I use MagicISO to make ISO images of my media.

(We cannot help you copy copyright video DVDs as that would likely violate the DMCA).

Sure, nothing illegal.  How does it take with MagicISO though?   Looks like paintfully slow...

I say it is all down to individual preferences.
I recommend imgburn.
http://www.imgburn.com/ 
if you are just burning data to dvd might as well use the windows drag and drop.

I don't make the images often (though I expect to when I have some free time), so I don't have a feel for how long it takes right now... historically, its been at least partly dependent on the Reader (not just the rated speed but the product overall).

Free studio manager is the best free package :  it includes all tools required, starting from video, audio conversion to dvd burning...

So there is no software like for simpe CD with the option Copy Disk.  It will copy to the memory, then insert the blank disk and burn.  Anything simple like that?

Either IMGBurn http://www.imgburn.com/ as recommended by Jhunjoe
or CDBurnerXP http://cdburnerxp.se/

Both are free and excellent.  Good tutorials can be found on both sites.

And will do simple copies as you require but copies go to disk rather than memory. because of the size of the files concerned.  Once to disk you can then write back to DVD or CD.

A DVD could consist of over 4 Gb of data and that will NOT fit into memory.  Similarly a CD could be over 600 Mb of data and although that will fit into memory it takes up memory that could be more valuable to an application.

Copy personal home video in the original quality. Make a quick 1:1 copy with only 2 button clicks. Easy as 1 2 3!  (I can't tell if you need 2 drives or if it will work with just 1)

That DVD cloner from http://www.burn4free.com/ is great.  I wish it was free though.   Thanks Coral.
