Question about Sony DVDirect VRD-MC3 DVD Recorder
After i connected my camcorder to the dvd recorder and everything is on, the screen on the dvd recorder says waiting for signal input. why is this? can anyone help me? also, there is not number to call if you are having problems. i just bought this product and it does not work. please help!! thank you in advance!
It's a protected video. The VRD-MC5 will not burn a VHS or input that has been protected.

I'm experiencing the same problem you are. My company purchased this (before I worked here). The product says it's designed to copy home VHS videos to DVD. I have an old recording that does not have any copy protection because it was a home video-type recording and even though the image is almost perfect, every time you hit record the image cuts out and it says waiting for input signal.
So basically the way SONY marketed this product is incorrect. It would have been better if we had purchased one of the low-tech DVD recorders at WalMart for this, they don't wait for a perfectly clean analog signal before recording to DVD.
The device is useless to us.
