I'm not sure what you mean by your version 4.40W. Please elaborate on that.

I've seen a number of people who capture analog video and then simply burn the file to a DVD. They did not realize that this will not create a playable DVD. To create a playable DVD requires the video to be in a specific format and to be in a specific directory structure on the DVD. There are plenty of software packages out there that will take video files and transcode them to DVD format then burn them to the DVD in the right way.

One nice, easy to use, software package that does this called ConvertXtoDVD. You can download and use it for free, but I believe the free copy leaves a watermark on the video.

I hope this helps you. If you have more questions please give us more information on what the version 4.40W is.

DVD/VCR WILL NOT PLAY DVD DISCS


* check your warranty and call for service.(But it looks like this is a very old unit if it's a VCR/DVD combo.
* Pull plug and count to 10. Reconnect.
* check power lights. Does it say Ready, blinking time (12:00), any indication that power is on? No lights? Bad unit. Discard.
* If power okay, press open tray. Opens? Remove Disk. Insert "Known" working DVD (use a new store bought DVD that the kids did not play.) Press play.
* Is the disk reading? The DVD display should have changed while searching disk. No? Discard unit.
* Is it playing (the movie time should change as the movie plays). No video? Check cables to TV
* No sound? Check audio cables to TV (Red and White RCA Plugs)
* DVD and VCR plays disks or tapes but nothing on TV? Does the TV have an "Analog" input? Newer 2018 TVs may only accept Digital input like HDMI. A few may have the Video/Audio RCA plug input (usually used by the DVD player) though Digital TV's tend not to have this input.)
* You may need to have your old VCR tapes digitized (especially family tapes) There are "Analog to Digital" cable sets available at your electronics store or online at Amazon.com

* You may still find DVD players at thrift stores for under $20. I'm not sure if you can still find a new player.
* Try WalMart (Humm... no price given.)

Does my JVC HR-XVC33U have a disc burner or a reader only?


Greetings Lightfingers - Your unit is only capable of viewing DVDs and has no capability for burning DVD's

If you would like to burn DVDs you can buy a burner for a PC for about $20-25 USD at a place like newegg.com.

Regards and thanks for using Fix Ya.

Recording from video tape vhs to dvd discs


Should be straightforward: audio and video out from VCR goes to audio and video in on your DVD recorder. If using computer, they go into same inputs on AV card or dongle. Your AV capture software should take it from there.

Any DVD will work in most players, but some are quirky; if so, try DVD+R.

Commercially produced tapes usually have some form of copy protection that cannot be overcome without the use of third-party devices, which may or may not be legal. I'm no expert on copyright law, let alone a lawyer, so I don't know. I do know that if one has the rights to make a copy, devices in the class of "image stabilizers" seem to make it possible in many cases.

If you can capture it on the computer using a capture software, you can then burn the footage onto a dvd burner using a dvd burning software.

DCV-TRV460 Tranfer to DVD


Converting analog video, like from Hi-8, 8mm, and VHS to digital video is not as simple as plugging in a cable. If you happen to have a DVD recorder deck, you can burn a disc from the footage directly. Otherwise, you'll need to get some sort of capture device that converts the analog information to digital, then burn a DVD. I use a Hauppauge TV capture card, it converts signals from coaxial cable to digital on my hard drive. There are small, USB-based video capture devices readily available, some come with editing software, but you can always use Windows Movie Maker on a PC, or iMovie on a Mac.

Transferring analog to DVD


I envisage two options for you: 1. Install a video capture card in your pc. Choose one that has ports that match your analog camcorder ports. Best option: Separate capturing using S-video + a separate audio connection. Common and simpler option: Campture "composite" video using one video + one audio jacks. You don't need a new camera to make DVDs from your analog tapes. 2. Buy a pass-through (must be this type, not all digital cameras have this function!) digital camera. Connection and flow: analog camera (or your analog VHS VCR)to digital camera (via RCA cables); digital camera to pc (preferably using Firewire)- all simultaneously. Here, the digital camera will perform the function of a capture card. You will certainly need a software to capture via capture card/pass-through digital camera to your pc hard disc. Your captured video on pc can be initially in AVI/ DV AVI(better options to edit) and then convert to MPEG2 (DVD) format, or directly in mpeg format (with poor editability). Frame size (capture resolutions) should be as big as possible. In any case you will need some basic knowledge on digital video, capturing, and editing. And all the nitty-gritty that you will need to know can be found somewhere like "Digital Video Primer" and "DVD Primer".
