What is the best software to use to do 8 copies of a DVD which is not protected in any way (it is a home produced one)

If you have W7, why not use their own DVD burner?

P.S. If you want a freebie, try ImgBurn. I've used it for ISO disks for ages.

Serif and Ashampoo offer free download DVD cutting software. You could also have a look at and for suitable and recommended downloads

Thanks both Onthelimit: I'm using XP. I've downloaded ImgBurn and can't make head or tail of it. Spuds: I want to copy the DVD not burn from file

Why do you need to copy from the dvd ie burn on the fly usually you need 2 drives normal practice is to create an Iso image of the dvd which is an exact copy then burn from that.

IMGBURN> Create Image file from disc > then Write image file to disc obviously choosing the Iso you just created chose the number of copies from the drop down box .Ha! now you have to feed the beast fopr each copy about 15min at a safe low speed a disc

Thanks Eedcam. Now I understand ImgBurn & am creating the DVDs OK. It's easy when you know how but very difficult when you don't! It's a pity that most modern software is the same.

Glad you are sorted Johnincrete.Yes it is easy when you know how you can also use Imgburn for duplicating cd's slightly different process but no problem

Advantage is that hidden files and boot information (if needed) is always copied.

Effectively, you are cloning the disc to .iso, then back to optical disc.

Plenty of other apps can do this of course, but Imgburn is the one for me too.
