    If the VHS is a commercial tape with copy protection . . . you can't do it with the Pioneer

    Victor

    Connect the red, yellow and white RCA jacks between the VCR's OUTPUT and the DVD recorder's INPUT jacks. On the DVD recorder, select toe proper input (video 1 or 2) . . . When you start the VCR playing, start the DVD recorder recording.

    You may want to practice with a DVD-RW disc so you don't waste and DVDs

    Did you finalize the dasks after recordeig
    Did you have the proper source selected [was it a blank recording]
    If you can't see anything on on the disk with any of your units and your PC.
    How do you know it did or did not record
