Windows 7: DVD Copy

27 Apr 2011   #1

Microsoft Windows Professional 32bit
DVD Copy

Hi all,

I'd like to make a DVD of a data DVD,
not a video or movie but a copy of my Driver DVD,
the only programs I have are ones that wont let you
make a data DVD, only movies and alike.

I would lake to have a good program that's easy to use
but no more then $40 - $50, any help would be nice.

Imgburn is a (free) good popular all rounder (inc dual layer data DVDs)
The Official ImgBurn Website
data, music, video....
I've used it to make backups of dual layer software installation disks.

You can actually use a lot of burning programs if you go the "detour" via creating an ISO image first.
like with Magic Disk

Mount ISO Files - Freeware MagicDisc Download
But my first choice would also be ImgBurn that mjf mentioned.

1, write image file to disc?

3, create image file from disc?
4, create image file from files/folders?
5, verify disc?
6, discovery?

yeah I know..they are not known to have the most organized webpage
I always do a 2 pronged approach.
First Option 3 to create an ISO image (which also is a great way to have a backup copy of your DVD on your hard drive).
and then Option 1 to write the image to any DVD of your choosing.
If you want you could then pick option 5 to verify that the write operation went OK (normally I just just skip that as long as I don't get any error message during the burn.
