Try the next disc in the stack, and see if it will recognize the next one. If not, the problem is most likely the recording speed of the +R disc. Before you go changing disc types, however, I would also check the Record Mode you have set for the dub - if the REC Mode is set for XP, try changing the mode to SP and see if you have any luck. If it still won't work, try one of the tested +R discs:
SONY (2.4x, 4x, 8x, 16x)
TDK (4x)
Mitsubishi (4x, 8x)
Ricoh (2x, 4x, 8x)

Need manual for toshiba D-vr 610 recorder


For VHS -> DVD dubbing, make sure that you put in a compatible writable DVD with enough space for the video. For dubbing a DVD to VHS, make sure that you have a VHS tape with the erase protection tab on the tape. Insert the blank media in the correct side and the media that you want to record in the other. Press Setup on the remote, then select the General Settings menu. Then select Recording and finally Dubbing. (Use the up/down arrows to navigate the menus and press Enter to select an option.) Select the type of dubbing that you want to do. Press Setup to exit. Then press the DVD or VCR button (with the item to record) and press play and pause when you reach the point that you want to start the recording. Then press the other device button and press the Dubbing button (on the remote or the unit). Press Stop when done recording the selection.

Note: copy-protected videos can't be dubbed.

Crutchfield and Toshiba both have the manual for the DVR-610 . Crutchfield has the manual here: http://a248.e.akamai.net/pix.crutchfield.com/Manuals/052/052DVR610.PDF . See page 49 for a set of screen captures of the steps for duplicating a video.

I hope this helps.

How do you record dvd to vhs and from vhs to dvd


For VHS to DVD, put the tape to dub in the VHS slot and a blank DVD in the DVD tray. Make sure the DVD is compatible with the DVD recorder (see the recommended disc list) and is unfinalized if you are using a R/W disc. Close the tray. Set the unit to VCR mode with the DVD/VCR button. Advance the tape to the place that you want the recording to start. Then press the Dubbing button (either on the remote or the unit itself). Select the recording mode (SP, LP etc), highlight Dubbing then press Enter or Dubbing. Press Stop to interrupt the recording.

For DVD to VHS, put a blank tape in the VCR (make sure the protection tab has not been broken off) and the DVD to duplicate in the DVD tray and close the tray. Put the unit in DVD mode by pressing the DVD/VCR button. Find the point at which you want to start recording the DVD. Again press Dubbing and set up the recording mode and highlight Dubbing and press Enter or Dubbing.

Note that copyprotected content can not be recorded.

The manual for this recorder is on the right side of the page here: http://www.lg.com/us/tv-audio-video/video/LG-dvd-recorder-RC897T.jsp . See page 48 for the screen captures of setting the recording mode part of the dubbing procedure.

I hope this helps.

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!

Copy from vhs to dvd- want to speed process ???


I'm afraid, VHS tape have to be playback on standard speed for good picture and sound and dvd would also burn accordingly.
Noo way for fast dubbing because VHS tape video is analog signal that changed into digital signal in circuits to write on dvd disc.
I hope you understand how this dubbing works.

I have a Magnavox ZV427MG9. I follow all directions in manual for dubbing VHS home movies to DVD but when I try to play the DVD back there's nothing on them.What am I doing wrong?


Depending on the procedure you may be pressing the record button instead of the D.Dubbing or Dubbing button. When recording from VHS to DVD you must first, load the blank DVD and VHS home movies, then play the VHS movies, then PAUSE the VHS movie when you want to START recording... then the only the you have to do is pressing the D.Dubbing button or the Dubbing button. If your VHS tapes starts to play after the Dubbing button is pressed you have been successful in Dubbing.

VCR DVD Recorder not dubbing


I called the manufacturer and realized I was using the wrong type of recordable DVD disc to dub to. Non copy protected VHS tapes dub just fine as long as I'm using the proper disc.
