Cannot play dvd-r copies on other dvd players

When recording from vhs to dvd-r, it plays back fine on this machine, but it will not play back anywhere else. Is this a setting that I have wrong or am I using the wrong blank disc?

How to convert VCR to DVD


no easy way to do this unfortunately. You either need to connect your VCR to a DVD recorder and record it directly onto DVD or use a device such as this http://www.dx.com/p/easycap-usb-video-capture-adapter-5707 to connect your VCR to your computer and record it onto your computer that way.

I recently copied some of my old VHS tapes onto DVD-R disc & they play fine on my Magnavox, but won't play on my other DVD player. What did I do wrong?


Check through, the settings of Magnavox and do the similar region
settings in your other DVD.

In short to say, recording format and the play back format does not
match. if you corect this through the MENU available, it should be OK.

May be your other DVD is old model!

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 JVC DR-MV150B plays prerecorded VHS tapes fine.


Try opening the front hatch of the tape by pressing the small, square button on the right or left (short) side of the tape. Check the black tape inside for any marks, dirt, scratches, tears, etc. If the tape is fine then your unit needs to be cleaned with a tape cleaner available at any electronics specialty or retail store. Good luck to you!

Try a different brand of blank dvd+r or -r. you will find that your dvd machine is fussy on what discs it plays. More exspensive dvd players are fussy with what dvd discs you put in, as cheaper dvd players would virtualy play most types of dvds.

It sounds like the recorder will only record the dvd+ format, which does NOT need finalizing to play in other machines. ( you can record a dvd- , play it back on the machine you recorded it on, but need to finalize it to play on other machines)
The other units may only accept dvd-.(dvd- being the same format as you would buy or rent a film on)
One option, record the dvd on a dvd+rw (if possible) then copy to a dvd-r using your computer. The average use of a dvd+ is 1000 recordings.
There are many free disc burning suites available to download. Just google "free disc burning software" and take your pick.
I use 1 called "magix goya base" for copying disc to disc and "NTI" for burning to HDD and then to disc, if you only have use of 1 drive.

DVD recorded discs (from VHS) do not play on other dvd players


I called the manufacturer. They admitted to improper instructions. They provided me a fix to their copying protocol and it worked. Also, they game me instructions on how to fix already copied tapes. It works well and I would have to say I was impressed with their customer/technical service.

Can't copy to DVD


Most movies , on VHS , need a small decryption device to get rid of the ( Macrovision) protection, which will not let you record from VHS to DVD. I have one here that I use , works perfectly. It also decrypts from DVD to DVD , in case you need to back up a movie. Kids are allways banging DVD with scratches and it's not to copy the original & give them the copy to mess with, that way you allways have a perfect one in stock. If you ever need a converter , I have one left but works great. emailme:peppersradio@videotron.ca if interested?
