    Hi,
    I have ordered a DMR-E55 DVD recorder, and have 2 questions:

    1) Can this player record with DVD-RW, as well as DVD-R, and DVD-RAM ???

    2) Can you pause a recording, say for example you are taping some Music Videos from a Sky music channel, and you want to cut out the adverts in-between....

    Thanks.......

    Sean !!!!!!!

    Can't speak from personal experience, but I believe the answers are "No" and "Yes" respectively.

    Regards,

    Speaking from personal experience the answers are NO (only -R) and YES (press the pause button)

    regards

    You can also use the Partial Erase function, i.e. you record the programme and then, after it's all done, you go back and chop out the bits you don't want. Ideal for music use as well is the Playlist function that allows you arrange music videos in the order you want.

    Get them from 7dayshop.com - 5 packs of Panasonic DVD-RAM for £11.99. Best price for the best media IMHO.

    apreading: looking at the 7dayshop site, it appears the ram are non-cartridge type - are these correct for the DMR-E55, or would one need to buy a cartridge as well.

    Sorry if it's a silly question, but only just ordered my recorder so do not know what it uses yet.

    Thanks

    Panasonic DVD recorders take DVD-RAM caddied or non-caddied.

    Seanjackdan, I know you've ordered it but if you can stretch to the E85 you wont regret it. The hard disk makes such a difference whether recording, editing or archiving. All the hassle with finding blank disks, swapping every 2 or so hours, is it a DVD-R or DVD-RAM programme. Editing isn't seemless IMO and the cost of the more expensive additional RAM disks would go some way towards the extra cost of the E85. Owning both (unfortunately) I know the benefits are huge.
