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.
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.
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.
Is it the DVD player/cd burner combo on your computer or simple CD player?
Compatibility: Check if your DVD player on your computer is compatible of playing -r's CD or DVD?.
Check the make and model of your computer and go to the manufacturer's website and find out from there.
You might have to talk to the manufacturer's support.
and if you are sure that the DVD player and its compatible of playing -r's DVDs then first of all check by playing any +r's DVD and see how they respond. If you are certain that it plays - and +rs etc then recheck your recording of DVD's.
Also try installing a good program software like Nero on the computer which will give you options of controlling, burning and playing DVD/CD on your computer.
Best of luck!
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.
