Need a Panasonic DVD recorder with pass-thru TBC.

I'm in USA so it needs to be NTSC.

Have you tried WinDV instead? I find both software to be finicky, so I think there are issues with DV itself, but in my experience WinDV has been more reliable overall.

Alternative to chamois swabs to clean VCRs?

Windows often corrupts the MBR. Use gparted Live to check / repair it.

If that doesn't work, use TestDisk.

Worst case scenario, Photorec.
