I installed Nero 7 Ultra Demo, but it won't even recognize if I insert DVD-R 8x 4.7G DVD.

Are you saying that Nero won't recognise that you have a blank dvd in the drive?

What do you mean by 'burn data DVD on CD-RW"?
If the file(s) you have on the dvd are less then 700MB then you can put them on a CD-RW, otherwise it won't fit.

that's right, Nero won't recognize it.
My bad, I want to burn data (size more than 3GB) on DVD and use the CD-RW for that since I don't have DVD-RW.

CD-RW's cant write DVD's, if you can do that then why would there be DVD-RW's ?

all dvd burners are RW compatible. What you need is a DVD-RW disc :)

You can't burn 3GB's onto a CD-RW disk. :)

From what i understood he is trying to use his cd writer to burn a DVD. It cant be done and you need to get yourself a dvd writer!

You can't burn a DVD in a CD-RW as said above.

You can put 3 GB of data onto CD-RW disks. It will take 5 CD's.

Use WINZIP to creat an archive of the data and tell WINZIP to spread it across (5) 650 MB files. Then burn the files to the 5 CD's. You will need to swap CD's in and out to read the data and if one disk is damaged the entire archive is probably lost.

Nero Ultra has a backup utility that will allow you to do the same thing (burn across multiple CDs) but I have never used it.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
