Windows 7: copy dvd to hard drive

copy dvd to hard drive

A friend burned a home video to dvd and has let me borrow it. She has no objections to me copying the dvd to either my HD or to another dvd disc. Please could anyone explain how to do this and if I require additional software to complete this task. Thanks

Welcome to the forums arranske

Since you have not filled out your system specs we must assume you at least have a dvd burner on your system; if so you can just do a copy using your burning software.

Since this is a home movie it will not have any copy protection and it will fit on a blank DVD so it is a very simple process.
