Can you change a DVD-r to a DVD r?

When DVD burners were first bundled with computers, each brand had their own DVD format. Some of the DVD burners used DVD-R, while others used DVD+R. The formats differed very little in terms of quality settings, however a computer that created one DVD format could not play the other. After time, computers gained the ability to burn both DVD-R and DVD+R formats. After this change, it became possible to copy the contents of a DVD-R and convert it onto a DVD+R.1Check to make sure you have a DVD burner that can read both DVD+R and DVD-R disks. Without a drive that can do this, you can not perform the conversion process. Most computers created within the last several years are capable of reading both DVD+R and DVD-R. The manual for the computer should state this information.2Insert the DVD-R disk into the computer. The disk must be a data DVD and not a video DVD. A video DVD can not convert from DVD-R to DVD+R. However, if the DVD-R disk is a data disk, you will be able to convert the files.3Double-click "My Computer" (or "Computer") and double-click the DVD icon. A window opens, displaying all of the contents currently saved on the disk.4Click and drag over all the files you want to convert over to a DVD+R. This highlights all of the content. Click in the highlighted area and drag it to the computer's desktop.5Eject the DVD-R and insert the blank DVD+R into the DVD burner on your computer. Launch the DVD burning software.6Select to create a data DVD, then click and drag the files from your desktop into the main viewing area of the DVD burner.7Click "Burn" and the DVD+R begins to burn. Once the burn process completes, the conversion from DVD-R to DVD+R is done.
