Need to copy VHS to DVD. I have a Go Video DVR4200 model

I noticed in the manual that there is a "Copying from DVD to VCR' option.

But I want to do the opposite....copy from VHS to DVD. Help! How can I accomplish this? Does the Go Video DVR4200 capacitate that? Or is there another way to do it with my Go Video, my home PC and my TV?

Please remember I'm a techno-retard and don't understand a whole lot of technological stuff, but if you explain it to me in good layman terms, I should be able to figure it out.

Thanks soooo much!

The name of the GoVideo DVR4200 is a bit misleading. It is NOT a "DVR". It will only record DVD ->VCR and any "protected" DVD will not record. There are some hacks out there for this unit but be careful because some of them have been known to kill the DVD player.

The 4200 has been out for quite some time as I had bought one for a family member some years ago.

Yes, it has the function to do so. Some VHS may be protected but the vast majority will be fine. Look into the manual that comes with it or post a comment and we can post one.

I just bought a Magnavox ZV450MW8A DVD/VCR Recorder. It has recording capabilities on both the DVD and VCR components but can you tell me if I can use it to record FROM the VCR directly onto the DVD? This...


Yes, you can, I have this unit and have actually copied a dvd to a vhs and then copied back to a dvd as I wanted a dvd copy to give a friend. The directions in the book are really quite simple. They tell you how to set the vhs to the spot where you want to start copying, etc.

I have not yet tried copying my family vhs tapes, but don't see a problem, just a big project. Good luck.

How to record a VHS tape to a DVD disc


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.

Presidian DVD/VHS combo player/recorder model 16-163


make sure you are using the right input. Also the VHS might have macrovision copy protection to prevent copying. you may need a video stabilizer box if you have macrovision. If its a home movie VHS then its an input setting on your DVD recorder. it may only record from the internal vcr not an external but I am not sure

Copying vhs to dvd


The write-protect tab on the cartridge is set to "PROTECT" or the disc is protected witht the "DVD Management" settings.
Some video tapes on the market(including rental videos) are copy-protected to prevent illegal reproductions. Copy-protected video tapes cannot be properly recorded.
You cannot use the copying function when the FUNCTIONS window, the Scheduled Recording List screen, etc. are displayed.
I hope this information can be of some help to you all. Ms Tanya 2/12/08 3:54AM CST.

Recording DVDs is a whole 'nother ball game. The data has to be all prepped and then recorded in one shot. Can't just start and stop like a tape machine. Half the reason for pushing DVDs on the market is prevent you from easily recording them. Takes either a special recorder ($$$) or a computer with a writable DVD drive.

Copy a vhs to a dvd on govideo dvr4200


This model is a DVD player only. It does not record to DVD's. You would need to get a model that has a DVD recorder.
