    How make copy of DVD. Read plenty of info this forum, very confusing.


    How make copy of DVD. Read plenty of info on this forum, but, very, very, confusing.
    Some caveats:
    Firstly, I know W10 can't do this, and that it requires additional software.
    Secondly, I have read at least 4 forum topics on this, and remain confused.
    Thirdly, yes, the copyright thing--I'll take my chances.
    Some history:
    Today, I stepped on and broke a DVD of King Lear, with Ian McKellen.
    I have no idea how it got onto the floor--dogs, kids, gremlins, who knows.
    The least expensive replacement is ebay, pre-owned, $49.95 plus $3.75 shipping--ouch.
    What I want to do:
    I want to take my expensive DVDs, and stick them in my laptop's hard-drive, and make a copy of these DVDs,
    so that I don't have to buy them again when they get stepped on.
    Requests for help:
    1. Can anyone recommend a freeware that will allow me to
    take my expensive DVDs, and stick them in my laptop's hard-drive, and make a copy of these DVDs?
    2. Can anyone recommend a modestly priced program I can buy that will allow me to
    take my expensive DVDs, and stick them in my laptop's hard-drive, and make a copy of these DVDs?
    Apologizing in advance:
    I realize that these may seem live a simpleton's requests for help,
    and I apologize for wasting anyone's time,
    but, I need your help.

    Thanks.

    PS. System is Lenovo Ideapad running W10 Home,
    Processor: intel Core i3-6100U @ 2.30 Ghz ACPI x64-based PC
    Display Adapter: Intel HD Graphics 520

    AFAIK Ripping a DVD to make your own copy is still illegal in The USA and not allowed to be discussed on this forum. In some places doing it is considered legal IF you don't have to circumvent Copyright Protection which pretty much makes doing it illegal.

    You can simple make a folder for each DVD then simple copy all the files/folders to the folder. You can use winrar to compress the files to save space then write to dvd when required full instructions How to Make an ISO With WinRAR | Techwalla.com

    Questions:
    1. Will that create a DVD that will play in a DVD player ?
    2. Will it create a DVD with the same menus, etc, as has the original DVD ?

    "1. Will that create a DVD that will play in a DVD player ?

    "

    No and No ! The suggested method is for software DVD's, like an Office install disc. You need specialized writing software to decrypt and copy commercial video DVDs, preserve the menus (more complicated) and make playable on your TV.
