There are two basic methods to capture VHS to DVD:
1. with a stand-alone DVD recorder/player;
2. Capture, edit, export, and author to DVD with a computer and video-editing software.
For either method, you'll need a solid VHS Player for playback and output. If your VCR is of the wood-paneled variety, consider an upgrade to a VCR that supports composite outputs (yellow, red, and white connectors), or better yet, S-Video (one multi-pinned connector).
Method 1 – VHS to DVD, Quick and Simple The fastest, easiest way to transfer VHS to DVD is with a standalone DVD recorder, likeSony's DVDirect MC5 Multi-Function DVD Recorder. With this option, you don't need a computer. Just hook up your VCR deck directly to the DVD recorder, pop in a VHS tape and press record on the DVD recorder. A built-in LCD monitor allows you to preview the videos as they record. Direct VHS-to-DVD recording, however, doesn't allow you to edit the video. If you want to edit your video before burning to DVD, read on.
Method 2 – Flexible Video-Editing Option
Have Aunt Suzy and Uncle Gary's exhaustive slide shows made you see ZZZZ's behind your drooping eyelids?
Edit out the ZZZZ's and flubs, and focus instead on the highlights of your vacation. Although video editing is more labor intensive and requires a little more technical know-how, its flexible options allow you to engage your audience with dynamic transitions, pyrotechnic special effects, and a killer soundtrack to keep the snoozers alert and engaged.
A computer loaded with basic non-linear editing software, DVD authoring software, and a DVD burner is essential. Entry-level editing software such as Apple iMovie, Adobe Premiere Elements, or Pinnacle Studio will do just fine. We'll use iMovie and iDVD to demonstrate, but the same concepts can be used on PC-based video editing and DVD-authoring programs.

If it won't PLAY VHS tapes it must have a serious mechanical problem (if it even loads) or its heads are glommed up, so it obviously won't record them either. When's the last time you ran a cleaning tape through it?


Solve the load or playback problem and it will probably record.


Time and poor storage conditions are the mortal enemies of tapes. Store the in a 'played

Converting NTSC home Video tapes to Pal DVD or NTSC DVD


You need either an NTSC DVD recorder (keep in mind that the US has 110 voltage, while Australia does not), or a computer card that supports NTSC. Some video capture cards support both NTSC and PAL (often switchable). Choose good quality, and pay attention to video/sound sync - some bad quality cards loose sync. Once the tapes are transferred to DVD - and keep it native NTSC all the way, they can be played on virtually any PAL DVD player/TV combo. With an NTSC source, it's best NOT to convert to PAL, while with a PAL source in the US, you'd need to convert to NTSC or only show the DVD on a computer (where NTSC/PAL doesn't matter).

Be advised that this unit, the Go-Video DVR4300, is a combined VCR (video cassette recorder) and DVD Player; it does not record DVDs. Only a DVD Recorder unit will serve your need.

Instructions for recording to VCR from TV is in the manual.

I have the manual. Are you trying to record something live? if so:

1) Turn on both the DVD/VCR and your TV.
2) Switch the input selector on your TV so that the signal from the player appears on the TV screen (this is usually something like 'input 1' or 'line 1' and so forth)
3) On your remote, set TV/DVD-VIDEO to DVD-Video, then press SELECT VIDEO to control the VCR. These buttons are at the upper left hand corner of the remote controller.
4) To record from a cable box, turn it on.
5) make sure the tape is longer than the total recording time.
6) insert a tape into the VCR.
7) press CH +/- on the remote to select the channel or line input video source to record.
8) select the tape speed SP/EP (SP provides better quality, EP provides three times the recording time as SP)
9) Press the record button to start recording. The VCR display will display the message REC.
