Re: VHS TO CD NOT COMPATIBLE
Do you mean DVD or CD. Some DVD players won't play CD Videos. If it's on a DVD then maybe you need to finalize the disk. That means ** further recording on that disk but it will be more compatible with other players.

how long have you been using the player and has it ever accept blank DVD-R discs in the past.
The problem might be as a result of weak laser (lens) or the blank discs inserted might not be compatible with player.
the laser(lens) of a player becomes weak, it will not be able to read
blank discs. It only takes a very strong laser to read/accept blank
discs. If it happens that the laser (lens) is the cause of the problem,
then it means you will need to replace the laser (lens) to a brand new
one to be able to read blank disc. Though the player might be playing
DVD and CD, note that blank disc is stronger when it comes to reading
from the laser (lens), it requires sharper laser. I hope you understand
So, insert a CD into the player and observe if it will play.If it plays, then its obvious that your laser is very weak.
Concerning the incompatibility issue, I
hope you are aware that there are various kinds of empty DVD discs such
as DVD +, DVD -, DVD RW. Try any of this empty DVD discs as one of them as to be compatible with this DVD recorder.
the two topics discussed above, one has to be the cause of the problem.
So its up to you to figure out which is the cause of the problem.
Is it possible the VHS you're trying to copy is copy-protected? Apparently, the MC6 displays "waiting for signal" when you're attempting to copy a copy-protected (commercial) video. I had success converting my own homemade VHS tapes. I just bought my MC6, and thought I'd pass along some tips I got from others: You know you're recording when a red ring around the large Record button lights up and it actually says "recording" on screen, and adjust HQ to SP to get 2-plus hours of video on the DVD.
1.The VHS/DVD player must have recording capabilities.
2 Connect both players to a television so that you can make sure you are recording the appropriate content. You can also monitor the speed at which the VHS is copying to DVD.
3. Place the VHS in the VHS player and the blank DVD in the DVD recorder. You will need to use your remote and go through the menu options to choose the correct format for recording. The formats should be clearly labeled and outlined in your instruction manual. Choose the option that will read something like "VHS to DVD." You may also have to choose recording speed, which varies per blank DVD that you purchase. Every player is different, and every menu will vary slightly. If you have questions, refer to you individual manual.
4. Select the option that works best for you and hit "Play" on the VHS player and "Record" on the DVD recorder. To play the finished DVD, you will select the playback option.
you need to finalize the disc or "make compatable" or "close session". basically the disc needs to be finished off to be able to play on any dvd player. dvd-r will normally play on any player as it is the standard format dvd discs. dvd+r/rw discs do not need to be finalized, but don't play on all machines.
1. Set up with a new blank DVD. 2. Insert VHS and adjust to the beginning of your recording. 3. Use the DUBBING button on your remote: you can adjust video quality (2 hours or 4 hours play) at this point. 4. RTFM for use of the PAUSE and DUBBING buttons to skip over commercials etc.
I called the manufacturer. They admitted to improper instructions. They provided me a fix to their copying protocol and it worked. Also, they game me instructions on how to fix already copied tapes. It works well and I would have to say I was impressed with their customer/technical service.
Best guess...put audio cd into DVD side, Video tape into VHS side. Set the VHS to record in SP, Then record the cd to vhs. then when you are done recording on the vhs, put a blank DVD in the recorder side, and press dubb to DVD to get it to record from vhs to Dvd.
you are trying to play dvds you have recorded on a different player and because you recorded them onto RW discs they have not and cannot be finalized, to be made compatible to play on other makes of player.
my suggestion from reading other forums is that these players sometimes have problems finalizing the disc.. you could try making a copy of the disc in a computer to see if this fixes the promlem or maybe media these use dvd+r and has a lot of compatibility issues with dvd players.
