how to copy DVD in win7 64-bit

I would like to make a backup of a DVD. Do not know if it's copy-protected.
Should I download/install any specific program, or is it possible to do directly
through Windows 7 64-bit?
I GOOGLEd this topic and read quite a bit, and could not get straight with it.
Thanks, Chuck

I believe one copy is allowed and i usually use Nero and I have two drives in my desktop so I put source disc in the bottom drive put blank DVD in top drive and select copy disc from Nero interface and set to lowest burn setting and that is all there is to it for all the disc's i have made copy's, but i am not sure that is the question your need answered or do you want to know how to copy a DVD with Windows 7 64 bit.

Microsoft did a much better job with the burning utilities and capabilities in Windows 7 than previous versions of Windows, but I still got frustrated with them and quit. I use ImgBurn. It's free and easy. The Official ImgBurn Website

Something like CDBurnXP, ImgBurn, BurnAware, etc would work just fine, assuming the disc is not copy-protected. if it is, then it will depend on the legality, the type of media, the type of protection...many new questions and variables to consider.

researching Nero, I find
Nero is one of the best piece of softwares available in the market for CD/DVD Burning Purposes, but itís quite expensive. Itís bulky and comes with a lot of programs that youíll never really use.
Why not try some freeware CD DVD Burning Apps applications that can serve as an alternative to Nero Burning ROM for your Windows PC?

Looks like it's designed for the Ubuntu community.


I need advice regarding Windows 7.

I'll take a look at ImgBurn. Thanks, guys.

Nero is definitely not designed for Ubuntu...given that it is a Windows program. I'm not sure how you'd get that impression, but it is bulky, and it most certainly is not free like the others, so you are right about those observations.

are these recommendations for Windows 7 4-bit ?

I looked up imgBurn and it seems like lots of 64-bit Windows 7 users are having troubles with it.

Nero in general is bloated and slow. I occassionally use it, but it is still my old Nero 7 version. Anything above 7 and it was generally regarded as junk. It's a shame, because Nero was THE burning app for years.

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.

While Nero 9 free version comes with very few features, its size is still 54MB!

Jeez, all I wanna do is backup a DVD.
