I have dvds that have been recorded from a friends panasonic dvd recorder and I have been trying to copy these dvds to my samsung dvd recorder ( hr753), It will play the dvds but will not copy?? can you help please
Its not easy to copy a DVD, unless you have the proper software. Even then there is a lot of trial and error that you have to go thru. My suggestion is to findout whats the recording software that are used by both of the recorders and try to get around them by means of a computer.
Or alternatevly do the recording via a computer.

Did the previous machine show EXACTLY the same problem, or did that machine have another issue?
Regarding this one, does the DVD drive respond well to playback discs, such as commercial release DVDs, or DVDs recorded on other machines? Does it play back CDs OK? If it passes these tests, move on to-
I suggest trying to record on different discs - such as a DVD-RAM, or on a different brand of DVD-R, or DVD-Rs from a different batch to your current ones.
If the machine succeeds here, all good and well, if it fails at this point, it seems the machine is faulty and should be returned.
I have to agree with XELIAM regarding finishing the disk, under the DVD "FUNCTIONS" selection from the remote. I also use the SLYSOFT products to transfer my videos to what ever other mode of video I wish to have, whether iPOD (MP4), or DIVX (AVI) or loads of other options. Slysoft makes a GREAT product
On your machine or on the r/control you should have a copy button,if you press this you should get a menu come up on screen.It should ask you which way you want to copy,so you will go HDD-DVD-R,then press copy again and it should do it automatic,hope this helps.
the manual specifies that if you select for recording the FR mode the machine automatically adjusts the recording mode for the program to fit on a 4.7G dvd. If you use a dvd DL if will auto detect that you have this type of dvd and the FR mode will automatically allow you to make full use of the available space. Depending on the space needed on the dvd the picture quality will be good to excellent (refer in the manual to Recording Modes..)
As mentioned on the Jan12 e-mailed Panasonic - surprise, no response! However on Panasonic's web site drill down to firmware upgrades for DVD machines. There is an upgrade available for the E50P. Straight forward fix, download to computer, expand it and copy to a CD-R. Put CD-R into E50 and recorder will check and update firmware. I did this on the 13th and have recorded two commercial free movies and both have played back perfectly after finalization. Time will tell. Hope this helps. Golferdon
To copy files from the HDD to a DVD disc, insert the DVD then press 'Functions' on the remote. From there select the 'Copy' feature and select the items you want to copy. There is also an 'Advanced Copy' available in the 'To Others' menu.
