I have a friend of mine who has a first generation DVD player and refuses to buy a new DVD since he spent $400.00 on it. Needless to say even the DVD-R format doesn't work on his machine. Is there a way to make a DVD+/-R format compatible with his machine. He has asked me to make a backup of a DVD of a conference that his relative attended. I own CLONEDVD and NERO ULTRA. I understand that normally the various other formats won't work with certain kinds of machines but I wonder if there is any way to fool an older machine into taking the DVD.
