I have a Panasonic E85. I have finally got everything (VCR, TV, Sky) working together (don't ask!) and I'm really pleased with it. My query is, I'm a bit confused with video formats. I am using a new computer system, with XP and therefore have Windows Moviemaker. I also have Pinnacle 9. I tried both with a short film, recording to both CD-R and DVD-R but neither disk was recognised by the recorder. What settings should I be using to make this possible, or will I have to record the finished film to the DV tape and then transfer this to the recorder? Regards and thanks in advance Pat Macguire PS I have Nero 6.
