Hi I have a Panasonic DMR-EX77EB DVD recorder/player. I

Resolved Question:

Hi

I have a Panasonic DMR-EX77EB DVD recorder/player. I also have a Canon camcorder producing MP4 video. I've put the MP4 videos onto disk through my PC but can't get it to play on the Panasonic. I gather that I may need some conversion software. Is that the case and if so then how can I tell what file type to convert the MP4s to when using the conversion software? Thanks.

Hi Denis,

I am Pete, and I'll be happy to assist with your question.

You will need to convert the .MP4 videos to .AVI before they can be played on the DMR-EX77EB.

To do this, you can use most free video format converters, e.g. Prism:

Hi Pete


 


Thanks for that. What disk to you advise to copy to (eg DVD-RW) and do I need to format that on the Panasonic first. Will it then work OK on the PC for copying?


 


Regards

Hi Denis,
The manual indicates that only DVD-R or DVR-R DL are compatible.
You don't need to format the disk on the Panasonic first.
You can use it straight away on the PC for copying.
