Windows DVD maker

I bought a new laptop about 6 month’s ago which uses windows vista. The laptop has windows dvd maker which i think is rubish. To record a dvd takes about 6 hours and if its in avi it wont record at all. Are there any free programs i can download which will copy all my dvd’s no matter what format. Even if i have to pay for a good one which is the best.

Since when have DVDs anything to do with avi??

Try ImgBurn, it’s free and does a great job burning DVDs:
www.imgburn,com

if you are trying to back up dvd’s which you own then dvdfab platinum is the way to go.

if you are trying to burn dvd’s of dvd quality avi (non-copyrighted) video then try convertxtodvd.
