Summary: I needed something to easily dub my old VHS tapes to DVD and this seemed like the ticket. I was able to to encode and finalize a DVD pretty easily and no error warnings came up but the DVDs would not play on either of the two DVD players in my house. (One is only 2 years old) I called Sonly support, (That's another story which I won't even go in to) and they suggested I try a different brand of DVDs. No luck.
Summary: Sony VRDMC5 DVDirect DVD Recorder I never have written a review for any product. I was very disappointed in this product. I transferred my 8mm tapes to the discs, which was very easy, but there wasn't any sound. I called Sony customer service, they told me there were was a glitch in some of these models causing the sound not to be transferred. They informed to load a patch from the Sony website.
