Currently I am using a SANYO DWR500 and a TOSHIBA DVD player to copy both DVDs and CDs to DVD. I did not realize until today that only one AUDIO channel is active at least on playback. I played a very good STEREO CD in my player connected to by amp. Perfect stereo. Then added recorder to player in series at both LINE 1IN and then LINE 2 IN. Both played either a single channel mixed output or or a 2 channel mixed output. The headphones were active at both ears but I could not tell exactly what I was listening to. Certainly not stereo as sent by the player alone. The recorder does NOT recognize a CD, ONLY a DVD. So I do not know where the issue lies. As is my practice I ordered a SAMSUNG DVD recorder model DVD-R4000. The unit has both RCA type connectors AND SCART. The manual says to use DVD-R media. No mention is made of -RW. Does this really men that RW is NOT supported? Or just a misprint? I have a PHILIPS DVDR985 that has issues. Out of the 18 tracks on this CD, it generates an error at track 8. Same error with other CDs in RECORD mode. Plus I need 6 hours of record time. 985 has 5, 500 has 6 as does the 4000. What might happen if I use -RW in the 4000? Errors? Shutdown? Any advice welcome. My goal is to dub my open reel tapes to DVD.
