    If i burn a dvd ram disk using LFD-311 PC based dvd recorder,
    for some unknown reason, when i go to play it in my
    E30, it says that the disk is unformatted?

    It still plays in the pc as a normal dvd/film,

    Has anyone managed too overcome this problem
    or is it never going too be compatable
    trying to record from pc, and then play on E30?

    Regards

    Are you burning in the correct file format? The DVD Video format (.VOB files in a 'Video_TS' folder) will not be recognised if copied to a DVD-RAM and placed in an E30/50/HS2 (but will be in a PC as WinDVD etc will see it as a DVD Folder). If you want to do this you'll need to copy the files in .VRO format conforming to that specification. If you are indeed doing that - what programme are you using to compile the .VRO?

    I'll need to get back to you on that one. Going from .VRO to .VOB is easy and just requires a simple demux and import into a DVD authoring programme. Going the other way isn't something many people do.

    I'll investigate and post back (although as I'm away on work this week it may have to wait to next weekend).

    I've posted a request for information on the DVD Digest forums (which are a very good place to get PC linked technical advice on DVD authoring). The post is entitled 'Compiling in VRO File Format' and can be found in the DVD Authoring forum here:

    http://forum.digital-digest.com/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=14

    Someone here may be able to help you and, if not, I will continue to look around. I'm curious about this myself although I tend to burn most things to cheap DVD-Rs rather than worry about re-writeable media.

    ok thanks Rasczak


    Reason im backing up/copying dvds to ram
    is because im off to USA for a few weeks,
    And brother in law also has a multregion Panny e30
    over there, so wanted to backup about 7-10 of
    my sons dvds so he can play them over there

    Dont want to take the originals as they may get lost
    or damaged, and thats quite a few quids worth to lose:eek:

    regards

    Hi,

    Ulead's Media Studio Pro 7 will author in VR format and write to DVD RAM discs. I tried it last night and the disc successfully played on my E20 :)

    See http://www.ulead.com/learning/msp/msp7_09_1.htm

    There's a free 30 day trial from the Ulead website.

    OARDVD.
