Panasonic DMR-E85H Hard drive query?


Standard Member
ok just a quickie
is it possible to take the hard drive out of my pany DMR-E85H and connect it to a pc?
for my pc(vista ultimate) to read the hard drive and rip the files thats on it?
ive tried all ready, having the hard drive connected but pc wont read the media. it only installed drivers for it then wanted to format it

why do i want to do this? well i think the hard drive capture is better than dvd capture and much better res on hard drive

any ideas on utilities/software that will rip the hard drive

Ni, I've never heard of anyone sucessfully reading the contents of the hard drive from a Panasonic DVD Recorder on a PC.

If you use DVD-RAM discs, these are an exact copy of the data on the HDD when dubbed at High Speed.

Hope that helps.
