    so I just got a brand new computer with a dvd burner. I was all excited about making copies of all my favs, especially my pixar collection, but now that I have nero, I have no idea what to do with it. I assumed I would be able to save the dvd to my harddrive, and then burn it to a disc, but can't figure it out. it's also hard to find info out there because of all of the sketchy bootleg sites. any help?

    1. You'll only be able to make a working copy through Nero if the original is not encrypted and is not larger than the target medium you want to copy it to.

    2. Nero has a "DVD Copy" option in the project wizard that opens when you start the program. If the DVD you want to copy fits the above criteria, you should be able to copy it perfectly that way, even with only one DVD drive.

    3. If the DVD you want to copy is encrypted, Macrovision protected, or larger than the target disc, you'll have to use some tools that are less than legal in a few countries, including the United States. Stupid DMCA.

    you should invest in a huge external and just copy everything into there.

    Yes, it is. And the DMCA is not. :(

    before i posted this, I knew how to rip them to my harddrive. the problem is I have no idea what to do with all of that .iso blah blah blah stuff once it's on my computer. so what I just want to do is burn the dvd to another, and get it off my harddrive. which, I think I may be on the road to doing...
