The easiest way to transfer from VHS to DVD is by connecting the VHS player (or VCR) A/V OUT to the DVD recorder A/V IN. This uses inexpensive RCA cables, which can often be found in a local "dollar store" or for around 5 dollars in any electronics store.

The jacks are round and colored Yellow (Video), Red (Audio Right), and White (Audio Left).

After you connect the A/V OUT from your VHS player to your DVD recorder A/V IN, you will need to select the INPUT of your DVD recorder to "A/V" or "composite" in the SETUP menu. Your DVD recorder manual will provide details for your specific model on how to select the A/V input.

Once the correct input is selected, press PLAY on your VHS player, and as soon as the picture is steady, press RECORD on your DVD recorder. You will be good to go!

I recommend that you do not use DVD-RAM disks, though. They are "platform specific", meaning that if your DVD-RAM burner dies, you will need to replace it with the same model to be able to view your video. The best solution that I have found is to use blank DVD-R disks. They are much less expensive than DVD-RAM media. Make sure that after you are done recording on a disk that you "finalize" it. Until any DVD is finalized, it will be "platform specific"- by finalizing the disk, it will work on any DVD player. Check your DVD burner manual for the details on how to finalize disks.... the procedure varies from one manufacturer to another.

DVD-RAM and DVD+/- RW disks have a drawback in that before they can be used at all, they need to be formatted. Depending on the make and model of your burner, this can take up to 45 minutes. The big advantage with DVD-RAM and DVD+/-RW is that they can be erased and reused. DVD+/-R media is "record once".... you cannot erase and reuse them, but they are much less expensive.

DVD+R and DVD-R disks can be written to directly, then finalized as I described above.
My experience has been that for videos, DVD-R disks produce the best results, and have the least amount of errors. The disk brands that I have had the best luck with are TDK and Panasonic. Each manufacturer uses a different dye recipe for their disks, and some may not work at all for you. Keep away from the generic disks unless you are willing to experiment. I have had allot of problems with DVD+R so I no longer use them.

I Hope this was not TMI..... I just wanted to convey as much as I could so your recording experiences are pleasant ones..... Good Luck, and Thank You for using FixYa!

I have a Panasonic DMR-ES30V. I've only ever recorded from what I'm watching on the TV to a DVD. I now have a VHS tape that I'd like to record to DVD. I tried starting the dvd to record...


Most Combo Recorders (VHS and DVD) will prevent you from
recording a Copyrighted VHS tape program onto DVD.
Try recording a TV program onto your VHS tape, then
transfer it to your DVD and see if your new DVD recording
will work or not.

Toshiba d-vr600 record without viewing the whole tape


Unless both units has stated high speed transfer capabilities I think you have to do them one at a time and watch the entire video.
There are some units that are one unit for vhs to dvd. Panasonic is known to have some units but you are going to probably have to hunt for one. It will clearly state that it transferred compressed or highspeed.

Why doesn't DVD disc play on my computer?


Hello again

I don't know what gear you are using or exactly what you want to do, but I assume you want to put some of your old video vhs tapes or something you have borrowed, on to your computer.

Your DVD/HDD recorder will probably support DVD-R as well as DVD-RAM unless you are very unlucky. If it's a Panasonic it will definitely support DVD-R. DVD-R are reasonably cheap these days so you could use them for recording instead of DVD-RAM, then easily play them on your computer's drive. You would have the added advantage of a back up disc as well. If you want to edit first, use the HDD on the highest quality setting then transfer your edited work to a DVD-R..

Alternatively, you could buy an external dvd drive for your computer that supports -RAM, such as Icy Box or similar. External drives are reasonably priced and if you plan to transfer a lot of video, it would be a worthwhile investment.

Yes, you could probably connect the DVR direct you your computer but you would need an appropriate media card plus suitable software.

Good luck....hope this helps...

VHS record to DVD


Insert the VHS and rewind or fast forward to the point you want to begin copying from.
Insert the disc you plan to use and format it if necessary. It will usually prompt you if it is necessary to do so.
Put the television on the channel or input needed to view the recorder on-screen.
Select the DVD drive and set the record mode you prefer - XP, SP, LP or EP.
There are two things you can do:
1. Press and hold the dubbing/copying button on the recorder itself in the direction of the DVD for 3 seconds. If you are using a DVD-R/RW or +R you will receive a message stating to press Play to record without finalizing or press Record to record and finalize. If you are using +RW or -RAM, these cannot be finalized - therefore this message will not display.
2. You can access the Functions menu and go to Copy, then select the copy direction VHS to DCD and select Start Copying.
