Duplicate a home DVD



Hey guys, i have a homemade DVD disc that I would like to make a copy of. Im using a B&W G3 running 9.2.2. I created a disc image of the DVD using Toast 5.0. When I mount the image and try to burn using my internal LaCie DVD burner, Toast gives me error and doesn't proceed to burn. Im intalling Mac OS X 10.2 onto that machine today. Could it be that i need to decoded the DVD, then re-encode it and burn it? Im a newbie at this so any help would be appreciated. Lates.

in toast, all you need to do is choose copy. no need to make a disk image and mount it. this will slow your machine down a lot since it will copy your disk into a RAM disk, unless you have 2 drives. theres other ways, but this is the easiest
