[QUOTE=jaijef72;2509689]Thanks everyone for the replies.
They were a big help.
I am now considering switching out the DVD drive with one from a computer DVD writing drive.
Is this feasible or should I just use the panasonic’s VCR until i can get another DVDR/HDD device.
Are LiteOn drives compatible?
I have several un finalized DVDRs and was wondering how to finalize them without buying a panasonic ?
Or should I buy a panasonic with a HDD?
Thanks to all again for their assistance, especially DIGA DO.
The 2007 DMR-EZ47 uses the proprietary VXY1961 DVD Drive, not a PC type DVD Drive.

This post has photos of the VXY1961 DVD Drive:
The Panasonic National Parts Center in Kent WA currently prices the VXY1961 DVD Drive at $135.21, plus shipping.
Don’t waste your time or money on a 2007 DMR-EZ47 combo recorder.
Your money is better spent on the outstanding Magnavox 2160 HDD/DVD Recorder.
