I need to copy,from a video camcorder to dvd,how can I do this.

Depending on what connections you have on your camcorder.
You can use a IEEE 1394 LEAD,or if your camcorder has only Phono connections then you can use those.
There will be the sockets,normally under a flap on the front of the DVD,the phono connections are normally marked AV3.
Hope this helps.

Try these steps:

Locate the output jacks DVD player. Sometimes they are standard female RCA A/V jacks, like those found on the front of many VCRs. Others are more tricky, having a small jack that looks like a stereo headphones plug. These camcorders require a special cord that converts a 1/8" stereo signal into RCA A/V male plugs.
  1. Using the proper cord, connect your PLAYER to the VCR's RCA A/V input jacks, usually found on the front or back of your VCR.
  2. Turn on your VCR and TV, so you can see the input from the camcorder. You might have to select "Input 1/2", "Line 1/2", or "VIDEO" depending on your VCR model. You should now see whatever is on your camcorder displayed on your television.
  3. Press "Record" on your VCR, then press "Play" on your camcorder. That's it!

No picture on the window

Possible that the flexible strip connection had been damaged and so the display does not seem to get the connection correct.
it will be necessary that you have the ability to open the display and camcorder main covers to see that the status of the connection wire.
if the strip seems to be good with continuity tested, then the fault can be failure of the power to the display- check power supply or the failure of the LCD display unit.

I can not select input source, even though AV1 is connected. Pressing INPUT button has no effect. All I can see is ''Not connected to the camcorder'', which is true - but I want to record from AV1.

Press INPUT repeatedly to select the external input
to record from.
AV1: Audio/Video Input mounted on back panel.
AV2: Audio/Video Input mounted on front panel.
DV: DV Input mounted on front panel.
DV IN jack.
This recorder is only compatible with DV-format
(DVC-SD, DV25) camcorders. Digital satellite tuners
and Digital video recorders are not compatible.
Make sure your cables are connected correctly, if an audio cable is plugged into the video the unit wont see it.

Dvd recorder has copy protected message


the tapes that you can,t copy are protected, manufacturers used to put a high pitched frequency on the tapes themselves, which would in theory cause a scrambled frequency. the only suggestion i have for you, is to play the tape onto a television, and use a camcorder to record the image from tv to camcorder, then camcorder to pc, and use some good editing software to create the dvd.
alternatively, you could try using a second dvd player, and use your recorder as the second device.
The final but more expensive option, is to look for a way to input the recorder, direct to PC. which you would use picture out, to graphics card input, and the red and white ( Audio ) for the stereo Sound output. does your player or tv have An spdif connection or similar, you may be able to output to camera, rather than to dvd.
Where theres a will, theres a way, but these are a few options.

Tracking seems off

I have had the same problem. There is no way to manually adjust the tracking on this Hitachi, or on most 8mm cameras, for that matter. I copied all of my more recent tapes to DVD first (2 copies of each) and then I went to the oldest tapes, which for some reason were OK. When I got to one tape that gave me trouble, I just let it play in the camcorder for about an hour. It adjusted its own tracking so that the picture was OK. Then, I rewound the tape and copied that one. I still have 2 tapes that will not adjust. I am going to send those out to a copying service. I hope they can adjust the tracking and make the copies I need.
By the way, I used this camera and a Panasonic DMR-E55 to make the DVD copies.

Magnavox MWR10D6 can't record from camcorder wrong channel

OK...try this...plug your RCA cables from your camcorder into the RCA input jacks on the back of the recorder. If you have a VCR, it can be plugged into the coax input on the back of the recorder. Use the coax output and plug it into a RF modulator (about $20 at Wal Mart). Plug the RCA output cables from the recorder into the RF modulator as well (Don't ask me why, but it seems to work on mine). Connect a coax cable from the RF modulator to the TV. Make sure the TV and Recorder are both on the right channel. The RF modulator will have a channel switch to use channel 3 or 4 on the TV. Make sure the recorder is set to E1 (Rear). You can check this with the channel +/- buttons on the bottom right of the remote. Good luck.

Recording Snow

If you hook your VCR up to the RCA jacks on the front of the DVD recorder, push 002 on the remote to use the front input jacks. (001 if you hook your VCR up to the rear input jacks)

Push record on the DVD recorder, and push Play on the VCR.
(Pg. 35 in the manual)

When you push play on the VCR, you should be able to see the movie being played on your TV. If you cannot, make sure your RCA cables are good and hooked up correctly.

That's all you have to do, so if it's not recording I would try to take the unit back for an exchange.

Creating a DVD from digital tape

i took my unit back to electronic express a chain here in tennessee

the guy was baffled at first

then he got a firewire and plugged it into the ilink place on the front of the unit and it copies my old canon recorded tapes just fine

what happened??? who the heck knows --- somehow the chip that prevents the movie copying was reading my old canon recorded tape as copyright -- this somehow bypasses that

if i am not mistaken you can buy attachments to make sure they fit your type of camcorder - my new sony hi def camera came with one - so i had no problem


i will never buy another sony in my life

i stil have not tried to tape movies to dvd and or vhs --- but i already have the machine so i'm stuck with it

what i'd like to know is which combo units do NOT have the blocking chip

could somebody update on the law about this


i hope this helps

please let me know
