    If you mostly want to back up your DVD collection and archive TV and video clips, then a DVD+/-RW for your PC and a TV Capture Card (or vid card with DVI) would be a cheaper and more useful tool.

    You would need to find an application to remove the illegal encryption from your legally-purchased DVD movies so you can encode and burn them. You can find that sort of thig most anywhere on the Web, and you are within your rights to make one backup copy for yourself.

    Better yet is the fact that there are few removable storage devices capable of storing the huge amount of data that a DVD-R can hold; this makes them an excellent choice for backing up large hard drives, thousands of high-quality photos or hours of digital video from your camera.

    And they are getting cheaper by the day.

    Definitely go with a DVD burner in your computer. A good one is the NEC ND-3520.

    Ive got a Sony Dual Layer DVDRW in my comp and love it.

    Going to add a tuner/capture card soon and see how that works out.

    To back up movies I use DVD Shrink 3.2 and love it. Have yet to burn a disc that I couldnt play in a standalone dvd player, and the quality is pretty good.
