Re: dvd recordings from dvd-vr357

Is there a way to finalize a copied DVD not using the remote control? I bought an open-box VR-357 without the remote control.

Here is the owner's manual for your DVD machine. This is a VHS recorder but not a DVD recorder. To record VHS tapes to DVDs, you will need a DVD recorder.
You will plug the yellow video out connector on the VHS to the yellow 'Video in' connector on the DVD Recorder. Do the same for the red and white audio connections, out on the VHS, IN on the DVD Recorder. Connect your TV to the DVD recorder so you can see the picture you are recording.

Samsung dvd vr-357; recorded DVD only plays on the player

You have to "Finalize" the disc before it will play on other units. Go to Disc Menu, Second choice listed(not in front of it right now) Selections to right will offer disc Finalize. Say YES.

If exact model is Samsung DVD-VR357, than it doesn't even has to recognise blank disc as your unit is DVD PLAYER with Video Casette Recorder.

See Specs. for your unit below:
Function Combination VCR Y Compatibility Playback Media DVD-R,DVD-RW,DVD+R,DVD+RW,CD-R/RW,CD,VHS, DVD-RAM Playback Formats MP3, WMA, JPEG, MPEG-4, DivX A/V Quality Progressive Scan Y HD Upconversion 720p/1080i Digital-to-Analog Converter 10-Bit/54MHz DTS Output Y Dolby Digital Surround Sound Y Connectivity HDMI CEC Y Convenience Child Protection Parental Control Physical Features Connectivity HDMI Output Y Component Video Output 1(Rear) S-Video Output 1(Rear) Composite Video Output 1(Rear) Coaxial Digital Audio Outputs 1(Rear) Optical Audio Output 1(Rear) Product Weight & Dimensions Dimension 16.9" x 3.1" x 11" Weight 8.8Lbs. Shipment Weight & Dimensions Dimension 20.2" x 7.1" x 15.1" Weight 12.1Lbs.

Closest model match for DVD recording unit would be DVD-VR375

Unfortunately you have player only and you won't be able to recor DVDs with it whatsoever.

Good luck

I do this all the time. Press Menu on your remote control. From there go to Copy then select VCR-->DVD. If you're recording from the beginning of a tape just press the Enter button. If you're recording from another place on the tape hit Play or FF to advance you to the spot you want to start recording. Stop the tape where you want to record from and hit Enter. FF to the place on the tape where you want your recording to stop. Stop the tape where you want the recording to end and hit Enter. Hit the Down Arrow on the remote control to highlight Copy All and hit Enter. Your machine will rewind to the start point and begin recording and it will stop when you get to the indicated end point. Note: If you have more than one episode/show on a VHS tape and you want separate titles for each, you have to go through this process for each title. If you have more than one start and end point for each copy command you'll just get different chapters not different titles. I hope that made sense!!! Hope this helps you out.

Samsung DVD-V$357 recorded dvds won't play on other machines

Did you finalize the disk? If not, this should solve your problem. When the disk is finalized you should be able to play it on your computer if you can play other DVDs on it. Some other DVD players can only play specific disks (i.e. DVD-R, DVD+R). This may be another problem.

DVD-VR357: Copy multiple vhs tapes to one DVD?

Try using DVD/RW disks with pausing the recording when you change VHS tapes.

Backup my vhs tapes

First hook up the VR357 to the TV with any cable ..
Then put a VCR tape into the VHS player.. get the tape to where you want to start the recording and press stop.
Then put a blank DVD in (-r or -rw is the best)
Then press VCR on the remote
Then press TO DVD on remote
you will see the word COPY come up on the DVD player and the VHS tape will start to play.
When you are done just press stop twice. and you will get a message that says "updating information to disk"
