A friend has a backed up copy of a DVD movie set that was purchased.
The original was lost in a fire.
I want part of one of the DVD's in the set.
Is this as simple as inserting their backup disc in to my DVD rom, save the file, and then burn it to another disc for myself?

Or since they are in another city, ask them to burn a blank disc and just give me the disc.
This may not work if they do not durn it properly and in the correct format.
I've only burned one DVD and there is "authoring" and other steps to take to get it to play on any DVD player (table top, car, pc)
