Your dvd player might not support dvd+rw. If you don't know check here. You can't just copy a dvd movie. Most dvd movies are dvd9(dual layered) or two 4.7 GB media. That is why it won't fit on a dvd-r. My Patriot copy is 7.59 GB. Read the tutorails on doom9.net to either put the movie on two discs or take out extras and try to put it on one disc.

Anybody can get the 9.4 gb discs.. The only problems is that all they are is a double sided 4.7 disc... To use the enitre disc, you have to take it out and flip it over....
And they are EXPENSIVE... Much better off just using 2 dvd-r's...

you cant always get 9.4mg cds in most shops ( in the uk anyway) is what i mean and i agree yes they are expensive and you are probably better following die hard members advice stick to dvdrs.

good luck.

Yeah... I agree with you.... If you do buy your disc from shops, the 9.4 discs are hard to find... I buy all my media online, thus you can pretty much find anything you want...
I actually like the 9.4 discs except they are expensive and you have to be very careful when handling them, since there is no label and data is on both sides...
