If your computer has a DVD burner in it, then it probably comes with software that handles burning data to a DVD. The software probably won’t handle making backups of commercial DVDs, because most major manufacturers like Nero don’t want to be sued by movie producers over copy-protection laws. Commercial DVDs are encrypted and must be decrypted before they can be copied. That is to say, you will need third-party software for burning DVD.
Hardware needed: Windows OS computer, DVD drive, DVD burner
Software needed: CloneDVD
Medium: source DVD, blank DVD
As specialized DVD burning software, CloneDVD decrypts commercial DVD movie by removing all existing DVD protections automatically to copy it to a blank DVD.
Step 1. Free download the software for burning DVD, install and run it on Windows OS computer.
Step 2. Insert original DVD disc into your drive.
Step 3. Select the same drive as both source and target.
Step 4. Select DVD as output format, and specify target DVD disc size.
Step 5. Select desired copy mode.
Step 6. Click “Start” to begin to burn the DVD to temporary hard disk folder.
Step 7. Eject the original DVD disc and insert a blank DVD disc, then cancel autoplay and press “OK”, CloneDVD will begin to burn to the blank DVD disc.
If you have both DVD-ROM and DVD±RW coexisting, you can insert the source DVD and target DVD at the same time. The DVD burning software will directly burn the source contents onto the blank disc.
