I cannot find a way to copy a dvd with 200 photos onto a blank dvd.
On my old pc I had a program called Sonic which did this in 2 steps.
Any help would be appreciated. Slowly getting used to iMac.

do you have access to the old computer with Sonic? It sounds like the DVD is not finalized.

Old pc is gone.
I cannot find the program or application on the iMac to perform this task.
I finalize dvds on my Sony recorder all the time, but have never done it on a computer dvd.
I have iDVD and dvd player on my iMac, but don't know what to do to make a copy.

Oh, this should be easy.

So what you want to do is COPY an existing DVD you have, right?

You don't use iDVD, you use Disk Utility which is in the Utilities folder.

Open the program, insert your original DVD, it will appear in the left-hand column in Disk Utility. Select it and choose "New disc image" from the menu. That will create a DMG file.

Once that's done, eject the original DVD, insert a blank DVD and (still in Disk Utility) select it and choose "burn file from image" (or whatever the exact wording is). That's it!

Thanks for the info. I was able to copy a dvd with 100+ photos but had no luck with a video on a dvd. The video was fed from a camcorder into a Sony recorder and burned onto a dvd in the Sony. It said it was copying and created a dmg file and spent 20 minutes burning it and then said "Unable to create "Topsail".dmg (Input/output error).
I will check to make sure I finalized the original dvd and try again.
Thanks again!
