Some DVDs (especially ones purchased commercially) may have blocked content that prevents you from creating a copy. Be aware of and follow copyright requirements. However, if you have a DVD that doesn't prevent it and you hold all necessary rights and permissions, it's fairly easy to make a copy:

  1. Locate a computer with a DVD RW drive. There are several in the Tech Quad on the first floor of Irwin Library.
  2. Insert the disc with that you wish to make a copy of. Go into your computer's menu, select the Disc, and copy the files onto your computer. 
  3. Remove the original disc and now insert a blank DVD. Open the blank DVD folder within your computer's menu. Drag and drop the files you wish to burn into the blank DVD folder and select Burn Files to Disc.
