How can I record a music cassette to a music disc on my Magnavox DVD recorder/ VHS --Model # ZV427MG9

You can't burn a CD-A with the ZV427MG9. The unit will not burn to a CD to play in a CD player.

You may be able to record the audio to a DVD with no video source. Connect your cassette player to the Line In audio ports (L/R) at either the back or front of the unit. Depending on your cassette player, you may need a 3.5 mm M to RCA F/F adapter to connect the RCA audio cable to the cassette player's headphone jack. Do not connect a cable to the video input of the composite input unless you have a video on a camera or something to play back. This means that the recorded video may say "No Signal" or will be black or static. (Note: this may not work with this signal issue.)

Set the unit to record to DVD on L1 or L2, as needed, by pressing Source on your remote. Advance the cassette to where you want to record. Press Rec on the DVD unit and then press Play on your cassette player. If you want to identify tracks, Stop the recording and play back and then press Rec and Play again. You are at risk of having issues with the volume during the recording. Clipping of overly-loud sounds and distortion is possible.

When done, finalize the disc, if desired, to play the disc on other DVD players.

If you want to make an audio CD, you would be better off using a computer and connecting the cassette player to the Line In jack of the computer. You do have to make some adjustments to avoid recording the default Microphone input. Use a program like Audacity or any other audio editing program. Record the signal and divide it into tracks, if needed. Now you can filter out any distortion as well. Then save as a WAV file. Use a different program to burn the WAV files to a CD-A. (This must be burned as a mastered disc; my attempts that worked on an older CD player failed if there were gaps between the tracks. Lots of programs will do this; Roxio Creator is one option.)

The manual for the ZV427MG9 is available here: .

I hope this helps.

D-VR18DTKB - When dubbing from video to DVD is it possible to edit a section out without stopping the dubbing, winding tape on to clear the section and then go through the whole dubbing routine again ?...

Get sycronized because you're going to have to stop the video player and the CD you are dubbing onto at the exact second or have a glitch in it. I used to do weddings and other video services and used two sometimes three cameras. If I were you I could edit my video before I downloaded it to a master copy unless of course you have a hi-tech CD recorder with a built in dubbing feature. I didn't but one of my cameras did. I would make a rough video mixing different scenes from different cameras and get the scenes and angles where I wanted them in the video. When it looked right I usually edited music over it or narrated it, didn't have a CD player more less a recorder back then. If you are using a camera or a video recorder that will fade in and out use that feature to do your editing. It works perfect and looks good, If it fades in different colors use a color that kinda reflects on the previous scene or that will set up the next scene. When you get your tape like you want it burn it on to a DVD!. this will make a good master disk. I am going out on a limb and assuming that you are using video tape to do this, but if your using CD's the same principle applies. It can be a lot of fun and when you get good at it and get a computer with the right software you can move heads and add and replace people. If you have access to a computer you can download software for free that will let you do a professional of a rough CD to your master and it will do most of the work. Remember, if you copy a second generation Cd you can get pretty good quality but the more it's copied the more quality it looses. Good luck and have fun; dhgill

Is it possible to copy video from a vhs to a dvd?

If the DVD drive is a recorder, yes. If it is a player only, no. If the tape is copy-protected, recording to a DVD recorder is not possible. Assuming the tapes are not copy-protected, and you are using a DVD recorder with the correct format DVDs (DVD-R for example), you shouldn't have any problems transferring old VHS tapes to DVD.

Which disc can be used to recrord on ?

According to the user manual, the following DVD media you can record with this unit are:


DVD+R 2.4x, 4x, or 8x ONLY; DVD+RW 2.4x and 4x ONLY.

It is NOT possible to record on CD-R or CD-RW discs.
IMPORTANT: It is NOT possible to record content that is copy-protected. This is usually true for most pre-recorded DVD discs and most pre-recorded VHS tapes.


DVD discs - DVD movie discs (DVD-ROM); DVD+R; DVD+RW; DVD-RW (must be recorded using video mode or VM); DVD-R (must be recorded using video mode or VM and must be finalized).
CDs (Audio CDs, CD-R, CD-RW) - Audio CDs contain musical or sound content only. mp3 discs are CDs (CD-R or CD-RW)
that contain mp3 files. This product also plays CDs that contain JPEG files and Multisession CDs.
Video CD (VCD) and Super Video CD (S-VCD) discs - Like DVD video discs, VCDs contain picture and sound content. The difference is the amount of information that can be stored on the disc.
VCDs typically have lower picture and sound quality than DVD discs.
Super Video CDs (S-VCDs) can be used to record up to 70 minutes of digital sound and video, with MPEG-2 standard video and MPEG-1 standard audio-but you must use DVD+R or DVD+RW discs to record on your DVD/VCR not S-VCDs.
Additionally, S-VCD disc compatibility is dependent on which MPEG coding software, disc design software, and disc writer software are used; and the discs themselves.

(The above information is extracted from the user manual for this particular model and is a guide only)

I find it very strange that the user manual does not provide any information about DVD-R recording since this is a DVD recorder. I guess you could try those types of discs in it, otherwise it will playback finalised DVD-R discs recorded/burned in another machine.

I assume you have the original manual for this unit. If not, you may be able to download it free from various sites. (retrevo may have it but they may ask you for email address prior to downloading)

I hope the above information helps a tiny bit with regard to DVD formats for this unit.

This is going to be foolish but work for a family with the Go Video 3840 and when i try to dub a home video onto a DVD I press record and it shows that both are playing and recording but nothing transfers...

This means your DVD or Video Cass is copyrited and has what is called microfilm coating . This keeps you from transfering video and audio from one device to the next.

How to transfer Panasonic DMR-E80H recorded DVDs to computer

I have to agree with XELIAM regarding finishing the disk, under the DVD "FUNCTIONS" selection from the remote. I also use the SLYSOFT products to transfer my videos to what ever other mode of video I wish to have, whether iPOD (MP4), or DIVX (AVI) or loads of other options. Slysoft makes a GREAT product

Can't play the DVD from Panasonic

Sorry for your loss. If he transferred everything using his Panasonic recorder, it is possible that he never finalized the discs to be played in other machines. If you still have the Panasonic, put the disc in and press the Functions button on the remote ---> choose Other Functions from the screen --> Disc Management --> Finalize your disc. This is one of many possible reasons but a good start. Good Luck - Tamara

Record onto DVD

No. This machine only plays DVDs. You would have to obtain an entirely different machine. One that is a DVD Recorder. This one is a DVD Player + Video Cassette Recorder
