I've copied video recordings of my old band's gigs from VHS cassettes to the hard drive of my Panasonic DMR-EX768EB, with a view to then transferring the material to DVDs for posterity. Once on the hard drive, I've chapter-ised each title to enable skipping from song to song, and created playlists for copying to DVD. So far, so good. However, the various restrictions and limitations specified in the user manual with regard to maintaining chapter-isation are a major brain-bender. Having got to grips with them (or so I thought), the key issue seems to be that chapters are only maintained on the DVD copy if the playlist is copied across in high speed mode; if not, default chapters are created on finalisation at intervals of about five minutes, if you're using DVD-RWs (as I am). When the recording mode is set to one of the non-high speed modes, the display shows the DVD capacity in hours, and the percentage of the 4.7 GB 120 min disk that will be taken up by a 1 hr 55 min title is consistent with the non-high speed mode currently selected (e.g. 95% of 2 hrs available at SP, 47% of 4 hrs available at LP, etc.) Fair enough, but when I set the recording mode to high speed, the on-screen display changes to denote the capacity of the DVD being written to in MB rather than hours (i.e. capacity rather than time), and says that the 1 hr 55 min title I want to copy would take up 176% of the space available on the DVD. I'm as sure as I can be that I'm not breaking any of the rules regarding use of FR recording mode, mixed audio types, an excessive number of deleted segments, etc. I don't understand (and the manual doesn't explain, so far as I can see) why use of the high speed mode should cause a title of less than two hours in length to exceed the capacity of a two-hour DVD. I can appreciate that having an index to enable the chapterisation would occupy some space, but not that it should appear to practically double the size of the source material! How come use of high speed mode doesn't just alter the time it takes to make the copy? More importantly, any ideas for a workaround that would enable keeping the chapters?
