    Assuming you just intend to use windows media player

    Insert dvd into cup holder (some might call it the dvd drive)
    If DVD auto starts then stop it by pressing the (you guessed it) stop button
    Then just click on burn in the top menu on media player and following the instructions

    Dont forget you'll need a blank DVD of the correct type (+/- R) or you may even need a dual layer if the video is a long one
    If its an old PC/laptop ensure you actually have a DVD burner installed!
    Below is a link to my website.

    Your wife is probably right, I bet you have got Windows movie maker software, have a look in all programmes, you will find it by clicking on the start button in the bottom left hand corner of the task bar. Without checking as to how, |I think you can copy the DVD to your hard drive.
