Re: dubbing rom hdd to dvd

I sometimes have the same problem. Try switching off the Recorder with the disc still in. Switch it back on and select DVD again and the initialize screen should appear

Re: dubbing rom hdd to dvd

All you have to do is select dvd on the remote (at the top). Then it should do it automatically. If it doesn't, go to menu, then setup, disk, format. That does the job.

How do you record dvd to vhs and from vhs to dvd

For VHS to DVD, put the tape to dub in the VHS slot and a blank DVD in the DVD tray. Make sure the DVD is compatible with the DVD recorder (see the recommended disc list) and is unfinalized if you are using a R/W disc. Close the tray. Set the unit to VCR mode with the DVD/VCR button. Advance the tape to the place that you want the recording to start. Then press the Dubbing button (either on the remote or the unit itself). Select the recording mode (SP, LP etc), highlight Dubbing then press Enter or Dubbing. Press Stop to interrupt the recording.

For DVD to VHS, put a blank tape in the VCR (make sure the protection tab has not been broken off) and the DVD to duplicate in the DVD tray and close the tray. Put the unit in DVD mode by pressing the DVD/VCR button. Find the point at which you want to start recording the DVD. Again press Dubbing and set up the recording mode and highlight Dubbing and press Enter or Dubbing.

Note that copyprotected content can not be recorded.

The manual for this recorder is on the right side of the page here: . See page 48 for the screen captures of setting the recording mode part of the dubbing procedure.

I hope this helps.

I have a Magnavox H2160MW9 A. It has a dubbing feature and says I can copy from HDD to DVD. But when I follow the instructions "Selected Title Dubbing", The dubbing selection is grayed out. Note that I'm...

Choose Dub on remote. Choose HDD to DVD. When you are looking at your HDD Titles, move the cursor (the highlighted box, using the left/right buttons on your remote) to the title you want to Dub. Hit the OK button on your remote. Then hit the Dubbing button on your remote. If you are ready to record, move cursor down to Start Dubbing. Choose speed, then hit OK button.

Will not dub to dvd-r from HDD in high speed mode

It will only high speed dub in the speed it was recorded in. You can dub, for example, SP on your hard drive to SP on a DVD. You cannot dub high speed, for example, SP on your hard drive to LP on a DVD.

I have a hdd/dvd recorder model rh7880/rh7500 set timer recording to record onto dvd, machine switched itself on as normal but did not start to record and froze up.cannot get anything to respond either...

Recorder wasn't under warranty, so opened the unit up removed the dvd - rw disc ,which was corrupted as it turns out, put the machine back together switched it on and it worked perfectly.I have since tested it by recording both on to dvd,hdd and used the dubbing format and have had no problems.In the future I would recommend bying only top quality discs as it seems a dodgy one was responsible.

LG HDD/DVD Recorder Model: RH265

What you need to do is to put in your dvd that you wish to copy onto and then press the DVD button on your remote control. (this is next to the HDD button which is under the POWER button) Then follow the on screen prompts and instructions in the owners manual. I had the same problem but found the solution by mistake!

Hope this helps,

LG RH265 - Problem when trying to register blank disk/dubbing

The DVD needs to initialise the disk first. Come out of the HDD dubbing menu and press DVD on the remote. The blank recordable disk should be recognised and you should see Initialise disk? on the screen. Press Start and hey presto, you can now dub from the HDD Movie dubbing menu (as per the manual instructions).

DVD Burning doesn't Disc in Setup..

Been checking out my m/c and found that there are many -r & -rw discs the m/c does not recognise which gives rise to this problem. However the m/c does recognise VERBATIM discs and I have been able to record and dub to them with no problems.

Lg rh266 recorder

When you put your disc in and its ready for copying over through Dubbing - when you see the quality ie xp - just press right or left til the FAST sign comes up. it maynot always come up if the recording time is any longer than an hour or less than 30 mins.

pg 47 of your manual
