Windows 7: how to copy DVD in win7 64-bit

You still have to worry about the potential copy protection, so what kind of DVD is it?

As for Nero Free, it is still a huge, bloated app, with the same or less features than the other free apps.

ah, yes, my mistake. This is a new area for me, copying DVDs.
The original plays on my computer and does not indicate +R or -R.
How do I decide which format to copy to?

It doesn't matter - some very old dvd players don't work with +r.

I believe most macs can't handle +r either.

If you have a pc that is not ancient, both formats will be fine.

If it is copy protected - then clearly that is asking you not to copy it.

Yes, all of those above apps are for x64. You'll find very little that doesn't support x64 these days, thankfully. Just go to the websites of the app you choose and grab the x64 version.
Has no-one ever told you that Nero 7 is not fully compatible with Windows 7, and Nero 9 is far better than 7 ever was.

I tried using N7 with W7 and was disapointed, on upgrading to N9 the speed came back, and like I said it was far better.

Complaining about things is OK if you are up-to-date, if you use out of date and incompatible applications thats your fault.

Wow, where to begin. First off, Nero7 may not list that it is officially compatible with Windows 7...but it works perfectly fine, at least for the apps I use out of the suite. It's common knowledge on any burning forum you read that Nero died after 7. That was it's last good, lean version. After that, starting with 8...it's been bloated.

I have no idea what "speed" you are referring to. Not once did I complain about Nero 7's speed. In fact, you are more than welcome to read up on the subject, or try them yourself...but Nero 7 is a much leaner, lighter app than any version after it.

Save your lecture for when you have your facts straight. Nero 7 works perfectly fine with Windows 7 x64. Don't believe me? Read up on the subject. Do yourself another favor and always remember that newer doesn't always equal better. Just because Nero 8, 9, and 10 have higher revision numbers...doesn't mean they are better than Nero 7.

Do you mean within BurnAware, or Nero, or something else?
