Is this possible on my DVD/HD recorder...

Hey all

I have a Sony DVD/HD recorder and I want to transfer some files onto my Laptop. When I plug in the USB the laptop isn't recognising it. Can't see anything about this in the book. Does anyone have any ideas? I ultimately want to save the stuff from my DVD/HD onto my new Iomega Screenplay.

Cheers all

Foxy

Im no expert on this but I would believe you would need a normal PC with a graphics card with the correct inputs for this and the correct software.

It looks so simple! USB port ont he front of the DVD/HDD, USB on the laptop. I thought just connect the DVD to the Laptop, wait for the laptop to find it and show whats on the DVD and then just copy.

Lifes never that simple though! lol

I would recommend using a program called "DVD Shrink" to make what is called an "iso" file and then using a program called "VLC Player" (both free programs by the way) to view it. If all goes well, the file will run exactly like a DVD would.

Maybe get the disc that came with it and install it then connect usb cable to Sony.(was assuming this is camcorder )

Which model number ?

Reading again more than likely a pvr type thing

It's an Sony RDR-DC205

The usb on that is for storage and to play files from. Not a host on intially looking at specs etc.

I would recommend reading the thread and not posting about something completely unrelated.


alright fag calm down. just assumed he was trying to get a dvd playing back and trying to be helpful. Sorry that helping people is such a sin on this site as opposed to mocking people for one tiny mistake and being such a goon about it.

just chill :p

Thanks for that. I am interested in seeing if it's possible to transfer the programmes I have saved onto the media player. If it's going to be a big problem, I think i'll leave it lol

I have a DVD/HDD recorder ,but the inputs on the front are for INPUT , not OUTPUT . Why dont you do what I do . Copy/dub/transfer the HDD data to DVD [disk] then rip the disk using the free software on your laptop .you end up with a folder on your laptop drive with files in it ............ifo, bup,vobs .Any DVD playing software will play them , I use POWER DVD or as suggested .......VLC will play them too.

Yeah, I was thinking of doing that actually. Just seems like a roundabout way of going about things!

The only other way is to use a capture device , link from the DVD/HDD player by scart/phono to a capture device ...................the EasyCap device comes to mind but I think folk have sync problems with them . I have one but dont use it to capture , it allows me to watch in real time CCTV cameras etc . But ,If you playback your footage and allow the device to capture it on your laptop. For this I use a capture device called the Open Xrecorder , fantastic devices . You can plug in anything you want ......................composite , Arial co-ax , Firewire etc and the device captures it and pushes it through a USB2 port on a laptop or PC using its own software. Quality is excellent too .It may be another long way of doing it ,but you now have a few options

I'd still try plug the HDD into a PC, much quicker than converting to disk and then converting it back again after.


The *.rec files will still need converting though if the hdd is even recognised at all in by the pc.

Also remember they might not want to void any warranty.

Other than changing the headers in .rec the recognition of the hdd is still vital.
