Would like some expert advice on what to do with what I have and what i need to start copying DVDs. Don't really have much experience with computers...had a friend put one together for me but he doesn't do much DVD copying. I have the following drives and software that I think apply. DVD-rom, ATAPI DVDRW8xMax(-R/RW combo Drive), NEROBurning room 5.o, and Sonic MY DVD. Also confused with which format to use. Want to be able to play DVDs in our stand alone and am thinking DVD-R is the way to guy. Alos According to my Nero tool supported writing formats for my drive are DVD-R,DVD-RW andDVD+RW. Know it's kind of long, sorry, but would appreciate any help.
