Oh yes, thanks for reminding me. Mine came from Japan. The postmark was Japan, and the letter inside was from JP-Product, which I assume is Japanese.


From the ninth to the twenty-eighth is...

TA DA!


Okay, here is the story so far. Just so I didn't;t seem like a dummy parted from his money, I never stated that I did make a purchase of those DVD -R DL disks from Amazon.com. If the...

If it had started out with short intervals, and the time between dropouts became longer, I could blame the disk with a bad spot that was a line from the center to the edge, as the disk spins faster...

I did too (look back in the thread to make sure you were actually talking about Katie Cassidy). I wrote my reply before I read VisionOn's post with the photographs.

What is really curious about this is that you reported audio glitches, but no corresponding video frame drop-outs. When the title is HS copied from the HDD to the DVD, it's all just digital data,...

Wow! You can say THAT again. I could hardly believe that it was the same actress! Even now, when I see reruns of Supernatural with her, she looks so very much better than she does on Arrow.

I personally have had NOTHING but very bad experiences with these Ritek -R DL disks. A while back I made several of them for my wife from her exercise VHS tapes. They originally worked fine, but...

I have never seen or heard of this happening, and I have made a LOT of disks with my EH59s. I have no idea what it could be.

Did it play it back in PAL, or convert it? I have a JVC DVD player that actually converts the PAL content to NTSC. Who knew? It certainly says nothing about such a capability in the manual. It...

True, it's a VERY niche product. It's like making a product used only by, say, Jewish Eskimos or something. :D :D There is no value in counterfeiting a product with such limited (narrow)...

As I said, I STILL don't understand the +R DL reluctance to make an HS copy. That has NOT been my experience, in that I have made high speed copies using +R DL disks from my EH59.

Kelson,


I have both 2.4x and 8x +R DL discs. They both appear to burn at the same rate, at least I have not seen any obvious difference in the time it takes to make one over the other. The...

I can explain what is going on, sort of. The machine cannot record directly to any DL disk. For some reason, it has decided that it could not high speed copy your title to the DL disk, so in order...

I agree with jjeff. The Panasonic DVD recorders will not do real-time dubbing to DL disks. At least, the EH55, and EH75 won't. I don't actually remember trying to see if the EH59 will. Just a...
