How can I connect my laptop up to my Durabrand freeview hard drive recorder so that I can copy my recordings onto my laptop and view them when I am on the road. My recorder has a serial 232 connector and I have got a 232 to USB cable but when I connect them up my laptop looks to install the hardware and I haven't got a CD (Durabrand don't supply them)so it fails to install correctly.
Easiest and cheapest way is to 1. buy a DVD recorder that can record from scart input (Alba £57 from currays) 2. connect scart out on freview recorder to scart in on DVD recorder 3. copy recordings to DVD. 4. take dvds and play on laptop.
