I bought a dvd+rw/r drive with dvd+rw discs from pc world. I tried to copy data from a dvd-R to a dvd+rw using 'Easy cd + DVD Creator 6' but it always get stuck on 66% when preparing data. Is this because the dvd's are not compatible or is there a problem with cd creator? Would i be better off with a dvd- RW/R drive?

Would appreciate some advice

thanks

A DVD+ SHOULD be able to read a DVD-. I think the incompatibility problems were only with the set top DVD players and that was mostly with the early ones. Are you able to read the DVD- disc with the DVD+ drive? If you can, then try making an image file first then writing that to another DVD. Or else it could just be the ROXIO 6 that you're having problems with.
