Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls post back the exact model numbers of the tape recorder, the Toshiba player/recorder and the JVC receiver.

To your concern:

  • cassette tapes refer to audio cassettes containing analog audio signals for left & right, whereas a player and recorder presumably is audio and video player/recorder;
  • although technically, it is very possible, it is not an efficient method of transferring the audio contents of the cassette tapes to a CD/DVD disc since the recorder will still record the video component even if it is non-existent from the audio cassette source;
  • additionally, not all player/recorder has an Audio/Video IN connection;
  • a more efficient method would be to use the Line IN of your computer, run an audio capturing software, save the captured audio as an MP3 or wave file and then burn into an audio CD.
  • connection the tape recorder to any receiver including a JVC would need 2 pairs of RCA to RCA cables connected to IN/OUT of tape recorder and the OUT/IN of the receiver.
Of course this would have to be revised if the cassette you are referring to would be VHS video tapes. Offhand, most player/recorder have a one touch record button specifically for this purpose.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

It should be pretty standard as with any. But I know some of those DVD recorders can be a pain.\

I would connect the Player of what it is you want recorded into the input or video audio in on the back of the DVD recorder, then switch the recorder to record mode and Press play on the output device ( I.E. Tape Player) So the DVD recorder can recieve the VHS signal and record it onto the DVD recorder. Check the Manual in case there are any special settings you may need to set first.

If you dont have them, Go to there site and download them.

Can I transfer video tapes onto CD's


A lot depends on what type of video tape you use and where do you want to play the DVDs (CDs are for audio recording only). If tape is compact VHS then you can buy a simple DVD Recorder VHS VCR combo player and transfer across easily provided you have the compact VHS cassette module.

For other type of video camera tapes you will have to try other methods like connect camera with tape to a DVD recorder and directly burn the DVDs. You can buy attachments and software for PC but I have found these very cumbersome to work with.

The proper codec may not be loaded on your computer. Find the format your DVD recorder uses, Google for a codec for that format. Find a player that supports the code, download and install it onto your computer and then try the DVD.

CANT TRANSFER CASSETT TO CD


Hi Margaret,

You can download the manual for this device here. The downloaded file is called "ad-rw900.pdf" and should be found in your download directory.

Locate and open the file (Adobe Reader) and review page 31. Here you'll find the details to go about recording a CD from the source you've selected with the "Input Select" button. When recording to a CD-R or CD-RW with a cassette TAPE (or LINE IN or PHONO) as the source, you must manually set the recording level as directed in step 5 on page 32. Check the blank recording media. The device is ONLY capable of recording on "CD-R" and rewritable "CD-RW" blanks (these are very different from DVDs of any type). The CD-R type will likely enjoy wider compatibility (than CD-RW types) when played back on a different (car or other) CD player.

I hope this helps & good luck!

How to record a cassette tape to a cd


Your question is posted under a "CD Shelf System" heading. If you really have one of these, the answer is "you can't". The CD player is a player only, not a recorder.

On the other hand, if what you're asking is how to transfer cassette tapes to CD using a computer, there are a couple of ways. One is to connect a cassette player (boom box, component system cassette deck, etc.) to the line-in jack of your computer's sound card. Download and install Audacity, which is free software for recording and editing sound. Then you can record the sound from your cassettes as you play them into the computer.

Another option, If you want to be fancy and spend a little money, is to buy a USB cassette deck. It automatically converts the cassette audio to digital and sends it to your computer over a USB cable. Recording software is supplied (sometimes the Audacity program mentioned before). Several companies make them. Here's one from a company called ION that some friends of mine have, and it seems to work well for them. They've been converting a lot of tapes of family members, and Audacity has been good for cleaning up tape hiss and enhancing the sound.

Either way, once you have the sound in your computer and processed to your liking, you just need to burn it to a CD using whatever burning software you have. (I use CDBurnerXP. It's free, easy to use, and does everything needed for normal CD and DVD burning.)

I would like simple steps to transfer VHS to DVD on my Toshiba DVR620KY. I want to copy with the unit alone. Would appreciate your help. Thanks.


Hi ,

Please follow the instructions below to record from VHS to DVD. You may not be able to record from some pre-recorded VHS cassettes due to copyight protection embedded into the recording. You should stick some tape over the copy-protection tab on cassettes prior to recording if the tab has been removed. On some cassettes, there may be a slide switch which needs to be moved to the record/rec position. All pre-recorded cassettes will have the copy-protection tab removed.

1. Switch on the TV and DVD/VCR and select the correct input on the TV for the player.
2. Set the player for the recording direction, i.e. VCR to DVD . . .

- Press the SETUP key on the Toshiba remote to open the on-screen menu
- Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to highlight GENERAL SETTING then press ENTER
- Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to highlight RECORDING then press ENTER
- Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to highlight DUBBING MODE then press ENTER
- Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to highlight VCR > DVD then press ENTER
- Press the SETUP key again to close the on-screen menu

3. Press VCR to select VCR mode.
4. Insert the cassette you wish to record and fast-forward or rewind it to the position where you want to start recording from. Allow at least 5 seconds extra if not starting the recording from the beginning of a cassette.
5. Press PLAY then press PAUSE immediately.
6. Press DVD to select DVD mode
7. Insert a blank DVD
8. Press the REC MODE button to select the recording mode (XP / SP / LP, etc)
9. Press the DUBBING key to start the recording.

You can watch the VCR while it's recording. When you reach the point where you want the recording to end, press the STOP key. You do not need to repeat step 2 every time you record. The player will stay in VCR > DVD recording mode unless you change it.

Hopefully, you will now be able to record from VCR to DVD. If you need further assistance, please let me know.

Regards,
BElectric

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/

To the best of my knowledge 8mm VTR's have not been available for some time now. On the other hand there are plenty of Hi8 cameras and players available after market. eBay is a great source. Keep in mind that Hi8 cameras and decks will also play standard 8mm video tapes.
There are also many video tape transfer services that will transfer your 8mm tapes to DVD or other formats of your choice. Just Google "videotape transfer service"
