Sorry if my questions are stupid. I have an internal Philips DVD+RW 9 drive. It can also do CD+RW. I bought some DVD blanks. Memorex DVD-R. I guess DVD- cannot be used/burnt on DVD+?? I get an error message "Please insert a blank or rewriteable DVD 9." I read through some of the messages on this forum, and I figured DVD 9 blank DVDs aren't even out yet? Anyways, I just want to burn movie DVDs, so that I may watch them (on a computer mostly). Another thing, I realised that the forum is about making backup DVDs of ones that you already possess. I want to rent DVDs, and make a copy for myself. I don't really possess it, so would that be illegal in the United States?
