You want to make a copy of a DVD? You won't be able to do that to actual movie DVD's (that you bought at the store) because they got a bleep load of "copyright" protection burnt into the DVD so it wouldn't work.

However if you want to burn a copy of a DVD your burned it shouldn't be that hard. I've never really used Nero but try looking for DVD burn 'on the fly.'

But do you have 2 DVD drives? With one of them being a DVD-Burner? Also you'll need the same format disc I think. Like if the first one is a DVD+R you'll most likely need a DVD+R for the 2nd copy when you burn it.

Actually, you can do it. Use DVD decrypter first. You'll need a lot of hard drive space because by the time you've finished you'll have used about ten gigs.

It's pretty automatic. It might ask you to choose the area, but just choose the default. Then it will go through the disk and remove copy protection. BTW - DVD decrypter has been removed from the internet because the author was in Britain and their copyright laws are very strict.

Once it's finished, it will play a cute little Calypso tune and you can close it, noting the name of the saved file.

Then open DVD shrink and open the files you have on the hard drive.

You need to get the movie small enough to fit on a single DVD. I've had good success with burning at say, 56%. If it doesn't work, you may have to re-author. You can remove everything but the main movie or whatever parts you choose.

But before you do that, try removing all the foreign-language substreams.

If you want to get even more complicated, there is also Menu Shrink, which will change animated menus into stills so that they don't take up so much space, and there are also programs that will allow you to re-create menus to fit your re-modded disks.
