I have home made DVDs - not commercial, not CSS protected, etc - and I just want to copy them. There is a DVD drive in my laptop and I have an external DVD-R drive. Laptop is running XP Home. I just want to copy the DVD in the DVD drive to a DVD-R in the DVD-R drive. I don't need ripping software, shrinking software, etc. So I'm just looking for the easiest way to tell Windows to copy A to B (Or, rather D: to G:). I have both InterVideo WinDVD Creator and MuVee AutoProducer DVD Edition on the laptop - both they're both designed for importing video files and then converting them for DVD, and they don't seem to grok reading *from* a DVD as the source. So they're no help.
Now, I could play the DVDs in one player and re-record them on my TiVo/DVD-R deck, but that'd be silly - and have quality loss. :-)
So, a free solution would be nice, but I'm willing to pay a reasonable price for the functionality. Google hasn't been much help because any searches on DVD copying return a bazillion hits on ripping commercial DVDs.
