    Since there's no copyprotection involved,every installed burning software is capable to do that.....just choose the "copy disc" option of your installed burning program.

    yes but i have to transfer the dvd data to my computer first and then put in a blank dvd and burn the data. So do i just copy everything from my win 7 dvd to my pc and then burn it when i put in a blank dvd? i dont need to use a iso burning program

    Would be be better off doing so; just make an .iso of the disc and the create another DVD from that .iso.

    You can do it that way,but there's a possability to mess up the boot option that way....better follow n8chavez's advice and create an image of your disc,then burn it....
