Hi. I recorded a documentary from tv on my toshiba DVD recorder which is 48 minutes long. On a different brand of DVD-RW discs which I usually use, I never have a problem playing recordings and finding the files to do ripping and post recording conversion when in my pc liteon DVD writer.
But on this disc which is a maxell DVD-RW, it shows on my desktop as 1.59GB used and 2.64mb free. Don’t understand that as it’s a 4.7gb disc. The problem though is that there is a folder called DVD-RTAV but it’s completely empty. There are also two sysreserved files, a few kbs each. Why can’t I find the video I recorded? There are no iso files, vob files, or anything like that. I checked it in my toshiba and it plays fine so the documentary file is still on the disc. Is there something I can do? Otherwise, I would have to put it back in the toshiba, record it to vhs, then record it back to a different disc which I know would work and that would be long winded and very low quality. I have tried the disc both finalised and unfinalised, doesn’t seem to make a difference. No idea why those files on the screenshot say date modified 2001 either.
