Depending on the procedure you may be pressing the record button instead of the D.Dubbing or Dubbing button. When recording from VHS to DVD you must first, load the blank DVD and VHS home movies, then play the VHS movies, then PAUSE the VHS movie when you want to START recording... then the only the you have to do is pressing the D.Dubbing button or the Dubbing button. If your VHS tapes starts to play after the Dubbing button is pressed you have been successful in Dubbing.

    I do not know who you are but you are a genius. I read and re-read the manual and evidently they didn't have it figured out. I tried your way and perfection. Thank you so very much. It was so simple using your directions and now I have successfully transfered most of my home movies to a dvd. THANK YOU SO MUCH

Your VHS tapes are copywrited. Must purchase a Video Stabilizer.
You need 3 seperate pieces of equipment.
1) VHS Player
2) Video Stabilizer
3) DVD recorder.

Cannot use Combo VHS/DVD recorder for dubbing copywrited store bought VHS movies directly to DVD due to Macrovision detection circuits built into the recorder per federal law.

Can i convert at PAL video with this machine?


The version of the ZV427MG9 sold in the U.S. only supports NTSC video files. Thus it won't play a PAL VHS tape.

If you find a similar version sold in Europe, that would probably play PAL videos. However, if you used the tape to DVD dubbing feature, the DVD would still have the PAL format. I'm not even sure that a video capture device with video conversion software on a computer would do what you want to do.

I wish that I had better news for you.

Cindy Wells
(The video would also matter. If you are trying to convert a commercial video (ex: a movie) to DVD, the dubbing feature doesn't work due to copy protection.)

How do I finalize my disk once I have finished recording from VHS tape. How do I get the finalize to light up on menu on screen?


If they are +RW discs they cant be finalized and can only be played on +RW compatible players. Use +R, -R or -RW if you need a wider compatibility (DVD-VIDEO). Finalizing is quite easy following directions in the manual.

Dubbing does the media transfer automatically, not by playback and record. you select vcr to dvd then do dubbing. Please read the manual. and try all the controls.
