Question about Sony RDR-VX530 DVD Recorder/VCR
i bought this recorder a few weeks ago, when i try to dub a vhs tape recorded in EP format ( ieL 6 hours) on a DVD+r (or -R) it's only copy in SP format on the dvd (ie: 2 hours max) instead of 6 hours in EP format (6 hours).
If i want to transfert my 6 hours vhs tape in EP format on my dvd ( ie: transfert the whole thing on a dvd) which setting should i change and where?? i tried to change the lenght of tape ( 180, 120 or 160) but it's doesn't change anything to it.. as soon as i insert a blank dvd inside the recorder, it's format himself o be ready to transfert the vhs tape in SP (max 2 hours) and i cannot "format" it to be able to record in EP format, wich i need....
is there somethng i am missing or i should do before ruining all my dvd spindle ?

SOURCE: Will not record on a DVD R
what I would do is play the vhs tape for a bit then rewind and press the dub botton only and see what happens. if nada then insert a new blank dvd and make sure its formated.

SOURCE: VCR DVD Recorder not dubbing
I called the manufacturer and realized I was using the wrong type of recordable DVD disc to dub to. Non copy protected VHS tapes dub just fine as long as I'm using the proper disc.
