Question about Daewoo DVD & Blu-Ray Players

13 Answers

Trying to copy Videos to DVD. I own the Vids and paid a lot of money for them 8 plus years ago. Now want to copy them to DVD. I have purchased a Daewoo 6700P VCR to DVD machine, but unfortunately the videos have a copyright 'dongle code' preventing me from copying a nice clean copy. I paid between £800 and £1000 each for the videos for use in my Training days. Can you suggest a method of piece of software etc I could use please? Thanks Mark

    I'm not sure that, that will work.
     A) I have an Apple Mac which may add a further compatibility problem and 
    B) If the copyright code is embedded on the video tape on not in the VCR-DVD Player/Recorder, will the computer not also be stopped by the same security code?


    Thanks

    Not being a computer wiz! This may be silly, but if the code is embedded in the video tape and NOT in the machine, how would copying the Video to computer first be any better?

    Many thanks

    Hi Guys

    Tell me am I doing something wrong? I have just read about 6 replies/suggestions and 5 of them were from the same chap suggesting the same link to another site! Is that what my 9.95 was for?

    Thanks
    Mark

  • Mark Goodwin Nov 27, 2008

    Thank you Kevin.

    I am using a Mac G5 not PC.

    I am trying to copy VHS regular videos NOT the smaller camcorder type. The Daewoo machine had an aperture for the video on the left of the copy machine and an aperture for the DVD on the right.

  • Mark Goodwin Nov 27, 2008

    Thanks Debroy. Daewoo was my first point of call. They went through a range of diagnostics with me to prove the machine was OK. Next when I asked about code cracking, the guy said that he did not know of any software on the market that will crack video recordings!!!

  • Mark Goodwin Nov 27, 2008

    Thanks, unfortunately that doesn't solve my problem!

  • Mark Goodwin Nov 27, 2008

    Wow Dave,

    That seems to make the most sense so far! Can you suggest a capture device that I can get that will be compatible with a
    G5 Mac, 300GB HD, 500GB Ext HD and 6Gig Ram

    Many thanks for taking the time

    Mark

  • Mark Goodwin Nov 27, 2008

    Many thanks Ginko

    Unfortunately, the Daewoo DRV 6700P VCR to DVD machine is not listed in the compatibility list

    Mark

  • Mark Goodwin Nov 27, 2008

    OK Benimur

    I will check them out and see if I can find a card.

    I will let you know how I get on. My deadline is Monday 1 Dec!!

    It appears from the suggestions I am getting that this may well be the way to go. If I am reading it correctly, I need to buy a peripheral (maybe a card? Anything else?) and then do the plugging and playing that you suggest

If your Daewoo 6700P VCR to DVD machine is set to the Region 2 (Europe) you can only copy videos within the same Region Code. Otherwise you have to generate a dongle code to unlock the firmware protection system built into the device. If you can set the machine to Region 0 (Dongle Free / Region Free) you can bypass the copy protection system. Another way is to capture a live stream from a VCR to a capture card on your computer; it's slower but gets the job done. Bear in mind that Europe uses a different video protocol (PAL) then the US (NTSC) and Japan (NTSC-J) which complicates the copy process. I am available for further questions so don't hesitate to ask.

    This is your best economical and least time consuming option I would not spend the time or the headaches on the capture card. It will be nothing but more time and money. If you have any questions let me know. The SIMA device is your best bet. If you only need the device for this one time, you can buy it use and sell it used almost new and get most of your money back. Please take a moment to accept my solution as you should find my solution more then helpful if not FixYa.

The dvd recorder recognizes code in the copyrighted tapes.

try this: (got info from pirates)

play the tape on a vcr with a composite video-out port ->

-> (the yellow rca jack) ->

-> connected to a video capture peripheral for computers.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

May I offer an alternate method?

  • use the Daewoo 6700P as an ordinary VCR player;
  • use the RF out (Channel 3);
  • borrow/purchase a TV card for the G5;
  • connect the RF OUT of the Daewoo to the ANT/CABLE IN of the TV card;
  • run the program of the TV card, tune to Ch.3 and record the training movies.
The idea is not to use the composite video out where the copyright code would be affecting the recordings.

Samples of the TV card for the Mac would be:
  • Alchemy DVR card;
  • Elgato EyeTV 250.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

    Appreciate the comment.

    Of course, any other TV card compatible with the G5 would serve the
    purpose. Might I suggest try to get one that has multiple INPUT
    capability not only RF/ANT/CABLE; but likewise with composite, S-video
    and any others.

    You could then try any mode of output from the Daewoo 6700P's that would prove to be to produce the best quality.

    Possibly another area to explore is to use two devices, an old VCR as the player and the new Daewoo 6700P as the DVD recorder except the audio/video composite connectionis not used. Rather RF OUT of the old VCR to RF IN of the Daewoo 6700P.

    Cheers.

To override the copyright dongel code you would need to buy a dvd stabilizer.

Buy Facet Video Clarifier™ Video Stabilizer - Clarifier™ SX

It is one of the best.Also this one is good: Grex http://www.xdimax.com/grex/grex.html#FEA.

The quality is good with both, see opinions here.

You need a video capture device, you can get one for your USB port. The video tapes have what is called "macro vision" copy protection. The way it works is the video tape puts out a signal and the VCR or DVD recorder recognizes the signal as a copy protection and refuses to let you copy. But a video capture device on your computer does not use these same encodings so you will be able to copy your tapes to the computer and then burn them to DVD.

Let me know if you want further help.

    Hi,

    Glad to hear you liked my solution. You can pick from any number of USB video capture devices. They are much cheaper than a card that installs inside the computer and they are much easier to set up. All you do is plug it in to the USB port and load the software, then conenct your VCR/DVD recorder to it. I have used several with much good luck. From the cheap ones to the more expensive ones and have not had a problem with any. I have copied many VHS tapes to DVD with them.

    Go to this place and search for "USB video capture" and you will get a list of all they have. This is a great place with great prices, I have used them for many years and never find any better prices anywhere else. Very good reputation!!!!

    if the mac has RGB, S-Video or composite ports, then all you need is a scart lead which will connect to the ports that i have mentioned, don't worry about copyright block, the video card will bypass this, i have converted VCR - DVD countless numbers of times and NEVER come accross the copyright block and i have got decent quality conversions too

    You can download the video using windows movie maker which comes default with the windows operating system.
    You should have a s-video cable to connect the computer to the dvd player to download the video.
    In the Windows Movie Maker software there in an option " capture video" use that option to download the video.

The older laser player/burners may have used a different angle for the read/write service. It is like a phonograph needle sitting in a groove that tracks the data as it pans the surface.
Try to COPY the CD/DVD to the desktop if you can. If you know the OLD player worked, use that to COPY the Data to your Current computer desktop and then copy that back to new CD using the new hardware.

Can i override the copy protected vhs tape to copy to dvd using the Funai Dvd/Casstte recorder HDR-B2735


There are ways around macrovision, but you would have to spend money on a box of tricks and you would have problems copying using the DVD/Cassette with it. Some computer programs will get rid of it, but again you would have to spend money to connect the VCR to your computer. In the end I have found it cheaper and less time consuming to purchase the DVD. Plus it will be better picture quality, aside from the fact that copying such an item is against the law.

Loses power when the DVD door closes...strange


If you're able to turn the player back on and watch a movie be very happy. Otherwise, if the only way to power the unit back on is to open the tray, this is a repair issue. If you bought the unit recently, it should be under warranty--as long as you kept the receipt. However, if the unit isn't in warranty, unless you paid a lot of money for it ($125+) I would suggest replacing the player.

I took the liberty of looking up Denon's warranty. Basically, you have a one year warranty from the date of purchase. If the player has to be shipped, you pay the shipping to the service center and they pay the shipping back to you. You have to have the receipt in order to take advantage of the warranty (you're required to send a copy of the receipt with the player.)

Dvd recording using a pc


The product you need is called the Pinaccle Dazzle - it is basically a red/white/yellow composite to USB connector - it also comes with software for capturing your videos in DVD format on your computer (or you can record directly to a DVD disc inserted in yuor computer). I purchased mine at Best Buy, but it is available in a lot of places. It works great, and I have been busily converting those old VHS's to my PC, and then from PC to DVD.

Good luck!

Go Video VCR/DVD Combo DVD drawer won't open


There are drive gears in the unit and it should not be making a whirring noise. It usually ejects in a second, and thats all of the noise you should hear. There are no belts, or at least not in that portion of the transport. Its probably a plastic gear that has worn down from years of use, or broken from someone trying to force it open.

With the prices of DVD players these days you would not want to have it serviced assuming it is out of warranty. Service is going to cost upwards of 80+parts, whereas I saw a DVD player the other day in Wall mart for 32.00.

Best of luck and Happy New year!

I have been told that you make a vcr - dvd machine that will convert vhs videos to dvd , if this is true pls advise model number and approximate price


There are DVD/VHS combo units that allow you to record VHS tapes onto DVDs. The price of these units range from about $150 up to $300+ depending on the quality of the brand you want. I have seen them on sale for less than $150, but you would need to look around for the sales. There is a problem with these units, however. Most newer VHS movies (and DVDs) are encoded for copyright protection and cannot be copied - unless you want to purchase a Descrambler. A Descrambler allows you to bypass the copyright codes and are to be used soley for the purpose of copying purchased movies. There are strict copyright laws as you have seen during the intro of VHS/DVD movies. If you intend to use the unit for copying things like TV shows, movies on cable, or home movies, then this would be a worthwhile purchase. I have just a standard Toshiba DVD burner and believe me, it gets a lot of use, mostly for TV shows on prime time TV. I work second shift and would miss out if I didn't have it. I can guarantee that you will get your moneys worth out of it. You can find them pretty much anywhere that sells electronics. As far as the Descrambler, I'm not sure they are carried in your local department store. The only ones that I have seen have been in magazine advertisements and once on The Home Shopping Network (HSN) and the price on there was around $100 - this was about 2 years ago. I hope that I answered your questions. Please take a few seconds to rate how helpful this post was for you. Thanks and good luck. billyho1977@FixYa
