Will not record on a DVD R

I have tried recording onto a disc from a vhs tape. The first time I recorded, it did fine. Howeve,r since then I have been unable to record anything. I go through the set up of inserting the vhs tape and then getting to the place i want to start recording. I then press stop and go to the dubbing menu. I select simple dubbing, then video ->dvd, and confirm. Then it does nothing. It gives me a grey screen instead of playing while recording. Has anyone else had this proble mand solved it?

I have a Panasonic DMR-ES30V. I've only ever recorded from what I'm watching on the TV to a DVD. I now have a VHS tape that I'd like to record to DVD. I tried starting the dvd to record...


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.

How do I record a vhs onto a dvd on the combo?


I have researched the manual for this particular device and you will not be able to convert/record VHS tapes to DVD discs. You can however record content from a DVD to VHS tape as this model only has a readable disc player not a DVD burner. Sorry, but you may want to research DVD recorders that also have VHS playback.

VCR DVD Recorder not dubbing


I called the manufacturer and realized I was using the wrong type of recordable DVD disc to dub to. Non copy protected VHS tapes dub just fine as long as I'm using the proper disc.

How to record a VHS tape to a DVD disc


Read your manual first to make sure the unit will do this.If it does chances are it won't record unless it has a decoder built in.Most VHS tapes have macrovision protection that prevents you from copying them.It will however,record homemade VHS tapes.There are decoders out there you can buy to enable you to copy VHS tapes.

DVD recorded discs (from VHS) do not play on other dvd players


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.

Unable to "dub" my 8mm tapes onto DVD-R using my Sylvania DV90VE


From comments posted on the Internet by other Sylvania users with a similar problem, I  learned that I had to use a 4X DVD-R (the ones I had been trying to record on were 16X). And I found that Office Depot sells the sometimes hard-to-find 4X format, so that's where I'm headed right after lunch.  Thanks.

Recording from vhs to dvd


Direct copy VCR to DVD:
- Insert VHS tape you want to copy
- Insert a recordable DVD disc
- Press DVD copy button on front panel or remote control (to DVD).
- To stop recording press the stop button.

IMPORTANT: If attempting to copy copyrighted material the Samsung DVD-VR320 will detect the encoding and will not allow the copy to be made.
