I'm very new to trying to copy a DVD. My older computer gave me problems just trying to burn music CDs so I gave up on learning at that time. Recently bought a new Acer Laptop and its awesome. I'm trying to make a copy of a DVD I have to send a friend.
Here's the problem.
Before I got my computer, I had another friend take the original DVD to a friend of her's to make her a copy. She made a copy for her, a copy for me and I got the original back. I also supplied the blank DVDs. The copied DVD played fine in my home DVD player (older Toshiba...just not sure how old). So, I tried to make a copy of the same DVD using DVDFab Platinum.
The first problem I had was that after I inserted a blank DVD, it wasn't recognizing it. I tried (several times before I guess I got it right) to format the disk. FINALLY got a copy made and the stupid thing won't play in my home player. I'm using the same disks we used for the other copies we have.
Is it a problem with my DVD player or am I copying them wrong???
