Question about Magnavox ZV427MG9 DVD Recorder VCR

1 Answer

I have a magnavox ZV427MG9A DVD/VHS recorder. Recently I deleted all the titles/programs that I no longer needed so that I could reuse the disc for recording. I was able to record two programs fine, but when I went to record on the next program, the recording stopped after about 8 minutes. The disc showed that there was 4 hours of recording time left, and I did record on the correct speed to allow this, but the recording time would not go past approx. 8 minutes. And after that time, a message appeared saying "recording error: cannot record on this disc". Why this didn't appear before I went through the recording setup is strange--would have saved me alot of time and frustration. Any idea why I couldn't record past the first program, even though there was sufficient recording time, according to the disc?

Sorry to bother you sirs, but it seems that you know much about DVD Camcord playback problem. I have a question about my camcord video output format may i ask. I have a vro file that can'tbe recognized by my VLC player, so I use this VRO mp4 converter([url]http://www.videoconverterfactory.com/tips/vro-converter.html[/url] to convert the vro file to mp4. After that conversion process the .VRO file can be played again, but I do not know why the output has no audio output, no sound. Do you ever met such a kind of problem? VLC can play .VOB very well because I have checked. It should be similar to .VOB, but why VRO cannot be recognized by VLC Media Player, it doesn't make any sense. Is there any free and simple method to directly run .VRO file on my PC without using any third-party video conver

Hi,

For recording purpose it is required to connect the Direct TV box to the VCR/DVD Combo unit and then to the TV using the analog Red, White and Yellow cables.
It is required to select the proper input to record in the Direct TV box and then press the Record button in the VCR/DVD Combo unit for recording the selected inputs.
To record using the Direct TV remote, it is required to program the Remote to control the other units. All the functions like recording may not work with the universal remotes. It is suggested to use the original remote for recording purpose.
Please feel free to get back to us for further assistance.
Thanks for contacting FixYa.

Dubbing does the media transfer automatically, not by playback and record. you select vcr to dvd then do dubbing. Please read the manual. and try all the controls.

I have dubbed vcr tape to a Sony DVD-RW disc and tried playing it back through a toshiba player and it keeps coming up Bad Disk. My PC won't even recognise it. When started dubbing the screen displayed 1hr...


Did you say you used a DVD-RW disc to transfer a videotape onto? The reason your PC won't recognise that disc is because the data format on it is a different language to what PCs understand - plus an unfinalised DVD-RW won't play in other DVD players - it is usually an incompatible format.

(DVD+RW discs with titles/top menus created in video mode CAN be played on a PC DVD drive or a normal DVD player as can finalised DVD-R discs (DVD-R discs MUST be recorded and finalised in the same recorder for compatible playback). DVD-RW discs can only be viewed on the unit they were written/recorded on.

The other reason for the 'remaining space' on the disc you describe showing less than 120 minutes is due to a title recently being recorded or erased - unless you format it - the 120 minute / 4.7GB DVD-RW will not show full available space. Erasing titles on re-writable DVDs does not increase space. The same rule applies to unfinalised +R / -R discs (you cannot re-format these to get the space back once recorded - they are 'once only' writables)

I recommend you invest in some DVD-R discs and re-copy your VHS tape to that - then if you are satisfied with the result, title etc., finalise the DVD-R - it will play on any DVD player or PC with DVD support (or it should). These discs are relatively inexpensive to buy just about anywhere.

Final note: do NOT finalise the DVD-RW you recorded (I hope you haven't already done this) - simply format/erase it - re-use it for something else or keep it until you need it.

You can use any brand of DVD, just take note of the format before recording/playing.

Recording from VHS to DVD


First, you will need to know if the program was recorded in XP mode, SP mode, LP mode, or EP mode. To find out how much room there is left, put the dvd in the tray and press the Disc Menu/List button on the JVC remote. This will display the title and how long it is - write that number down. It will also say either "XP,SP, LP, or EP" - write down that mode. In XP mode, a DVD will hold 1 hr and 20 mins worth of prgramming - MAXIMUM. SP mode = 2 hours. LP mode = 4 hours. EP = 6 hours. So, if your program is one hour, and you recorded in LP mode, you have 4 - 1 = 3 hours of space left for recording on that disc.

If you finalize a disc, you will no longer be able to add more programs to that disc, unless the disc is a + or - RW disc. Also note that finalization requires some disc space, so if you recorded a program that is exactly 1hr and 20 mins long, and you recorded it in XP mode, then the disc will probably not finalize correctly.

That being said, the finalization directions are on p. 23 of your manaul: Title --> Finalize --> => --> find finalize --> Enter --> OK --> Enter

Now it will play on other players.

Sony dvd rdr gx300 failure to delete discs


You can delete titles on a DVD+/-R, but it will not free up disc space. These are not "rewritable (RW)" disks.

To reuse discs, start with a DVD +/-RW. Be sure to format it "VR," not "Video."
