Hi,

Here's the reason;

The problem is, not all players play all types of burnable DVD. Yours may not play +R, or it could just be that the burning process didn't work right. Some DVD players don't play any burnable DVDs.

If you have the documentation for the DVD player, it might tell you which types it plays, if it isn't too old.

If it is older or you don't have documentation, it might still play certain types of DVDs. Check out: http://www.videohelp.com/dvdplayers. You can search by your model of DVD player. It shows compatability of DVD Players to types of Burnable DVDs. It may take you a few minutes to puruse that file.

Once you find the DVD type that works with your player, go to this site: http://www.digitalfaq.com/media/dvdmedia.htm. It has a table where it shows the best writable DVDs to buy. Unfortunately, there is a lot of quality difference and sometimes the quality or longevity of the disks vary a lot. You want a good disk because cheap ones don't work very well and sometimes don't last very long. It would be a shame to lose the video because of a cheap disk.

Having said all that, DVD-R is usually the most common type that works with most DVD players. It is also the most reliable when it comes to long term storage and successful burning. You could go buy one of those and it might work.

Please go through the article which mentions the process to copy vhs to dvd.

Suggestion: Try Panasonic DMR-EZ47V or DMR-EZ475V VHS/DVD combo. It has both analog and digital tuner. Easy one touch transfer VHS to DVD.

Thank You

I had a similar problem with a Cannon Optura PI and had to send it in. It was better, but I still have problems on occasion. If your intent is to transfer all the tapes to media, I would suggest purchasing Toshiba's DVD Video Recorder/Video Cassette Recorder. Model: DVR620KU. I use a VHS-C Cassette Adapter to play my VHS-C tapes in and the dubbed them to a DVD. Works great. Unfortunately, there is no 8mm/VHS Adapters, since 8mm, Hi8, miniDV are different formats with different technical characteristics than VHS. These formats were never developed with the intention to be mechanically compatible with past or current VHS technology. Your best bet would to borrow a HI-8 Camcorder and then dub your tapes to DVD's using the Toshiba machine. Here is a link to the Toshiba machine. http://www.testfreaks.com/dvd-players-recorders/toshiba-dvr620/
Good luck

Select AV-1 or some thing in TV and plug DVD recorder Video-Audio output in AV-1 input of TV, playback any DVD and confirm its picture and sound in TV. Press Stop button of DVD recorder to stop playback.
Now plug Video-Audio output of VCR in DVD recorder input and select AV Input in DVD recorder, insert VHS tape in VCR and playback it and confirm you get VHS picture and sound in TV via DVD recorder.

Playback VHS tape in VCR, Insert blank DVD disc in DVD recorder and press Record while you see VHS tape picture in TV.
Hope this info will help you.

DVD recorded discs (from VHS) do not play on other dvd players


I called the manufacturer. They admitted to improper instructions. They provided me a fix to their copying protocol and it worked. Also, they game me instructions on how to fix already copied tapes. It works well and I would have to say I was impressed with their customer/technical service.
