I have a Panasonic DVD Recorder that uses RAM discs which are excellent but only within the recorder itself - I want to see videos on my PC
I haven't been very succesful in recording on my DVD recorder and playing back on the PC. My recorder does take DVD-RW which it has to format first - then I record & finalise but still my computer doesn't recognise the DVD either in Windows Media Player or in InterVideo Win TV Gold. My computer is 4 years old could this be the problem?
I have a Panasonic DVD Recorder DMR-EH50 which I got at Xmas. If I want to play a recording on my PC then I always use DVD-RAM discs. These have the advantage of being able to delete, edit and record 1,000's of times without any loss of quality. In fact I have never bothered using DVD-RW as they are not as reliable, and picture quality is poor in comparison.
As your PC is 4-years old, then your DVD would not support DVD-RAM disks.
LG supply excellent DVDRW's that support the majority of DVD's including DVD-RAM at about £30 for OEM versions.
Suggest you use the Panasonic DVD-RAM disks. If you do a search on here you will find some good prices for them. Hope this of help.
