Are you ready now to choose what to copy
Usually, the "Full Copy" mode is preferred, because it allows you to copy all the contents.
In any case, you can also select "Main Movie" or you can select individually the video tracks clicking on "Customize". The following step is to select the “Target”, i.e. the DVD Write in which your favourite DVD Video will be copied.
In the pictures, you can see the Standard configuration (?): Source and Target (with our burning device) and Full Copy.
