Question about Televison & Video
I have no owners manual. How do I record a VHS tape onto a DVD disc? When I put the tape in on the VCR slot and a blank DVD disc in the disc tray, I push the 'copy' button. I get 'error' on the player screen and it ejects both the disc tray and vhs tape.
How do I record my vhs tape onto a dvd disc?
Direct copy VCR to DVD:
- Insert VHS tape you want to copy
- Insert a recordable DVD disc
- Press DVD copy button on front panel or remote control (to DVD).
- To stop recording press the stop button.
IMPORTANT: If attempting to copy copyrighted material the Samsung DVD-VR320 will detect the encoding and will not allow the copy to be made.
