I need to copya vhs

Can you provide the model of DVD/VCR player? Not all models do this.

For the ones that can, you need to use the Dub feature. Put a blank DVD (or one with sufficient space) in the DVD tray; initialize the disc if you are using a rewritable disc (RW). Then put the VHS tape into the VCR (you may want to break off the write protection tab). Then set the unit to VCR mode and forwared the tape to the desired recording point (copy-protected tapes can't be copied). Then some models have a dub or copy button on the unit and/or on the remote (press it and follow the onscreen prompts to select VCR to DVD, recording quality and press Enter to start). The copying will stop when you press Stop or run out of space on the DVD. On some models, you need to do this with the on-screen menus. For those, the look for a Dub feature (where it is will vary in the menus - usually in the same submenu as timed recording) and then select VCR to DVD and the rest.

I hope this helps.

(I'll be glad to provide more information if you provide a specific model. I've worked with several brands and there are some differences in the setup routine. My current unit is a Zenith with a Copy button on both the front panel and the remote.)

I just bought a Magnavox ZV450MW8A DVD/VCR

Yes, you can, I have this unit and have actually copied a dvd to a vhs and then copied back to a dvd as I wanted a dvd copy to give a friend. The directions in the book are really quite simple. They tell you how to set the vhs to the spot where you want to start copying, etc.

I have not yet tried copying my family vhs tapes, but don't see a problem, just a big project. Good luck.

Dvd player only plays some movies

it might be sevral reasons:
1. Check if region code is the same for movies you playing and DVD player
2. If you using video CDs or copyed DVDs, player might be preventing to playback those kind of discs, due to copyright laws or due to different speed settings for DVD player and discks you using (for intsrance you player can playback DVD/CD+R, and you using DVD/CD-R, or mximum allowed playback speed is 16 you using disk recorded at 24, but this is in case you using burned/copied CD/DVDs)
3. Check it lens is durty. For that use CD/DVD lens cleaning disk
($6 in Walmart, if you are in US)
4. Check if movies you are have the same coloring system, i.e NTSC for US
5. Check CD/DVD for scratches, some DVD players can not playback scratched disks
Please kindly let me know if my information was helpfull for you or you need more info
Good Luck

How to transfer movies from VHS tape to DVD.

i hate being the bearer of bad news, but your unit is a dvd player only, not a dvd recorder. it cannot burn dvds, and so you cannot use it alone to transfer your home movies to dvd.

again, sorry...

Most branded DVD's have a country code programmed in it.
