    I have a VHS tape that I'm trying to copy to DVD but it keeps stopping on it's own part way through playback. If I press play when it has stopped it will carry on playing OK. Any ideas how I can fix this ?

    The first thing I'd try is to fully wind and then rewind the tape once or twice before making the copy.

    Cheers, I'll give that a go next time - and I'll also record to hard disk first rather than ruin more DVD-Rs !
