      HELP Copying to DVD from Sky+

      Hi

      I know that this has been mentioned on here before but not sure what I am doing wrong!

      I copied 2 episodes of Desperate Housewifes to DVD using the copy function.
      When I played the disc back on the DVD machine I copied on it was fine, but when I put the disc into my laptop or another DVD player it didn't recognise that there was anything recorded.

      What I am aiming at is to copy stuff from my Sky+ box onto DVD so that I can send them to my daughter for her to view on her laptop

      I used a DVD RW disc to record on with the intention of re-using the disc.

      Can anyone help?

      You'll need to 'finalise' the dvd. This basically fills in the empty space and makes it a fully playable disc.

      About as illegal as lending out a DVD to a friend, hardly the crime of the century...

      You should not need to finalise a +RW disk to play it on a PC/Laptop. You have to finalise a -RW or it will only play on the machine it was made on. Check what type you are using..
