Copy from DVD to DVD

Likes # 0

I requested a specialist seed catalogue but it only came as a CD rom which is ok as it plays fine.I would like to give my son a copy but sure of the easiest way to copy it.I have a external CD writer as well as the internal one.It would be almost impossible to print it as there is so much to it so doing a copy seems the only way.Can someone advise please.

Daft me. The copy section just copies like for like. The catalogue was on a CD auto run disc.

Although Ashampoo can create iso files, rip and do most things in a very simple interface I'd also keep ImgBurn . It's more complicated but comes into its own if you need to slipstream or tweak settings for burning.

You only need one DVD writer, put the dvd in thast you want to copy then in the software you use click copy. it will tell you when to put a blank dvd in the drive

Ponytail can you clarify its a dvd or a cd either way Imgburn would have done it and doubt you would have any of the problems thats you got .Ig youy create an Iso image its exactly as the original disc NOT the same as just ripping/copying files to a pc

I've used all three of those programs mentioned and some more, I come to conclusion that Ashampoo is definitely the most versatile and user friendly.

I have used it so much that when one of their frquent special offers came up I bought the full version which is very versatile.

For editing Music their Music 3 is also good value at about £3 on special offer.

All are one time payments no annual fees.

I burn about fifty CD/ DVDs a month.

By the way, if you have two burners select the "On the Fly" option box if you don't want to put it onto your hard disc, that way it just goes straight from one burner to the other.

Muergo , with respect eedcam is right in saying ImgBurn is the best but it needs a lot of studying. As for 'normal' use you can't fault Ashampoo Burning Sudio. Last time I used ImgBurn was when I slipstreamed SP3 to an XP disc.

I can't remember why but I uninstalled imgBurn, something I couldn't get on with as I usually keep many programs just in case as I have a large 2Tb storage capacity which I don't use half of.

Are you comparing with Ashampoo burning Studio version 11 which I believe is the latest and certainly better than previous versions, the paid 11 gives more functions than I have used yet but when I put the editing capacity of Music3 it gives great flexibility.

I am still experimenting as I only recently had a fibre optic upgrade to my broadband giving 50Mb and greater streaming possibilities.

I was considering burning BluRay but the cost of the blank discs make the marginal improvement not worth it.
