BE CERTAIN OF THE KIND OF DVD DISKS IT SUPPORTS. My experience is that the kind of discs while you would think would not make a difference actually do make a big difference depending on the equipment you are using. I just transferred 15 vhs tapes to DVD and realized that the machine only took a few formats luckily it was the one I was using, but not all formats may be compatible. There is a difference between DVD+R and DVD-R as an example.
Did you follow directions on how to transfer VHS to DVD ? When the dvd is finished copying it MUST!! finalize the copy. If you attempt to eject DVD while in FINALIZING it gets stuck. Try and unplug the power for about 1/2 hour. plug in and eject. p.s. read the manual....the machine is complicated!!
Most Combo Recorders (VHS and DVD) will prevent you from
recording a Copyrighted VHS tape program onto DVD.
Try recording a TV program onto your VHS tape, then
transfer it to your DVD and see if your new DVD recording
will work or not.
My BBK DW9937S dead too. But I changed its DVDWriter to NEC5170 (and now I've got an DW9938 because I can burn even DVD-R/RW disks too). As I mentioned above almost any combo VHS/DVDwriter has the IDE DVDRW inside (I hope you guess how to fix it)
It depends on the specifications of the DVD drive in the laptop. Go to the website for you laptop manufacturer and look up the specifications. You also have to have DVD playing software. It is was not always included with the Windows operating system, although some kind of player may have been packaged with your computer when sold. DVD-RWs are recorded at slower speeds, which makes bigger dots and make not work with all DVD playback drives.
plz try by using a dvd lens cleaner, if the problem is not solved then try by changing the dvd data cable, if the problem is not solved, try by reinstalling the burning software if every thing fails then you have to buy a new dvd rom
First - be sure you have a DVD RECorder unit and just not a playback unit- It must say recorder on the unit and your manual --
You need DVD-R dvds only to put into this unit.
The instructions are involved and include 5 steps--
1. Format the empty disc.-done automatically when you put any empty disc into the unit.press yes
2. Put on VHS mode on -remote-light VHS lights up on unit
3. Press Dubbing on the remote and press yes
4. When finished press stop on the remote- wait
5. Finalize the DVD- this must be done p. 27 and 28 in manual or see info in my other solutions.
All this process is in the manual on page.76
Have fun DD
