Hi George, welcome and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am glad to assist you today.

I am very sorry about your issues. Can you please describe to me your problem a little further? What recordings are you referring to? Are these audio or video recordings?

Please let me know by replying to me here so that I can help you further.

Best regards,

video recordings
Expert:  jessmagz replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for writing back with that information. And where are these recordings stored? Are they stored directly in your computer drive? Or in a digital camera and you want to transfer them to the computer?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
stored on Panasonic DVD recorder DMR-EX97

And you connect this DVD recorder to your PC using a USB cable?

Can I remotely access your computer so that I can directly check the recording storage and fix the issues while you watch?

Remote access (Secure Remote Assistance) is an optional additional service offer with a minimal one-time flat fee regardless of how long it will take me to fix the problem. We can resume any time without additional cost. It is safe as you will be watching your screen and we can chat right there, and it will be a faster mode of help.
Please let me know if you want this remote option.
Best regards,

The recorder is connected to the TV nowhere near the computer

So you are trying to play the stored recordings on a TV and not on a PC?
