I have recently purchased a Panasonic DMR-PWTGZ. Freeview, Blu Ray player and Hard Drive recorder with which I am extremely happy. I have recorded some content from TV which I would like to be able to download this over ethernet (cable) to my PC.

I have tried to map the Panasonic drive from my PC but no such device shows on the network (I have PC drives mapped) I understand that the Panasonic drive will be formatted different to Windows.

So is there anyway to connect from the PC to the Panasonic, I am guessing with software?

Thanks    Laughing

Have you tried using DLNA?
Your recorder is a DLNA server, meaning you should be able to see the files via software such as Twonky, then copy it to your PC. I've done it at home on a Macbook, works very well for Freeview content.
