    At the bottom of DVD Decrypter it says its not ready to burn the DVD b/c of incompatible medium installed. Does this mean my new laptop can't burn DVD's? I thought it could b/c the software on the desktop says it can burn DVD's. Any ideas?

    your gonna have to sit down and see what is in your laptop. CD-RW drive.... DVD-Rom Drive .... DVD-RW or DVD+RW or DVD-/+RW Drive. It makes a big difference. If you have Nero on your computer use the Nero Tool Info to help sort it out.

    as you see in this pic I can use DVD-/+RW and DVD-/+RW Dual Layer disks.

    where would I find this info?? But at first glance it looks like it is a CD-R/W DVD ROM drive.....I'm not a happy camper. This was suppose to be able to burn DVD's

    Sorry yopu beat me to the punch .... Nero Can help you figure it out. If you don't have nero there is a free trial version that you can get as well as other tools out there that can help you. PC Wizard is one that comes to mind as well as dvd Info can tell you as well.

    what you have is a cdrw / dvd Rom combo drive. If you want to back up your movies you will have to put them on cd's.

    putting them on CDs means that they cannot be viewed on a DVD player though right??

    no .... you need to make a VCD and you can watch them on your dvd player. The quality is not as good but not to bad. NeroVision Express will do it for you once you rip it from your dvd and there is allot of other programs to use as well. If your laptop has USB2 you could try an external DVD burner but I have no expeirience with them.
