I've had my E85 for a few months now, but today is the first time I've tried to dub. I selected 3 programmes (3 x 2 hours - recorded in EP mode) from my HDD to transfer to DVD-R. When I tried to select 'high speed dub' I got a message saying this was not an option. Why? is this because I recorded the 3 programmes in EP mode? If so should I record in another mode in future? Anyway I went ahead and selected EP and I am now dubbing, but is it going to take 6 hours? Am I transfering in real time? Lastly; I'm giving this DVD-R to a friend, do I have to 'finalize' the disk? Any help much appreciated.
