I have had a lite on 5045 for about 3 yrs now. The DVD Drive failed to read blank media after the warranty ran out but has still read commercial media until recently.
Firstly I am currently looking for a new DVD recorder with hard drive but am cautious about doing so… after previous experience.
Any suggestions about reliable and decent models upto Â£250 in price.
Secondly I have alot of music videos I have recorded of the TV on the Hard Drive but cannot take it off onto disk as it is unusable. I used to use magicdvdripper to convert it to DivX format so I could store on my computer to watch at my hearts delight.
Is there an easy way removing the drive and using an external hard drive reader, plugging the hard drive into the computer and running it through similar software to achieve the same affect?? I am not very technical more a trial and error sort of guy so simple steps would help.
If anyone could help I would greatly appreciate it.
