You should be able to transfer personal recordings but not prerecorded movies; console recorders like this don't usually allow recording of copy-protected material. Anyway, so far this model is only released in Japan. The HD is intended to be used for a Japanese internet-based movie download service via ethernet, not for backing up prerecorded movies.
