What media to back up a 6gb disc

  VNAM75 16:47 12 Sep 2008

I want to back up my supreme commander game but its too big for a 4.7gb dvdr. Can you get high capacity dvdr discs or do I need a dual layer disc? Where is the best place to get them?

If you want to make a complete copy of the disc, the simple fact is that you cant. It will be copy protected. Should your disc become damaged, and you have registered the game with the Software Vendor, then they should send you a replacement, free of charge.

If you could copy it (and yes, I know there are Way's around copyright protection systems) you would need a dual layer capable drive, and blank dual layer DVD to do it.

Many brands around, but your drive must be DL capable, and the disk's are a lot more expensive than the standard 4.7 variety.

If you have an external Harddrive copy it to there. I did this with all my games when changing computers.
