Specs: xp, 3.8 512
Hi, i have a panasonic dvd/video 250gb hd
i havent had it long, i have been testing it
(and myself) but having a bit off difficulty
transferring DVD content to the harddrive (i have been able to transfer HDD content to a dvd)when i try to transfer to the HD it keeps telling me to insert a valid disc to the source drive (there is a disc in thr drive)
(i know the disc would be compatible) on the tv screen
DESTINATION HDD but it it keeps telling me to insert a valid disc to the destination drive
i know its probably something simple! but its finding it!! Also i havent been able to copy my 8mm tapes yet. I have invested in this machine to catch up on a lot of transferring!
I would gladly appreciate replies thankyou.
Regards Jenny

I'm not sure that I understand what you are trying to do, gentlydoesit. But it sounds to me like you are trying to do a 'disc copy' from a DVD drive to a hard disk, and that will not work.

If you want to copy the contents of a DVD to a hard drive, you should create a new folder on the hard drive and then use My Computer to copy the contents of the DVD to it.

I'm afraid that doesn't completely clear things up, gentlydoesit.

I don't understand
"Panasonic dvd player/recorder, with harddrive"

Is it a combination DVD drive and hard drive? I have never heard of such a thing.
What is the model number?
Is it a standalone unit not connected to the PC?

(edit) I think I finally understand, gentlydoesit.

I think your best chance of getting help is by going to Panasonic tech support for that unit. I think the chances of finding someone with experience on that box here is pretty small.

These HD recorders have been around for some time. I have a similar problem with a Panasonic DMR EX-77. I have been unable to successfully make a playable dvd after trying with several different pieces of software.
