    Help on backing up DVD's Please anyone??

    Hiya

    I have decided to back up some DVD's cos I am sick of the kids scratching them and then they're done for.

    So I just copied it to the PC, put a disc in, but the pc wont read the disc, now thats probably because its a cd one, I have a few I use to back up the pc, and they work for that but I have had them for years and years.

    Anyway my software says insert DVDRW disc, so what disc do I need, i've just had a look and there are dvd-r, dvd+r,dvd-rw and dvd+rw?? This has really confused me, which do I need, does it matter???

    Sorry for being daft and thanks for your help?? Hopefully lol??

    I use convertxtodvd or nero 7

    Your dvd writer will have dvd-r or dvd+r on the front teling you which one it is.

    I've got the software (although its probably quite old), the dvd writer (burner???) says insert DVDRW, well which does it mean, does it matter.

    Its the discs I need I'm not sure about??

    i agree it's a brilliant programme :thumbsup:

    dvdrw are rewritable discs which are better for a dvd recorder as you can erase and reuse them

    dvd + or - you can only use once. once they are burned they are burned you won't be able to write over them so be careful hope this helps

    dvdrw are rewritable so maybe copy to this and check that the film has copied ok then maybe write to a plus or minus disc
