Question about Sony DVDirect VRD-MC3 DVD Recorder
I have an older VHS-C camcorder (Panasonic PV-L501D) and VCR (PanasonicPV-9400) that have only mono outputs (not stereo). The VRD-MC5 will notrecord any sound from my VHS or VHS-C tapes. I contacted Sony to askfor a software upgrade, but was told they could not provide one. Theyalso told me that they do not guarantee the VRD-MC5 to work with allmodels of camcorders and VCR's. I tried using a ''Y'' RCA male cableto see if providing two input signals, instead of one, will get thesound will work. But it didn't. I sent it back to Amazon, but just curious whether my VRD-MC5 is defective, or all VRD-MC5's have this problem.

I had a similar no audio issue when using the I-Link connector and 8mm camcorder. I found that if i selected "Manual" rather than "Automatic" (copy everything) that I got good audio as well as video.
I have tried using a later model Sony miniDV camcorder with A to D passthrough from my 8mm Sony camcorder that I get better Video color using RCA cables directly from the 8mm Camcorder but better audio from the I-Link passthrough above.

maybe the circuit is bad why not try to trace the wire to see where the fault is from but i think its the wire maybe its broken inside.

SOURCE: Pal to NTSC
try NERO software...you will be able to go back and forth (pal or ntsc)...this might be a project / but you can also make into a very fun thing....(note also the DVD regions)
