Question about Samsung DVD-VR330 VCR and DVD Recorder

Can't copy to DVD

Hi, I have been using my VHS to copy to DVD and it was working fine. I then disconnected everything to move it to a new position. When I try to use it now {either with the remote or using the button on the front of the machine} a message comes up saying "this function is not available. The VHS plays fine as does the DVD. It just won't record. What is wrong? Thanks in advance, Jesse

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?

SOURCE: Samsung DVD-4600 DVD/VCR Player

My Smasung DVD/VCR Combo stopped reading DVDs because of a dirty read head. It started by only playing disks sometimes, and progressed to never playing disks. I assumed it was a dirty laser lens so I bought a lens cleaner set. Unfortunately my player wouldn't play the cleaner disk.

So I took it apart and cleaned the laser lens manually with some isopropyl alcohol (the clenser that came with my cleaning disk), and a lens cloth (that came with my glasses). Just open the case (starting with the screws in the back) and remove the snap in cross panel that obscures the lens of the DVD portion. Put a drop of cleanser on the lens and gently wipe it with the cloth.

Oh and by the way, I take no responsibility if you break your own player while following my instructions. My own DVD player was far out of warranty at the time I cracked it open.

SOURCE: I have a Samsung DVD -VR 357 combo unit and i can't record

I have the Samsung dvd-vr 357. I have had a couple problems with it but I called samsung and they walked me through fixing it each time. I don't know if you have tried this or not but that is my suggestion. The last problem I had was copying from vcr to dvd. I got audio but no video. Problem was it was on dvd when i started it, it should have been on vrc. It should be set on whichever one you are recording from. Hope this helps someone.

SOURCE: how do I record my vhs onto the dvd?

How about a USER MANUAL instead :D


Please note this unit is NOT a DVD recorder. It only has a DVD ROM drive to play DVDs - not to record to them.

You need to finalize the disc for playing on other equipment. There will be an option for finalizing or closing the session in the recording menu.

SOURCE: cannot record copy protected message

OLD FBI WARNING USED TO ALLOW YOU TO MAKE BACKUP COPIES BUT THEY CHANGED IT KNOW THAT NOT EVEN THAT'S ALLOWED

OLD FBI WARNING DID NOT WANT YOU TO SELL, CHARGE FOR WATCHING BASICALLY MAKING A PROFIT OFF YOUR COPY

NOW YOU CAN NOT EVEN MAKE A BACKUP FOR YOURSELF

HBO, SHOWTIME, ETC ARE MOVIES CHANNELS SO IF YOU RECORDING OFF THOSE CHANNEL YOU ARE TECHNOLOGY COPYING ILLEGALLY

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!

HOW DO I RECORD A DVD TO A VHS ON A VHS DVD COMBO BY PHILIPS


Cannot do this on a combo unit. There is a chip that senses copy protection and prevents recording a copy-protected DVD to a VHS and vice-versa. Solution: Use an outboard DVD player or an outboard VHS VCR and try the recording with the video routed through a "stabilizer" box. The stabilizer (about $30 or less on Ebay) defeats the copy protection on MOST DVDs, but not all. It works with Netflix DVDs. Route the audio as usual. Audio is not protected.

Waiting for input signal


It's a protected video. The VRD-MC5 will not burn a VHS or input that has been protected.

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.
