    How to Copy Windows 8 DVD / CD

    I have some videos I created on DVD as well as some personal audio CDs I created. I need a simple disk copy to create additional copies of them. The computer came with Win7 and a stripped down copy of Roxio, but that won't work now that I'm on Win8 (bad decision, but that's another story).

    I am looking for a way to do these simple copies that:

    • is not too expensive
    • doesn't install bloatware
    • works (reviews on most products I've looked at are horrible)
    • does not have to do anything else, but if it does, OK
    • works on the Win8 desktop

    Any solutions to doing a simple copy of video DVD (personally created, no copy protection) and audio CD that meet the above criteria?

    I tried ashampoo and it worked very well. I had previously looked at BurnAware and it appeared to be a good program, but I chose not to install it at the time for other reasons. The program seemed to have a good reputation, though, so it is worth checking out.
