Cannot figure out how to copy VHS to DVD on Toshiba D-VR660KU

I got a new Toshiba DVR/VCR model D-VR660KU as a gift to copy my home movies. I have read this so-called manual over and over and still cannot figure out how to put a VHS tape in and copy it to DVD on this combo. It just can't be that hard...but I cannot find the process anywhere in the manual....can anyone help?

In the manual on toshiba's website, the instructions for dubbing are on page 59 and 60.

See manual page 59 "DVD/VCR DUBBING"
and page 60; the right hand column has a small heading "dvd to vcr". I haven't tried it yet myself; but when I do I'd start with those pages. Good luck.

I have Magnavox DVD player/vcr DV225MG9, does it record from vhs onto dvds? And if not, what do I need to get so that I can copy all of these old vhs movies to dvds?


it won't record dvd's its only a dvd player. only the vcr records
if the vhs movies your trying to record are movies like star wars and stuff like that it's copy protected and no worth the trouble. if it's home movies or something you recorded from tv they might work. if you get a dvd recorder/vhs player.

I have a Toshiba dvr 7 vcr dvd recorder. It occasionally gives an error message 85 when I am trying to copy a VHS tape to DVD. What does this mean and is there a way around it?


Commercial movie VHS tapes have copyright protection added to the tape. There is hardware in the recorder (mandated by law) that will sense this signal and not allow copying of these tapes to another tape or any other media. There are hackers that have built devices and modified equipment to circumvent this, but you risk legal action if caught.

I have a Toshiba DVD/VCR combo and I want to know if i can record a VHS onto a blank DVD disc ?


It all depends on the model of DVD/VCR Combo and what VHS you want to copy.

Pre Recorded VHS are copyright protected so the system won't let you copy them.

I have Toshiba D-VR660KU, I've copied several VHS


you need to finalize the disc or "make compatable" or "close session". basically the disc needs to be finished off to be able to play on any dvd player. dvd-r will normally play on any player as it is the standard format dvd discs. dvd+r/rw discs do not need to be finalized, but don't play on all machines.

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!

I have been told that you make a vcr - dvd machine that will convert vhs videos to dvd , if this is true pls advise model number and approximate price


There are DVD/VHS combo units that allow you to record VHS tapes onto DVDs. The price of these units range from about $150 up to $300+ depending on the quality of the brand you want. I have seen them on sale for less than $150, but you would need to look around for the sales. There is a problem with these units, however. Most newer VHS movies (and DVDs) are encoded for copyright protection and cannot be copied - unless you want to purchase a Descrambler. A Descrambler allows you to bypass the copyright codes and are to be used soley for the purpose of copying purchased movies. There are strict copyright laws as you have seen during the intro of VHS/DVD movies. If you intend to use the unit for copying things like TV shows, movies on cable, or home movies, then this would be a worthwhile purchase. I have just a standard Toshiba DVD burner and believe me, it gets a lot of use, mostly for TV shows on prime time TV. I work second shift and would miss out if I didn't have it. I can guarantee that you will get your moneys worth out of it. You can find them pretty much anywhere that sells electronics. As far as the Descrambler, I'm not sure they are carried in your local department store. The only ones that I have seen have been in magazine advertisements and once on The Home Shopping Network (HSN) and the price on there was around $100 - this was about 2 years ago. I hope that I answered your questions. Please take a few seconds to rate how helpful this post was for you. Thanks and good luck. billyho1977@FixYa
