  1. Belated thanks for the instructions. I finally worked up enough nerve to give it a shot, and I just finished the process successfully. Thanks again, I really appreciate your help.
  2. I need to make copies of CDs that contain my medical records (radiology images). The CDs were apparently created with Altamont Software, which I assume is some sort of special medical record program. My health care lab refused to give me more than one set of CDs. I anticipate needing to send copies of the CDs to more than one medical facility. I have cognitive problems, so I haven't been able to to figure it out by following the standard instructions. My first question: Can I copy the contents of a CD onto a DVD? Or do I need to get some blank CDs? I'm guessing I need CDs, which I should be able to easily get. I was trying to copy the contents of the original CDs to my computer hard drive, and then burn a new disk from the hard drive onto the computer's built-in burner. Would it be easier to try to copy from one CD/DVD drive to another? I do have a portable external CD/DVD drive that I could hook up to my computer, if that would be simpler. Not sure what else is relevant. I'm using Windows 10 on a desktop computer. Lots of space on the hard drive. I would be very grateful if someone could give me very explicit directions. This stuff is very difficult for me. If you need more info from me, I can probably supply it. Thanks in advance.
  3. LOL! I'm dumber than I thought. The DVD didn't play on my computer, so I assumed it was no good. But it plays fine on the unit that's hooked up to my TV. Apparently I don't have the right kind of DVD-playing software on my computer. I assumed I had some sort of default program (this is a relatively new computer) for playing DVDs, but maybe I don't. Anyway, the hubster and I had a good laugh at my expense. Thanks for your help and your patience.
  4. Thanks for the detailed instructions, but I screwed it up again. I ended up with a DVD with two folders: AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS. I'm afraid my ancient brain isn't capable of learning new complicated tricks. I guess I need to try to find a program that's simpler. It's a bitch gettin' old. Mama never said there'd be days like this.
  5. When I try this (using read mode), I get the message shown below. I'm trying to copy a DVD that has 2 videos on it, so read mode does not work. When I try using Build mode, I don't have enough information -- I don't know how to use Build mode to create an iso. I've tried to figure it out, but I'm not smart enough. All I get is a bunch of files, not an iso file. I need to know how to create the iso file in Build mode. (I think.)
  6. I want to copy some DVDs (not commercial ones -- ones that I created myself) and I can't make it work. They have more than one video on them -- I read the guides and used the Build option to get a bunch of BUP, IFO, and VOB files from the source DVD to my computer, but I couldn't figure out how to generate a functional copy. I keep ending up with new disks with those BUP, IFO, and VOB files. Before I ruin more new DVDs, can someone please point me in the direction of specific instructions for copying a DVD that has more than one file on it? I'm old, and not as good at figuring stuff out as I used to be. But I did try. TIA.
