How To Copy a DVD to Another DVD For Free

I have huge collection of DVDs at my house and began wondering this morning how I could copy my DVDs so that I would not lose them.  After all, when you consider that I have about 400 DVDs, the price for these DVDs adds up quickly.  I am well over $1,000 for my DVD collection.  It’s probably more closer to $10,000.

So, I find an article called how to copy a DVD which pointed me exactly where I wanted to be because this article explains how to copy a DVD for free, which is what I am after.  I mean…I have spent enough on the DVDs…I don’t want to spend more money to buy programs just to copy my DVDs.

And, it turns out that there are many applications that will do it for free and, in the end, it turns out that Copying DVDs to Your Computer is not the great challenge that I thought it would be.

You need 3 things:  A program that will decrypt the DVD if necessary.  (2) A program that will copy the DVD to your computer and (3) a program that will then burn the DVD.

There are applications that perform these functions and they are all free and easy to use.  In order, they are DVD43, DVD Shrink, and Image Burner.

Find these applications and you are good to go!

Also, I discovered that you can also copy DVD to hard drive and have a copy of the DVD with you on the go whenever you want.  To do this, you need the program called Handbrake, which is also not that difficult to use.

Now, what I need is time 🙂  because copying DVDs takes about 1 hour each!
