is it possable to use a blank dvd in a cd-rw instead of using an ordanary blank cd as i want to back up at least 6 gigs and a dvd will hold about 7 gigs or so iam told...thanks in advance

DVDs hold about 4.7Gb and the new dual layer ones about 9Gb. You will need special recorders to record onto any DVD. Why not just spread the backup over 12 CDs?
