Creating DVD from VHS no sound on DVD.

I am getting no sound after creating a DVD from a VHS tape with my VRD-VC20. The video comes out fine but I get no sound. There is no mute on and the sound is fine on the video while the DVD is being created. What could be the problem?

Re: Creating DVD from VHS no sound on DVD.

Make sure the sound (red and white) connecters are plugged in and out from tv or vcr to in on recorder. I have four of these units and have had no trouble.

Needs driver for vista or win 7 Sony VRD-VC10 DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner

Sony does not support this burner for any operating system for Win2k and XP. The VRD-VC30 is supported in Win7 but no earlier models (from the Microsoft Compatibility Center). The Vista Compatibility Center lists the VRD-VC20 as unknown for Vista support.

There are work-arounds. Install XP as a virtual computer or in a dual boot configuration on your system and install the hardware on the "XP box". If you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate, you can download and install the XP mode for a free virtual computer. (This requires you to download two programs from Microsoft and install them (Virtual PC and the XP mode itself). Otherwise, you will need a valid XP license to install in the virtual computer software. The dual boot may work better for you since virtual computers can't share files from the main computer directly. They need to be transfered to external media or a different partition or disc that unmounted from the real computer and mounted on the virtual computer.

I hope this helps.

Try checking the right audio cable because the music comes through on the right and the narration comes out on the left. Try unplugging and replugging the red audio cable. If that dosent not work try another cable. PS: If I have helped you please say "yes" to the question bellow

Burn dvd from vhs

i'm assuming you have a vcr to play your vhs tapes, just plug your audio/video cord from your vcr(out), plug into the audio/video vc10(in), start playing vcr and press rec botton whenever you want to start to record. make sure you can only use dvd+r. choose the quality for the length of time, at the end press 'function' to finalize the disc, then you are done.

Go to the company which made the software for the device and you can download it from there. That is what I did. You need to up grade from what came with the unit.

"Finalize Error" Sony DVDirect VRD-VC20

I had similar problem (I have same model of Sony) on my dvr trying to record some movies, in my case it would start recording for a sec and then it would stop, problem in my case is that some of channels on satelite are scrambled and id doesn't allow even that they were stored on my dvr to get them on dvd drive, you can get descrambler on ebay but I just gave up cause it's too much hassle. Maybe you have similar problem cause I don't know who is your tv provider. Does your drive work on pc??? If so probably it is protection that is messing with your finallazing! I hope you find this helpful! By the way check my problem if you have any idea how to solve it I would very appreciate it! Nick
