    Do I need to copy desktop.ini when copy dvd?


    I am making backup of my software installation dvd by selecting all files in the dvd and copy and paste into my computer hard disk. Doing this so that I will have the software even if the dvd corrupt or I lose the dvd in future.

    When I open the dvd, there are software files and a file called desktop.ini (screenshot https://i.imgur.com/4N5rKNX.png ), do I need to copy desktop.ini to work correctly? (I mean if in future I want to install the software by using the files I copied into my pc it will work correctly)

    Thanks

    :)

    Need to encrypt the DVDS for copying!!

    Hello everybody, I have a collection of DVDS and would like to continue with that. I sometimes do make copies of the original ones if I am not able to get them but the problem is that some are encrypted and couldn’t be copied. I am looking for a tool that can copy the encrypted ones and be efficient in speed and quality too.


    Hope to get your suggestions!!!!

    DVD copy

    Hello,

    Thank you for replying back with the status of this issue.

    I would suggest you to copy the movie files from your DVD on your computer hard disk by opening the drive in the computer. You may follow the steps below -

    • Insert the DVD in the CD\DVD drive.
    • Open computer, click on DVD drive, and Select the files you want to copy. To select all files, press Ctrl and A keys together, to select files randomly press Ctrl and left mouse click on the file.
    • Right click on the selected files, click on copy.
    • Select the location where you want to save those files, right click and paste it.
    Then you may insert the blank DVD and burn the disk using the Windows DVD Maker. You may refer to the below link for assistance in burning the DVD and other details -

    Burn a CD or DVD in Windows DVD Maker -
