Re: insignia dvd recorder

Unfortunately, no, unless the DVD is not copy written material. Commercial DVD and VHS tapes have a built in copy protection called Macrovision. Basically, it prevents copying them with any Macrovision enabled recorder. All DVD and VHS players sold in North America are required to have Macrovision Enabled. Though there are certain players that get around this (such as the Apex AD-1500, in which Macrovision can easily be disabled), unless you research and purchase one of those specifically, you're not going to be able to avoid Macrovision, and therefore won't be able to copy anything to or from a commercial DVD or VHS tape. Hope that answered your question completely, even if it wasn't what you wanted to hear.

How do I record a vhs onto a dvd on the combo?

I have researched the manual for this particular device and you will not be able to convert/record VHS tapes to DVD discs. You can however record content from a DVD to VHS tape as this model only has a readable disc player not a DVD burner. Sorry, but you may want to research DVD recorders that also have VHS playback.

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.

How do I record my vhs tapes to Disk

I have done a lot of dubbing on my machine. First make sure the DVD is formatted. When you put in a new disc it should ask you if you want to initialize. Once that is done, switch to VCR mode. push play on the VCR then push the DUB button on the front of the machine. I hope it helps.
