Home made (non-copy protected) DVDs are easy...
just insert the DVD in your DVD drive...go to...Start /
Computer...right click the icon for the DVD Drive and
choose should see the directory of the DVD.

Now...copy/paste or drag/drop...the 'VIDEO_TS' folder
from the DVD to a new folder (renamed to the name of
the corresponding DVD) on your hard drive and that's it.

If you had VLC Media Player on your system (for example)
you could right click the VIDEO_TS folder and choose...
"Play With VLC Media Player" and the video will play.

These files can be several Gigabytes so copying can take
some time...have patience.
