    I have got a Toshiba RD-XS32 and I am very happy with it - would definatly recommend :thumbsup:

    I have got a slight query with regards to the Rate Conversion on it though. I have recorded a film that is 2hrs 44mins long @ a rate of 4.4. I realise that this won't fit on 1 DVD-R as it is too large so I want to rate convert it. So, I have selected a low bit rate of 3.6 (I think) and this should be able to have 2hrs 50mins+ written to a single DVD-R.

    The problem is that when I go to Rate Conversion and select source --> DVD there is a big 'X' showing that it won't fit onto the destination.

    Any ideas as I think it should work.

    Thanks.

    Pete.

    As you select the HDD to DVD for the rate conversion, press the Quick Menu button and choose "Auto Rate Selection" - it will choose the highest possible bitrate for the file and ensure it fits on one DVD. No guarantee on the quality though. There has to be a blank DVD in the drive for this to work (The 'X' will change to an 'O' under 'Result').
