Can I transfer VHS to DVD on the Philips DVP3345VB? If so, how? The salesman at the store told me I could, but the directions are only for VHS to DVD. (The "Helpful Hints" mention VHS to DVD...

From the information provided by Philips for this model, it appears you can copy DVD to VHS (if the DVD is not copy protected), but not the other way round. The DVD section is a player only, not a recorder. The unit would need a DVD recorder to be able to transfer from VHS to DVD.

You can find information and manuals to download if you go to the following URL:

If yours is a DVP3345VB, I think the sales guy may have got his wires crossed.

How do i record a vhs to dvd?

Unfortunately you are not able to record a VHS to DVD on this player.
It does not have the capability to record DVDs, in order to do that, you will need a DVDr
(DVD Recorder)

Hope you found this helpful.

I would like to know if it is possible to copy two vhs movies onto one dvd disk.

Yes, this should be possible, as long as the VHS movies are not copyright protected. Just make sure that the recording mode on the dvd is set to allow enough time for both movies. Just remember: the more you record onto a single disc, the quality of the dubbing (recording of VHS to DVD) is decreased.

I have a Magnavox ZV427MG9. I follow all directions in manual for dubbing VHS home movies to DVD but when I try to play the DVD back there's nothing on them.What am I doing wrong?

Depending on the procedure you may be pressing the record button instead of the D.Dubbing or Dubbing button. When recording from VHS to DVD you must first, load the blank DVD and VHS home movies, then play the VHS movies, then PAUSE the VHS movie when you want to START recording... then the only the you have to do is pressing the D.Dubbing button or the Dubbing button. If your VHS tapes starts to play after the Dubbing button is pressed you have been successful in Dubbing.

Recording dvd's

As long as the tapes do not have a copy gaurd on them they should record to the dvd. Home moves, tv shows that were recorded or unprotected tapes can also be dubbed.

Cannot do this on a combo unit. There is a chip that senses copy protection and prevents recording a copy-protected DVD to a VHS and vice-versa. Solution: Use an outboard DVD player or an outboard VHS VCR and try the recording with the video routed through a "stabilizer" box. The stabilizer (about $30 or less on Ebay) defeats the copy protection on MOST DVDs, but not all. It works with Netflix DVDs. Route the audio as usual. Audio is not protected.

I've purchased a philips dvd videoplayer, dvp3350v/05, with the aim of being able to copy from video to dvd...having read the manual though, it reads like the only copying it will do is from dvd to...

The DVP3350V/05 is a DVD player / Video recorder combi, so will only play DVDs, not record on to them.

You will need a Philips DVDR3510V or DVDR3512V, to record from VHS to DVD. should have them in stock, if not contact them for availability.

Also, most pre-recorded VHS tapes are copy protected, so you may experience picture rolling and colour fading in & out on any copies you make.
Any VHS tapes you have recorded yourself will not have this copy protection, and will copy ok.
