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

Am i able to record a vcr tape on to a dvd


If the DVD drive is a recorder, then transferring VHS to DVD is possible. Otherwise, if the DVD drive is a player only, recording onto DVD is not possible.

The best way to determine if your DVD deck can record discs, is to insert a blank DVD-R into your unit and try to record/play it. If it can't, you will need a DVD recorder. These are not too expensive to buy, any brand you like, but go for quality, and proven reliability (such as SONY for example), whilst keeping price in mind.

If you absolutely have to, invest in a DVD recorder, and transfer your tapes that way. DVD recorder remotes tend to have more buttons and functions and can be slightly larger than player remotes.

Not the greatest help in the world, but at least it's free advice. Good luck.

Is it possible to copy video from a vhs to a dvd?


If the DVD drive is a recorder, yes. If it is a player only, no. If the tape is copy-protected, recording to a DVD recorder is not possible. Assuming the tapes are not copy-protected, and you are using a DVD recorder with the correct format DVDs (DVD-R for example), you shouldn't have any problems transferring old VHS tapes to DVD.

Recording from vhs to dvd


As long as you've got the DVD recorder set to the correct "channel" I can't see why it won't work. Why don't you just try it out on a DVD-RW first ? Use RCA cables from the VCR "OUT",  to the DVD recorders "IN" sockets and you'll be okay. If for some unknown reason it doesn't copy you haven't used a good disc. Probably won't copy anything with Macrovision(or other copy protection) though.

Copying disc of videocanea


With a combo machine you are usually stuck making another disk from your VHS tape-unless yours has a hard drive. Or you could make a copy with your computer DVD recorder-much faster by the way.
I don't know about adding music and naration it all depends on what your manual says your machine can do.
