Re: How to record a VHS tape to a DVD disc
Convert VHS to DVD via PC and software
What you need:
An analog converter device, VHS to DVD tutorial: analog converter
A PC with a DVD drive, DVD burning software (take Leawo DVD Creator as an example).
How you do it:
Step 1: Usually the converter has a USB portal on one side and red, white and yellow RCA cable on the other side. Connect the cables according to the colors and connect PC through the USB port.
VHS to DVD tutorial: connect converter
Step 2: Now you should be able to play the VHS footage on your computer, and this is when the Screen recorder come into play. Capture the screen while your VHS footage plays on your computer and storage it as a MPEG file (best MP4).
Step 3: Open Leawo DVD Creator and import the MP4 video you have just captured.
Step 4: Click the big green icon Burn to call out DVD burning panel.
Step 5: Enter the DVD burning setting panel and set the saving location. Then you could start to burn.
Hope this is helpful for all those with this same issue.
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.

BE CERTAIN OF THE KIND OF DVD DISKS IT SUPPORTS. My experience is that the kind of discs while you would think would not make a difference actually do make a big difference depending on the equipment you are using. I just transferred 15 vhs tapes to DVD and realized that the machine only took a few formats luckily it was the one I was using, but not all formats may be compatible. There is a difference between DVD+R and DVD-R as an example.
I have researched the manual for this particular device and you will not be able to convert/record VHS tapes to DVD discs. You can however record content from a DVD to VHS tape as this model only has a readable disc player not a DVD burner. Sorry, but you may want to research DVD recorders that also have VHS playback.
Here is the owner's manual for your DVD machine. This is a VHS recorder but not a DVD recorder. To record VHS tapes to DVDs, you will need a DVD recorder. You will plug the yellow video out connector on the VHS to the yellow 'Video in' connector on the DVD Recorder. Do the same for the red and white audio connections, out on the VHS, IN on the DVD Recorder. Connect your TV to the DVD recorder so you can see the picture you are recording.
Select AV-1 or some thing in TV and plug DVD recorder Video-Audio output in AV-1 input of TV, playback any DVD and confirm its picture and sound in TV. Press Stop button of DVD recorder to stop playback. Now plug Video-Audio output of VCR in DVD recorder input and select AV Input in DVD recorder, insert VHS tape in VCR and playback it and confirm you get VHS picture and sound in TV via DVD recorder. Hookup between TV, DVD recorder and VCR is completed. Playback VHS tape in VCR, Insert blank DVD disc in DVD recorder and press Record while you see VHS tape picture in TV. Hope this info will help you.
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.
