Thank you in advance if you contribute to helping me xx
Problem: I want to make back-up copies of my DVD collection.
Does nero v5.5 allow dvd copy on the fly? If not please tell me what software does.
My understanding is that ‘on the fly’ will allow me for example-to put an original dvd rom media into a DVD rom drive, and put a DVD+R/RW media (to make the copy) into a DVD+RW drive(meaning there will be no need to rip to the HD first and then burn from the image to the DVD+RW disk afterwards-thus making the copy process much quicker)…Is this a correct assessment?
I already have a Philips DVDRW228k/00 (DVD+RW drive to do the burning with).
Problem: I need either a standalone DVD-ROM drive or a combi CD-RW/DVD-ROM to read from, and i don’t know what is best to go for?
Do i go for an Aopen DVD-1648 (as a DVD-ROM drive) or an LG GCC-4120B (as a combi dvd/cdrw drive)?
I noticed looking at the spec of the LG that it supports reading of DVD-R and DVD-RW which i don’t think the Aopen does-do you think it’s best to go for the LG?
The question is do i need to buy another DVD unit seeing as i already have the Philips-i.e. i have plenty of disk space, and can’t i just use the one same drive to rip an image of the original dvd (using the software i don’t know of yet)-to the harddrive, and then just use the same drive to burn the image with onto the DVD+RW media?
Btw, i also have a cdrw-is there anyway to upgrade the firmware to make it capable of reading DVD-ROMs? (thus meaning i wouldn’t need to buy a new dvd unit anyway)
