CD/DVD recording advice please

  Enoch 13:25 25 Sep 2006

In the current issue of PC Advisor one can instal, from the free disc that comes with the magazine, a programme entitled "Paragon Easy CD/DVD Recorder 3.0 full program"

I have a laptop running XPhome with a CD-R, CD-RW and a DVD player installed.

My question is; if I load this free programme, does it mean that I will now be able to record DVD's from existing DVD's, or have I missunderstood the programme offered.

I would like advice prior to my installing said programme please

You will not be able to record DVD's as you only have a DVD player but you should be able to record CD's.

Thanks DumboFixer, in that case what does the Paragon offer as I was already able to record onto blank CD's?

It offers you the facility to record to dvd which is a different ball game to cd's . Even if you had a dvd writer you would still need software to be able to use it.You may already have the software if you have Nero.writers are not expensive
