Magnavox H2160MW9 VHS tape "recording not allowed" to hard drive

I am converting my out of production (1972-2001) tapes to DVD before they degrade and assume they were produced with copy protection in force and the tapes are typically two volume sets. For various tape sets I have copied both, one or neither of a set of tape volumes to the unit's _hard_disk_drive_ and received the message "recording not allowed" for neither, one or both tapes, respectively. Is there an explanation for this random "recording not allowed" message? Is there a work around or upgrade to the systems bios, firmware or software that can be applied? For good measure, I feed the VCR video output through a signal amplier to prevent the dark oscillations that occur on copies of tapes with copy protection. Thanks in advance for any guidance on this problem.

RIAA has prodded the electronics manufacturers into putting copy protection into their recorders. You are allowed one copy, I believe, and you will be able to make it to a DVD-R in VR mode. VR mode protects (how? dunno) the recording from being copied a second time. DVD-RAM and DVD-R (maybe -RW) in VR mode should allow you to make your copy.

    I was wrong. The 2160 will not write to -R or -RW media, only +R & +RW. It will not copy protected films.
    You can spend some money and buy a protection remover. The fine people at www.avsforum.com have information about those products.

    My error again. The 2160 will use - and + media.
    You can feed that VHS component through a Polaroid DRM-2001G and then on to the component in on the 2160 and it should record. The Polo can also be set to handle Macrovision, I think.

You need to purchase a VHS head cleaner or clean the heads and pinch rollers by hand. remove cover and lid to drive system. you will see all the tape guides, rollers and heads. use Q-tips and denatured alcohol and clean every thing the tape touches. swap q-tips as they get dirty.

Power off when inserting vhs tape


I had this problem when copying an old family vhs tape. I had to unscrew the top of the magnavox to access the vhs tape. Then, I gently removed the tape and replaced the cover. After winding the tape back, I put it in the player and immediately pushed fast forward for about 3 seconds before hitting play followed by d.dubbing. I was able to make a copy of the tape and did not damage my original.

I need help converting vhs tapes to dvd+r


If you have both a VCR and DVD recorder there is no problem. Just connect the A/V output from the VCR to the A/V input of the DVD recorder. Start the tape and press record on the DVD recorder. (these connection are RCA type ans coloured white, red, abd yellow. Just connecxt them colour to colour. Couldn't be simpler. When the recording finishes, transfer to an optical disk. After finalizing, the VOB files from the optical disk can be converted to mpeg4 or any other format you desire using your PC.

I just bought a Magnavox ZV450MW8A DVD/VCR Recorder. It has recording capabilities on both the DVD and VCR components but can you tell me if I can use it to record FROM the VCR directly onto the DVD? This...


Yes, you can, I have this unit and have actually copied a dvd to a vhs and then copied back to a dvd as I wanted a dvd copy to give a friend. The directions in the book are really quite simple. They tell you how to set the vhs to the spot where you want to start copying, etc.

I have not yet tried copying my family vhs tapes, but don't see a problem, just a big project. Good luck.

I want to transfer from vhs to dvd. Video tape is protected.


You can copy VHS tapes that cannot be done on standard equipment. You can buy EZGRABBER to down load VHS tapes to your hard drive, then use a program likePower Produucer to go from your hard drive to a recordable DVD unit if you have one installed in your computer
