I've read the editing section of the manual about 5 times now and I still can't see how this works (haven't tried it yet tho) The manual says on different page in the editing section: a)You can copy from -RW to HD b) Data can only be written to -RW in DVD-Video mode and c) You can not copy data written in DVD-Video mode from -RW only -VR mode All of these seem to contradict each other, since you can only write in Video mode how can you get in back. Hence the only way is if it is done on another machine, then there are warnings about not being able to do it from disc made on other machines!!!!! Does it mean only if -RW disc if not finalised??? If so why can't it un-finalise other recorders discs, if its formated to DVD-Video "STANDARD"??? Confussed.....!!!
