another vhs to dvd question

Posted by alisande (My Page) on

Most of the videos I took of my family don't fill entire VHS tapes. In fact, some of them take up much less than half of the tape. What will happen when I transfer them to DVD? Will the machine automatically stop when it reaches the end of the recording? Or will I use up a DVD with a lot of blank space?

I don't see this issue addressed in the manual. Thanks for your help!

PS: It appears we can no longer use capital letters in the subject line. I wonder why not?

I believe the dvd recorder will stop recording at the end of the same time the tape stops. So just put multiple tapes on one dvd.

your dvd recorder should have a pause button.
