DVD Copy

Posted:
in macOS edited January 2014
I need to COPY a DVD that was made in iDVD and contains three quicktimes. It is all material that we own, no pirating.



Is there a way to copy the disc exactly using disk utility or something?



I don't have any third party DVD burning software.

    You can using disk utility since there is no encryption on it and it's not dual layer. Make a disc image from it and then just burn that image.

    I tried that and it created a .cdr file. Is that correct?

    It should probably be a .dmg or something, but .cdr might work. I've done it before, just check the format of the disc image, it would be UDF or something like that.

    create new image from device, CD/DVD Master, and you should end up with a *.cdr.dmg file.

    You get the instructions from Apple here.



    Probably when you made a copy of the disk you missed the step about telling Disk Utility that this is a DVD master.



    We just did this the other day making about 10 copies of a project with no problems.
