I've done this dozens of times before? With other recorders of coarse.I don't know if the trouble is with the recorder or NVE. Originally I used to own an inexpensive ILO brand recorder. I had no trouble creating homemade discs of my favorite TV shows using NVE to edit out the commercials. Still, I decided to upgrade to a 3 in 1 recorder. The only trouble I had with editing was to remove commercials from 1G gloms instead of 200-300MB gloms because the ILO separated the titles for me whereas the new 3 in 1 packed them all together. I got around this by using nero recode which broke the gloms down into their separate titles, I also noticed that when I used DVD+RW discs, I wasn't able to import titles until I closed the disc. However, once again I traded up for a more expensive 3 in 1 recorder. There is no end to my trouble now. It says I do not need to close DVD+RW discs, hence I can't edit with NVE. I switched to DVD+R discs which I could and did close but I am still unable to import anything into NVE for editing purposes. All I can do is use Nero Recode to clumsily edit out commercials and make homemade discs without menues. Surely NVE is able to edit homemade discs of any kind, unless recorders now come with their own form of copy protection that I am not aware of.
