DVD-R editing

Can DVD-R discs be edited on a computer ?? I have several that have been finalized and can be viewed (unedited)on my Tv BUT I would like to find some way to use editing software on my computer.

Help appreciated...

Finalized = frozen = no change possible.

But you can, of course, copy the contents to your hard disk, clear the read-only attribute, edit whatever you want, and burn it to a new DVD.

Windows Explorer and copy it using your favorite copy method (like ctrl-C+ctrl-V or drag and drop or the copy icon in the toolbar).

That's all.
