How to make a copy of a DVD

My friend has given me a dvd she made of a concert she recorded on Sky Plus. I would like to make an extra copy as backup because I am forever losing dvd's. Please can someone inform me as to how I can do this on my computer. I am running Windows 7 and have one drive for dvd/cd's.

Can't help you with the copy, but I'm not sure this is legal; if not the FE will soon let you know!

"I'm not sure this is legal"

Technically it isn't, but as you're simply making the backup for your personal use I'm sure you need not fear a knock on the door from the copyright police.

In general terms, recording TV programmes is OK, as long as you don't start making multiple copies of the recording, and passing them around amongst your mates.

"recording TV programmes is OK"

Even concerts, and passing them on? Would the Performing Rights Society be happy with that?

Well even copying a CD is technically illegal but the OP was ''How To'' not ''is it Legal''.Good grief we are not talking about Pirate copies of copywritten DVD's.
