Roxio Video Copy & Convert: How to author DVD video discs without the menus

0 users found this article helpful

You can use the Roxio Video Copy & Convert program in Easy CD & DVD Burning to author DVD video discs that do not have menus. This type of DVD can be used in demo booths where you want the video to keep playing in a loop until you stop it, or if you simply want the DVD to play right away upon inserting rather than having to select the video title from a menu.

Launching the Video Copy & Convert Application

Below are the instructions to follow to open Video Copy & Convert:

  1. Launch Easy CD & DVD Burning and click on the Video | Movies button tab on the left-hand side of the Home screen;

  2. If you own the Easy Video Copy & Convert 6 software suite, it will be the same thing - click on the Video-Movies tab from the Home screen;
  3. In the Video-Movies screen, click "Copy & Convert Video" under the Edit and Transfer section;

  4. The Video Copy & Convert application window should come up on your screen, similar to the one below;

  5. If you own the older Easy Video Copy & Convert 5, simply launch the application and you will get the Video Copy & Convert window right off the bat as this is a stand-alone application, unlike the above two, which are actually Roxio software suites.

  6. Depending on whether you want to copy a DVD or convert a video, click on the corresponding tab copy DVD | convert video at the top of the application window. This article focuses on authoring DVDs, which is under Convert Video.
