    I have a Panasonic DVD recorder and also a PC with a drive that supports DVD-RAM. I regularly transfer video from the DVD recorder to the PC. This is easy because when I put the DVD-RAM disk into the PC the files can be read with Windows Explorer with no problems.

    What I'd also like to be able to do however is to transfer data the other way. So I'd like to be able to burn a video file onto the DVD-RAM disk on the PC and have it readable by the DVD recorder. I haven't so far been able to achieve this. The DVD drive on the PC came with Nero software for burning video, and I can use that to write data to the disk, but I have been unable to find a way to write the disk in a way that the DVD recorder can read. All methods I have tried so far just show the disk as unreadable when I put it into the DVD recorder.

    Has anyone got any suggestions?

    I'd forget about the RAM media for that.

    I'd use -RW media - burn it just like a regular DVD

    I know it sounds ridiculous but the Pan doesn't work with RW. I realised this might be a problem when I bought it but it had a 400GB HDD which at the time was easily the biggest available so it was a choice and I came down on the side of the bigger HDD.

  4. Sadly, it can't be done -I tried to find a way a couple of years ago, and we discussed it here at the time. Not possible I'm afraid
