    i have completed every step there is to backup my dvd however when i go to burn the files to the disc the burning software cannot read the media. I have tried about 6 different programs and they all do the same thing. My discs are clean and free of scratches. Somebody please help.

    What burning software are you using? If you are not already try Nero latest (5.5.10.28)

    I tried about 5 different softwares and all of them fail to read the discs. I havent tried nero yet but i will. Is there such thing as your dvd discs not being compatable with your dvdr drive? The drive copies cds with ease. I dont know why the dvd burner wont read the dvd r's. The drive is a combo drive on a laptop that i just purchased. I am using memorex dvdrs with the burner. I dont know what could be wrong.

    I take it that ur combo unit is a DVD WRITER, if so is it a +r or a -r writer and are u using the wrong format media.

    a +r will not write to a -r and a -r will not write to a +r.
