MWR20V6 - cannot use dvd dubs on other equipment

I bought this model about a year & a half ago in order to dub my vhs tapes from our camcorder archives.

Problem #1 - I can make the dub, but I was disappointed that there is no way to edit on the fly - like to pause the copying and resume when the vhs reaches the next scene that i want to record.

Problem #2 is that once recorded, I was hoping to be able to edit it on my pc - but my editing software does not read it, and there is no info on what it needs to be converted to to be used that way.

Need advice on how to edit the created dvd - what codec, what software, what conversion, etc.

I have a PC that runs vista, and came with Windows DVD Maker, Windows Movie Maker, and InterVideo WinDVD.

HELP!!
thanks, Autumn

Its macrovision. You need a macrovision killer or a Go video. I am not promoting you to buy that but that would take care of the problem

SOURCE: want to dub

Protected tapes cannot be copied to DVD on this machine.

The only way is to connect the VCR to a separate DVD recorder with a special cable to remove the Macrovision protection.

These cables were readily available on the internet, but I have no more details.

SOURCE: wont dub from vcr to dvd

Hello,

Saw your request this morning.

Take note, sometimes our email alert system to we experts does not notifiy us about requests or questions you may pose later regarding this post of yours.

What patch cables, if any are you using now for audio? If there are ports on the back for audio out and audio in for DVD? Currently, are you using the internal circuitry to dub over to DVD from VCR?

Regards,
Worldvet

You need to go into the set up menu and select recording options. On the recording options menu, scroll down to dubbing options. On the dubbing options menu select either VCR to DVD or DVD to VCR.
Recording and Dubbing are not the exactly the same thing. You use the record buttons to record TV directly to VCR/DVD you use the dubbing buttons and set up to record DVD to VCR or VCR to DVD.
Hope this helps.

If the record mode of the original hdd recording was set for 2hr or 3hr mode, you will not be able to fit any more on the disc.

I have a Magnavox ZV427MG9. I follow all directions in manual for dubbing VHS home movies to DVD but when I try to play the DVD back there's nothing on them.What am I doing wrong?


Depending on the procedure you may be pressing the record button instead of the D.Dubbing or Dubbing button. When recording from VHS to DVD you must first, load the blank DVD and VHS home movies, then play the VHS movies, then PAUSE the VHS movie when you want to START recording... then the only the you have to do is pressing the D.Dubbing button or the Dubbing button. If your VHS tapes starts to play after the Dubbing button is pressed you have been successful in Dubbing.

Trying to dub vhs to dvd but the vhs does not have the security tab on it


this shouldn't matter as the security tab on the vhs only protects the data from being overwritten on the tape itself.

VCR DVD Recorder not dubbing


I called the manufacturer and realized I was using the wrong type of recordable DVD disc to dub to. Non copy protected VHS tapes dub just fine as long as I'm using the proper disc.

Dubbing to dvd no longer works, no error code


Apparently the disc I was using had something wrong with it, but not until I was almost 4 hours into dubbing something over. Changed the disc and started over and it works fine now. I guess with all the problems I had with the Emerson unit, I figured this one was about to buy the farm as well. Sorry to bother anyone.

close the disc tray.
2. Insert the VHS video tape you wish to copy into

to start copying.
7. To stop dubbing at any other time, press STOP (x).
Dubbing will stop automatically when the VHS tape ends.
