunes library to TV, the only thing you need to do is to sync movies from iTunes to Apple TV box. An Apple TV costs $299, if you think this is beyond your budget, you can use software to do that same thing, which is a lot cheaper.
Now, let me explain the details. Because movies and TV shows purchased from iTunes store have DRM copy-protection, you have to remove the DRM protection before burning them to DVDs for playback on your home DVD player.

What you need are: Aimersoft DVD Creator & Tunebite. You can download them from:
http://www.topsreviews.com/dvd-creator/dvd-creator-aimersoft.html
http://www.dvd-video-converters.com/dvdvideosuite/backup-copy-protected-music-and-video-with-tunebite.html

    Part1. How to remove DRM copy-protect from iTunes purchased movie or TV shows?
    Step1. Download and install Tunebite, just follow the installation wizard, this software will install several high-speed dubbings to speed up the conversion, when you see the pop up warning messages, just click “Keep on going” to finish the installation, which may take a few minutes.

    Step2. Then run Tunebite, click “Add” button to load your iTunes purchased movies or TV shows, the default directory is My Document\My Music\iTunes\iTunes Music
    In the “Convert Video to” drop down list, select “WMV7 (1024 kbps)”, then click “Start” to begin the conversion. If you don’t know where the converted videos are saved, you can click “Folder” to locate the files on your computer.

Tips: this software can also remove DRM from purchased music and audio books; it also works for other online stores such as Zune, Amazon, etc.

Part2. How to burn DRM-free iTunes video to DVD?
Step1. After you remove the DRM copy-protection from iTunes purchased movies, download Aimersoft DVD Creator and install it. (Note, you need a DVD Burner to burn DVD, so make sure your DVD Drive has DVD+RW or DVD-RW symbol)

Step2. Run Aimersoft DVD Creator, click “Load Video” button to import your DRM-free videos, and then drag the videos to the storyboard. If you want to burn videos to dual-layer DVD (DVD-9), at the bottom of the interface, select “DVD-R 9.0G”, you can also customize video quality there. And the used disc space is shown on the disc space bar underneath the storyboard.

Step3. If you just want to burn the video to DVD without adding any special effects, just click the “Burn” tab. Here you will see the following options:
“Burn to”: you can burn the video to DVD or create an ISO file on your hard drive.
“Drive”: If your computer has multiple DVD burners, you can select any of them.
“TV Standard”: NTSC is 30 fps. It’s used in USA, Canada and Japan. PAL is 25 fps and it’s used in Europe and Asia.
After the above steps, put a blank DVD disk into your drive and click “Start” to burn your movie.

Burning process is very slow and how do you copy without the deaf version


Great question the issue can be with your Internet provider and their speed allotment for your end from their end. Or the burner is an old one with not much speed with it. It has to be at 7200 RPM and able to burn at 24 or higher per second on a burn actually the slower the better because it will stop a lot of glitching with a slower burn and not miss anything in between because the slower the less CPU Speed it will use up.

To just make a copy of a DVD or CD I personally use XPBurner Pro free version. Click Here to download the free version. Full download! This is just an alternative. When I convert avi movies to play in a regular DVD movie player I personally use WinAvi 8.0 this is a quick software conversion and burning process about 10-15 minutes to convert and burn movies from off the Internet. Just a suggestion. Click Here to download this link for the software.

Here is the code for it.
Name: Regnow Order
Code: EBE95B780B867091C8F6D58FE5B65B9EBA6E8D9D2075F3A5


I hope that this assisted you with this issue, please be sure to place a vote for me if I assisted you in any way! Thanks for using Fixya! John

I copied old vhs home movies to dvd and they wont play on any dvd player


Whether the movies would play or not depends on the format in which it was copied to the DVD. It is good for you to know that DVDs have their specific format that they work with.
Burning a media file onto a DVD disc without regarding the format would render it unable to play on any DVD player.
This may be the cause of your problem. You have to take it someone who is a professional in this field and ask him to help you re-convert or dub them into the DVD disc.
Hope this was helpful?

My roxio creator 2010 converts tivo to dvd so slow - a 103 minute movie took 7 hours to convert and burn to disc and the picture is **** but the audio is fine. i also can't seem to trim any tivo recordings...


I like burning tivo to DVD with windows DVD maker. I use Pavtube for coverting TiVo videos . It works very well and I haven't really had any problems. Conversion speed seems fine and the videos look good. I saw Pavtube mentioned in the TiVo forums as a good way to convert for the iPad so I decided to try it. It's much better than TiVo's converter. http://www.pavtube.com/guide/copy-tivo-to-dvd.html

How do I burn/copy a DVD


you have to rip the dvd using software like DVDRipper. Then you can burn the resulting file to a 4.5 GB DVD. Usually the movie will be around 7.5 GB and the ripper reduces the size to fit that.
