I recently got a DVD burner so I could copy my TV recordings to DVD-R. This has worked well so far. However, one DVD-RAM that I dubbed off can no longer be used in my Panasonic DMR-E65 recorder. When I put it in, the recorder goes into a shutdown-restart loop. After about 4 or 5 times, I can coax it into letting me have the disk back. All I did to the DVD-RAM was copy the .VROs off it using TMPGEnc.
I’m hesitant to try another DVD-RAM in my PC in case it goes pear-shaped as well. And at NZ$10 per disk I don’t want to try yet.
If I do a full format of the DVD-RAM in my PC using UDF2.0 will the recorder then recognise it as blank and offer to format it?
