I have located a machine that will do precisely what you describe. The Samsung DVD-TR520 Dual Tray Recorder/Copier can record on one DVD while playing another DVD in its other tray. "Having a dual-deck unit doesn't mean that you can copy any discs without limitation. The manual details what you can and can't do. For instance, you can't copy a full DVD-RAM disc to a DVD-R disc, since DVD-R media can't hold as much data as DVD-RAM discs can. You also have to be careful to convert discs to compatible formats. The recorder won't copy double-layer discs, and of course it won't duplicate copy protected discs. But you can record on one deck while simultaneously playing back another video on the other."

Hi gfraz, After several hours research, I was able to find the first ever Dual DVD Player Recorder. Unfortunately, I have not been able to locate any where this device is available. Samsung SV-TR5550 Dual DVD player "Samsung Korea has launched the SV-TR5550 a dual deck DVD burner/player. The player supports DVD-R/RW and RAM and will be compatible with Divx and MP3 formats. DVD can be played on one drive and record on the other drive at the same time. It also a IEEE-1394 slot (Firewire) for connecting a digital video camera for direct recording." http://www.newlaunches.com/archives/samsung_sv-tr5550_dual_dvd_player.php "Samsung Electronics has come out with the first ever Twintray DVD recorder. The SV-TR5550 is a combination of DVD player and DVD recorder, the movie studios will have a heart attack once they see this. It?s capable of playing any DVD, MP3, DivX and is also equipped with a DVD recorder to record on DVD-R, DVD-RW and DVD-RAM formats. It will be able to make a direct duplication of various DVD formats from the original disc by just pushing one button. When you make a disc copy, it retains the high quality picture and sound just like the original disc, it will copy a 2 hour film from DVD in 20 minutes. You can also connect a camcorder directly to stream and record to DVD disc through a DV input terminal (IEEE1394) located in the front." No price or North American availability was announced. http://www.mobilemag.com/content/100/313/C4804/# I also searched the Samsung website. Although the device is not available there, a downloadable manual in Korean is. I wish I could have been of more help. Best of luck, Rainbow
