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.

Cannot copy dvds or cds with my duplicator


Hey! Usually, DVDs have some protections which prevent DVD users copying DVDs freely. Theser protections include CSS protection, region code protection etc. Therefore, you need to remove DVD protections first if you want to copy DVDs. There are some DVD Copy software which can do this. I have a good luck with this DVD Copy which works fine. You can have a try if you like.
Hope that helps.

No software??


Nero is a great program for burning CDs/DVD's. It will NOT burn copy-protected DVD's though.I recommend DVD Decrypter and DVD Shrink for all your movie-copying needs.

Can't Burn Dual-Layer Disks


First, be sure your DVD burner is capable of burning dual-layered discs- Second, it may be rather an issue of copy protection on the disc. Have you succesfully copied commercial DVD's in this fashion? I'm unsure if I'm allowed to mention any software that might assist you in that regard- google is your friend.

Can you be more specific about which error messages you are getting? This is important because it will tell us whether the laser or motor is burned out, or if you are just being stopped by copy protection.
