DVD-R to DVD+R: Is it impossible?


kevbo9

Question

Basically I have a bunch of burned DVD's that I want to copy. All the burned DVD's are on DVD-R and all my blanks are DVD+R. When I go to copy it won't let me use the DVD+R. Is there a way around this or can I only copy DVD-R to DVD-R?

It's not DVD-R only because I can copy a DVD+R to a DVD+R disc just fine. What it won't let me do is copy a DVD-R to a DVD+R disc.

 

I'm using a Sony Vaio with Windows Vista and Roxio EMC 9. I just open a shortcut on my desktop, insert the DVD I want burned and hit copy. Once it's recorded it, it asks me for a blank DVD. If I have recorded a DVD+R it asks me for any blank DVD. If I have recorded a DVD-R it asks me for a blank DVD-R specifically and if I insert a DVD+R it rejects it and tells me to use the DVD-R

Unfortunately I don't have two drives. It's a laptop with only one. I'm trying the save and burn image route. Hopefully it woks

 

Well that didn't work either. It's specifically asking me for a DVD-R in the drive. It does not do this when I copy a DVD+R. I don't understand why it has to be DVD-R to DVD-R only.

What type of drive do you have? It's possible that it's -R only (some are).

 

It does not do this when I copy a DVD+R.

 

What copy program in the suite are you using? Tell how you open or navigate to the program, from where?

"HAve you tried Larry's suggestion? Use Disc Copier and set destination to Image File. That will burn an ISO to the hard drive. Then burn that file to a DVD+R."

 

I'm not sure how to do this. How do I set the destination to image file?

Sorry malatekid, that post won't help!

 

Open Disc Copier, put the disc to be copied in the drive. On the source side choose CD DVD Copy. On the destination side, drop down arrow choose, disc image. Then click save as and choose a folder on your HD to save.
