    I have just taken the plunge and ordered a Pioneer 106 dvd+-r and as I have very little knowledge with backing up software/burning, what have people had sucess with that i could easily pick up?

    Depends what you want to backup really. I tend to only use Prassi Primo DVD these days but I don't believe the A06/106 is recognised on it so you'd have to use RecordNow with the latest PX Engine updates (same thing basically but updated)

    A lot of people still use Nero but I've never found it that great with my 104 and Panny LSD311 :(

    I'm not sure about +R but for -R you should stick with discs using a Ritek dye (G03 or G04) for best results IMHO. I've had great success with console backups and DVD-Video with these (mainly Traxdata) and have stopped buying the more expensive Verbatim that I used to swear by. I'd really advise you stay away from the real cheapies, especially Princo dyes which you find on many discs inlcuding some Datawrite/Datasafe... you gets what you pay for so check out the info on them before buying

    dvd2one is good for 1:1 backups. Sadly not every type of dvd is copyable.

    DVD2One is great as is Pinnacle Instant Copy. DVD Shrink is supposed to be quite good and is free but I haven't used it yet as there are sometimes still a few problems with the results, especially regarding lockups on the layer break

    Unless the original DVD-Video is a single layer (DVD5) which is very rare these days then it is not going to be a 1:1 backup as something has to either go or be downsampled. And you'll still need software to actually burn the backup
