Question about Samsung DVD-VR357

1 Answer

Copying disc of videocanea

I have a just-purchased DVD-VR357. I've transferred a movie from a VCR tape to a DVD-R disc. Can I make a copy of the disc or do I need make another disc transferring from the original VCR tape?

How do I fanalize the disc? I've been told that I can only edit a DVD-RW and cannot edit (add music and/or narration) to a DVD-R.

Are there any knowledgeable people that I can contact in the 916 area code?

With a combo machine you are usually stuck making another disk from your VHS tape-unless yours has a hard drive. Or you could make a copy with your computer DVD recorder-much faster by the way.
I don't know about adding music and naration it all depends on what your manual says your machine can do.

Re v5500 . . . can i copy a movie from the vcr onto a dvd with this model???


You cannot transfer VHS to DVD on this model unit by itself. You can, however, connect the AV outputs of this unit (as a VCR) to the respective AV inputs of a separate DVD recorder - using yellow-white-red RCA cables - as long as the source tapes are not copy protected, and the appropriate disc formats for the DVD recorder are used.

Are you trying to copy a comercial VHS tape to DVD?
If you are then macrovision copy protection system on either the tape or in the machine is the reason for the loss of colour.
There's not a lot you can do about it. If you want to copy commercial material you will need to transfer it to a computer and get a program to do it. But unless it's unavailable it is cheaper to buy the DVD version I have found and you will get better picture and sound too!
If it does it with a none comercial tape (ie something recorded of the TV). Then it could be a head fault or something else. In which case try cleaning all the heads guides etc first.

Samsung dvd vr357 Can not watch copied dvd on other dvd players


I know with the Go-Video, the DVD disc has to be 'finalized' before it's compatible with other DVD players/computers.

Check your 'set-up' menus while that disc is inserted into your Samsung DVD machine and see about pushing the 'up' arrow, if you have one, to see the contents of the DVD disc...then see if you can toggle to the right to see options for that disc, for instance, the title of it. You might see the 'finalize' option there.

After you transfer the data to the DVD, you can use a DVD editing program like the DVD remake found on this link

Copying vhs to dvd


The write-protect tab on the cartridge is set to "PROTECT" or the disc is protected witht the "DVD Management" settings.
Some video tapes on the market(including rental videos) are copy-protected to prevent illegal reproductions. Copy-protected video tapes cannot be properly recorded.
You cannot use the copying function when the FUNCTIONS window, the Scheduled Recording List screen, etc. are displayed.
I hope this information can be of some help to you all. Ms Tanya 2/12/08 3:54AM CST.

Backup my vhs tapes


First hook up the VR357 to the TV with any cable ..
Then put a VCR tape into the VHS player.. get the tape to where you want to start the recording and press stop.
Then put a blank DVD in (-r or -rw is the best)
Then press VCR on the remote
Then press TO DVD on remote
you will see the word COPY come up on the DVD player and the VHS tape will start to play.
When you are done just press stop twice. and you will get a message that says "updating information to disk"
