Hi. I desperately need some help from all of you experts:-).

I'm trying to make a backup copy of a child's dvd. We just want to be able to keep a copy in the car.

I have successfully encoded the dvd using handbrake. The kids are able to watch the movie on their ipods with no problem.

I'm now trying to take it a step further to burn a dvd. I've now tried 3 different copy softwares (burn, dvd copy, and dvd2onex2). The problem is that I cannot seem to select the movie source when it lets me browse through my computer. When I browse, it shows all of the files, but very few items are actually "highlighted" to allow for selection (none of them being movies). This happens on all of the copy softwares I have tried. I am very glad these came with free trials, since I certainly don't want to pay if I can't get them to work.

What am I doing wrong? Do I need to do something to my movies before trying to use one of the copy softwares?

Oh, I've got the basic Macbook, '08.

Thanks so much!

Karen

technically, what you're trying to do is illegal (at least in the US which is the law this board attempts to adhere to). and while i have two young boys myself and can empathize with your desire to save a few bucks in the face of a dvd's likely destruction, duplicating copywritten material such as this can't be discussed here.

Eric is right, unfortunately we don't allow discussion on how to duplicate copyrighted material here.

I'm in your forums, writing sentences in a grammatically acceptable manner.
