    The sticky concentrates on RAM ad -RW,but I have some DVD+ discs and I wondered if there was anyway to copy them over to dvd- other than a standard real time player to recorder copy.I have a Toshiba -RW rewriter in my laptop,which reads DVD+ fine,so can I copy to the HDD in the laptop and back to a dvd- disc?I tried doing a single disc with Nero,which read the disc,but failed before burning.

    Use DVD Decrypter. Read the DVD - to an ISO image and then burn the ISO image to the DVD +.

    Got it the wrong way round.

    Anyway it doesn't matter and it will work and it is freeware.

    You need to use the ISO read mode. This will create a ISO image of the DVD.
    Put the blank in the drive and then use the ISO write mode to create the new DVD.

    It's in the Mode drop down menu.

    That a whole new problem.

    There isn't one program that can do it. I have done it in the past but it took four or fove programs and several long hours. Also a whole DVD with menu's is impossible.
