    Good day,

    What is the easiest (free) way to copy a DVD containing a Wedding Anniversary to other dvd's?

    Thank you

    You want to use Disk Utility.

    Get back to us if you get stuck, there's a lot of steps.

    The basic idea: You use Disk Utility to rip a disk image copy to your Mac and then you use Disk Utility to burn that disk image to new DVDs.

    This is what I used :)
    It created a .cdr and then I tried to copy it but it burned it as a file on the DVD :(

    How did you burn it? You want to see the .cdr under all of your hard drives in Disk Utility. (If it's not there, get it in Finder and drag it from Finder to the Disk Utility window where it shows all the drives.)

    Then select it and click the 'Burn' button up top. Is that what you did?

    And before you ripped it did you change it from a CD to a DVD disk image? I don't recall where that setting is but I know it defaults to CDs.

    Master DVD/CD and no encryption
    I might simply buy the Toast software.
    Or I am doing it wrong :) I'm sure it's my fault somewhere

    I can't tell what you're doing wrong because it all sounds right. All I can tell you is that I do this all of the time without trouble here. I don't know if that DVD has any copy-protection, but I would have thought the rip would fail if that were the case. I don't know.
