    So basically you copied a copied DVD movie to a DVD-r ????

    I am interrested ! I have a HP 200i too.
    What brand DVD-r do you have and what firmware ?

    Are you sure about this ? I guess you are as suprised as I am to hear so.

    This is basically what happened,
    I got a dvd-r disc with a movie on it from a friend of mine.I was able to use a hp pc with a Hpdvd200i preinstalled. I bought a blank TDK dvd-r disk and copyed the original using a program called RECORD NOW. The original copied DVD-R disk had no brand on it but a white blank label. So can i use this drive to copy futher dvd-r disks or is something wrong here.
    Thanks

    I will test this at home !

    It is interesting because the DVD-r are much cheaper than the DVD+r.
    If this is true we have kind of a Sony Dru writer that writes + and - !!!

    How the .... is this possible, I'll be back with the testresults !
