Copy DVD- to DVD+

  ruskle 19:52 08 Feb 2009

A friend has copied my holiday videos onto DVD+R for me and I can only watch DVD-R. I don't think he can copy DVD-R. Is there a way I can copy DVD-R to DVD+R on my PC?

Thanls in advance.

Not if you don't have an optical drive that can read the disc in the first place.

My Pc will read both DVD-R and DVD+R but my DVD recorder player for my TV will only read DVD-R.
I can watch the DVD+R he copied from my video tape on my PC but we want to watch it on the TV screen via my DVD player. I suppose I could buy a new DVD player which plays both.
I don't think I have ever recorded a program from TV so a new digital recorder is not really necessary.

The simplest way would be to copy the contents of the DVD-R DVD to an image file, then copy that image file to a DVD+R. click here

If you have a program that deals with optical discs, and two drives, you could copy direct from disc to disc, but set the burning speed to the lowest selectable.

Nero "copy DvD" follow instructions...

just copy the dvd+R as an image file, [or video_TS folder] to your hard drive,

load in the dvd-r

use a program like imgburn to burn the file/folder to the DVD-R

i always burn at half the dvds rated speed

burning too slow causes problems

i just checked imgburn will do both processes

Many thanks chaps for your replies.
I have managed to copy all three DVD+R discs to DVD-R Lightscribe discs and they worked OK, I used Nero Vision.
