This is my first post, new to the whole process of computer based DVD recording, and I am lost.
Recently I purchased Nero 8 Ultra because I wanted to accomplish two objectives:
1) Copy 4 years worth of football DVD's (recorded on my DVR and copied to disk using a standalone recorder) onto better quality DVD's (TYs which I have bought) and
2) Make a hard drive copy in the process in the event something happens to the disks.
I installed a Sony DVD RW DRU 840A as it got a good review here. It plays fine.
I have used both Nero Express and Nero Burning ROM with no success at all. It will "read" for hours and nothing happens. Quite honestly, I am sure which of these programs to use nor, for that matter, whether either will do what I am wanting to do.
I am so lost, I am not sure where to start with questions. Does either program do what I want ? Might there be something in my set - up ?
I am open to any and all suggestions, including a better software that accomplishes my objectives.
I do not believe copy protection is an issue as I have been able to make copies going from a standalone player to my standalone recorder.
Thought, suggestions, questions ???
