    This is my problem, I can copy the VHS and PVR to my hard drive and place it onto the 4.7 gig blank DVD .
    Then on my Desktop I get a menu kinda screen and the movie that I have copied to DVD it will show A 2 inch box with the movie in it.. SO I can Mouse click to start the Movie and it will Run fine a looks great,
    BUT,,, When I place it into my home player (APEX) it will show that same start screen. But nothing will make the box click and run the movie.. Anyways I am new at this and I think I have the burning Process down now.. but would love to run this stuff on my Home DVD player..
    Thanks for any help

    Most of the time when you copy a VHS movie to your HD, it isn't in the proper format to play on a stand alone player. It usually needs converted to proper dvd format. A computer can handle just about any video format. If your HD files are in say AVI format try the guide listed as AVI to dvd-r from the guide tab at the top of the page.
