I received a freebie DVD player but it won't play DVD it keeps saying no disc


The problem is in the laser pickup assembly, buy a DVD cleaning kit and follow instructions, it may help buy more time if not! replace the player not cost effective to repair.

CAN I RECORD FROM A VHS ONTO A CD OR DVD WITH MY STEREO?


In short, NO. Stereos are for playing not recording.

If your stereo has a DVD recorder and a video/audio input then you should be able to use it. I dont know of many stand alone "stereos" that do this. In general, stereos only deal with audio, but newer stereos and receivers can handle video as well, but usually are just PLAYERS not RECORDERS.

If not, then you will need to connect your VHS to a stand alone DVD recorder. You could also connect your VHS to a computer with the proper adapters (USB, firewire, etc) and software, and then record the VHS video to the computer. Afterwards you can then make a CD or DVD of the video.

A stand alone DVD recorder is much easier.

I Have a Memorex MVD 2047 DVD Player thats supposed to read DVD RW disks but it doesnt read them help?


Like you said the unit is capable of playing DVD RW and DVD-RW. However, some discs may not be compatible due to format of the files on the discs, software used and laser pickup. Some technologies used to record on discs can prevent optimal playback of the files by changing them which affects the ability of the player to read the file.<br /><br />If you are burning the discs, I would suggest you different software, make sure the video/audio files are being converted to a DVD format that can be played on stand alone players. <!-- from fixya rte -->

Can you record onto DVD from VHS with a Sony SLV-D950G1


Yes, I have the same player. However, I have it hooked to my computer to do so. I use Windows Media Center to do so. Just hook to it and play normally, the VCR while you are recording with the computer. Then, with Windows movie maker, I burn whatever it is to DVD. There are other software programs out there that can help if you do not have Windows Media Center or Movie Maker, such as Nero or Roxio. There are some freebie programs if you understand computers a bit more, from either CNet or Majorgeeks, two websites I get freebie software programs from, as well as learn from on what is good and the benefits/how to use. Hope this helps.

Blu-ray disc


Hey jude06,

In order to play Blu-Ray discs, you must unfortunately own a Blu-Ray player. Neither HD-DVD players nor Progressive Scan/Upconvert DVD players are capable of playing the discs, and standard DVD players are not able to recognize information on the discs due to how they are constructed.

Please keep in mind that there are always a number of options available to you, should you consider purchasing a Blu-Ray player. While the average asking price with many retailers for stand-alone Blu-Ray players is between $300.00 and $500.00, you can typically obtain an internal Blu-Ray drive for your computer for considerably less. Additionally, the Playstation 3 may also be a viable alternative - the current 40GB model not only plays Blu-Ray discs, but also has the added perk of being a video game console for around the same price as the average stand-alone Blu-Ray player.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

DVD PLAYS CD'S BUT WONT PLAY DVD'S


Aquarius0128 there are two things to consider here.. dvd's recorded on a computer need to be closed/finalized after you have recorded onto them in order to be used on a stand alone player.. they will play ok on original recorder because of the design of these machines finalizing prepares the structure of the disc so it can be recognised by other players as a dvd video disc.. you will usually see a 'finalize disc' option in your recording program

Second issue is this.. even if finalized an older (or even some modern) stand alone players will not recognise a recorded disc made on a computer or even if it can there are different formats DVD+R DVD-R and even DVD-RAM and DVD-RW (the two latter ones are rarely recognised outside a computer)
