    Have 2 drives rather than one to be used to read and write movies. Need help in how to use to copy and burn in one step rather than having to copy to hard drive and than burn. You can copy and burn from one drive to the other without copying to temporary file on harddrive? Need help.

    Yes, you can. The process is referred to as "burning on the fly", and doing so has a propensity to create poor quality burns if you're not familiar with your system, since the buffer underrun protection in your burner will be more apt to be engaged (stopping and starting the burner/laser--as opposed to burning continuously without interruption)--especially at faster read and burn speeds.

    Consequently, I recommend you do not burn on the fly until you become an expert with respect to knowing how your system and burners are capable of performing.
