Recorder Player Problems? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello,I am Pete, and I'll be happy to assist with your question today.
There is a chance that the recorder unit may be defective or that you aren't doing something right or are using bad media.
However, these Sony recorders are infamous for NOT recording from VHS to DVD.
Even if it's a homemade tape you may not be able to record it because defects in the recording may cause the DVD recorder to think it's a protected tape and therefore will refuse to record it.As Sony has its tentacles in the audio recording and motion picture industry as well as electronics, they are very over-protective and over-sensitive to copying. So Sony electronics are always less useful than those made by other companies because the media half forces the electronics half to make them not work when you want to copy.

Yes, the type of disk being used could be a problem.
Could you try a different disk brand or speed type?
Ok, can you try more of those then?
Let me know if you need anything else at all.
