Hi all i've been happilly archiving all my old music videos to my faithful panny E55 until today when i've hit a snag. the machine turned itself off on a particular track. i turned it back on and after much chuntering to itself it let me carry on. the dvd plays ok but i cant copy the second half of the tracks to my pc for reauthoring (i like to make new dvd's of different tracks from different dvd's) I decided i must have accidentally hit the OFF button so i bit the bullet and decided to re-do another dvd from my videos. amazingly the same thing happened again at the same point on the same track. this time i couldnt continue, couldnt name the disc or finalise it. Are these machines sensitive to something on tape that makes them turn off...there shouldnt be any copyright issues as they're all home made video tapes of tv footage. any ideas gratefully received.
