Question about RCA DRC8300N (DRC8300NWITHREBATE) Burner

Open Question

I do not have the DRC830N connected to a TV. I am trying to copy old vcr tapes to a dvd but after following the manual directions am unable to do so. I have put in the dvd to be read first, then the dcr, but after pushing the copying button, the only reading I get on the units lcd screen is menue, and then the arrow showing the progress of the vcr. The old tape is hot recording on the dvd and I don't see any reason why. It may have something to do with the fact that the unit is not connected to a tv; however, it should not have to be connected to copy. Please advise what I should be doing. Thanks, Melinda (melinhatfield@aol.com) I will be out for a while, but if you can give any advice that I can use later, please do so. Thanks

SOURCE: RCA VR688HF VHS VCR won't accept tapes

The brain in a VCR has a little switch assembly that senses what position all the mechanical stuff its in. Apparently, the mech is out of whack which is why it won't let you play. This is a common problem and any VCR shop should be able to repair it.

SOURCE: VCR stuck on menu screen

Thank you. I did fix the problem. Reviewed the instruction manual for the Samsung VCR and removed the SAFE reading on the VCR by just holding down the TV-VCR button on the RCA universal remote for several seconds which then released the frozen menu screen. From there I was able to reprogram the TV using the instructions and codes for the RCA universal remote. I still have to reprogram the VCR.

SOURCE: Disc Finalize stuck at 99%

Thank you for the help. I decided to return the unit - totally unreliable. Walmart wasn't stocking this product 2 days after I bought it - I think they had so many complaints they probably returned them all to the wholesaler.

Need to transfer order VCR-C tapes to DVD How


You will need to borrow or buy a DVD-Recorder, either way it's best to follow the manuals instructions on how to connect your camcorder (external device) to the DVD Recorder for Recording to DVD. Most camcorders come with a set of AV (audio/video) Cables for this purpose. On your camcorder you will find a little rubber door that houses the terminals to connect your cables to. Depending on how old your camcorder is you will find a Yellow (video) and a White (audio) and on the newer ones that have stereo capabilities...you will have a Red (audio), all these connections are video and audio Out-Inputs and should be connected to the Video and Audio "In" terminals on the back of the DVD Recorder. Now make sure your battery is fully charged (It's best here to use an AC Adapter for your power supply instead of your battery, which also usually comes with your camcorder if bought new.) and that your VCR-C tape is loaded and completely re-wound. Now if you want to watch this on your TV while you are recording to DVD...you'll need another set of AV Cables that come with a new DVD-Recorder, and hook these cables on the Out-terminals on the back of the DVD- Recorder and the other end of the cables to your TV's Video/Audio-IN terminals on the back of the set. Finally...Set your camcorder switch for Playback, turn on the DVD Recorder, And turn on your TV. Now you can go ahead and record all your VCR-C tapes to DVD! Any other questions?

I just bought a Magnavox ZV450MW8A DVD/VCR Recorder. It has recording capabilities on both the DVD and VCR components but can you tell me if I can use it to record FROM the VCR directly onto the DVD? This...


Yes, you can, I have this unit and have actually copied a dvd to a vhs and then copied back to a dvd as I wanted a dvd copy to give a friend. The directions in the book are really quite simple. They tell you how to set the vhs to the spot where you want to start copying, etc.

I have not yet tried copying my family vhs tapes, but don't see a problem, just a big project. Good luck.

Can't connect VCR


Connect your 211 to the DVD with component cables, and the DVD to the TV also with component cables. That will enable you to record from the 211 to the DVD, and also watch from the DVD to the TV.
Now, connect the 211 (the 211 will output to both the component and the HDMI at the same time) directly to the TV with your DVI-HDMI cable. Naturally you'll have to complete your connections for sound following the same idea.
Now using the different inputs on your TV, you can source from the 211 or the DVD, and be able to use the DVD to record as well.--------------OR TRY THIS WAY----------DVDVCR needs to use rca (yellow/white/red) plugs as input. Your TV has outputs for that (tv out/ audio out), that will enable your to tape shows from the TV. That's the first connection.
Then connect the green/blue/red outs of the DVD/VCR to the respective in's of the TV. OK, that unit is done.
Now, the 211 to the TV. Using your HDMI to DVI cable (which only provides video as you noted) connect the 211 to the TV.
Now, the audio from the 211 to the TV we can connect.... no way. The answer is that you are going to have to split the red and white plugs from the 211 to the TV and VCR inputs, that's the only way I can see.

VCR, DVD, TV Connection


first let me say that a dvd player and a dvd recorder are different. the dvd player can only play dvd while a dvd recorder can both play and record dvd that is said. what i understand from what you write is currently is - out of your tv box into your dvd player then out of your player into your tv........ ok some dvd has two connections. line one and line two if your tv box is in line one then you should plug the rca cable in line two in. then you select line two on the dvd player then plug the other end to your vcr in line out so that is out of your vcr into line two of your dvd player.(some times one of the connection is at the front of your player hidden) if your dvd player only have one connection then you would have to plug out your tv box and replace it with the vcr cable and when you finish coping your vhs tape you plug in back your tv box to your dvd player. hope i could help..........

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.

Recording Snow


If you hook your VCR up to the RCA jacks on the front of the DVD recorder, push 002 on the remote to use the front input jacks. (001 if you hook your VCR up to the rear input jacks)

Push record on the DVD recorder, and push Play on the VCR.
(Pg. 35 in the manual)

When you push play on the VCR, you should be able to see the movie being played on your TV. If you cannot, make sure your RCA cables are good and hooked up correctly.

That's all you have to do, so if it's not recording I would try to take the unit back for an exchange.

HELP! I can't figure out how to Connect my Sylvania DVD/VCR Combo to my older TV


Even if you do get it connected you cannot copy from vhs to dvd as you have bought a vcr recorder with dvd player, not a dvd recorder. You can only record to the vcr tape from a dvd, in the players controls.

TV - DVD Interference Problem


Do you have any other DVDs to try? there is a copy guard put on dvds called "macro vision" maybe this is the problem. Usualy you will notice this when you try and run the dvd threw a VCR not threw the TV. If you are running it threw the VCR by mistake then try direct threw the tv. This is to keep piracy down.
