Top critical review
Another instant return
Reviewed in the United States on May 24, 2016
After having gotten burned buying the Funai which can not dub VHS to DVD, I carefully read this time not just personal reviews, some of which apparently are fake, but the manufacturer claims.
Toshiba clearly states that this unit will dub VHS to DVD. The unit I received would not.
The manual sucks, I had to get accurate direction elsewhere from folks who had called Toshiba Support.
So yes I had DVD_R, yes I had it set to L1 recording mode, and yes I tried more than one tape. The machine would not finalize the discs, so they are coasters.
It did appear to successfully record, but unless the disc is finalized it will not play on any other machine.
It would not auto finalize so I had to try to manually do so, and following the directions very carefully the machine would not do what is shown on the net, pressing exactly the buttons shown, scrolling with the triangles, no general setup, no manually finalize disc.
So I am looking for a machine that will successfully and simply dub VHS to DVD, this is being written 23 May 2016, I am not sure what to do now having been burned twice.
