    I have searched on the forum, honest I have, but I can't quite grasp this.

    I am going to be using DVD-X Copy to copy my DVD-Video's on my PC (legitimate back-up purpose only of course). I will want to play these back on my DMR-HS2, so provided I go for reasonable quality manufacturer (i.e Verbatim, Maxell etc) and use DVD-R media is there anything else I need to consider ? Does it matter whether I burn at 2x or 4x ?

    Many thanks

    No there is nothing else you need to consider. You don't necessarily have to have the "best" dvd-r media (whatever that is) each machine is different, this is where you need to experiment, although, the only problem I have had on my PC burner (Pioneer 106) is with the 1x Maxell DVD-RW which it just wont write to, all other media I have tried has worked fine. (Datawrite, Mirrior) Burning at the highest speed should be fine, if you encounter a problem (skipping etc) only then try burning at a lower speed before writing off the media.
    Regards

    pd45.

    Many thanks. I'll do as you suggest then and try out a few different makes of DVD-R. Ideally a not to expensive make that I can use for dubbing on the HS2 for kids etc and also that I can use to back-up my DVD's on the PC.

    Cheers

    I would stick to 2x recording. 4x speed can make the video skip and stutter (depending on the disc).

    Thanks NWgarrat,

    Speed is not really an issue for me so if I get problems on x4 then i'll settle for x2. Cheers.
