In February, someone asked: "When


What are the tapes that you are trying to copy? are there genuine copies of films? YES THEY COULD BE COPY PROTECTED how they do that? simple they record the tape with the most minimum srength of signal, if you try to copy it you lose signal strength trough the copy process than the video looks a bit scrambled/discoloured and the sound is bad, if it's the case you could buy a video signal booster (if still available in stores) than you have to copy with a VCR that is separated from the DVD recorder so that you can install the booster from the output of the VCR to the input of the DVD recorder.

Hope it helps!

Problems with the DVD-VR375


If discs skip, freeze or doesn't read, along with the recording problem, then it could be a dirty lens. If cleaning lens doesn't fix it the optical p/u assembly will have to be replaced. Make sure the items you are trying to record aren't copy guarded.

RCA 8295n dvd-vcr combo starts recording from VHS tape to disk and then stops.


Is the VHS tape a store bought movie or show?

MacroVision and other copy protection systems are put into store bought tapes and discs of movies and shows, and are read by your recording equipment. Once it reads this, it stops recording.

Does the screen turn red before it stops? This is one of the indications that MacroVision is stopping you.

Can't copy my disney vhs tapes to dvd


I'm assuming your Disney tapes are store-bought, as opposed to recorded off the air. If that's true, the reason you can't record them to your dvd recorder is because of copy-protection. Sorry...can't advise you how to break that.
