    I have a R3930 that I'm trying to copy a VCR to DVD disc.

    The VCR tape is a homemade recording of a wedding.

    The DVD is a new, unused DVD-R disc with the DVD symbol on it.

    I put in the VCR and the DVD, turned on the VCR to the begining and then paused. I then pressed the copy button on the remote and the copy menu camr up. I highlited copy and hit enter. The unit appeared to start the copy because the rec light was lit. In about a minute the unit shut down. When I put the dvd into the unit is says "Unrecognized disk", then ejects it. This happened twice (2 unuseable discs).

When I insert a blank DVD+R to copy a VHS, It reads the disk, says "Unknown Disk" and ejects it. How do I record if I can't keep a disk in the machine?


some discs don't work in some recorders. I always use verbatim, ritek or tdk discs and have very few problems. if the recorder suddenly dislikes a batch of one brand, I'll use one of the others.

What speed of disk did you use? On my older machine if I use faster than 4X it will not accept the disk. Check out your disk an see if the record speed is to fast for the machine.

Unit does not recognize DVD-R and is ejected from the player


You may need to try a DVD+R disc. Some of the players/recorders are REALLY picky.

My computer says a finalized dvd made on govideo vr3930 is blank.


Sounds like your computer only reads certain disc's like dvd-r or dvd+r check to see if the burned disc is the same as the original? Second Could be that you really did not finalize? good luck, safety first..
