I am trying to copy from a dvd onto dvd-wr for first time - it only seems to default to copying for the minimum 60 mins but the dvd-wr disc I have staes various lengths of recording time upto 4 hours - anyone can plsae tell me how I go about this as the PC manual gives no help

I realise this is probably basis stuff for you lot out there but i am still learning basics

David,

What kind of DVD is it you are trying to copy and to what format are you trying to copy to?

You cannot copy it using normal copying method, some softwares can do this, but they are all illegal in most countries.

PC Advisor reviewed DVD / Movie software in its December 2003 issue. It mentions DVD X Copy as one softwaqre programme that can back up movies (Although this is illegal in the UK)

Your Lord of the rings is on a DVD9 disk and your blank is probably a DVD5 disk. If you want to copy a film (theoretically,as it is not legal and nobody ever does it!) a programme caller DVD shrink would override the copywrite and shrink the file to fit on a DVD5 disc, it would then let you burn it, so I am told!! Why are you using a RW disk, much better to burn to DVD-R then you can play your theoretical disk in almost all types of player.
