Knowhow No. 13

Videos were around for a long time. At some stage most households will have had stacks of them in cupboards, on shelves or in the loft. They've pretty well had their day as a media format but we all have our favourites and it's expensive to replace them all on DVD. That's where DVD recorders come in, because as well as recording from the TV, they can also copy videos onto DVD format. Follow these easy steps and transfer all your favourite videos onto DVD.

 

How To Copy a Video Onto a DVD Using a DVD Recorder

What You'll Need

  • 1 HDMI Cable
  • 1 Blank DVD

The KnowHow

  • You'll need a cable that will connect the video to the DVD recorder. Normally this will be a composite AV cable. Plug one set into the AV OUT sockets on the VCR, and the other to the AV IN on the DVD. Remember to match the colour coding
  • Put a blank DVD into the player
  • Put your video into the machine and spool it to the start of the section you want to transfer
  • Start the DVD recording - after a few seconds it will be up to speed; a message may appear on the front letting you know this
  • Press play on the video
  • When you've finished recording, stop the DVD recorder. It may take a few minutes to "finalise" the disk so it can be played on any other DVD player

Now you can start building your DVD archive.

And throw out all those old videos.

Always refer to the manufacturer’s manual for specific details.
