    My question is about VRD-MC5 DVDirect from Sony.

    I am copying video from my Sony DCR-TRV38 mini-DV camcorder using the
    i-Link cable.

    All my tapes have data code with date/time embedded in it.

    Is it possible for me to transfer the data code to the DVD when I use
    the VRD-MC5 to burn the DVD's with DCR-TRV38 as a source?

    I'd like to be able to press Display on my DVD player when playing these
    discs (created by VRD-MC5) and see the date/time in the data code that
    was on my tape.

    How do I do that?

    PS: Now, I have manyally annotate each disk label by hand with the date
    etc. Not an ideal scenario

    The latest Ulead Studio v11 was advertised as being able to make
    removable subtitles using the date/time code. I downloaded a trial
    version, but could not get it to work. For some reason, I could never
    get registered on their forum so I was not able to ask for help. This
    was 6 months ago or more. Maybe they have it working now.

    Yeah, but that involves capturing the DV stream, editing it, and then
    burning it on the PC. I bought the VRD-MC5 to avoid all that hassle, as
    I am generally interested in full copy of my DV tapes to DVD+R media.
    VRD-MC5 lets me do that without any PC.

    My guess is that what I am asking for is not do-able. Sony has probably
    not implemented it in the firmware of the burner. Still, no harm asking ..
