just as i thought ,though what intrigued me was the vcd option ,perhaps you can help me is it perfectly legal to make vcd backups -for my own personal use of my dvds -i know you can with copyrighted music but not to sure about dvds ,and if it is which software do you reccomend ,i have a dvd reader installed and cd rw sadly no dvd rw -many thanks -hol pol..

"i know you can with copyrighted music "

As with ANY copyright material - IT DEPENDS ON THE LICENSE.

I think you'll find it is NOT LEGAL to make backups of Copyrighted Music or DVDs. DVDs have loads of copy protection anyway...

However i don't think anyone I'll come knocking on your door unless you start flogging them...

I can't recommend any VCD software as I'm not careless enough to require "backup" copies of my DVDs....

In my experience Nero is very fussy about sharing a pc with other cd burning software. I have V5.5 which will write to VCD so surely V6 has it too?
