DVD/CD copying

  Nuneatonian 09:07 21 Mar 2008

Hi all
I wish to copy some of my new DVDs and CDs just in case the originals get scratched or damaged? (I already have got some that are scratched and play up and jump or freeze in places) how do I copy them? I have a rewriter, but don't know how to do it, there are no instructions on my computer. I have Vista.
thank you

Simply create a new folder in My Videos, give it a name.
Load the disk to be copied into the machine and copy it to the folder.
Then ready place an blank CD/DVD in the drive and drag the contents of the folder to the drive icon
Follow the prompts.
Warning- XP/VISTA burns only CD's
You will need a third party program to burn DVD's

Hi,just a word of warning copying dvd'and cd's is illegal in the UK even when you own the original.most are copywrited and whilst nero will copy cd's with a warning, it cannot copy dvd's unless copywrite protection is removed
