    Hi Everyone,

    I have been on a few blank media websites and they list 2 types of DVD-RAM blank:

    DVD-RAM Media
    DVD-RAM Video

    I have a Panasonic DMR-E50 can I use either???:confused:

    I know there are quite a few HS-2,E50/30/20 owners on the forum that will know the answer to this one:hiya:

    your assistance will be welcome:D

    Short of seeing the descriptions you should be able to use them. Checking the capacity will tell you for certain - the Panny recorders won't play the 2.6GB or 5.2GB disks (you do have to look quite hard to find these disks though). If they are 4.7GB disks or 9.4GB disks then they are the 12cm standard and will work.

    For reference you can play 8cm 2.8GB disks as well but you wouldn't want to use these.

    Apart from the camcorder media they all amount to the same thing.

    Why not get the cheap Mirror £2-98 (Caddyless) discs from SVP. they are fine..Just handle them with respect and avoid fingerprints. No real need for media in a caddy if you can do that...

    :D

    Thanks Malcolm,

    Have you had any coasters with these, are you using a E20/30/50 or HS2?

    I have a E50 but it has been fussy with DVD-R Blanks, with (Unbranded Ritek) I was getting 3 coasters out of 11 discs.

    Another Mirror DVD-RAM disk user (20 disks) and so far 100% success in both my RAM recorders. Only used Be-All (Samsung) DVD-R in the E50 and so far so good!

    sdm197. So far I have used about 40 of the Mirror RAM discs from SVP and fingers crossed "No coasters". Anyhow! SVP give a 1 year warranty against faulty workmanship on DVD discs. So no worries really........

    Why have I purchase as many as 40 you might be wondering!!!
    Well i am a sad person:D that is major Big Brother fan and have decided to record the series on RAM in XP mode and if I like the series I will transfer to DVD-R at my leasure......Mad I know but I am seeking treatment for it..:D :D

    P.S. I forgot the other part of your question.

    I am using both the E20 and the E30. Hence the ability to copy the RAM to DVD-R later.
