In Reply to: dvd recorder by carolpeters
I get that piracy is rampant and needs to be prevented. However, that small part of what DVRs are used for should not over ride what if is used for. I had a lot of home movies, grand baby videos, that came up lost because I accidentally reformatted the hard drive instead of the DVD-RW disc I had intended to reformat. It just disgusts me that the industry as a whole would intentionally go out of their way to set it up so that any thing that I record needs to be protected from me!!
If you think there needs to be protection from me, then add a stinking routine to the delete function so that when I select "Delete" on the remote and the selected drive is the hard drive, then prompt me with "Hey Stupid, do you REALLY want to delete your HARD DRIVE"? If I had gotten that response, I probably would have caught it that I was about to delete from the hard drive and not the disk.
Yes, I am fuming because I have just wiped everything off the DVR including home movies that are lost forever.
It was a Panasonic DMR-EH50. The 100GB disk keeps showing up as a zero filled 2TB drive (no partition, nothing).
