Did you finalize the DVD disc after you recorded it? If not put it back into the unit and Finalize it P.27 manual " Setting the Disc" and it should play in all playback units. DD

Can the sansui vcr/dvd combo record vcr tapes to a dvd?

No, the DVD section only plays DVDs, to record VCR tapes to DVD you need a ripping device that digitalize audio and video (convert step) and then transfer to DVD specifications this data to disk (record step). The easiest way to do this is using a USB video capture adapter connected to your PC with a DVD recorder drive installed, the software to do this commonly comes as a bonus in the setup disk of the adapter.

Cannot format a dvd-rw disc or record to the disc.

Unless you posted this question in the wrong category, you can't use the Sansui VRDVD4000 to record to DVD. It is a DVD player only, not a DVD burner. It will play and record VHS tapes, but with DVDs it will only play them.

To record to a DVD, you would need a DVD burner. Many modern computers include a DVD burner, so maybe either your computer or someone you know's computer has a DVD burner.

Recorded DVD won't play on computer or other players

Yes it might be the format of the recorded dvd, check in which format it is and you can then download the codecs for your PC movie player via google. If you can give me the format I can try and find you a link to the codecs you need if you like.

Playing recorded DVDs on PC or other DVD player

Recordings from your DVD recorder should play on other DVD players as long as you finalize the recording on your recorder.

A PC should recognise an un-finalized, but only in a DVD writer drive.

There is a firmware upgrade available for this model. Follow this link and select your particular country version DVDR3320/XX||type=CONSUMER||locale=gb_en||mode=prod_text||item=dvdr3320v||page=1||show=50&xsl=search_result.xsl

Select Software & Drivers and click on the link to the zip file.

Follow the on-screen instructions.

Goodmans home dvd recorder

Make sure the DVD has been finalised. When you finalise a DVD the recorder puts all the disc content information at the start of the disc so that any device you put it into can find out what is on the disc without scanning through 4.7 Gigs of data, (which would take so long it would drive people mad everytime they put a disc into anything). Because the table has not been written the PC cannot see what is on the Disc.
Another possible answer: some makes, Orion for one have a Virtual Record mode that it was not possible to play in any other device.
And Orion do make products for Goodmans.
Most likely the first answer though.

Aquarius0128 there are two things to consider here.. dvd's recorded on a computer need to be closed/finalized after you have recorded onto them in order to be used on a stand alone player.. they will play ok on original recorder because of the design of these machines finalizing prepares the structure of the disc so it can be recognised by other players as a dvd video disc.. you will usually see a 'finalize disc' option in your recording program

Second issue is this.. even if finalized an older (or even some modern) stand alone players will not recognise a recorded disc made on a computer or even if it can there are different formats DVD+R DVD-R and even DVD-RAM and DVD-RW (the two latter ones are rarely recognised outside a computer)

Video recorded on a DVD-R does not want to play in my DVD player

some players will read vcd some won't. also your dvd that your using could be a problem some dvd players don't like some dvd media try tayo yuden's they are the #1 choice for dvd media.

However, try burning the disk into DVD format not VCD this way you will know if it's the media or the video type that your player doesn't like.
