    naged to edit with Pinnacle 9+.
    Unfortunately, my PC only has a CD RW - No problem I thought, I have, and this is the real question, a Pan E100 DVDR, so I thought the firewire connection from PC to DVDR would allow me to digitally record from edit on PC to DVD - But, No! the E100 asks, "What programme" - B.I.I.K (Buggered if I know)
    Great, I'll try to record from PC to my camcorder - still no joy!

    I've hit a wall and don't know what to do. Do I have to buy a separate DVD burner, and if so what sort?

    (Does anyone know how I can teach myself video editing!!!!!!!!) :zonked: :zonked:

    I'm afraid there seems to be no way at present of fooling DVD recorders into accepting firewire transfers from a PC. Only DV cameras are recognised. :(

    If you are certain that your camcorder is not equipped to record back from the PC then a new burner is the answer.

    As you have a Panasonic recorder it might be a good idea to get a burner which can handle DVD-RAM as well as -R and -RW.
    This one is still probably the best.

    Hi Johnjackthom, thanks for that, I half expected the answer although I couldn't find a reference in the Pan manual. Any suggestions re external DVD-RAM burners as the laptop I have wont (I dont think) accept your suggested model? I'd like an external one as I'm probably going to change my desktop, which would accept the suggested drive

    I don't have experience of external drives although I understand they are a fair bit more expensive.

    One way around this is a box which houses normal IDE drives and then connects to a USB 2 port, but this may still be a pricey solution.
