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

    can I use the windows dvd maker program that came in my computer, or do I need a different program? Sorry for the ignorance, I am just a little slow when it comes to these computers. Thanks

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?

your gonna need conversion software to convert your movie files wether from avi to dvd files mpg to dvd and so forthn once converted you will burn those dvd files to an dvd cd using an software like Nero and so forth.
1. get WinAVI wich can convert any video files to dvd files. 2. get ImgBurn = free, then burn movie files to cd. make sure though before burning that in WinAVI that you go through advance settings and set the TV system to NTSC for US, if set to PAL it won't play in your dvd player, cause thats european version. if need more detial info let me know

Dvd burning

VSO ConvertXToDVD does what you want. It costs $40. If you buy it now you'll be able to upgrade to 3.0 when it comes out. WinAVI Video Converter, DVDSanta, and Avi2DVD are also recommended, but I have had the best experience with the first program.

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
