My son transferred vhs movies to dvd's using this unit. The problem is that Iam trying to see the dvd's in my dvd computer drive and is telling me the disk is empty. Can I view these dvd's using windows media? Do these dvd's needto be converted to windows? If so, how? I want to capture still photos from the movies. Tried other dvd drivers from other people computers and the same problem

the spec says Transfer, edit and burn home videos with this all-in-one external HP DVD movie writer. The built-in analog video capture lets you quickly and easily transfer home video directly from tape to DVD via your camcorder or VCR, while the included suite of software lets you add special effects, music and more to video and photos. Also great for creating music CDs, it writes and reads CD-R and CD-RW discs in addition to DVD-R and DVD-RW discs. Includes software CD, electronic user's guide, USB cable, composite video/audio cable, 1 blank DVD-RW disc and 1 blank DVD-R 4x hi-speed disc. Requires a PC with Microsoft Windows XP or 2000 Professional SP2 and USB connectivity.
If the entire VHS is full then you can easily transfer the VHS contents to the DVD. The video will play while it is recording onto the DVD, but you don't have to have it hooked up to any TV for it to record. Now if you don't know how long the VHS content is that you want to record to DVD, then you will have to hook up the player to a TV so that you can press stop when you reach the end of the content you want recorded. At least this is true in the way that I use to transfer VHS to DVD:
1) Turn on the unit 2) Insert VHS tape 3) Insert DVD-+R or DVD-+ RW 4) Using remote, press VCR 5)Using remote, press play then pause the tape where you want to start recording. 6)Using remote, press DVD 7) Using the remote, press DUBBING. The VHS should start to play and the DVD should start recording
When using this method, don't hit the RECORD button!
I'm glad to provide the instructions to transfer video from VHS Tape to DVD. You may purchase a DVD Recorder and connect the VCR to its A/V input to record the videos directly to a DVD. There are VCR/DVD Combo Recorders available where you can dub from VHS to DVD without using another VCR.
Alternately, if you have an A/V interface in your Computer, you can connect a VCR to the Computer and capture videos using Windows Movie Maker or any other video capture software. Once you transfer the video to the computer, you can burn the videos to a DVD using the DVD burner in the Computer.
Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require further assistance or any clarifications.
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.
U play another movie like a Hollywood movie DVD disc play on it have no squealing noises wright?Yes,than the blank DVD discs batch u have is bad.Tries buy another batch DVD blank discs,tries recording again should solved this problems.
as i recall VHS cassettes have a hole on front (where is the label with name of movie ) which disables re-recording over original movie.
if that isn`t the problem,you can try with connecting your VCR to PC inputing audio and video cable to PC. requirements for this recording from VCR to PC is that PC has graphic card with audio-video input.
Not if you mean recording within that 1 unit from VHS to DVD.You would need a second unit DVD recorder which normally requires a digital input of some sort such as a cable box or a self-contained digital scanner but I am not sure if that would even work.It would depend on what the media input was recorded on the VHS.
I don't know what recorder machine you have or what your hooking up to do your transferring. You cant convert VHS movie to DVD by plugging in RCA jacks from VHS player to DVD recorder. DVD reads digital and VHS does not because it reads analog and out put analog. you have to covert VHS movie into digital in order to transfer to DVD. There is a program you can buy call Roxio Easy. great stuff, cost 59.00 buck for your desk top computer, everything you need is there to transfer VHS to DVD...hope that help some, good luck.
