Hey I have been hearing how good DVD burners are and I got about 200 DVD’s already and I have already lost 15 in 6 months. So I’m in urgent need of making backups and stuff. Well I just need the best advice on what to buy, use and how to operate them. 1. Well I need to know whether to buy + or -. I remember reading only one will burn DVD’s. 2. What rip software do you recommend me to download? 3. Can I delete the special features with the DVD rip I download? 4. I have already got 2 CD-ROMs. One is a CD-ROM on its own and the other is a DVD player and CD-ROM. I was told this is good. Do I put the DVD movie in my DVD drive and the DVDR in the DVD BURNER? 5. Is the X12, X4 how fast it will burn? 6. Are there any brands I should avoid? 7. I read that have many layers of the DVD indicates how many GB the DVD is. Please explain. 8. In a DVD Burner. What does ‘dual layer’ mean? 9. What does 'Shrink' mean? OT. 10. How to print pictures onto a DVD disc. OT. 11. A good site to get disc pictures from and DVD covers. Sorry for so many questions. If you could give me links as well. That would be hell cool.
