By default, the DVD-RW disc format is Video

Video format, if required. (Reinitializing the disc will
erase the contents of the disc.)
The recording mode is closely related to the disc
format. If the disc format is Video Recording format,
then the recording mode is VR mode; if the disc
format is Video mode, then the recording mode is
Video mode (except for DVD-Video, which is not
recordable, and so does not have a recording mode).
Within the recording modes (which are fixed for them

compression. This means that the exact recording
time will depend on the material being recorded.
When recording a TV broadcast, if the reception is
poor or the picture contains interference, the
recording times may be shorter.
If you record still pictures or audio only, the
recording time may be longer.
The displayed times for recording and time
remaining may not always add up to exactly the
length of the disc.
The recording time available may decrease if you
heavily edit a disc.
If using a DVD-RW disc, make sure you change the
recording format (Video mode or VR mode) before
you record anything on the disc. See page 24 (Disc
Format) for how to do this.
When using a DVD-R or DVD+R disc, you can keep
recording until the disc is full, or until you finalize the
disc. Before you start a recording session, check
the amount of recording time left on the disc.
When using a DVD-RW disc in Video mode,

When
using a DVD+R/RW, the recorder will execute
the Menu-making operation to update the new title

Copying between DVD and HDD is a completely
digital process and therefore involves no loss of
quality in the audio or video. This means that you can
transfer back and forth without having to worry about
the quality getting worse with each copy 'generation'.
It also means that copying can be carried out at the
maximum speed possible.
When copying from HDD to DVD, the speed of
copying depends on the recording mode and the kind
of DVD disc you're using.
