Hi All,

I am thinking of buying a DVD rewriter. I mainly want it to burn my photo's and data as they are getting to big for cd.

Also my kids have DVD's that they keep scratching and then can't play. I want to be able to copy the origanals and keep them and let the kids use the copies.

Does it matter what type rewrite system I use and will I be able to use Nero and copy the DVD.

Are some types of DVD systems better for data and some better for films etc.

Any help would be great. Cheers

A DVD rewitter can be used for data or creating DVDs... It's up to you what DVD-RW you choose... I would be a Dual-Layer DVD-RW (allows up yo 8.5gb on one disk) and for it to be able to burn to + and - disk media....

I can't help you on copying the DVDs.... It is illegal and is against the guidelines of the forum...

Write once CDs tend to be more reliable and much cheaper than re-writeables.

So if you want long life go for top names quality blanks. You can always add more, data session by session. (for CD, include DVD the same rules apply)

Bear in mind that at present no electronic medium is as permanent as the population at large thinks it is!
