I have made some recordings on this dvd recorder to the hdd, they look great! very big file sizes and highest possible quality setting. I am looking to transfer them off the hdd while preserving the quality as best I can. what is the best way to do this? could I for example create data dvds with those original captured files that are on the hdd? then look for a way to copy them off the dvd and put onto the pc? I looked through the manual but couldn't find what I needed on that.

I was looking to use RW discs as I would be performing this method regularly if I can get great results. any tips on the best re-recordable dvds to use and optimal settings? is there any software which is essential when trying to get the best quality?

IsoBuster can extract the files to your pc.

This was a massive undertaking for him to add these features, and it happened thanks to some forum members here (especially jwillis).

If you used the 15 Mbps recording on the hdd (so higher than dvd quality) then i guess you can use isobuster to recover those files otherwise transfer to dvd is fine

It is also possible to extract the hard disk with various freeware programs.

But nothing is as easy and convenient as using isobuster neither using dvd nor using freeware tools.
Believe me, I've tried all 3 methods.

ISOBuster = Fantastic!

I had (my Dad actually) had a Pioneer DV-645H DVD/hard disk recorder which eventually had all sorts of errors with recordings freezing and being corrupted. We gave up on it a couple of years ago with a few movies still on the HDD. I read this thread and the one on Videohelp, took the lid off the DVR-645, pulled the HDD out, which was IDE, bought a Simplecom IDE to USB adapter and ISOBuster and I got the movies off with a few clicks; the movies on the HDD show up as MPEGs which I just copied off to another drive. Windows would not "see" the drive, except in Disk Management, and the data was inaccessible to Windows.

Buy it!
