Am using Vista on a new laptop.  Borrowed some DVD's from a friend, ones they'd downloaded so on a DVD-R.  tried copying them.  nothing seems to work.  can copy CD's using NTI CD and DVD maker (came with computer), but not DVD's.  Tried downloading free trial versions of Nero, Easy DVD Clone and Clone DVD but still cant get these copyed movies onto another disk so we can keep our own copy.  Am getting very very frustrated and pissed off.  what is going on?  Is it the CD/DVD writer?  Will it write CD's but no DVD's?  Or am I still using the wrong software?  I dont want to buy something only for it not to work.  As i said, I am using Vista.  Is it the Vista?  Or me?  Or what the @#$% is going on?  Sorry for any offence caused by my frustrated language, but I have wasted two nights messing around trying to copy these disks.  I cant even get them onto my hard drive so I can watch them later.

Please, all help, suggestions, hints, tips or anything, is very much appreciated (and wanted!)  This is driving me insane.  Do I have to find the receipt and take the computer back?  How can I get my own copy of these movies???

Thanks, K

I suggest that you go and buy the movies, that way you will be able to enjoy the movies without any hassle.

And discussion on how to copy DVD's, unless you have the authority of the studio's, is not recommended.

Its better to *buy* movies than copying and dont put the blame on Vista for that Tongue out, but, remember that when you say you are trying to copy Movie DVD to hard drive or to another DVD, it is ILLEGAL and we wont entertain discussing about it here. Sorry.

Agree with chakkaradeep, this is not the appropriate place to discuss. If the movie is that good, go buy it and enjoy.
If you want something for nothing, you'll get what you paid for...
