    Hello,
    I have a Panasonic DVD recorder the refuses to eject a DVD. Can someone
    suggest a replacement repair part for the DVD itself or a repair procedure?
    The model is DMR-E100H.
    Thanks.

    Guess I'm going to wait before buying one of these puppies. Anyone know of a
    good brand of dvd burner? Or is it too soon to tell? I don't mind spending
    the money, I don't want some Funai = SH** mechanism inside a pretty name
    brand case.

    It could be the belt, the motor, or a gear that is damaged. You will have to
    open it up, and take a look at it. You may need the service manual to have
    the parts listing, so you can order parts.

    These machines are usually very reliable. But, if you do a lot of DVD
    burning, the laser will have limited life, as like any DVD or CD burner. If
    your machine is in to the 3rd year, and it has had a lot of use, I would be
    thinking of replacing it.

    ComputerGeeks is offering a recorder (Artec DR-RE12A DVD+RW Recorder & DVD
    Player) for $145 already. How soon will these be not worth repair I wonder?

  5. Hi!
    For "burners" that go inside a computer...

    I've had good luck with both Hitachi/LG DVD+R (DL) drives and NEC ones as
    well. They seem to be excellent DVD as well as CD burners. The only thing I
    don't like is the seeming poor error correction. When using the drives to
    rip CDs even the slightest mark on the disc may upset the drive and produce
    a very audible error.

    Thanks for the thought.
    I am hoping that someone can suggest a drive that will fit into the DVD
    recorder. I would expect that they are similar but different. This one
    will (did) record DVD-R and DVD-Ram.
    Thanks.
