Hello, I am just a typical CPU user that would like to back up copies of my DVD movies. I have an E-machine PC, with 128MB, 1.8GHZ, and a 40gig HD. I have been reading a lot of threads on this forum and this seems like a very complicated endeavor. Can I buy a DVD burner, a DVD copy program like DVD Xcopy, and some good media, and expect to be able to accomplish this? Speed is not a factor, I just don’t want to waste a ton of money on DVD media. Any help would be appreciated.

pilce welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

Yes all you need is the DVD recorder, compatible DVD media, the corresponding software and patience ( :wink: ) to do what you mentioned.

I would advise you to invest on some more RAM for your computer also, as 128 aint that much for video editing, but you will get your job done as it is right now anyways.

Thanks a lot for your response. I will invest in some more RAM this month and hopefully I will be able to back up my movie collection.
