Problem dubbing VCR - DVD

I own the SR90VE recorder and am having a problem copying from VCR to DVD. I have done it in the past, but after following proper steps, then pressing Dubbing button, the dubbing VCR - DVD light flashes a few times, then stops, leaving the VCR tape on pause. We are using DVD-RW 4x discs. Please advise. This is very frustrating...

I have 3 of these machines. I do not think it likes theRW disc's. Two of my machines are 4X & one is 8X. I have very great success with 4X DVD-R & 8X DVD-R disc's. I hear they have a fix for upgrading to 8X speed. Here is the link with the information:

You can still buy the 8X speed disc's on the internet. Hope you can get the machine to work, because I love the ones I have.

Lost manual for DVD Recorder/VCR ZV450MW8 Need instructions to copy DVD Disk to VDD Disk or e-mail manual


To dub a DVD, first press Setup on the remote. Then select Recording (use the Up/Down arrows and then press OK). Navigate to and select Dubbing Mode. Select the direction for the duplication. Then press Setup to leave the Setup menu. Then press DVD to ensure that the unit is ready to play the DVD. (Press VCR if you are dubbing a video tape.) Then Press Play to advance to the section that you wish to duplicate, if needed, and then press Pause. (Press Pause a bit early; the dubbing process will lose about 5 seconds.) Now, press the other Mode button (VCR if recording to tape, DVD if recording to DVD). Next press D.Dubbing on the recorder or the remote. (The button is to the right of the Channel Up/Down buttons on the recorder. It's near the bottom left on the remote.) Press Stop when the section to be duplicated has been played in its entirety.

The Magnavox ZV450MW8 was manufactured by Funai with the Magnavox name. Thus Funai Service has the manual available: http://www.funaiservice.com/manual2012_search2.php . The direct link is http://www.funaiservice.com/manuals/MAGNAVOX/ZV450MW8/ZV450MW8.pdf . The directions for dubbing a DVD to VCR or vice versa start on page 48. Note: copy protected items cannot be duplicated.

I hope this helps.

I need to copya vhs to a dvd. Can you give the steps one by one please?


Can you provide the model of DVD/VCR player? Not all models do this.

For the ones that can, you need to use the Dub feature. Put a blank DVD (or one with sufficient space) in the DVD tray; initialize the disc if you are using a rewritable disc (RW). Then put the VHS tape into the VCR (you may want to break off the write protection tab). Then set the unit to VCR mode and forwared the tape to the desired recording point (copy-protected tapes can't be copied). Then some models have a dub or copy button on the unit and/or on the remote (press it and follow the onscreen prompts to select VCR to DVD, recording quality and press Enter to start). The copying will stop when you press Stop or run out of space on the DVD. On some models, you need to do this with the on-screen menus. For those, the look for a Dub feature (where it is will vary in the menus - usually in the same submenu as timed recording) and then select VCR to DVD and the rest.

I hope this helps.

(I'll be glad to provide more information if you provide a specific model. I've worked with several brands and there are some differences in the setup routine. My current unit is a Zenith with a Copy button on both the front panel and the remote.)

How do I transfer a video from vcr to dvd on magnavok dvd/vcr recorder ?


Use the Dub video feature. This will work if the source is not copy protected. Make sure you have a writable (or rewritable) DVD with sufficient space available in the DVD tray (closed) and put your tape to dub in the VCR.

Press Setup on the remote and navigate down (up/down arrows) to Recording and press OK. Then select Dubbing Mode in the next menu level and press OK. When the Option menu opens, highlight VCR to DVD and press OK. Press Setup to exit this menu. Choose a recording mode using REC MODE on the remote. Press Play and then Pause when you reach the point where you want to start the recording (press quickly if you want to dub the whole tape; you will lose a few seconds while the dubbing starts so include 5 seconds extra if starting later in the tape). Then press Dubbing on the remote. The duplication will start. Press Stop when you reach the end of the section to record.

I hope this helps.

(only the Setup and Rec Mode buttons do not have a matching button on the front of the unit. The later steps (setting up the start point, starting the Dub and stopping it) can be done with the remote or the buttons on the unit.)

VCR DVD Recorder not dubbing


I called the manufacturer and realized I was using the wrong type of recordable DVD disc to dub to. Non copy protected VHS tapes dub just fine as long as I'm using the proper disc.
