    Is it possible to transfer DV video footage to the E60, edit it with a RAM disk, take the edited footage from the RAM disk back into the camcorder then burn the edited footage from the camcorder onto a DVD-r via the E60.

    The reason i ask this is because although the camcorder i'm thinking of buying has both DV in and out the E60 only has DV in.:confused:

    One way to do it is to record on the E60 and then use a RAM capable drive on the computer to edit the RAM. Then burn it to DVD-R.

    I have a LG 4040B writer which reads and writes RAM/DVD-/DVD+ It should be around £80-£100 for a OEM version.

    There is a sticky about RAM to DVD R.

    Can't you just edit the RAM on the E60, then put it back into your camcorder, then back out of the camcorder into the E60 and burn it onto a dvd-r?

    I don't have a camcorder but the E60 does not have a DV out.

    You will still need a computer to do what you want. The computer will nead at least a DV out (firewire/USB) to go to the camcorder. You will have to use software like Ulead Videostudio to transfer to the camcorder.

    You won't be able to do it with just a camcorder and a E60 recorder.

    Ok then. I think i will get me LG 4040b or similar. :smashin:

    Or maybe i should ditch the E60 and just get a DVD-R/RAM writer/reader and Pinnacle DV 8.

    Maybe i should just buy the whole setup and have best of both worlds. :clap:

    Hmmmm :zonked: :D

    Do it! you wont regret it!!

    Ive recently purchased the E50 and also the LG burner for the PC that supports all types of dvd recording...... Im also using TMPGEnc DVD Author editing software which is the hounds danglies to work with!
    I paid around £90 for the LG from a computer fair.....And the TMPGENce editing software is available for free on monthly trials!

    Here's another suggestion from someone without a PC!

    I put my camcorder footage onto dvd-ram in a type one caddy, I edit it, then play it back on a Panasonic S75 and record it onto dvd-r.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards

    Dude

    I certainly think you're better off buying a RAM drive for your PC BUT if your DV Camcorder has an AV in then you could bounce the footage back to the DV and then back again to DVD-R...

    You would lose quality if you did that. The computer way would mean it would mean no quality is lost.

    And my way would also ensure no loss in quality, wouldn't it?

    It could lose quality.

    The only way to be sure is to go digital all the way through.

    I've tested my method and there was indeed a drop in quality. I'm going to chuck all my camcorder footage onto dvd-r and edit it at a later date.

    LG electronics

    DVD -R/+R/RAM x4speed
    M4040-B @ £76.99

    DVD -R/+R/RAM x8speed
    GSA-4081-B @ £93.16

    Both incl VAT @ ebuyer

    I got the x4 speed version as you can only burn +R discs at x8, and I prefer -R, saw no benefit of going for the x8.

    Both the above are OEM versions, (i.e. without fancy box and software) - lets face it you can obtain the DVD Burning sw via the net, so why pay £20 more for fancy box?

    All my complicated image processing done on the PC and output via the LG drive, the E100 is used for display and extracting data from broadcast programmes.
