Hi, Something that may be of interest. I recently bought a Toshiba SD-M1712 DVD-ROM drive for my PC as it can also read DVD-RAM discs and I wanted a way to get my DMR-E30 recordings into the PC so I can edit add a proper menu etc and burn back to DVD-R using my A04. WinXP was able to read the discs no problem, but Win2K (my prefered OS) could not read the disc and I got message "incorrect function" when trying to browse the CD. After some research I found that this was due to the file system as the DMR-E30 used UDF v2.0.1 and Win2K does not support this. I download some Panasonic DVD-RAM device drivers for their LF-Dxxx series of DVD-RAM drives from here and now it works and I can read the E30's DVD-RAM discs with Win2K I did start looking at WriteDVD from Software Architects as this would seem to do the trick, but this was 60 USD! The Toshiba SD-M1712 does what I bought it for, but as a DVD-ROM it does have limitations, such as being RPC2 (although I did find some RPC1 firmware, but haven't used it) and like other Toshiba DVD-ROM's the CSS ripping speed is limited to 2x. Thankfully I have a Lite-on drive as well, so neither of these is a real issue for me. Anyway, hope someone finds this useful. Rob.
