Did the speed you chose exceed 2 hours?. If so, that is your problem. Any other machine will read that time frame, beyond that it is iffy.

After you record, you must go to menu and finalize disc. Have you done that? [email protected]

Can DVD DISKS BE COPIED FROM VHS TAPES ON A dual; DECK MACHINE?


There are machines made just for that task such as the Magnavox DVD recorder. There is a VHS tape deck on one side and a DVD recorder on the other side. You can copy a VHS tape to a DVD and copy a DVD onto a VHS tape as well

Will this model record from the vhs tape to the dvd?


You don't state the manufacturer or model number in your question, thus we cannot answer. I will say that many do, but there is a caveat. If the the VHS tape is a commercially made movie, chances are it has copy protection on it. Most machines will sense this copy protection and will refuse to copy the protected VHS tape to DVD. This was done to prevent piracy. Home recorded tapes and non-protected tapes will usually work ok. Do not confuse write protection with copy protection however. Write protection is merely the tab on the tape that prevents re-recording of the tape. Copy protection is recorded right onto the tape itself and is read by the machine during playback.

How to convert VCR to DVD


no easy way to do this unfortunately. You either need to connect your VCR to a DVD recorder and record it directly onto DVD or use a device such as this http://www.dx.com/p/easycap-usb-video-capture-adapter-5707 to connect your VCR to your computer and record it onto your computer that way.

How do I record a vhs onto a dvd on the combo?


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.

RCA DRC 8310 - not copying from VHS to DVD. When I am playing the VHS tape I press the COPY button, it says that is copying for about 10 seconds and then stops and locks up,. If I press the RECORD...


stay with the 8x dvd (these recorders look and only work with certain types of dvds)...if your manual says maxell stay with it dont look for the brandless sale...use 8x unless your have updated your machine with new firmware from the mfr. for that 16x...are you trying to record HBO / DISNEY? its not going to be allowed on DVD...yes you can record both onto tape...but not digital..(I put all my movies onto dvd, my kids still have tape DISNEY)

hope this help

No Instruction Manual


1. Insert a blank DVD disc in the DVD deck and
close the disc tray.
2. Insert the VHS video tape you wish to copy into
the VCR deck.
3. Find the place on the VHS tape from which you
want to start dubbing using the PLAY, FF, REW
and PAUSE functions. For best results, pause
playback at the point from which you want to
record.
4. Press the DUBBING button on the Remote
Control or DUB on the front panel.
The Dubbing menu appears.
5. Use the arrow keys to select the desired Record
Mode: EP, LP, SP or XP.
6. Select [Dubbing] then press ENTER or DUBBING
to start copying.
7. To stop dubbing at any other time, press STOP (x).
Dubbing will stop automatically when the VHS tape ends.

Insignia dvd recorder


Unfortunately, no, unless the DVD is not copy written material. Commercial DVD and VHS tapes have a built in copy protection called Macrovision. Basically, it prevents copying them with any Macrovision enabled recorder. All DVD and VHS players sold in North America are required to have Macrovision Enabled. Though there are certain players that get around this (such as the Apex AD-1500, in which Macrovision can easily be disabled), unless you research and purchase one of those specifically, you're not going to be able to avoid Macrovision, and therefore won't be able to copy anything to or from a commercial DVD or VHS tape. Hope that answered your question completely, even if it wasn't what you wanted to hear.

Can an adaptor be used to play my 8mm tape in my VHS VCR?


With the Sharp Viewcam ®, there's no need to use an adaptor to play 8 mm tape. Simply connect the Viewcam ® to the TV or VCR for playback. You can even use your VCR to make a copy onto VHS tape.
