I'll be transferring my brother's Digital 8 camcorder tapes to DVD-R (via HDD) using a Panasonic DMR-E100 (iLink). All 30 of em! eek: ) at 45 mins each tape. He wants ALL the tapes recording and NOTHING cut out (suits me, less work to do!) Obviously the optimum quality would be to use XP to XP mode (high speed dub), but this seems a waste of DVD-R at only 45 mins. So, if I was to put two tapes to a disk giving 90 mins what is my best option, quality wise ?... 1. Camcorder to HD (xp) then HD to DVD-R (FR) 2. Camcorder to HD (sp) then HD to DVD-R (SP) and thus transferring with no conversion and at higher speed. [EDIT] I've just heard of a third option... 3. Camcorder to HD (FR, set at 92mins, pausing for tape change) then HD to DVD-R (FR) at high speed mode. [/EDIT] Also is there likely to be any compatibilty issues on his DVD player (Tosh SD110) with disks recorded in FR mode?
