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?

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.

GoVideo DV2140 DVD/VCR Combo Player/Recorder can i copy vhs to dvd on this product


The GoVideo DV2140 does not contain a DVD writer. It can only play DVDs and copy them to VHS tape.

I wish that I had better news for you. The manual is available at ManualsLib here: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/61649/Govideo-Dv2140.html .

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.

Need to copy VHS to DVD. I have a Go Video DVR4200 model


The name of the GoVideo DVR4200 is a bit misleading. It is NOT a "DVR". It will only record DVD ->VCR and any "protected" DVD will not record. There are some hacks out there for this unit but be careful because some of them have been known to kill the DVD player.

The 4200 has been out for quite some time as I had bought one for a family member some years ago.

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.
