    Hey,

    I do not have a LG drive, i am using a DVD+ or - RW // DL on my HP laptop. I have some backup games burned to DVD-R already. I was wondering, is it possible to copy an img of a backup without the LG or do you still need an LG drive to read backups?

    I tried imgburn and ashampoo studio 8 earlier to copy an img from my animal crossing and donkey kong barrel blast burned DVD-R's and they came out as 3.99GB? I'm assuming these wouldn't work because they are soppose to be aprox. 4.37GB.

    Any suggestions? [​IMG]

    ok i dont have it completely solved but for some reason my drive will only makea 4.37GB backup on Verbatim DVD-r, not on memorex or HP it will make 3.99GB anyone know why? [​IMG]


    EDIT: its because i patched it with back-up creator during the first backup launcher release.
