    I tried the other suggestions......when I put the DVD in my laptop, I also created a folder and saved the DVD contents to that folder. When burning it to a new dvd, it was cutting off the first part of our home video. I've successfully.....so far.....appear to have completed 1 disk. Now working on the next one. I'm not a tech savvy person, but can usually figure things out by using google or YouTube......just wasn't happening this time. I'll keep you posted if the 2nd dvd works out. Thanks for all of your help. I really want to be able to give these to our daughter for her 25th birthday........she keeps mentioning that she'd like them.

    Programs like DVD HD Decrypter and DVD Decrypter were made to bypass the encryption on commercial DVD's. In some countries this is illegal. this is why in the US they have the FBI warning in commercial DVD,s and CD's. @ Keri, You won't get a argument out of me.

    I am aware of the possible IRP violation that a DVD decryptor tool may cause. I suggested those only because those are his self made disks, so nobody will arrest him for violating IRP; and those tools makes a better copy from a corrupt source.

    You skipped my suggestion. You only need to tell your burning software to make a copy of the DVD. You don't need (and shouldn't) copy the contents of the DVD to your hard drive. My wife makes photo DVDs and home movies for all our family events, and we burn copies to give everyone. It's a very simple step and copies the entire disc, including the index, formatting, etc.

    I just wanted to warn them that those programs may be illegal to download. Another good program to try and recover a damaged disk is ISOBuster. I'm not sure what the limitations are for the free download version. I have the paid version and it helped me save a few of my home videos that were on cheap media.

    It wasn't working?? When I put the DVD into my laptop, I got no option to copy, download, etc......just watch on the Toshiba video viewer.

    That would have been a very stupid warning. There is nothing illegal, and if it is illegal, there are admins and mods to deal with those.

    There is no need to slap down another one's post to justify yours; especially claiming it contains illegal material. Its abusive.

    I do apologies. I never intended for my post to be abusive.

    What software are you using to burn the DVDs? Windows itself won't do this, as far as I know.

    Maybe the problem is you don't have any burning software installed. If that's the case, get BurnAware, ImgBurn, CDBurnXP, Ashampoo Burning Studio....all are free so any one of them would work very well and give you the copy option.

    I think that's going to resolve your issue.
