Re: transfering a vhs to a dvd
Hi jh1014, If the disc is not playing on your home DVD player, it is possible that it was recorded in a format your unit does not support. Your friend’s DVD recorder most likely recorded the DVD in a format readable by the player in which you watched it successfully. Refer to your product manual for more information on which file formats your DVD player supports. Thank you, Jason, Go Ahead.Use Us.

I'm glad to provide the instructions to transfer video from VHS Tape to DVD. You may purchase a DVD Recorder and connect the VCR to its A/V input to record the videos directly to a DVD. There are VCR/DVD Combo Recorders available where you can dub from VHS to DVD without using another VCR.
Alternately, if you have an A/V interface in your Computer, you can connect a VCR to the Computer and capture videos using Windows Movie Maker or any other video capture software. Once you transfer the video to the computer, you can burn the videos to a DVD using the DVD burner in the Computer.
Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require further assistance or any clarifications.
now that the transfer is done, put the DVD back in and run through the menu options to finalize. If automatically finalizing is an option, you could do that next time you transfer a VHS to DVD. But this first one you can finalize after the fact.
ok,you need to prepare your VHS tape and put to what portion of it you want to transfer.but, you will need a cd/dvd writer.it is used to record whatever you want to record.you need a computer to do this.it's complex but if you get the hang of it, it's very easy.
hook the video output from vcr to dvd input at rear, then hook output from dvd to tv input. note; you can not record protected vcr movies you can only record tv shows from sattelite to vcr or dvd recorder. its best to record straight from sattelite to dvd recorder for picture clarity.
what kind of software are you using. I have had problems with this type of transfer and I had to use a special transfer device. If you want to know about the device write back and I will tell you how I did it.
You must use the input select button on the vcr remote to turn on the jacks on the front or back of the vcr. If you need a remote, call the customer service number on the vcr to see if it is still available.
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.
Wow! What a job. The solution depends non your patience, technical skill, and the amount of time you have. You can use a telecine transfer box or, what I do, projeect onto a white card and video tape from the image on that card. A white card works as well or not better than a transfer box, because there are no cheap mirrors to distort the image.
Here are some techniques:
Use a variable speed projector, set to 18 frames per second (fps) to reduce flicker.
Project onto a dull white card from about 3 feet away.
Set your camcorder up behind the projector on a tripod. Use MANUAL FOCUS. Set the shutter speed to 1/60 MANUALLY. Set the white balance MANUALLY to artificial light. Using the automatic features on a camcorder will give you an unstable picture as the camera tries to adjust.
You can capture directly to DVD or VHS tape, or better yet, directly into your computer. If your camcorder has an S-VHS output ( a round 4-pin plug) and your VCR or DVD recorder has an S-VHS input, use S-VHS for better color.
Leave the room lights on while capturing.
Zoom up on your image, set your white balance on the camcorder and begin the transfer.
I do not use a regular movie screen because it is beaded and gives you an image broken into little dots.
Experiment until you get the best results. Then write down all the settings and use that as your guide for future transfers.
If you need to edit, you can edit on your PC using I-Movie or a similar program, or use assembly editing from one deck to another - VCR to DVD-R or VCR-VCR. Use the pause and record button to skip over parts you want to delete. If you use your computer you can add titles and music. You can also add music using your VCR or DVD recorder if you have the patience.
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
