I’ve been looking at buying a DVD+R drive for the sole purpose of backing up Movie DVDs.
I’ve spent the last few days reading endless FAQs and product reviews and i feel i understand the basics of DVD+R/RW, DVD-R/RW, and DVD-RAM at least on the surface level.
The problem is virtually NO product reviews really cover the “ease of backup” of Comercial DVDs. (with good reason i guess)
I was looking at basicly buying the fastest DVD+R that i could find and just going from there, but there doesnt seem to be much concrete info available as it relates to DVD backup on -perticular- drives.
What im looking for:
What DVD+R should i buy for backup of Movie DVDs ?
What DVD Media do i buy? Does 8X media even exist?
Does the DVD+R drive even matter for Movie duplication or is it more the software ?
I was looking at buying a Plextor PX708A (for the 8X DVD+R) but im willing to buy anything that will make life easier on me.
Im not sure if it matters in terms of “types of copyprotection” but key things i want to backup are:
Star Trek: The Original Series
Twilight Zone (Original series)
The Civil War (Ken Burns)
The World At War (narrated by Lawerence Olivier)
thanks in advance
