I have lots of programmes on the hard drive of my DMR-EH60, both recorded from live TV or from old video tapes.
I want to back these up so they'll hopefully never be lost, and store them on my PC.
How do I do this? I would want these files to be in an easily watcheable format (.mpg?, .mov? etc) from my PC. I would also want these to be easily get-at-able from any future media centre setup I might arrange.
Any advice would be gratefully received.

Burn them to as many DVDs as is necessary, or use DVD RWs (at least two) to transfer the contents to your HDD. Use VOB2MPG to create MPG files on your HDD - you can load the VOBs directly from the RW to save you from having to copy them first.Read my blog here.
