Symphonic DVD recorder wfr205

My symphonic dvd recorder will not record from vhs to dvd. It stated to us dvd-r disks. I even used the maxell brand that they requested. It still would not record. Do you have any suggestions

    I have had the same problem. The DVD play and record functions have NEVER worked. And Symphonic has offered NO support but to pay MORE money for a product that has never worked. I agree-an absolute WASTE of cash. Never again.

    Please, Please help. I have a similar problem with my symphonic WFR205. I have recorded the first year of my oldest child's life on a disk. Then my DVD player/recorder broke and I was unable to finalize my recorded disk. So now the images of my child's youth are stuck on a disk that cannot be played on any other DVD player. Symphonic support was useless. They have quit making the DVD recorder and I can't find a used one anywhere. I would be willing to mail my home DVD's out if someone would finalize them for me. Please help! Jeremy Normington 608-339-9083

I have the same Symphonc DVD- VCR Combo wfr205. I can't get it to work either. I called Syphonic support 2 years ago about it, they told me to clean it. I did. It will recognize DVD's sparodicly, but will not finalize them so that I can play them on anything else. I tried 3 different brands of DVD-R all with the same results. I called Symphonic a 2nd time. They do not offer replacement and have never acknowledged the recoder has a problem. I finally bought a Sony DVD recorder. I can use it along with the VCR portion of the Symphonic. The Symphonic was a waste of cash.

My BBK DW9937S dead too. But I changed its DVDWriter to NEC5170 (and now I've got an DW9938 because I can burn even DVD-R/RW disks too).

Can u record from vcr onto dvd on the symphonic udv580


Yes.
You will need a dvd-R and it should be a record button on the dvd side that you push after starting the VHS on Vcr side.

Symphonic WFR205 DVD recorded but not finalized


I have similar problem. I have recorded all of my old tapes on a DVD-RW disc (lots of time spent on it) and as I wanted to finalize them - it would display an recording error. Recently I purchased a new Sony blue ray player and I realized it would play the not finalized discs. I am still looking for a solution how to record these memories on a PC so I can edit them.

Samsung DVD-V$357 recorded dvds won't play on other machines


Did you finalize the disk? If not, this should solve your problem. When the disk is finalized you should be able to play it on your computer if you can play other DVDs on it. Some other DVD players can only play specific disks (i.e. DVD-R, DVD+R). This may be another problem.

Problem dubbing from VHS to DVD


Try different brands of disk, most dvd-r recorder are disk sensitive, buy only one disk per brand, find the brand compatible to your recorder by just inserting the disk and wait for confirmation that it is ready for recording session. I have tried around five brands, sony and maxell as well as verbatim are good dvd-r disk.
