DVD Formatting

  Yo Ho 07:51 14 Sep 2004

I wanted to do a backup to DVD. I'm using "Drop To Cd", which supports DVD too. When I go to burn, I get the message, DVD not formated. I am using Verbatum 4xDVDs, and have burn speed set to 4x. My drive is DVD+, and so is the medium.
Any ideas.

I don't know the package you are using, but suggest that you invest in a copy of Nero or similar. This includes modules to do exactly what you want to do (In-CD) plus everything else you will ever need for DVD writing. It performs faultlessly on my system. I tried getting by with the software that I had in the cupboard when I first had a DVD writer - it was a frustrating experience which I wouldn't wish on anyone; expensive too, as DVD made costly coffee mats!

If you look in your drive properties you may only be able to drag and drop to CD.
