Unable to "dub" my 8mm tapes onto DVD-R using my Sylvania DV90VE

I've misplaced my owners manual and since I haven't tried to transfer (dub) my 8mm tapes onto DVD-R discs for a year or so, I've forgotten how.  Whenever I try to make the transfer, the screen on my monitor continues to read "E-24 recording error.  Cannot record on this disc." (Note, this message shows up whenever I push the DVD Record button. Since these are new Maxell 16X  DVD-R discs, I don't understand why I can't record.  Sure would appreciate any help from fellow Sylvania dvd-vhs dual recording units.

From comments posted on the Internet by other Sylvania users with a similar problem, I  learned that I had to use a 4X DVD-R (the ones I had been trying to record on were 16X). And I found that Office Depot sells the sometimes hard-to-find 4X format, so that's where I'm headed right after lunch.  Thanks.

I had a similar problem with a Cannon Optura PI and had to send it in. It was better, but I still have problems on occasion. If your intent is to transfer all the tapes to media, I would suggest purchasing Toshiba's DVD Video Recorder/Video Cassette Recorder. Model: DVR620KU. I use a VHS-C Cassette Adapter to play my VHS-C tapes in and the dubbed them to a DVD. Works great. Unfortunately, there is no 8mm/VHS Adapters, since 8mm, Hi8, miniDV are different formats with different technical characteristics than VHS. These formats were never developed with the intention to be mechanically compatible with past or current VHS technology. Your best bet would to borrow a HI-8 Camcorder and then dub your tapes to DVD's using the Toshiba machine. Here is a link to the Toshiba machine. http://www.testfreaks.com/dvd-players-recorders/toshiba-dvr620/
Good luck

I have a sylvania Video cassette Recorder/DVD player. Is there a way to copy the DVD onto videotape with this machine


It depends what you want to copy on DVD on to the video. If it's a commercial film, forget it! The machine/disc will have macrovision on it which will destroy any transfer to video. Otherwise there should be a button that says copy or dub that will let you record other types of DVD recordings to tape. But I can't understand why you would want to as the loss of quality would be bad.
