Please can someone simply talk me th0ugh how to copy a DVD onto my Computer and then burn it onto a blank disc?

I have tried Imageburn and got no where after hours.

I thought maybe theres an easier way to copy a Audio DVD once I insert it into my Desktop, so I found the folder and clicked copy and saved it into a location on my computer. And when I click on it, it plays and opens on Windows Media Player, but when I remove the disk from the computer and I open the saved file on my computer it no longer plays, it only plays when I have the disc inserted into the computer.

 

Ive managed to get a WAV File (.wav) copy of it onto my computer and saved but how do I now burn it? The comptuer is not reconsing my bank disk?

that means it is not saving it to your computers hard drive, windows media player is playing it from the CD

Thanks, Ive managed to get a WAV File (.wav) copy of it onto my computer and saved but how do I now burn it? The comptuer is not reconsing my bank disk?

When I click on the WAV File (.wav) copy it plays fine in windows media player. 

 

Ive added it to the burn list on windows media player and it says !"connect a burner and restart the player"

 

What do I do now to burn it to a blank disk?

I also have a Acer TravelMate B113 Black - Core i3-3227U but havent tried using that to burn it.

Ive put in the blank disk and Windows Media PLayer should reconise it but it isnt???

Can both these computers burn a disk?
 
So even if I convert it to a ISO it still will not burn onto a DVD?
 
All I want to do is SAVE a dvd onto my computer and then burn it on to a dvd blank disc.
 
Ive saved the dvd on my computer but its saved as a WAV File (.wav), shall I convert it to another format so it will burn easy? if so, what format?

what burning software are you using?

 

can i ask why you want this burnt to a cd?

 

can you not just use a usb stick?

 

what is the purpose for the cd?

I managed to burn it onto a disk but its in  WAV File (.wav) on the DVD. It plays on my computer but not on many other things

 

What format would be the best format to have it in so it plays on most devices? And then how can I convert a  WAV File (.wav) to the file others will mention? ie links to a programe?

Basically I just want to make a copy of the orginal Audio, the orginal Audio is in the CD Audio Track (.cda) which plays on everything I have tried ie DVD player, etc...I just want to ensure the copy I make is also in the same format as the orginal which is in CD Audio Track (.cda) format. 
 
I did make a copy but it ended up in a WAV format and doesnt play on anything except my own computer with certain programs.

Anyone any idea how I can make a copy of the orginal Audio CD onto another blank Audio CD and keep it in the same format as the orginal CD which is  in CD Audio Track (.cda) format which will also play on my DVD player as the orginal plays on my DVD player.
