Default Dvd Out On Panasonic Dmr-e100h

sponsored links

I have a DMR-E100H Panasonic DVD recorder with an 80gb hard disc fitted. Is there any way I can get DV quality footage out on to a PC for editing. I wish to use the machine to record an amateur theatre production using a mini dv camcorder plugged into it. Any help greatly appreciated.

dv cam output to pc via firewire or usb2, no need for e100 for that.

I get the impression he wants to record directly to the DMR e100 whilst actually "on location" and then transfer to computer later. Am I correct Mr Smith?

If this is the case you may do well to invest in a DVD-Ram drive for your computer. The LG 4040's are about 90 GBP.

Yes, that's what I want to do. Are you saying that if I record onto the RAM disc, I can then transfer from the RAM disc onto my computer hard drive and edit? Will the footage be transfered as an AVI file? I already have two LG4040's in my computer. I'll give that a try then and see what happens. Cheers for your help.

Have just tried - couldn't transfer from a DVRam disc, but transferred from a DVD- disc, cannot now access the footage to edit. Any ideas why? It can't have been transferred in AVI format otherwise I would be able to open it in Pinnacle Studio DV.

For a computer to read a DVRam disc it needs a DVRam drive & then you have to get a program that can read DVRam. Some people just rename it's files *.mpg .....

I don't know why your computer can't recognize your disk. It makes more sense to me to just capture with a camcorder then put on the Panasonic as a dvd-r then edit that dvd-r.
