    I recently bought a panasonic dvd recorder and am delighted with it, especially the time slip function which is great.
    I now want to buy some more dvd-ram discs, can any body tell the difference between type I and type II.

    Good question, Google had the answer.

    4.7GB / 9.4GB (5"/12cm/120mm) DVD-RAM's :-

    Type 1: sealed (non-removable); for single and double sided DVD-RAM

    Type 2: removable; for single sided DVD-RAM. Has a sensor hole originally closed that will stay open as soon as the case is opened for the first time so you'll know the original disk has been removed

    Type 3: empty; same as Type 2 but the sensor hole is always open;

    Type 4: removable; for double-sided DVD-RAM

    Type 5: empty; same as Type 4


    2.8GB (3"/8cm/80mm) DVD-RAM's :-

    Type 6: removable; for double sided DVD-RAM

    Type 7: removable; for single sided DVD-RAM

    Type 8: empty; for double sided DVD-RAM

    Type 9: empty; for single sided DVD-RAM

    -----------------------------------------------------------

    The DMR-E30 (and I think the DMR-HS2 as well) comes with two DVD-RAM's one of them is 120min 4.7GB Single Sided Type 2 DVD-RAM which is removeable from the cartridge also there should be a blank label stickers set included and on the back stickers it explains how to break open a Type 2 Cartridge so have a look at your DVD Recorder box contents for the above.
