    Guys, anyone know if it will be possible for me to back up my mp3's and wav files that I have stored on many CDR's over to a 9.4gb DVD-Ram.

    I was going to use my Denon DHT-500SD to feed in the MP3's and wavs via optical tos link cable to my Panasonic DMR-E55 and record them onto a single 9.4gb DVD-Ram disk. If this is possible, would I have to play the tracks individually or is there some way of dragging and dropping them directly on to the DVD-Ram disk.

    :lease:

    cheers

    You can copy them to RAM using a PC. It would be restricted to being an archival/backup medium, though, as the E55 only plays MP3 on CDs.

    Cheers. So DVD-RAM disks cannot store MP3's that can be played in a MP3 compatible audio player?

    I havn't got round to buying a DVD re-writer for my PC yet. Waiting for Dual layer technology to settle down.

    What would be the best method of storing my MP3's to play in my DMR-E55 then ?

    I don't think that the DMR-E55 has a digital audio input.

    Quite correct - the E55 has no way to 'receive' your files other than recording the analogue output of your amp. By far the best way to do what you want is to purchase a DVD burner - the LG4120/4160 are very good choices - as these can be picked up for under £50.

    Hopefully with the next batch of HDD players you will be able to store and playback mp3 files in the HDD
