Intro to DVD Backup

I’m using a Panasonic/Matsushita LF-D311SC DVD-R/RAM drive. Dual PIII 1.26 GHz, 1.0 GB PC133 RAM, 16/60/75/120 GB HDDs, etc. You get the idea.

So basically my question is this:

What is the easiest process for backing up my DVD movies to DVD-R? What’s a good app to use? Procedure? I have stacks of blank media, here, -R type…

Suggestions, guides, assistance would be much appreciated!

Also- I’m a CSCI major with a few years of IT experience, just looking for direct education to hone this skill, so you don’t have to babytalk your post replies, too much, no worries! Thanks again!
