    Generally speaking, when you get black&white picture where you were expecting colour, it means you are applying an NTSC picture to a device that only supports PAL.

    Could this be an NTSC VideoCD?


    In this case, you can see the picture on your TV because it supports NTSC (or you are using an RGB connection). However your VCR probably only understands PAL.

    If your DVD player has an option somewhere in its menus where you select the output type, it may be set to "AUTO" or similar. Try setting it to "PAL" and try again.

    Could you let me know where you got your Macrobuster from and whether it is any good or not? Thanks.

    Or you output a S-Video signal and record using composite (as normal VCRs only support composite, unless it's an S-VHS deck).
