    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.

    I think you hit the nail on the head!! I'm guessing I didn't having the proper software.......I just assumed you could pop in a DVD, copy it to your hard drive and then copy it to another DVD. As I said......not a tech savvy person, but your suggestions have all been very helpful......thank you! I've burned a view disks, so I'm going to try them on our player and see what happened. 3 down.......27 more to go!!

    ImgBurn is a great free burning program. I use it every time I need to burn something to a DVD.

    F8watcher,

    Have you considered converting the DVDs to AVI or MPG movie files and saving them all on one USB hard drive with a backup? I've seen a lot more DVDs go bad than hard drives with backups. Heck, you could probably even fit all 30 DVDs on one 128GB USB memory stick.

    MagicDVD is a great program for converting DVD to AVI, MPG and just about any other video file format, but it will only do 5 for free:
    Magic DVD Ripper - rip DVD to hard drive or blank DVD

    There are plenty of other free programs you could use as well.

    Yeah, The newest version includes bundleware. It's much safer to use the older version than the newer version.

    It is darn near impossible to find quality media anymore. Most of the media you find in the stores are cheap grade media. I second the suggestion to save them on a USB HDD.

    Once again I remind you guys about PowerShell OneGet, a built-in tool in Windows 10. Using OneGet you can install all your software with one command, totally automatically and silently in the background, without any PUPs, without any "Click Next, Click Install", without any "Would you also like to install this and that software". By default the latest version of all applications, but if an older version is needed you can select from all available versions.

    I just installed ImgBurn with OneGet in 10 seconds with this simple command:

    Click image for larger version.
