You could copy the DVD to your hard drive and then drag copies of it onto two flash drives if they have pc's. It is just a matter then for them to insert the usb drive into their pc's and drag the video onto their pc for playback with whatever media player they have.

Another alternative is something like Dropbox a cloud storage system. Each person has a Dropbox folder on their pc and whatever is placed in this folder is synchronised between them. Link here.

ponytail, you need to tell us what programs you have already for disk copying as one of them may be all you need to burn a copy easily. If not, then we can make suggestions for downloading a freebie. After you have copied the dvd to your harddrive, it's very similar to the way you burnt your mp3s to a CD.

Hi Guys sorry for being so long in coming back to you I do not have any programs for disc copying so if you know a decent freebie would be grateful for the info.If I could put it onto a hard hard then I could do one copy to a DVD and one copy onto a flash drive.Sounds simple I know and probably is to you guys but not to me.Thanks again
