VCR into camera

I have a canon XLS, could not find it on the list so Im using this to get in. I am trying to get old VCR tapes from my VCR player into my XLs, so I can have them on mini DV. I have connected the cables to the out part of the VCR and the in part of the camera but nothing seems to be getting into the camera. I would also like to knwo how I can see how many hours the XLs has recorded but can seem to figure out how to do that either. Looking forward to help Joy

Since it is a Canon XL1S, I don't think that this feature is available (the recording tape to tape) until the XL2 Model. Just in case I am wrong, make sure that you are in VCR mode, and that in the menu options, somewhere there should be an option called Av to DV or something. As for the other part, you have to change what the display shows on the viewfinder. This is also in the menu under display settings, Timecode.

Lines when running vhs tape

Could be one of several things.incorrect storage of tapes...I.e. Kept near speaker magnets...in damp storage or the VCR heads themselves need cleaning.old VCR tapes are prone to losing their magnetic properties which make recording and playing back suffer from line interferences.if the tapes are new it points to the reading heads on the VCR.this may benefit from using a head cleaner.if you can't get hold of a head cleaner...contact me and I will share a DIY method I have used in the past.on no account must you try to open the unit without taking certain precautions.

Can I transfer video tapes onto CD's

A lot depends on what type of video tape you use and where do you want to play the DVDs (CDs are for audio recording only). If tape is compact VHS then you can buy a simple DVD Recorder VHS VCR combo player and transfer across easily provided you have the compact VHS cassette module.

For other type of video camera tapes you will have to try other methods like connect camera with tape to a DVD recorder and directly burn the DVDs. You can buy attachments and software for PC but I have found these very cumbersome to work with.

VCR tape playback not good

Check your "tracking" If the tape played fine in the old machine, then tracking is the answer, provided that the new machine records good.

Convert miniDV to VHS

You use the mini to triple RCA cable with the camera and go into the menu and make sure you are on A/v out instead of headphones. You just hit play on the camera and record on the VCR and Whala, it's done.

How to record from a VCR onto a canon mv530i

OK get a set of cord that can be used, on the back of most VCR's there is RCA Sockets for Video & Audio out... generally Red & White & Yellow these go to the corresponding inputs on the camera's Video & Audio inputs, OR Correct adapter. The camera must have the correct A/V INPUT selected. Then start the VCR to "Play" the tape, and set the Camera to "Record" this will/should then record the output from the VCR to the memory in the Camera.
