Copy a vhs to a dvd on govideo dvr4200

When this player was bought we thought we understood that we could record all our old vhs tapes onto dvds. In the users guide it explaines how to copy from dvd to vhs but not the other way around. Anyone have an answer?

Re: copy a vhs to a dvd on govideo dvr4200

This model is a DVD player only. It does not record to DVD's. You would need to get a model that has a DVD recorder.

Why won't the Sony controls let me click onto finalize using a Sony TV w/recoder to transfer VHS to DVD?

Is the VHS tape you are trying to record a commercial VHS tape (movie)? If so, it may have copy protection on it. The recorder is probably programmed to prevent you from making and using DVDs of commercial copy-protected VHS tapes.

I have Magnavox DVD player/vcr DV225MG9, does it record from vhs onto dvds? And if not, what do I need to get so that I can copy all of these old vhs movies to dvds?

it won't record dvd's its only a dvd player. only the vcr records
if the vhs movies your trying to record are movies like star wars and stuff like that it's copy protected and no worth the trouble. if it's home movies or something you recorded from tv they might work. if you get a dvd recorder/vhs player.

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.

I just bought a magnavox DV225MG9 A player . The salesman said it could copy vhs tapes to dvd. how do I do this with this machine?

If this is the correct model number, magnavox DV225MG9, above, this unit is only a DVD player not a DVD recorder. It won't dub DVDs to VHS either.

I wish that I could be more help.

How to record a VHS tape to a DVD disc

Read your manual first to make sure the unit will do this.If it does chances are it won't record unless it has a decoder built in.Most VHS tapes have macrovision protection that prevents you from copying them.It will however,record homemade VHS tapes.There are decoders out there you can buy to enable you to copy VHS tapes.

Recorded DVDs will not play on other DVD players

Some DVD players have a protection which keeps you from playing copy writed DVD's even if it's on the DVD-R's. Most of the latest DVD players within the past 3-4yrs have this intergraded into it. In that case, your recorder is really working you just need a DVD player that supports your recorded dvd's vs. non-recorded ones.

Have you also tried to play those DVD's on a media center/system on your pc or computer? That might also help you decipher if it's really the burner or the DVD players as well...

Let us know how it goes. Hope this helps..unfortunately when the DVD player has that prevention already intergraded internally there is no way to remove it..its just how it comes.

Vhs to dvd burning

You cannot burn a DVD on the XBV243. It is NOT a DVD recorder. You CAN record onto a VHS tape from a DVD (copy-protected commercial DVDs cannot be recorded)

HELP! I can't figure out how to Connect my Sylvania DVD/VCR Combo to my older TV

Even if you do get it connected you cannot copy from vhs to dvd as you have bought a vcr recorder with dvd player, not a dvd recorder. You can only record to the vcr tape from a dvd, in the players controls.
