    Simple answer is DVD X-Copy for straight copys of dvd's or if you have mpeg files or similar use DVD Builder which is bundled with Easy CD / DVD Creator 6 and its just a simple drag and drop :)

    Hope thats of some help.

    good tip m8 use a dvd- rw disc to start so you dont have a pound each coasters

    but yeh if you wanna copy a dvd youll have to do a straight 1:1 copy sort of like clone cd as dvds have security crap on them... if you know what i mean

    okie go to it tells how to rip any format, also to back up your dvd 99% of time it has the security **** on it. get dvd decrpter, put it in file mode and rip all the files to your hard drive, retail dvd come in 2 type dvd9 and dvd 5 although you should have that for you have a burner.. only kind public can burn are dvd5(unless dual sided disc).. if the dvd you wanna back up is dvd5 make 2 folders called
    1) "VIDEO_TS" where all the files go into
    2) "AUDIO_TS" 99% of time nothing in it, i backed up over 100dvd and have never had anything in it yet

    then just load nero and and go to burn data disc and add the 2 folders and burn and *poof* you are good to go .. if the movie is dvd9 then i would suggest instacopy or dvd9-5, or CCE to encode 1st and 2nd of those downsample really easy just kinda point and click where cce you have to do all the tech **** of reencoding whole movie but the qualityon cce is far greater than others

    *note if it is a dvd9 you can also del the extra's .vob files if you do no wish to have them and burn but remember when playing you do not have them

    To copy DVDs as opposed to making your own, one of the very best is DVD Encrypter.
    This will bypass macrovision and create an ISO image file, or individual file copies .
    The ISO can be mounted as a Virtual Cd Drive by Daemon Tools Software. to be viewed by Power DVD etc.

    The Exe files on both will fit on a Floppy disc !
    Both programs are still freeware.
