Daewoo VHS to DVD converter - disk only plays on the converter

I have a Daewoo VHS to DVD convertor (sorry don't have the model name to hand) using the one touch transfer method I have managed to copy a VHS tape onto a DVD-R.
I can play the resultant disk on the Daewoo machine and all loks fine but on any other player ( I tried two others ) and on my PC the player is permanently stuck trying to load the disk with no error shown.
Looking on the disk there are two files created one of which is the film the other is empty. My guess is the empty file is the problem. Has anyone encountered anything similar and managed to resolve it please?

The Disc needs to be finalised. Using the setup menu and disc info you select "finalize disc". I had the same problem.

try recording on a blank tape and setting the tape speed to SP (standard play). you should also see options for (LP-long play) and SLP (super long play). I think your machine is stuck on SLP option. if no-go, look for a manual on the web.

SOURCE: I'm trying to transfer VHS

It's an screen display for the Hi-Fi sound playing. However it should only come on when first starting. If it keeps popping up during playback it means that the Hi-Fi sound is dropping out then coming back on. This is often caused by poor tracking or the result of dirt on the video head. Clean the head and see if that solves the problem. If you are doing a lot of tapes keep cleaning it. Few video's have the option to remove on-screen displays. However if they do it will be on the menu somewhere.

It's almost certain that some damage has occurred to the mechanism. This might be visible to the eye. Whenever a tape cannot be played the electronics will detech this and shut the unit down to prevent further damage. Cleaning will not make any difference unless some kind of object has become lodged inside the works. My advice is to look at any plastic parts connected with the 'playing' parts for breaks, or cracks, or even lose parts.

My VHS-to-DVD Burned Disc used to work and now it doesn't


Richard,

It could be your disc is scratched or DVD+R can't be read in the DVD player. Check for any scratches. Then pop in the disc in to your PC DVD, to see if it's readable.

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 hope this helps!

I have old home movies on these tapes.. I am looking into buying the Pinacle Dazzle DVD Recorder (convert) will this convert my tapes to DVD? Does anyone know?


You already have Movies on TDK E-HG 120 VHS tapes; All you want is to Transform the media on the tapes into another record Media or on DVD.

The following process would make possible the project

1. A DVD Recorder device would transform the movies already on one media to another media.
Note: The recorder that would be acquired should have a feed area for the VHS tapes on one hand, to be played, while on the other hand, a DVD disk area from which disk medium would be recorded.

Important Notes.
The devices required to make the process achievable includes
1. The DVD Recorder or Player alsoo known with multi perpose functionality for signal convertion capability
2. The DVD recordable disks on which to record a movies onto.

Caution
The process of recording would require selection features determinable on the recorder device else would produce movies with undesireable features

For example; VHS movies are appear in decodeable formats integral when displayed on VHS players. The caution is to select a signal conversion format suitable for movies that have to transform between recordable media.

1. A DVD disk medium has formats as design specification and on which requires consideration when attempting to transfer multi media or motion pictures.

Type of formats of decodes
NTSA standards
PAL standards
Mescem standards

NOTE;
Whenever the option is available, select NTSA or PAL for appropiate code transformation
Your DVD RECORDER DEVICE SHOULD HAVE THE OPTION TO RECORD CONSIDERING MOVIES ACROSS MEDIUM TYPES

REMEMBER;
consult professional advise before acquiring an devices and mediums

If any consultation is required, refer to user guides or manuals of the devices in question.

Consult a technical expert when the need requires it.

Hooking up my DVD/VHS player to TV & Convertor box


I would just hook up the dvd/vhs player with the red,white,yellow rca cables that should of come with your unit and just go to the input on the tv to watch your dvd/vhs player. This will give you a better picture and sound while allowing you not to have to watch dvd/vhs on a channel which helps make the dvd/vhs player independent. Also if possible I would hook the converter box up with the red,white, yellow rca cables to the tv as well if your tv has more than one set of red,white,yellow plugs since it is a better connection that coax and you probably watch more tv than vhs/dvd anyway. So bottom line try to hook up both boxes red,white,yellow and watch each box on different inputs instead of like channel 3 or 4. Also to record of converter box you can run coax from converter box to dvd/vhs combo and make sure your dvd/vhs player is on tuner input or channel 3.

NTSC to PAL


You have to buy first a VHS player that can play NTSC, might not be available locally in Ireland so you have to probably buy online (US). The DVD recorder is fairly comnon nowadays and all of them are capable of recording and playing NTSC and PAL. You can then connect the AV out of VHS player to the AV In of the recorder. Or you can use a VHS-DVD combi. You can google in UK, here is an example: Toshiba RD-XV45, according to the specs, it can play NTSC on the VHS and you can record to DVD on any format that yoou want You can go to this link to view other product: http://audiovisual.kelkoo.co.uk/b/a/sbs/100304323/16875665.html My father died of cancer 6 years ago and I am also transferring the Hi-8 videos to digital format using PC.
