Its a DVD we own I promise. I have been here a while, you can trust me.

Its a YESVIDEO DVD from Kodak and it wont copy. I have tried and tried. It goes through the process on DVD shrink and NERO and when its done NOTHING is on the disk and the disk is ruined. I have went through 10 or 11 dvds and its starting to add up at 40 cents a dvd.

No more.....

I need help.

Its a YESDVD....

The way I understand it and I could be wrong, is that you can edit, make a slide show or whatever, but you cannot outright copy the DVD. The process is copyrighted. They want you to order another one instead
It was also suggested the the EasyDVD might be protected with CSS:

I don't know Maybe someone else will

Apparently they do not encrypt or have any sort of 'encoding'. And according to the YesDVD website they do not support assisting making copies. The following quote was taken from: http://www.yesvideo.com/faq.aspx

Can I make copies of the YesDVD from my own computer?

While we prefer that you order extra YesDVD copies and enjoy the titled DVD label and DVD case with pictures, you are free to make copies of your DVD using your computer.

Your computer must be able to make DVDs and you must have DVD writing software. Because there are so many computer models and DVD writing software packages, we are unable to provide support regarding this matter.


The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)

If you can't get in through the front door, try the window.

Insert the dvd into your drive.
If it opens, close it.

Click on My Computer from your desktop.
Then open the disk drive.
If you see the contents, first make a folder somewhere, then highlight everything.
On the left, under file and folder tasks, choose Copy this file.
Navigate to the folder you created, then COPY.

If it works to copy to the folder, you might be able to burn them to another disk.

(and you might have to move things in the folder to put them in the order you want)

How is this any different than using Nero or Dvd Shrink to copy the disk? It did work.

I have no clue why Nero and DVD Shrink wouldn't work. If my method worked, it is because computer files are being burned, not files on a disk.
I saw an opportunity to provide an alternative.

Sometimes going in the window works.

So I should be able to copy and paste to disk using windows built in burning software?

In theory that should work.
Since the files are on your computer now, you might be able to use Nero.
