Burning a DVD

I have burned many CD's. However, today I tried to Burn my first copy of a DVD.
It's not Copy Protected. It was given to me to make a copy of it for myself.
I've tried a bunch of DVD Burner sites, and I either get, "Insert Disc", which I did or if I try to click the Burn Button, nothing happens. There is talk on some of the Burner sites about "on the fly". I only have one Burning Tray so I would presume I would burn it to my hard drive first. Any help would be suggested.
The DVD I'm trying to copy is a "DVD-R".
Any help would be appreciated.

Note that not being copy protected is not the same thing as not being copyrighted.

maybe it is home made porn and not like a 2nd gen dupe of the Lion King?

unless the homemade pron actors copyrighted it. in which case burn him at the stake.

Re: Burning a DVD

I think I would be safe in mentioning the free Burning program IMGBurn, it works very well and is easy to use.

Re: Burning a DVD

It would help if we had a shred of useful information, like what operating system is being used, and what software he's been trying. Brand of media would help, too.
