Here is a genuine case:
Q: If I create the .iso of my master and burn it back to my new DVD, is that the same thing as having software that duplicates the DVD? Is that what a DVD duplicator is doing behind the scenes?
A: Well, it is - and it isn't. As long as you're talking NON-DRM source DVD it is. And that's exactly what a DVD (or CD) duplicator is doing. Add DRM and it's a different story. Commercial DVD duplicators deal with the DRM issues.
If you have ISO existing in your computer, you can burn it to DVD to create DVD duplication (please do it legally and for non-commercial use only). You may rely on some professional DVD copy software like WinX DVD Copy Pro which supports burning ISO image back to DVD on Windows 10, 8(.1), 7, XP.
But please note that creating DVD from ISO image file is not completely the same thing as cloning DVD to ISO, and the effect of output DVD might greatly affected by a great many factors, including:
1. DVD-ROM: There are too many types and versions to be all supported;
2. Types of DVDs: There are also various DVD disc types in the market, including DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, DVD-R DL, DVD+R DL, and DVD 5 (4.7G) and DVD 9 (8.5G); for burning ISO to DVD with WinX DVD Copy Pro, please prepare blank writable DVD-/+R (DL), DVD-/+RW (DL) or DVD RAM and make sure it is DVD 9 with 8.5G capacity;
3. The process of ISO to DVD burning may conflict with the similar DVD burner software bound to the (Windows) operating system or other third-party software. (so please uninstall similar DVD copy or burning software first.)
