I work for a small University and we end up recording lots of presentations on either VHS or direct to DVD via a mini-dv camcorder. We've been playing with the idea of purchasing some DVD recorders with built in hard drives with the idea of recording directly to the drive and then only burning what is needed. Can anyone tell me how "editable" the content is on a DVD hard drive? I'm not talking about dropping the content to an editing software, but can a person cut out sections and rough link clips together before burning to the DVD? Thanks for the help.
