Hi, I am trying to copy a DVD using the copy section of Roxio Easy media creator and get the message that no destination drive is recognised. The drive shows up in My Computer and I am able to burn DVDs from ordinary videos. Any help appreciated. Regards Carper
Perhaps because with the huge size of DVD files you may have to make an image file on your HD first and copy that. I have to do that anyway if I'm burning a whole DVD-full OR You have only one DVD reader/writer OR The source is copywrite protected
Thanks again for your reply. I use NTFS as being more stable.I have received details from another forum which seeks to resolve the copyright issue. You might just be interested in the following link
click here. Other contributors say that it is not s good idea to try to copy Disc to disc although various programmes claim you can do this. Someone might be able to tell me how to make sure the drive is activated but it is a bit beyond me. Carper
This seems to be a person to person thread, but again for what it is worth....!
To be sure that the burner is active you could try setting the DVD burner up with any dummy file, right to the point when you tell it to burn. Along the way you will be asked which drive you want to use to do the business.
If it accepts the DVD writer as valid then you know the drive is working, and there is no need to go any further.
As for defeating the legal copyright (if that is what you imply...) least said about that on this forum the better. F.E. quite properly will delete the post
