Backing up data files

Recommended Posts

When copying data files to DVD+RWs for backup, I notice that the DVD files are 'read only'. How do I back up files so that they are not converted to 'read only'?

Is there any need to format DVDs before use? If so how?

You can't write directly to DVD. If you want to use your DVD like a second hardrive or a floppy, you better should use DVD-RAM if your drive supports it.

Usually no.
