    DVD recorders

    Can anyone help? If you record using a stand alone dvd recorder what file format is used. I am thinking of getting a recorder and would like to be able to rip the recordings onto my pc to edit if required.

    thanks

    Mmmm so you would like to move files to your pc from a DVD, if your pc has a DVD player? you can do that anyway..?

    If you want a Wrter, wouldnt you be far better off to get an internal PC DVD writer for your pc if you require a writer... they are very cheap now...

    having a standalone DVD writer will give you no more options than a Stand alone player when it comes to reading files... again an internal PC DVD player will give you far more options to twiddle with...

    Besides that, Standalone DVD Writers will give you problems when it comes to playing with copywritten material...

    I'd like to record TV programmes then make compilation dvd's. Got a 2 year old in the house who loves various programmes that arent on video or dvd to buy. Have recorded onto VHS but quality is obviously poor. I would like to record off the TV, rip to PC then burn to dvd.

    I've been researching formats and it looks like dvd recorders use mpeg2 so should be OK to rip onto PC and then convert to VOB's

    You could simply add a 'analogue TV/radio Card' to your pc, they are cheap too...
    I think it would make your task much easier too...

    You could even get the 'digital TV card' instead for all those channels on Freeview?
