Best way to duplicate DVD of home movies


Recommended Posts

I have some home movies on VHS that I have recently copied to DVD with a VCR/DVD Recorder combo. I would like to make copies of these DVDs for other family members but the tapes are old and fragile so I don't want to keep using the VCR to make more DVDs. I was told that if I brought the DVD vob files into Adobe Premier Elements, the copied DVD would lose quality due to being compressed to MPEG2 twice.

Which CDBurnerXP option would just copy the data from the DVD either to the hard drive or directly to a new burned DVD without encoding/decoding or otherwise messing with the quality? I was not sure whether to use the Data disc, Video DVD or Copy or grab disc option. My PC has 2 optical drives so a direct copy would be easiest.
