I have old home movies on these tapes.. I am looking into buying the Pinacle Dazzle DVD Recorder (convert) will this convert my tapes to DVD? Does anyone know?

You already have Movies on TDK E-HG 120 VHS tapes; All you want is to Transform the media on the tapes into another record Media or on DVD.

The following process would make possible the project

1. A DVD Recorder device would transform the movies already on one media to another media.
Note: The recorder that would be acquired should have a feed area for the VHS tapes on one hand, to be played, while on the other hand, a DVD disk area from which disk medium would be recorded.

Important Notes.
The devices required to make the process achievable includes
1. The DVD Recorder or Player alsoo known with multi perpose functionality for signal convertion capability
2. The DVD recordable disks on which to record a movies onto.

The process of recording would require selection features determinable on the recorder device else would produce movies with undesireable features

For example; VHS movies are appear in decodeable formats integral when displayed on VHS players. The caution is to select a signal conversion format suitable for movies that have to transform between recordable media.

1. A DVD disk medium has formats as design specification and on which requires consideration when attempting to transfer multi media or motion pictures.

Type of formats of decodes
NTSA standards
PAL standards
Mescem standards

Whenever the option is available, select NTSA or PAL for appropiate code transformation

consult professional advise before acquiring an devices and mediums

If any consultation is required, refer to user guides or manuals of the devices in question.

Consult a technical expert when the need requires it.

I would like to have the tape converted to a disc for viewing, but don't have recorder equipment and stores claim that they don't provide service for same. Thank you.

You have two options. You can search online for software etc that will allow your VHS video to connect to your computer. And get it on to disc that way. Or ask around your neighbours to see if they have a VHS video/dvd recorder combination and pay them to do it for you!

Samsung sr150m dvd recorder, using discs panasonic dvd ram 120min 4.7gb rewritable. problem is that it stops recording after 20 seconds or so. like this from new. it does record sometimes. could it be poor...

First are you using the right kind of DVD recordable disc for your machine? For instance is it a + recorder and you are using - disc?
On the reception issue, can you see a good picture or does it break up sometimes. If it does break up it could make the recording stop. If you are using a digital TV signals, I suggest you get an aerial like below and hook it up with satellite co-axial cable.

VHS tape created in France

If it was made with the French standard you will need a machine capable of playing SECAM formats. Your cheapest way to go is to locate a video transfer business which deals in tape transfer. They should have the equipment which can play the tape and record it in a format which you can use. Cost should not be that much.

I have a sanyo 3 disc dvd changer. says no play

first of all you need to check your manuel for dvd's that can be played as in burnt. as of right no cd/dvd changers can play dvd that are burnt. cd's can be played if it states on player. only normal cd's and dvd's can be played. also check your disc for marks on them like fingerprints etc. if you want invest in a great player like sony, pioneer, i have no problem with these players.

Disc Read Error Sony DVD Handycam

Does your camera have other outputs, i.e., composite-video and L/R audio ?

If the disk "plays" inside your video-camera, then use a "video-capture" USB device, to "play" the movie into the USB device, and "record" from the USB device into your computer.

Formatting discs

Once the disc is FINALIZED, theres no way for the data to come off. If oyure burning from a computer, make sure you burn as DATA or AUDIO disk.......if the radio is MP3 compliant, then mp3 discs should work. The upside to mp3 discs is you can fit endless hours off music, but you loss sound quality from the compression.

CDs dont need to be "formatted" like hard drives or floppy discs. It's format is knows as red book, orange book......depending on the quality and manufacterer of the media.

If you have cheaper cds, like SONY, they can be problematic. Try TAIYO YUDEN or Microboards if you can get your hands on them.

Keep me posted.

Disc Read Error Sony DVD Handycam

I am just throwing these out there as food for thought. Make sure you ended the recording on that other side. If a DVD is left open(meaning more could be written to it) other dvd players have a hard time reading the info. Put in one of the 2 sided disc's that worked. how does the camera recognize the disc? Then insert the troubled disc and see if the disc info is being read the same. i.e. disk size, manufactuer, open/closed? Check for a firmware upgrade for your DVD burner/player(s). Let me know how things work out. Tim
