    Downloading home made DVD to copy again


    Hello!

    i have been trying, unsuccessfully to download our home videos that are on DVD's. They appear to go into a folder I've made for them, but when I try to copy onto another DVD, when I play it, the first part is missing and I get a message that a file is corrupt. I didn't think this would be so difficult, but I'm lost now as to how to do this. I'm trying to copy them for my daughters birthday. I am using DVD-R disk. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also using Windows 10.

    Thanks!!

    If the source DVD is corrupt/scratched, then the data from the source DVD will also be corrupt.

    Try either of these two tools, they do a better job in grabbing DVDs.

    Thank you! I did look at the DVD and there are no scratches. The original plays just fine. The copies seem to cut off the first part of the recordings. Are those downloads through the windows store? I've googled and YouTube everything and keep coming up short.

    Those programs are unnecessary for a home made DVD and may be illegal. @ F8watcher. Can you play the DVD on your computer?

    You may have to do more than just copy the folders off the original DVD. Use any burning software you want, but us the option to copy the DVD. Since it isn't a store-bought movie with copy protection, you can easily make copies of the disc. If you only have one optical drive, the DVD will be copied to your hard drive as an image, and then you'll be prompted to put in the blank DVD.

    If copying in File Explorer doesn't work you could try DVD Shrink. DVD Shrink 3.2 - Download

    No need for any of those apps, like DVDfab or DVD Shrink. There's no protection that needs to be broken.

    Copying the directories to the hard drive doesn't give you a working DVD, unless you've specially configured your burning software for a DVD movie. The easiest way is to use whatever burning program he already has and chose to make a disc copy.

    Why on the earth some freeware will be illegal.

    I was wondering the same. Using a free tool to get my own self made home video material from my self made and burnt DVD to another DVD possibly illegal?

    Makes me wonder if my lack of education makes me too stupid to understand it.
