Pioneer 630H DVD Software?



I have just purchased a Pioneer 630H DVD recorder with 160GB HDD… Can anyone tell me if there is anysoftware available that can enable me to do the following?? A) use my 160GB HDD as a hard drive backup for my laptop B) Use the DVD burner for burning files and folders to from my laptop and C) get rid of the copy protection so i can copy movies from DVD to the hard drive, then use the standard “one touch” copy button to copy back to a DVD (the 630H can burn to dual layer discs) …
