DVD to computer to blank DVD

Postby johnsykes » Fri Nov 04, 2011 12:50 pm

Here I go again.....I have a DVD, made from old 8mm film that I now want to put onto the computer to make copies for my family. What would the best program be to do such a thing? As always, your help is much appreciated.

It seems Costco, who did the job converting from film to DVD, is preventing the switch from DVD to computer to DVD.
I'll be on their tail come Monday morning. I've tried and tried to complete the job, but am told its not allowed.
Many thanks in the meantime
