    A DVD-Ram problem

    Hello forum,
    I have recently bought the Panasonic VDR-D150. I recorded some videos on a DVD-Ram, but when I cam to watch it, one side of the DVD was readable, but the other side, for some reason, could not be read by any DVD player I own. It's like the DVD rom doesn't recognize the DVD-Ram. Nethertheless, the video camera itself does recognize the DVD-Ram, including all the videos that I recorded. I can watch them on my video camera, but not anyplace else!
    What can I do to fix this? What could be the problem?

    Thank you very much.

    I'm no expert on DVD-RAM and I stand to be corrected but this is what I believe to be the case...

    Your camera does record and playback DVD-RAM but that doesn't mean a DVD player will be able to. DVD players are all different but I don't think they will be able to play your DVD-RAM disks.

    The way I see it you have two choices:
    (1) Use DVD+R or DVD-R instead of DVD-RAM to record with.
    (2) Transfer your DVD-RAM footage to a computer, edit and create a DVD+R or DVD-R disk to play in standard DVD players.
