Question about Toshiba D-VR4 DVD Recorder/VCR

Toshiba D VR660KU DVD VCR combo

We recently purchased this recording/vhs combo to transfer some VHS tapes from our kids years ago.....I made on on a DVD+R .....the front of
the book said it takes all formats....-R or +R and of course the -Rw and +RW......I finalized as it said....gave to grandaughter and she said it
did not work in her DVD player....
As I read the "play by play" instructions, it said to insert a DVD -R in the
machine and then proceed.......why does the front of the book say it takes
both - or + and then instructions say -R.....?
Does that mean I have to always use -R.......there was something about
making the disc. VR compatable....I pushed that button as I want it to
be compatable with any DVD player.....

I was sold the +R DVD's by salesman who said they are best in all machines.....does he not have a "clue?"....
thanks for any help..

The unit will only allow 2 hour recording on the DVD+R format. The DVD-R format is adjustable for longer recording time, just understand that the longer recording times = the lower the quality of the recording.

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.

If it won't PLAY VHS tapes it must have a serious mechanical problem (if it even loads) or its heads are glommed up, so it obviously won't record them either. When's the last time you ran a cleaning tape through it?


Solve the load or playback problem and it will probably record.


Time and poor storage conditions are the mortal enemies of tapes. Store the in a 'played

I have Toshiba D-VR660KU, I've copied several VHS


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.

My Apple computer will not play the DVD's that I transferred from VHS. Why?


Doubtful. If the drive won't read them, it may just be the brand on disk that is preventing it. Changing software settings won't improve anything if the drive in the computer can't read the disk.

Easy. Connect RCA lead from video/audio OUT on the VCR to video/audio IN on the DVD recorder. Set DVD recorder source to VIDEO then press play on the VCR and record on the DVD recorder.
