    In addition to not being able to record any tv programs because of the Cannot Record Copy Protected movie I also get a message: Cannot record copy-protected tapes when I'm trying to copy a VHS tape to DVD.

    Yes, I have the same problem. The unit was fine for a couple of months but now I try to record a broadcast or cable channel onto videocassette or DVD and get the same message.



    When the problem first started, I could reboot the unit and cable (Optimum) and it would work, but only if I continued recording on the same disk. That quick fix no longer works either.

    I have the same exact problem...reboot no longer corrects the issue

    I have the same problem, can't record copyrighted movie, but it is just a tv broadcast, soap opera and a weekly nbc show, neither works...and the one time it did work the audio track didn't match the video track. I'm currently using dvd-r discs...any suggestions? Oh, and I couldn't find the update firmware section on samsung.com.

I have the Samsung dvd-vr 357. I have had a couple problems with it but I called samsung and they walked me through fixing it each time. I don't know if you have tried this or not but that is my suggestion. The last problem I had was copying from vcr to dvd. I got audio but no video. Problem was it was on dvd when i started it, it should have been on vrc. It should be set on whichever one you are recording from. Hope this helps someone.

It seems that if you disconnect the input video from your provider.... the unit will then transfer VHS to DVD...very odd

I have a Panasonic DMR-ES30V. I've only ever recorded from what I'm watching on the TV to a DVD. I now have a VHS tape that I'd like to record to DVD. I tried starting the dvd to record...


Most Combo Recorders (VHS and DVD) will prevent you from
recording a Copyrighted VHS tape program onto DVD.
Try recording a TV program onto your VHS tape, then
transfer it to your DVD and see if your new DVD recording
will work or not.

Samsung dvd vr-357; recorded DVD only plays on the player


You have to "Finalize" the disc before it will play on other units. Go to Disc Menu, Second choice listed(not in front of it right now) Selections to right will offer disc Finalize. Say YES.

Record from VHS to DVD


i should imagine so if they are not copy protected films i.e shop ones .if they are tv films on tapes etc then it would be possible to do so.
via insert the vhs tape and insert the blank dvd in to its tray
play the vhs tape and press rec to record on to dvd .
although the manual might give a better guide to doing this .

Backup my vhs tapes


First hook up the VR357 to the TV with any cable ..
Then put a VCR tape into the VHS player.. get the tape to where you want to start the recording and press stop.
Then put a blank DVD in (-r or -rw is the best)
Then press VCR on the remote
Then press TO DVD on remote
you will see the word COPY come up on the DVD player and the VHS tape will start to play.
When you are done just press stop twice. and you will get a message that says "updating information to disk"

Copying vhs to dvd using samsung vr357 ??


I do not think you would have to worry about a way to disable the copy protection that is on the vhs tapes. you are not going to record over them. You are just going to transfer information to the dvd side. jh

Samsung dvd recorder model vr-325


Ok I have been here before. The problem is your DVD burner in your DVD player unit may not be burning the disk in a format recognized by the Computer, or the laser may not have burned the disk to the set standard, and while it can play on that DVD player when you move it to a nother player it will not play. Well what we can do is Test the reverse first. Burn a DVD on your computer and try to play it on your DVD player and on the other TV. Then what I want you to do is to clean the lens of the player and try to burn a disk and play it on your computer. Let me know how this truns out.
