Make sure you are not using DVD+R dics - the player won't play these. It is OK with DVD-R.

Vhs to dvd

Get a TV card (PCI, USB or PCMCIA); plug an AV cable from the back of the VCR to the TV card, then use the software supplied with the TV card to write the input to an AVI file... The playback has to be 1 to 1,
write the AVI to a DVD using any DVD, or VCD creation software... If you want multiple copies copy the DVD, don't re-write it from the source material (it is quicker)... And then delete the source AVI.
If you don't have a TV card but have a digital camcorder see if it supports AV-IN. When you do this I go from my VCR to the camera then to a firewire port on the PC. The camera acts as a bridge. you can burn it with Nero 5.5xx Get very good results this way.

On page 45 of the user manual it says this:

Both the HDD & DVD RECORDER and the discs are coded
by region. These regional codes must match in order for the
disc to play. If the codes do not match, the disc will not play.
The Region Number for this HDD & DVD RECORDER is
described on the rear panel of the HDD & DVD RECORDER

If you changed the region codes on your player it will not work. They should be set back to 1 or whatever your model says on the back of the unit.

If this unit was purchased outside the United States, it may not work in the United States.

Here is a copy of the manual if you need it:

You need to convert the .avi files to the MPEG format with software. Just renaming the file will not work.
