Question about Sylvania SRDV495
I am having trouble trying to copy a VHS tape to a DVD-R. It keeps giving me a error message that it is the wrong disc and needs formatting. What can I do to record my VHS tapes to A DVD disc? which disc should I really be using. The book of instructions I have tried to follow but never turns out as a copy. I tried to call Sylvania themselves but the product they said was made for especially for Sears and Sears does not have technicians for this type of help. Can you help, I am desperate. [email protected]
I have the same unit, a SRDv495 and have also been having
a bad time getting dvd's that will work in my machine. I also
bought mine from Sears. I have found one that works every
time and that is a MAXWELL DVD-RW. The trick I think is
the speed of the DVD, so you need to use the ones that have
Up to Max 2X, 4.7 GBgo, 2 Hrs. I find these work every time.
Hope this helps.

I have the same unit and I find that it doesn't like certain brands of discs. I actually gave up and started using dvd-rw discs and just copying them again with my computer if I want to keep a recording. I mostly just use it to record TV. Also, make sure that the VHS you are trying to copy isn't copy protected, that can give you errors as well.
