Why Can’t I Copy File from DVD to Computer?

Generally, there are two causes of “cannot copy file from DVD to computer.” One, the DVD is damaged, and two, the DVD is copy-protected.

As for the first cause, if your DVD is self-made, you are supposed to transfer files from DVD to PC directly. Otherwise, your DVD may be damaged. Check whether there are some scratches on your disc and clean the DVD and the DVD drive, then see if the DVD is readable again.

However, if your DVD is bought from a store, it is most likely to be copy-protected, and you cannot copy the DVD file to computer with the simple “Copy and Paste”. You see, a commercial DVD is produced as a read-only medium protected by copy protection, and your computer is authorized to read only, not copy. You will need a professional DVD copier to circumvent the protection and copy such protected DVDs. Don't worry. In the next part, we will show you how to copy a movie from a protected DVD to a computer with a dedicated DVD ripper. Read on!
