I finally got a response from LG regarding my question. I believe the response answered my question directly.
That exchange with LG is below. I am somewhat concerned by the implication that not all writable DVD's will work, e.g., Memorex (which happens to be what I have a pile of). What else is not compatible? So, as instructed, I purchased one of the most highly rated DVD Burner Program, albeit expensive (Aimersoft DVD Ripper for Windows),, and attempted to burn some home videos to a DVD. It seemed as though I was doing it right (find the source, find the target, hit Start'), but nothing got burned to the DVD, even though it seemed to indicate that it was. Home inventory apps for mac.
So, while the answer I received from LG was very good and informative, I am still sitting here with years of digitized home movies I want to burn to DVD's for my siblings and children and an expensive burner and burner program, but no DVD's burnt, or is it burned. I haven't given up. In fairness, LG gave me a number to call, but I don't know if this is a LG problem now. If I find a solution, I will try to relocate this thread and add how I did it. Please do not hold your breath. Thank you for contacting LG Electronics ------Reply to Your Inquiry------- Dear Peter, Thank you for contacting LG Electronics.
