Some VHS tapes have copyright signals embedded in them. Then when the DVD recorder reads the copyright signal it will stop recording due to it thinking there is a copyright violation happening. Try testing with a VHS TAPE of a show you have recorded off the TV and see if it does the same thing .,
Make sure the materials you're trying to record onto the DVD
is not Copyrighted. Try to record a normal TV program onto your
VHS, transfer it to your DVD and then play it. See if that will
work. A VHS movie is usually Copyrighted and Protected by
Macrovision. The picture output can be displayed on a TV set
for viewing but is scrambled black to a DVD Recorder.
Well it depends on what you're recording. If you're trying to record from the T.V. your going to have issues because of the recent switch to digital. If you're recording from homemade VHS to DVD however just put in your VHS, then your blank DVD and hit record. There should be some on screen instructions displayed.
Hope it Helps!
Also you'll probably also have issues trying to convert your old VHS movie collection to DVD because most of the movies would probably be copyright protected.
Buy a 'VICE 1000' hardware unit, which overrides copyright protection, both on DVD and VHS.
Connect between player and hard-drive on DVD recorder.
Thoroughly, and utterly illegal and carries heavy penalties, for breaches of copyright.
I'm not sure if this is the answer, but I have the same unit and in the directions it mentions not being able to record anything from a copyrighted source. I would assume Disney products are copyrighted and might have a feature that prevents these machines from accepting the signal.
Key thing to remember when recording anything is the following:
1. Color to color on the back of the machine
Sound - White and red
2. Make sure your source is output and the recorder is input.
3. Be sure that it is original content that you are trying to record ie make sure you are recording from a VHS that is "Kids do Beauty and the Beast for 5th grade play" and not "Disney Beauty and The Beast"
