That's it! I've had enough! I'm returning this pile of cr*p! It's too fussy about media, locks up when it feels like it and takes an age to play a disc. I've gone back to the superb DVDR35. How can Panasonic get this one so right and the E50 so wrong? I've decided to use The Sale Of Goods Act - not fit for it's purpose etc... I'll post a follow up to let you know how it goes.
