Using freemake video convertor to copy a DVD

  laptopdunce 02:18 25 May 2015

I am trying to use freemake video convertor programme to make a copy of a copy DVD that I have, when i open the DVD box at the top and it shows my DVD as having 14 chapters, i tick them all in the box and have already ticked "join" at the top of freemake Video convertor page, then when I click on "start" it simply closeds the freemake video convertor page and I cant find it anywhere, i.e. it isnt downsized into the task bar, am I usig it correctly? I did open up the cyberlink DVD producer that is preloaded on my laptop but that thing is a bloody menace!! it wont shut down once opened, I am thinking of deleting that programme completely from the laptop, what should I do? or is there a different (free) DVD copying programme I can use? thanks Laptopdunce

Try the popular IMGBURN

Thanks I have installed that IMG burn programme BUT there came with it a thing called PC mechanic which brings up a window that is IMPOSSIBLE to close, so I have uninstalled this PC mechanic totally from the programs list in control panel, the IMGburn programme has just made a great copy of my DVD!! thanks LAPTOPDUNCE

Thanks for the feedback. For future reference, when installing programs, do a custom install. That way you don't get things on your PC that you don't want

Yes,Northumbris61, I have just added Freemake vid. Convertor to my reinstalled 8.1 windows laptop, and used the custom install as advised from one of my posts ages ago, and stopped the installation of all these crap programmes. Incidentally a friend of mine in Holland uses Linux OS and says there are no viruses, no b**lsh8t like with windows. Laptopdunce

Forgot to say, from my link you need to scroll down about a page to the link to from where it can be down loaded. This is computers, nothing is ever easy:-)

yes it sure is!! especially after my having to ditch windows 10 (which DID work!!!) but really f**ked my laptop up and seems to be a utterly INSOLUBLE problem!!!) so have gone back to windows 8.1 and I will NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER have a windows computer again, next time it is a Mac or a Linux OS for me!!! I just KNEW it would a pain in the a88e this whole so called "upgrade" - its been a "Downgrade" to less than nothing!!! the worst is, NO-ONE knows why this happens!! It is affecting lots of people I see on these forums. Its UTTERLY IMPOSSIBLE if you are a dimwit novice with computers, like me!! Laptopdunce

Hardly my fault if Win10 does not work on your laptop. I just gave gave you a link to something that should prevent you from downloading unwanted crap.

Yes, of course! I didnt mean it that it was YOUR fault I am simply stating that I agreed with your last comment where you write "this is computers, nothing is ever easy....." if you took the time to read my reply PROPERLY!!! you would see that I say......"yes, it sure is...(meaning a reply to your comment re: computers never easy..... THEN I go on to say about my current problem with W10!! and go further to state that it seems to be an insoluble problem that NO-ONE has an answer to, given that there are LOADS of people with this VERY problem....., however you OBVIOUSLY have taken offence when none was PLAINLY and QUITE OBVIOUSLY intended, Laptopdunce
