    I bought the Panasonic DMR-e50 last spring. I now make extra money converting VHS tapes to DVD for people. (Wedding videos, etc.) It does the job well, and because it runs the analogue input through a digital comb filter, it does clean up the image a little bit too.

    My biggest issue with it is the recorder decided it has to put a real ugly menu at the begining of the disc, so I have to run it through my computer using DVD2one to get rid of it. So each time I waste a disc.

    It uses DVD-RAM as a re-recordable media; which is useless in most other machines.

    thanks for the reply. BUT, i have a new problem. i have a Pioneer DVDRW DVR-104 burner, and never had any problems with it so far. i just got a panasonic DMR E50 DVD recorder, to transfer my VHS tapes to DVD, then put them on my PC to edit and add menus. the transfer worked great, but my burner isn't able to read the DVD i made in the recorder. is there anyone that can help me with this?

    Are you making sure you finalizing the disc on the DMR-e50 before ejecting it?
