Default Does Nero allow me to backup a full DVD to a blank 9.4GB DVD-R?

sponsored links

I have not yet purchased a DVD burner, but soon will. Does Nero allow me to backup a full DVD movie to a blank 9.4GB DVD-R? I noticed that with the blank 9.4GB DVD-R, you have to manually flip it over to burn the other half. If you use those DVD splitting softwares such as IFO???? to burn on each side, do I still need to flip the DVD if I was to play it on my stand alone Apex 1500? Else, would I need to rip the movie to my hard drive first and use some kind of authoring software? I own a full version of Nero and can upgrade it, I don't want to spend too much money. Any suggestions for burning something from a VCR or 8MM tape? Should I go out and buy a cheap All-in-Wonder card?

Yes, your going to have to flip the DVD-R in order to play the other side.

Those 9.4GB DVD-R's are just double sided with 4.7gb on each side. You treat each side as you would any standard single-sided 4.7gb DVD-R

I take it you're under the impression that you could just use nero to read the original dual layer dvd & then put in a double sided blank dvd-r & nero would tell you when to flip it over to burn the rest ?

If only it was that easy mate, you would need to use the guide on the net on how to split a dvd into 2 parts & burn each side but doesn't that then totally ruin the whole point of dvd if you have to get up half way through the film to turn it over ?

I wonder if dvdxcopy would make it two disks & then you can just flip the disk? Seems like it would do that for you. How does your dvd drive read a 9 gig dvd?
