Since this is a Panasonic discussion, anybody got any experiences to
share concerning the Panasonic DMR-E100HGK player/recorder? Since I happen
to commute between Europe and the US a few times a year, this gadget seems
to be what I am looking for.

Wait a minute. What exactly has failed, the DVD drive or
the hard drive? From the Vubast's posts, it isn't clear
that his unit even had a hard drive.
