Question about Sony VRD-MC1 DVD RW Dual Layer Burner

1 Answer

"Failed to Record"

I have a brand new Sony DVDirect VRD-MC3. We have been using it with no problems until last night. We inserted a new DVD+R, connected our MiniDV Camcorder to the machine and chose "record", as always. It rewound the tape and started playing it like normal - but at the end instead of asking to finalize the disc - it said "failed to record". We thought it might be a bad DVD, so we trashed that one and tried again and received the same error. I don't know if the problem is with the DVDirect, the video or the camcorder...any suggestions?

Recommended Media When Using the VRD-MC3


OK, I purchased this device in order to tranfer/preserve stacks of old 8mm and VHS tapes to DVD, quickly, without any desire to perform any editing. I have created several DVD's using the PC and find this to be extremely time consuming, although you have total editing control. I started out with the VRD-MC3 using Memorex inkjet printable DVD+R (16X) blank media (not on Sony's suggested media list) and met with limited success. Was using SP mode in order to get 2 hrs worth of tape on to 1 DVD. After awhlie I started experiencing the dredded "finalize disc" errors, which it couldn't do after sitting there for 2 hrs, and ended up with a few coasters. In talking with Sony, they felt this was most likely attributable to bad media and recommend using a few different brands such as their own, TDK, Verbatim, Maxell. So, I thought I'd try Sony DVD+R (1-16x) blank DVD media and gave it a try, feeling that if it didn't work well with their own media, then it most likely wouldn't do well with any other brand either. I have met with success using this media and had no problems recording tapes that produced coasters the first time. Overall I'm happy with this product but it's finicky and seems to work best if you stick to using Sony's products.

Is it possible to copy 3 short Hi-8 tapes onto one DVD+R disc?


Yes...First chose the appropriate Record Quality based on the total length of all 3 videos you want to transfer. Next using a RCA component cable, connect the Yellow, Red and White from the Hi-8 camcorder to the DVDirect RCA inputs. After each tape has finished, just press the red record button...Press it again when the next tape your want to record begins. When all are done prrss the stop button (small button above the record button) and finalize as normal.

Recording from DVR.


There is a firmware update posted on the Sony support web site. It takes care of the copy protect error. However, i have encountered an error where the recorder doesn't identify the input signal. It posts the message "waiting for input signal." I have no solution for this one yet.

Failed to record


Need to connect both the 3-prong AV adapter *and* the firewire cord. The firewire connect alone does not work, and the 3-prong AV cord alone does not work. But connect both cords to the two devices, and it seems to work. 15 minutes and counting... Hope this helps someone.
