Hi, Pl ensure that pc virtual memory is not full. try to delete all temp file fm %user% profile, and try again.
Also try to burn another DVD for music/video , and also there should not be any data protection.
If probelm persist then try to swap the dvd rom along with the cable.

First option is use a program that removes most copy protection of DVD movies. The best free software program i could recommend is DVD43. Try this together with Nero. This software combination works perfectly. When burning with Nero, try a lower burning speed.
Second option is use a DVD cleaning kit. Never clean the lens of your DVD Drive by opening it by yourself. The lens are very sensitive. A slight re-alignment will cause your drive to unread your disks. Before burning DVD disks, clean it with a soft cloth and wipe the disk from center to edge and never wipe in circular directions, this will create scratches.
Third option is to buy a new DVD drive if option 1 and 2 dont work.

I think its could problems with your media that burned.
You already burned one disk so that disk as no problem when you burned it.

you should use some cleaner to clean the scratches of the DVD and the copy it.
I think you will able to do copy then.

Let me clarify something. mathers9312 asked specifically,

"cant copy _copied_ dvds..."

If you're attempting to copy _copies_ of commercial DVDs, don't. Unless you own BOTH the original AND the copy already made, I doubt you have any imaginable right to make a copy of the copy (and if you owned the original, why attempt making a copy of the copy, anyway?).

That said, IF the original question was a simple misstatement and you are simply attempting to copy DVDs you legally own for purposes of archiving/backup, here are the culprits I'd look to:

1. Parameters in your burning software are mis-set. Try lowering the burn speed, turning off write verification (sure, you might thereby burn a coaster, but in some cases it does help to turn off verification).

2. Defective media: this could be either the burn media or the original media. Clean the original DVD by wiping with a soft, clean cloth from the center hole directly to the outside edge. NEVER wipe the DVD is a circular motion around the circumfrence of the media.

3. Defective DVD writer: This could be something as simple as a dirty lens. DO NOT attempt to wipe the lens by hand or blow it clean with canned air. Either of those techniques could affect alignment/mechanical elements. Purchase a CD/DVD cleaning disk kit. WallyWorld and many other discount stores has them at a very inexpensive price.

4. Copy Prrotection on the original DVD you are attempting to copy. Frankly, this sort of thing chaps my gizzard. :-) We all have a legitimate right under fair use to make backup/archive copies of media we have purchased (as long as we do not sell or give away those copies). http://www.dvd43.com/ is a source for one software application designed to allow folks to make legal copies of CDs/DVDs they have a legal right to make backup/archive copies of.

CHECK THE SPEED YOU ARE BURNING AT AND TRY BURNING A MUSIC CD.
IF YOU CAN BURN A MUSIC CD THE UNIT IS MOST LIKLY WORKING PROPERLY.
(THERE IS A NEW COPY PROTECTION SKEEM OUT THERE AND IT GOES THROUGH THE MOTIONS AND AT THE END ....

How do I burn a dvd movie from the Movie Maker so we can watch it on a regular dvd player


Burning a DVD is not all that simple. Some Emachines come with a DVD player drive but not burner. Just because your system has windows movie maker on it does not mean it can actually produce them. You need to make sure it actually has a DVD writer on it and not just a player.

If so I would definatly look into some additional software for making DVDs as movies maker is flakyand not all that great. If you are not finding the option to burn the movie in movie maker the changes are you do not have a DVD burner insalled but just a DVD player drive.

NOT SRE WHAT THE PROBLEM IS NEED TO BURN DVD FROM ANOTHER DVD AND


Before you decide to burn a DVD, it is important to know what kind of DVD you would like to burn. The type of DVD will usually determine the process you use to go about burning. The three most common types of DVDs to burn are Data DVD's, Multimedia Files to a DVD and making a copy and burning a commercial DVD. The burning process will be determined by the type of data you want to burn. You could do three possible actions:
  1. Burn Data to a DVD
  2. Burn Multimedia Files to a DVD
  3. Copy and Burn a Commercial DVD
Burning Data to a DVD Ordinary data such as documents, spreadsheets, database files and backup files require only general DVD burning programs. The data that you burn can be viewed on any type of computer with a DVD drive. Popular DVD burning software programs include Nero 9 and Super DVD Creator 9.8.8. You will need to purchase or download any of the DVD burning software titles that are available on the market. For some computers that are purchased new, DVD burning software already comes installed and configured for your machine and DVD burner. You just need to open up your DVD burner software, choose to burn a data DVD and follow the instructions. You can usually burn a full length DVD (about 4.7 GB of data) in less than 20 minutes and even quicker with high speed DVD burners. Burning Multimedia Files to a DVD Multimedia files are usually larger files that include video either recorded from a TV set, camcorder or digital camera or downloaded from the internet. You may also want to convert an old VHS tape to a more user friendly DVD. With today's DVD authoring tools, you can easily burn multimedia files and give them professional features such as adding a title or menu page or cataloguing many TV shows that you have already saved on your computer's hard drive. Some DVD burning software packages even allow you to add subtitles that you can create yourself. You can add DRM (digital rights management) with the help of your burning software, if you are creating commercial videos that you would want to make difficult to copy. Copying and Burning a Commercial DVD Many people use their DVD burner to burn copies of commercial DVDs. In most parts of the world, it is illegal to copy a commercial DVD and sell or distribute it. However, you may want to make a copy for archiving purposes. There are many tools that can copy a commercial DVD. However, apart from the normal DVD burner and DVD burning software, you will also need special software that can decode or crack the digital rights management. It is also important to note that besides cracking the code and copying the data of the commercial DVD, you may need to shrink the file. Most commercial DVDs are dual layer and have between 7 and 8.4 GB of data. These files must be compressed to fit on a normal 4.7 GB DVD. Once you have cracked the commercial DVD and compressed it, you can use ordinary DVD burning software to burn your DVD.

HOW DO I COPY A DVD TO MY ACER 6920G LAPTOP THEN BURN IT TO BLANK DVD. HAS A BLUERAY READER/REGULAR BURNER AND FROM WHAT I CAN SEE, HAS SOFTWARE THAT BURNS TO DVD FROM LAPTOP BUT NOT DVD TO LAPTOP


You can use a DVD copy program like Nero if there is one on your computer.

Nero checks to make sure that you DVD isn't copy protected before it copies it. If it is you won't be able to copy it.

Windows XP or Vista does't provide DVD copy software built into Windows.

Cannot copy files to DVD disks


First of all you should have the recording tab ON. Have you tried burning using Nero instead of dragging and dropping? This may solve the problem.

However, if you prefer to drag and drop, try setting the write speed to a slower setting, even if the dvd burner has faster write capabilities.

1. I do not think it is a hardware issue.

2. You can try replacing the IDE cable, but if you can read the contents of the disk it does not suggest a communication issue between the drive and mobo.

3. I do not think that the burning software is to blame, when you drag and drop you are actually using a windows based burning software that is installed with the operating system.

4. set up your files to burn through nero, let the software do the work.

I had the same issue with my dvd burner, although slightly different error messages, solved it by using nero instead.
