Trouble with recording onto DVD

I was recording my home made vhs tapes to DVD's and all was fine. I just started to do it again and the DVD just makes noises like it it reading the disk and then says it dosn't recognize the disk. I get the same message when I make a disk off of television shows. It would initialize, start recording, then make the noise of reading the disk after about 5 minutes of recording and then the message of not recognizing the disk comes up.
I have run the maxell lens cleaner with brushes on the DVD side, but hasn't helped.

It sounds like there is a problem with the lens in the drive of the electronics that control it, I would suggest you take the dvd/vcr combo to your dealer if you are still inside of warranty to geit it repaired. if you are outside of warranty consider the price of a new device to the price of reparing the dvd drive inside the unit.

Will this model record from the vhs tape to the dvd?


You don't state the manufacturer or model number in your question, thus we cannot answer. I will say that many do, but there is a caveat. If the the VHS tape is a commercially made movie, chances are it has copy protection on it. Most machines will sense this copy protection and will refuse to copy the protected VHS tape to DVD. This was done to prevent piracy. Home recorded tapes and non-protected tapes will usually work ok. Do not confuse write protection with copy protection however. Write protection is merely the tab on the tape that prevents re-recording of the tape. Copy protection is recorded right onto the tape itself and is read by the machine during playback.

Most Combo Recorders (VHS and DVD) will prevent you from
recording a Copyrighted VHS tape program onto DVD.
Try recording a TV program onto your VHS tape, then
transfer it to your DVD and see if your new DVD recording
will work or not.

Just got this Toshiba DVR620KU and need to record from home movie VHS to DVD. Have DVD-R, I have set the time, have it on the program VHS to DVD, I start the VHS, put it on pause. Go DVD, select rec...


Good one!

Sounds like you are doing everything right. Only things I can think of are:

- Make sure the disc is a blank one.
- Try a different disc.
- Make sure the tape you are trying to dub is not encoded with Macrovision copyguarding. If it is a home-made recording then you are OK, but a factory recording on a store bought tape may cause some difficulties.

If you are still having troubles try a complete 15 minute reset by unplugging from the power source.

Good luck!

How to record a VHS tape to a DVD disc


Read your manual first to make sure the unit will do this.If it does chances are it won't record unless it has a decoder built in.Most VHS tapes have macrovision protection that prevents you from copying them.It will however,record homemade VHS tapes.There are decoders out there you can buy to enable you to copy VHS tapes.

Hi,
There should be no problem with copying home recorded VHS tapes to DVD via the Scart or Video (yellow) output. It may be obvious but have you tried recording directly from other sources such as TV etc. Apologies if this is a trivial suggestion!

Cheers

Recording from vhs to dvd


Direct copy VCR to DVD:
- Insert VHS tape you want to copy
- Insert a recordable DVD disc
- Press DVD copy button on front panel or remote control (to DVD).
- To stop recording press the stop button.

IMPORTANT: If attempting to copy copyrighted material the Samsung DVD-VR320 will detect the encoding and will not allow the copy to be made.
