can it be done
Nope. This is a limitation to the Panasonic range that may never be corrected. From an archiving perspective it is bad because you can't 'backup' a previous DVD-R. But then if it forces you to keep an original on DVD-RAM then you data is much safer anyway...
Well I transferred a recording from a DVD-R to the hard drive of my DMR-E95 only this evening
Well I stand corrected on that one then! Very glad to hear it as it was a major limitation. I suppose Sony opting to allow DVD-Video dubbing on their RX8/RX10 made Panasonic realise they were making an unnecessary stand. Anyway - that's very good news
Anyone tried this on the Panasonic E85?
Have just dubbed from DVD-R to the hard drive on my E85 this morning.
Excellent. Hopefully then this is a standard feature on all new models.
Hi guys, sorry to hijack this thread but gallese could you please tell me some of the features on the E95, at present i have the E100 but was looking to upgrade does it still have partial erase and high speed dub at any recording mode i.e LP SP..... i tried the JVC DRMH30 but it would'nt allow you to edit on the hard drive you had to meke a playlist then do it from there with bad results that's what i like about the panny it gives you great results on editing out adverts also can you put thumbnails on a finilized dvd? Thanks.
but can you dub in high speed from dvd-r to hard drive or is it in real time the same speed as the dvd is playing
garry, why not wait 12 months or so for the DVB models, HDMI equipped models?Upgrading from one generation to the immediate next gives a fairly poor return on your money.
I'm pretty certain that it is a real time dub involving re-encoding, rather like dubbing from the hard drive to a DVD-R in anything over than a high speed dub. So there will always be a slight drop in quality when you dub from a DVD-R to the hard drive.
yep, it's a real pain in the arse. I have the dmr85. You have to set the legnth of time of the recording you're making, then it's a real time dub. Apart from the slow operation of the unit, this my only gripe with this player.
just found a way to do a dvd to hard drive set to av1 on hard drive press record then go to dvd and press play on dvd and hey presto it records the dvd to hard drive
i thought it could be done messing around with it today
