Specs: Windows 8.0
I had some old family photos and burned a DVD. I lost the files and now would like to extract them from the DVD to burn another copy. Can this be done?

✔ Best Answer
Did you simply burn the picture files to the DVD? If so it's easy, you can just browse the DVD as a drive and copy/paste them onto the hard drive or flash drive(s). They can then be burnt to DVD again to make a copy if you wish.

Alternatively there are programs that can copy DVD's. This freebie should do it (despite its name):

If you already have burning software on-board it might have a copy disk feature.

Here's some additional links to DVD copying/ripping software:

but yeah, it sounds like you just need to do a regular copy procedure as you would to move any files from drive to drive.

When I click "open" on the E drive, I cannot use any of the options for opening, such as Photo Gallery, Windows Media Player, etc. I have yet to view any of the photos on the DVD in E drive.

OK, it's probably due to the way you burnt the DVD - nothing necessarily wrong.

Copy the disk instead using the little free program suggested in #1 which should do the trick, or one of the others given in the link at #2.

If you should happen to want to put the files on the HD or a flash drive as well, then we would need to know more about what you see on the disk. A screen shot would be ideal, uploaded here (no account necessary):

When I installed CDBurnerXP the desktop icon opened with a foreign language. I uninstalled it, reinstalled it, and the same thing happened.

The pictures may be in folders. In that case click on the folder to open it. If you burned the disk correctly they must be there somewhere but we have no way of knowing how you organized the disk. If you find a picture file just click on it to open it.

"desktop icon opened with a foreign language"

Very strange, my CDBurnerXP is in English and that looks like the official source. Maybe you have to select language during install but mostly programs default to your local language.

Try one of the other programs suggested in #2.

Perhaps I did not describe my problem as well as I should have, but none of the answers worked for me. I could never open or explore the DVD, which was burned in 2006 using Sonic. I will take it somewhere and have it professionally burned. Thanks to everyone for their answers.

"I could never open or explore the DVD"
That's an important piece of information that nobody would have guessed, so that's why the answers were of no help.

Try the DVD on another computer. If it doesn't run then it is corrupted in some way and maybe professional attention will help you. Copying it will just copy the problem onto the new disk.

After you burned the DVD did you ever try it out or did you just set it aside? Maybe it was a bad burn and was never good.

The DVD works perfectly to view on my DVD player to watch on television. It just won't open on my computer so that I can make another copy. So I'll go the professional route.

To answer the question about language, it was strange that when I began the download and it showed the various languages available, English was not one of them. I thought it would default to English if I didn't choose another one, but it didn't.

As per #9, does the DVD play on other computers?

They copy programs suggested simply produce a new copy of the disk without you needing to browse it.

It is not beyond possibility though that your computer drive does not like the disk brand - I've run into this many times.

EDIT:
Language question. Difficult to check that out because I already have CDBurnerXP in and running fine, so am reluctant to take it out and install it again. I had no issue with it initially and use it all the time, as do many forum members. Sorry, just don't know.
