I have a DVD recorder with a hard disk which can record onto DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, and can play...just about anything really, including DivX. To save on DVD-Rs, I was going to copy some titles on the hard disk onto rewritables, copy them onto computer, encode them into DivX and save them to DVD-R. However, I've tried both DVD-RW and DVD+RW and neither can be copied onto computer, even when finalised. I don't think it's copy protection; I can copy off DVD-Rs that I've recorded with no problems. Is there anything I need to do to copy off a rewritable, or is it just a problem with my computer/DVD recorder/DVD drive in my computer?
