OK, just to give you all some background info in case you aren't familiar with what I'm using...... I've been burning DVD-R's on the computer for some time now, using primarily DVDdecrypter, DVD2one and then RecordNow; or DVDshrink and RecordNow. I've probably backed up 100-150 discs with no serious issues. I've now purchased the Panasonic DMR-E50 stand alone DVD recorder. It works pretty much like a VCR, except it uses DVD's rather than tapes. The two formats it allows me to record to are DVD-R and DVD-RAM. DVD-RAM works very much the same way as DVD-RW in that the disc can be erased and re-recorded to. So far so good, right? Well the one thing I would like to do is take discs I've made in the stand alone recorder, then re-author them on the computer. The only problem is if I use DVD-R discs, I end up wasting a disc. And the DVD-RAM discs aren't read the same way as DVD-R's. Has anybody seen software that allows copying from DVD-RAM to DVD-R? Or point me to a thread in this or another forum? I've done several searches and have come up with nothing. Thanks everybody!
