Default Question about Dvd copy to copy

sponsored links

 
I was just wondering

If i got a already backed-up dvd film, to make a direct copy of it (on the fly)
does my source drive need to be a dvd player? or can i just use my cd rom drive as the source drive?

is even making an on the fly copy possible? sorry i'm knew to this and would like to know

You need a DVDRom to read DVD's, that includes DVD-R's, etc.

Or you can use your DVDR burner to read then write the backed up DVDR.

What it is..I have a writer 16x and a dvd player. I've just bought a Pioneer 04 and was wondering what to replace I.E dvd player or cd writer, as my dvd writer only writes at 8x speed i think this is a bit slow for me. So any sugestion?

Keep all three. If your case is too small, then get a new case. If you don't have enough IDE channels, then get a PCI card.

If you don't want to spend any more money. Then you have to look at what you are going to do more. Read DVD's or copy CD's. Because if you leave the CDRW then you can copy CD's twice as quick.. Also the A04 is pretty crap at copying protected CD's.

Your DVDRom is going to be quicker at reading DVD's, so if you are planning on reading lots of DVD's then I guess you should leave that.
