I am trying to copy a video DVD ...

 

A normal enough use of ImgBurn ...

Windows 7 is fine (ImgBurn works on all versions of Windows), and the fact that you have only one DVD drive is no problem at all - ImgBurn does not copy direct from one drive to another drive. The normal procedure is to use ImgBurn to make a copy of the DVD as "an image file" on your PC's hard drive, and then replace the original DVD by a blank writable DVD in the same drive, and use a second run of ImgBurn to copy the image file back onto the blank DVD.

 

You should refer to the relevant guide in the "Guides" section of the forum :

"How to copy a disc using ImgBurn"

 

Of course, this procedure won't work if your original video DVD is a copy-protected DVD (e.g. most commercially produced video DVDs), because ImgBurn does not contain the ability to break copy-protection schemes. If that's what you want to achieve, you'll have to look for a different program.
