    That's just linked with the recording format used - have a look here.

    It's a DVD disc that acts just like a HDD.

    Thanks for the reply Rasczak.
    Im compiling a shortlist and so far i have these 2 on it.
    Toshiba DR3
    panasonic DMRES10

    I just need a dvd recorder to replace video and record on dvd so my daughter can watch stuff on her dvd player too.
    I may choose one with a hd but if dvd ram does the same maybe i dont need a hd.
    I wont be editing stuff but may need one for backing up camcorder footage.
    video plus would be good too.

    DVD RAM palyers are thin on the ground so make sure your daughters player will be compatible with RAM discs as most other makes are not. Es10 starts and records very quickly which may or may not be of use. It also has RGB input and loopthrough meaning best quality recordings from SKY box or freeview box.

    Must say I like mine a lot but RAM discs make more noise due to their higher spin speed albeit once up and running its not a major issue

    I would be recording on dvd r or rw for my daughter pwood and just use dvd ram for myself.
    Thanks for the info on RGB input and loopthrough as i will be recording from freeview and old sky analogue for the odd bike race on eurosport.
    Looks like the Panasonic is at the top of the list at the moment.
