You don't state the manufacturer or model number in your question, thus we cannot answer. I will say that many do, but there is a caveat. If the the VHS tape is a commercially made movie, chances are it has copy protection on it. Most machines will sense this copy protection and will refuse to copy the protected VHS tape to DVD. This was done to prevent piracy. Home recorded tapes and non-protected tapes will usually work ok. Do not confuse write protection with copy protection however. Write protection is merely the tab on the tape that prevents re-recording of the tape. Copy protection is recorded right onto the tape itself and is read by the machine during playback.
I have found a turntable called ION PROFILE Pro It connects to your USB connection and can rip your records or tapes to MP3 songs. It have an input for cassette tapes or 8 track tapes it also alows you to store them then in digital format. t can connec to 8 tracks cassentt tspes and has a plug in to plug into your sterero system and can paly records as well. You can connect it to your stero system and if yo have a mp3 device for your video recored you can recod music here as it has a volumr control as well. It uses software called aduacity that converts vinal taoe ti mp3's and ajudio converter that allows you to burn music in standard music format. This is an inexpensive set up and costs $79.00
Is the VHS tape you are trying to record a commercial VHS tape (movie)? If so, it may have copy protection on it. The recorder is probably programmed to prevent you from making and using DVDs of commercial copy-protected VHS tapes.
You're kind of light on details of the equipment you're going to use - so the best I can do is provide generic instructions. You'll need two devices - one must be able to perform playback for source media and the other for recording or copying duties. Inspect the jacks provided on the rear of both units. Most provide standard RCA type "Phono" jacks for left and right audio channels. Connect a stereo patch cable (with plugs that match the jacks of the playback and recording devices) between the left and right OUTPUT (or "PLAY") jacks on the source device and the left and right INPUT (or "RECORD") jacks on the recording device. Insert the source tape, cd, album, etc. in the device that will playback the original and insert a high quality blank media into the device that will provide recording capabilities. Begin playing the source. Set options such as tape bias, Dolby Noise Reduction, etc. on both source and recording devices to match media in each. Advance the playback source to a point that contain the loudest sections. Set recoding levels by monitoring the VU meters on the recoding device and vary the input adjustment levels so that only the loudest prortions of the program just begin to briefly "flirt" with the 0Db or red zone of the meter. Signals that cause the meter to indicate into this area and beyond begin to overload the amount of information that can be recorded on the blank media and often result in muddy audio quality during playback, later. You should also record the same section repeatedly with differnt options (bias, noise reduction, etc.) to actually hear the difference to determine which sounds best to you. Once levels are set, queue the playback device and start recording. In the case of tape, allow enough recording time to let the leader section of the tape to pass beyond the recording heads for several seconds or more. Once the desired amount of silence has elapsed, play the source program. Allow it to run to completion using both sides in the case of tape and then playback the entire new recording to make sure it recorded without any issues.
Ok, try this, works for me: - Remove the batteries- Insert its again- Connect the recorder via usb to pc- Copy one by one each archive you need to recover, after copy delete them from the recorder- Copy SYSTEM, RECORDER AND MANUALS FOLDER to pc- Format from the pc the recorder (i use a mac - disk utility) yes it is, ERASE!- Copy again the folders: SYSTEM-RECORDER-MANUALS- Unplug the recorder, remove the batteries, insert again- Turn on the recorder, it will display a different error, format the recoder, it will restore and reset the systems files.- It works for me!-
