Question about JVC (VDR14EU5) Mini DVD-R Storage Media (5 Pack)

1 Answer

DVD recorder We bought the above less than 2 years ago and I am becoming disillusioned with it. Several times I've set the timer to record a programme I really want to see and it has failed to record. On some occasions it has recorded the visual but without sound. This is not for any reason offered in the manual. Last night was the last straw. The DVD I used was empty but, having recorded about 5 minutes of what came before the programme it seems to have switched itself off. I am really annoyed. Can anyone offer a suggestion as to why this happens and how I can overcome it please?

Re: DVD recorder

Sounds like a hardware issue. Given that the device is 2 years old, I would suggest buying a new one. Dvd recorders are not too expensive these days and you might save yourself a lot of headache by doing that. You might also try TIVO or some other form of dvr service, or set your computer up as a dvr if you know how.

MC-60 tape says, "end of

Wow, microcassettes! (Sorry, I thought they were so cutting edge when they were.......cutting edge!)
Anyway, forgive the humour - you've most likely got a tape jam in the cassette itself but if it does this with other cassettes then you've got a dead rewind function your message indicates that you've got a later model recorder with a status display.
What does Fast Forward do?
I know it's annoying but the cheapest option may be to turn the cassette over and use FF if it works OK.
Have you checked out digital pocket recorders?
For the same money, or less, than yours likely cost new, they free you from cassettes, tape winding time, poor quality - all those analogue hassles.
The memory (time) capacity even the most bog-standard (as we say in the UK!) ones have is mind blowing.

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.

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

Whenever the option is available, select NTSA or PAL for appropiate code transformation

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.

We can' record while watching another tv channel.

You only have one digital tuner so will have to watch analogue whilst recording or view through the TV tuner if you can.

How do i go about transfering vhs-c video from an

You have several options. But important one to understand is the limitations of a PIII computer like Armada e500. You may not have enough grunt to convert stuff, even after buying the necessary video capture devices which work on USB.

Also I am assuming you either have the jvc camcorder still available or atleast have a VHS-C to VHS adapter to play the tapes on a standard VHS tape player.

Unless you are having a lot tapes and need editing while converting, your better bet might be to go to one of the shops that convert these tapes on to DVD or a suitable flash drive which might work out cheaper and quicker.

The last time I did this thing (quality of my VHS-C tapes was bad) I bought a Samsung combined VHS Video / DVD recorder and used the dubbing feature to burn DVDs. Cost me about $150 a year ago. I was able to do some editing on the way as I was connected to the TV screen as well. Saved me the hassles of dealling with the PC type video capture devices and software.

Tascam 488 mk II recording problems

Have you taken a look at the edge of the tape? tracks 1 and 2 on a cassette are usually next to the edge and you may have a bad batch of tapes that have the edge damaged. Another possible but not a likley problem might be the tape is out of spec. for the width, and your heads MAY have a little wear from use, and are trying to act like tape guides. If the tape is slightly wider than the grove worn in the head, the tape would be lifted at the edge and not make contact to the head. It is not electronic as you have diagnosed this with other tapes. Give it a try and see!
