      You may be able to copy some files from a Data DVD, but you cannot copy a DVD movie onto a CD-R.

      Why?
      A DVD disk has around 5GB of data on it.
      A blank CD-R has room for 700MB of data.
      You would need a minimum of 8 CD-Rs to hold the same amount of data!

      To copy files that are within the size restrictions, just use your CD writing software, and make your DVD drive the source.

      There is software out there which does this. I beleive if you look under dvd burner utilities you will find it. I was getting ads up until a couple of weeks ago, I’ll try and send you a copy.

      If its a data DVD then you should be able to copy some of the files to CD-R. If its a movie DVD then you’ll need to re-encode the movie to a more compressed format VCD/SVCD to fit onto CD-R(s). In the process of this you will lose some quality though. You’llalso need to make sure that your intended player can read this format as some older DVD players will not play SVCDs.

      If you are trying to stuff a movie onto a CD-R
      and you can stand to watch it after the
      compression software rips it down to fit good
      luck.
