backup hmc
« on: May 14, 2009, 12:38:46 PM »
Hello,
I try to make a backup by: HMC managment/Backup HMC Data/Backup to DVD on local system/OK/ then I get the error HSCP0002 Ensure the media is inserted correctly into the drive and try the operation again.
But... the media is inserted. I do not know how to insert it in a different way...?
Also format will not work. then I get the message ACT0001B DVD-Ram not ready. DVD not properly inserted.

Can anybody help me?

Thanks,
Regards,
Gerard Val

Is it the right kind of DVD-RAM - there are cartridge contained single and double-sided disks, then loose single sided ones.
Assuming your drive can handle your kind of DVD-RAM, I think there was once a restriction on it having to be the IBM cartridge
type for some machines once upon a time.

I was thinking about the same thing. Nowadays you have 16x speed discs. I found an disk that is used with this system that is 3x speed. But where can I find those 'old' disks??

There should be no compatibility issues with the speed times rating of any DVD-RAM media with any drive:
- you can certainly put faster rated disks in older drives,
- a slower disk in a faster drive is supposed to be handled by the drive buffering.

I have one of those hard-disk DVD-RAM PVR television recorders from Panasonic,
which uses the same DVD-RAM disks in or out of cartridges.  I get my media,
genuine Panasonic DVD-RAM disks, on Amazon or eBay ::)

There are some possible format issues if you use a DVD-RAM disk in a computer
- my various laptops and PCs all have "multi-burner" type drives - and then
using the disk in the video recorder, but taking the re-format option before use
in whatever device always works for me. 

DVD-RAM is great, one of the best DVD formats in my view
- just such a shame there are so many to choose from.
You can even get mini-single-size DVD-RAM disks for camcorders etc
- I collect them all ;D
