Data Storage and Retrival on 4.7 GB DVD media
Posted on 2002-03-04
I just purchased a firewire DVD Burner that is advertised to record up to 4.7GB on a DVD media. The system came with software that specifically deals with audio/video recordings on the DVD media but I can find no clue as how I might copy large files (like ACCESS databases) to the DVD media.
My hope was to copy a lot of very large data files to a single DVD media so that I can free up a lot of my hard drive space.
My guess is that something like ROXIO's EASY CD Creator must get into the act somehow but this software was not included with the drive. Also I do not see my DVD Burner drive listed on ROXIO's web page but it may be because the drive is relatively new.
If data files can be successfully copied onto a 4.7GB DVD media can I then read the data files while using some other typical CD/DVD ROM Drive when using another computer with Windows Explorer?
