Help with copying movies onto dvd please

  rosie12 10:50 01 Feb 2006

Hi, I have a cd/dvd burner in my computer and am running windows xp home. I know that I can copy a software dvd for a back-up (even though I have been told this is illegal) but can I also copy a movie dvd, if I can is it only software I have to buy or would I need a differant kind of dvd burner?.....I am only asking this because I am about to buy my son a new compuer, and he wants to be able to copy some of his friends dvds which have movies on them, and wondered if I can just buy him a system like mine or if I would need to get something more specialised? thanks

have you tried doing that on your system? if it works, (which i suspect it will) you will know where you stand.
