DVD recorded discs (from VHS) do not play on other dvd players
Can you help me here? I purchased a Samsung VHS/DVD Recorder to record old VHS videos onto DVD. After we copy the tapes onto discs, they play on the Samsung player, but not on anything eles, such as other DVD players, Playstation 2 and computers. We used DVD+R and/nor DVD-R discs to record on. Any ideas?
My Entertainment unit is a Sony DAV-5000 (about 6 years old). It plays movies we purchase, but not the one I recorded.
Re: DVD recorded discs (from VHS) do not play on other...
I called the manufacturer. They admitted to improper instructions. They provided me a fix to their copying protocol and it worked. Also, they game me instructions on how to fix already copied tapes. It works well and I would have to say I was impressed with their customer/technical service.

No,the DVD player build in tv can't record,only play DVD Disc only.Want to record personal VHS tapes only to DVD Discs,must have a seperate device unit VCR/DVD RECORDER device player not a device unit VCR/DVD PLAYER.Connected to the tv record VHS tapes to DVD Discs.
1.The VHS/DVD player must have recording capabilities.
2 Connect both players to a television so that you can make sure you are recording the appropriate content. You can also monitor the speed at which the VHS is copying to DVD.
3. Place the VHS in the VHS player and the blank DVD in the DVD recorder. You will need to use your remote and go through the menu options to choose the correct format for recording. The formats should be clearly labeled and outlined in your instruction manual. Choose the option that will read something like "VHS to DVD." You may also have to choose recording speed, which varies per blank DVD that you purchase. Every player is different, and every menu will vary slightly. If you have questions, refer to you individual manual.
4. Select the option that works best for you and hit "Play" on the VHS player and "Record" on the DVD recorder. To play the finished DVD, you will select the playback option.
Depending on the procedure you may be pressing the record button instead of the D.Dubbing or Dubbing button. When recording from VHS to DVD you must first, load the blank DVD and VHS home movies, then play the VHS movies, then PAUSE the VHS movie when you want to START recording... then the only the you have to do is pressing the D.Dubbing button or the Dubbing button. If your VHS tapes starts to play after the Dubbing button is pressed you have been successful in Dubbing.
Read your manual first to make sure the unit will do this.If it does chances are it won't record unless it has a decoder built in.Most VHS tapes have macrovision protection that prevents you from copying them.It will however,record homemade VHS tapes.There are decoders out there you can buy to enable you to copy VHS tapes.
The reason why you are having this problem is because you haven't finalized the disc. In able for you to play that Burned DVD that you have you need to Finalized the disc.
Finalizing a recordable optical disc means writing the disc's lead-in (the Table of Contents or TOC) and lead-out information (blank data that fills up the unused space at the end of the disc) so that a DVD player will know where the various tracks begin and end. Without the TOC, a conventional DVD player will not be able to read the contents of the disc.
Once the disc is finalized, no more information can be written to it. Finalizing takes about two or three minutes.
To finalize a DVD-RW/DVD-R:
1. Press the Menu button with the disc stopped.
2. Select Disc Manager and press Enter or the right arrow.
3. Select Disc Finalize and press Enter or the right arrow.
You will be asked twice if you are sure that you want to finalize the disc. Select Yes and press Enter.
Once the disc is finalized, you cannot delete entries from the record list. After being finalized, the DVD-R/DVD-RW (video mode) operates in the same manner as a DVD-Video. Recorded discs must be finalized in order to play back in non-Samsung DVD players.
A DVD-RW disc that has been recorded by DAO (disk-at-once mode) in a PC cannot be unfinalized.
A DVD-RW disc that has been recorded in Video Mode on a non-Samsung recorder cannot be unfinalized by a Samsung recorder.
A DVD-R disc cannot be unfinalized.
Note: Finalization does not apply to DVD-RAM.
If you cannot finalize a DVD-R or DVD-RW disc, make sure that Disc Protection is turned off. If you are still having difficulty, you may try calling technical support of SAMSUNG.
Note: Do not turn the recorder off while it is finalizing the disc. Data on the disc will be damaged if the finalization process is interrupted.
You have to buy first a VHS player that can play NTSC, might not be available locally in Ireland so you have to probably buy online (US).
The DVD recorder is fairly comnon nowadays and all of them are capable of recording and playing NTSC and PAL. You can then connect the AV out of VHS player to the AV In of the recorder.
Or you can use a VHS-DVD combi. You can google in UK, here is an example:
Toshiba RD-XV45, according to the specs, it can play NTSC on the VHS and you can record to DVD on any format that yoou want
