i7 4790k

MSI GTX 970 gpu

Crucial 16gb DDR3 RAM

PNY 120gb SSG

Gigabyte gaming 3 MOBO

Noctua NH-d14 heat sink

LG Black 16X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA Blu-ray Burner WH16NS40

computer 1 and 2 Win 7 64 bit ( laptops - Toshiba AMD processors maybe 3-6 years old / Best Buy $300 or less )

Computer 3: Win. 10 64bit SSD # 1

                     Linux Mint 18.3  SSD #2

 

 

-------------------------------------------------------

 

The only times I use my optical drive is for installing software.

 

1)  How can I go about watching / burning DVD movies?

2)  How do I go about watching / burning Blu-ray DVD?

3)  Is there special software I need in order to do this?  

***  3a) I do have VLC installed in all computers.

**** 3b)  I also have Wondershare ultimate video convertor.  ( except on Linux Mint )

 

3) Will quality be lost by burning?  ie: resolution of the DVD / Blu -ray be worse if burned?

4)  Exactly what types of discs will I need?

5)  If software is needed:  What is the easiest / most basic to use to achieve this?

 

 

 

 

Thanks everyone.

I use Cyberlink products for some things that you are asking about. There are of course legal restrictions in the Americas and Europe and Asia that restrict what you can rip, burn and watch, but if you are not trying to rip and burn copy protected material then there should be no problem.

if your looking to backup your personally owned original disc's then here is what you need it's a combination of 2 programs:

anydvd and

cloneBD / DVD

 

and your set..  you have to have the anydvd to help with the disc encryption.

...and the OP will need a Blu-Ray player & burner device, correct?  Most desktops and laptops do not come with burners, only players -- or am I mistaken?

The specs that he posted show that he has an LG BD-RE, which I assume is a Blu Ray burner.
