    I asked a similar question before, but I wasn't clear enough, so I will clarify:

    What is the best/easiest/free way to clone a DVD onto a blank DVD disc?

    I would like to keep the same exact quality as it is on the original DVD when I clone it over to the blank DVD disc.

    I don't have a dual drive DVD machine/cloner so I need a way to do it on my single drive computer.

    Thanks in advance!

    AnyDVD & CloneDVD are probably the most accepted "best" cloning software available. I used to get whatever Netflix movies weren't available in their instant catalog and clone them before I sent them back. :p

    Now that I have a media center setup, though, I prefer ripping them to digital format as it takes up less space.

    I tried CloneDVD and could not figure out how to burn it to an actual DVD disc after I cloned it. How do I burn it to a physical DVD disc after running it through CloneDVD?

    You may find the following tutorial helpful in getting more acquainted with CloneDVD:

    Code:

    However, for short, you can select the "Write Existing Data" option and navigate to the files you created when you cloned the DVD. It should be pretty straight-forward. Your DVD should've already been split in the first step if it needed it, so you'll have a problem if your files are too large and you try to burn from this menu.

    Clone DVD has always been good to me.

    Using magiciso or similiar program can create and iso that you can then burn to a dvd using nero/windows/any burning program.

    MagicISO is good because it also allows you to convert the DVD/CD into a single .ISO file, which can then be used to burn DVD/CD's indefinately. It's best to have the media stored as an .iso on the hard drive, as the original disk can get on small scratch and be ruined.

    Also, an .ISO can be mounted into a Virtual Drive with a program like Daemon Tools.

    For straight copying & burning I use a cracked version of Nero 6.06 it's old and does the job.
