My cousin made a video memorial of his mother after her death. He sent a copy to me for my mom. She would like to send a copy to her sister in vermont.

How can I duplicate this non-copywrited dvd for my mom?

Macbook pro, snow leopard bought new 7 months ago.

Thanks in advance for any help.

1. Insert the disc. If DVD player starts up, just quit it.

2. Open Disc Utility in your Utilities folder.

3. (read the help file if you need a more lengthy explanation, but) Make a disk image of the DVD. Be sure to select CD/DVD master as the option.

4. Once that is done, eject the original DVD.

5. Insert a blank DVD.

6. Select the disk image you just made (which should now be visible in the left-hand menu of Disc Utility) and press the burn button up tom.

Repeat steps five and six to make more copies.

Thanks for the info. Worked like a charm.

I admit the change from PC's to Macs is a bit harder than I thought it would be, mostly because it seems like apple makes it difficult to accomplish any task that I could do in a few minutes on a pc. That is just because I've used a pc for so long.
I know in a little while the MAC will seem just as easy for me to use as my no longer used PC.

The people on this forum and their willingness to help us new users is a great thing. Thanks again for all your help!
