Question about Polaroid DRM-2001G DVD Recorder/HDD Recorder

1 Answer

Recording from the hard drive

How do you record over two hrs from the hard drive to a blank dvd? I'm no computer whiz and Polaroid's help line is no help. I set the speed properly and when I try to add the program, it says not enough space on the disk. I can only find disks which say 120 minute max. What am I doing wrong?

You have to choos the sp mode which is over 2 hours in recording. i noticed that after you set it in sp mode and you press the record button on the recorder panel more than once, the recording time changes.

Can anyone with a RH1777 help me finalise my dvd blank disk with his/her recorder?


If you can't find someone with the same recorder you could try putting the DVD into a computer DVD drive. It might be possible to get the video files off the DVD. DVD files are called VOB. You can get free software that will play them. It might even rip the files from the disc for you. You can then transfer them to a DVD disc using the computer.

Is it possible to copy all the files from my dvd recorder to removable media such as dvd's or a portable hard drive? i would like to back up all the family albums etc


If you have a computer with a dvd writer, there is no need to use an external DVD recorder to copy discs. The DVD software on your computer will have a way to temporarily record a disc to hard drive then allow you to insert a blank disc for recording.
A consumer DVD recorder will not have this capability. There is usually no way to output digital files; the machines are intended for playback to a TV.

Polaroid dra-01601a hdd to dvd recording


You will have to split the title and record on more than one DVD. The default speed is SP, that is 2 hours of recording. If you want to record longer programs, go into setup and change the default record speed to one of the other settings, for example: SP+ which is 2 1/2 hours or one of the other longer record settings. This DVD burner will only record at the same speed as you recorded to the hard drive. You can also edit out the commercials by using segment. Go to the title you want, press the right arrow, scroll down and select segment. When you want to start your edit, press enter. when you want to stop the edit, press enter again. You can use your right arrow to skip forward 30 seconds and your left arrow to skip back 10 seconds if you went too far when editing. You will see where your edits are on the screen by the darker color. Do this through the whole program. When you record to DVD, the commercials will not be recorded. Hope this helps you.

AFTER 6 HRS RECORDING MESSAGE DISPLAYS NO MORE SPACE LEFT


It is true that the manual says it can record 100 or more hours...but that is at the lowest resolution. You can go to the menu screen and from there go to the recording properties and play around with different recording resolutions that best fit your recording needs. Also, the DVR uses a Hard Drive just as any computer does and within' time it becomes fragmented... that may cause it to record less hours even if you delete recordings. You can format the internal hard drive by going to the main menu screen and press and hold (for about 10 seconds) the OPEN and PLAY buttons on the unit (not the remote). At this time you should see the words FORMAT on the LCD screen and the unit will shut off. Keep in mind that formatting will erase everything on the hard drive so make sure you back up to DVD whatever you want to keep. Hope this helps.

Polaroid Will NOT edit out Commercials!


You need to post edit the recording;
First unprotect then do a split before the commercial
than split after, then recombine the parts without the ad.
Cumbersome, but it works

I think the DVD player /recorder unit in this model is suspect. I have had this problem as well as many others and I think that it judy does not like certain brands of DVD's I might buy 100 or 200 blanks only to find that after 50 or so I start having a lot of record failures. Most of the time when I change brands the problem goes away for a while. It is as if the machine gets tired of one flavor and wants a change. I have found more trouble with -R's than +R's.

The Panasonics are very picky about the media ie brand and quality of the DVD blank. Try a different brand and see if that helps.
