DVD Computer Compatibility (Toshiba DVD/VHS Recorder D-VR7KC
The Recorder is great for dubbing VHS tapes to a DVD - but the DVD does not work on my computer - and the reason I wanted to do the conversion was specifically to play the DVDs with my computer. Any suggestions?
Re: DVD Computer Compatibility (Toshiba DVD/VHS Recorder...
You need to make sure you close the DVD when you finish recording. Then put it in a PC and use Intervideo Win DVD to play it. My problem is that I am trying to convert it to an MP format so I can capture it with video software and make a movie. Not sure if I can save it in an MP format in the first place with my toshiba d-vr7kc dvd to vhs recorder. Do you know if this is possible?

Recorded from tv shows to DVD Disc have to hookup AV RCA component cables to both to Tv and DVD recordable player model connections together.Yes,u will able to recordable VHS tapes to DVD Discs.But ur DVD player model u have it is must be a recorderable DVD player model?Not just a DVD Discs and VHS tapes player only model.Check ur owner manual all are in there.
Are you asking how to get the tape back? Partial disassembly of the case (UNPLUGGED) would allow removal of the tape.
If you are asking how to repair a VCR, no one can tell you how to do that on a forum. VCRs have quite a number of moving parts, mostly driven by rubber belts. These stretch with time and the mechanisms quit working. Since a simple belt replacement costs as much as a cheap DVD player most people change to DVD at this point.
If you have high-personal-value videotapes (home movies) , these can be converted to DVDs by any local photo service and would last a long time in the new format. They will NOT copy commecial videotapes for you.
The only safe way to remove the cassette without damaging anything in the vcr is to remove the vcr and carefully remove it. Don't force anything. It can be accessed by removing the rear cover. There should be two srews holding the DVD/VCR mechanism then pull the whole "tray" out at once. There may also be a metal cover over the vcr section. Just follow the screws until you can see where the tape is caught. Thanks for using fixya.
I don't know what recorder machine you have or what your hooking up to do your transferring. You cant convert VHS movie to DVD by plugging in RCA jacks from VHS player to DVD recorder. DVD reads digital and VHS does not because it reads analog and out put analog. you have to covert VHS movie into digital in order to transfer to DVD. There is a program you can buy call Roxio Easy. great stuff, cost 59.00 buck for your desk top computer, everything you need is there to transfer VHS to DVD...hope that help some, good luck.
not much of a help but sounds like your record head is bad on the vhs heads,
use cleaning tape try that, if that fixes great, if it helps but not fully there, you might have to clean them by hand with very soft paper town and rubbing alcohol rub side to side very easy , if none of the above work you have a bad record head or record board, not worth repair vs cost
It sounds to me like you have a problem with the reel sensors not detecting movement of the tape through the VCR. This could also be caused by a defective voltage regulator(s) that powers the sensors. This model was made by symphonic/funai (1-800-242-7158), and it is not likely worth repairing.
