Should I upgrade to Windows 10? 8 reasons why you should upgrade to Windows 10... and 2 why you…
I own a a Sony HD HDD/DVD Recorder standalone connected to my Sony Bravia TV.
What I need to do is burn a couple of my films and drama series to DVD Disk for later watching as I am running out of HDD space.
I understand that they call this Dubbing.
I tried this to a Verbatim DVD-R disk and I got the message unable to ... something relating to the DVD-R disk not being ready.
Do I have to do something to this disk before Dubbing to it. If you require the full message i will try again later and post back
Thanks for any forum group who can help.
Hello Lazurus The 2nd !
Thanks for calling in!
My Sony DVD Recorder is a HXD995 Model. My User Manual supplied with it covers 8 of them in a range from the 790 - 1095 models.
Hope you can help me, as I need to get some DVDs burnt to free up some HDD space.
Hello all Just wondering if 'Lazarus The 2nd' is arround tonight ? to help Thanks
Hi Steven, Still here, Just a bit busy at home.
(1) Do I have to do something to this disk before Dubbing to it:
From what I have read, The DVD's (R - & +, RW - & +, Single and Dual Layer) need to be Formatted, although the User Guide says that DVD-Rs are Formatted automatically.
Have you got a DVD+RW or a DVD-R to practice with?.
(2) I tried this to a Verbatim DVD-R disk and I got the message unable to ... something relating to the DVD-R disk not being ready.:
any chance of getting the full message. (it could refer to the DVD not being Formatted).
What are the lengths and Recording Modes (if different), ie. EP, SP, LP , HQ.
Are they (the Recordings) a mixture of 4.3 and 16.9 screen format.
Can you try a different Brand of DVD, as i seem to remember somebody else having a problem with Verbatim DVDs, Like Tesco, Sony, Imation or Memorex (these are the Four Brands I mainly use with no problems..
Hello Lazarus The 2nd (David)

Will post back with more info Friday or Sat

Morning David & The PCA Forum
I notice it states in the Manual on page 93 "You can Dub all of the Contents on a Finalised etc
It seems to refer to the different types of the DVD disks like -RW, -R etc but for DVD-R in brackets it states (video Mode)
Lower down in this paragraph it then stated HDD to DVD-R
I will go to the Tesco Extra today and pick up a selection of other branded DVD's like you mention and also a RW format.
Thank You again and speak later when you free
That section on page 93 is for
Making a Backup Disc (DVD Backup)
Is for Copying a DVD, 1st to the Hard Disc Drive (HDD), Then 2nd from HDD to a New Blank DVD.
The pages you require are, Page 89
Dubbing (HDD <--> DVD) Before Dubbing
then pages 90 - 92 HDD/DVD Dubbing & Dubbing Using Dubbing List.
Thanks David !
I got some Tesco DVD-RW Disks today but not tried them due to being busy with work all day.
So, I have been reading the wrong section missunderstanding what i need to do.
I will try this tomorrow evening and select HDD<-->DVD ! Will post later Friday evening to let you know what happens. If not sucessfull with Verbatim then I will open the Tesco Disks
How long does Dubbing of a say 1 1/2Hr programme take roughly. Does it have to Dub to the DVD from the HDD as the same speed like when watching it on TV ?
Thanks for the help and pointers and will post back Friday night
Cheers & Thank You
All Four (3 Panasonics & 1 Toshiba) of mine take about 20-24 Minutes for a full DVD (2 video Hours).
so that would be about 5 - 6 Minutes for 1x Half Hour programme.
Finally got Sunday free ! so plan on trying the above out.
i understand there is LP, SP modes am i right in saying when recording from TV to HDD in SP Mode the picture is compressed and not as good as when in LP. Which I think LP is also the default.
Will sit down and try dubbing HDD <> DVD then HDD-DVD -RW
