Trying to back up some old VHS tapes

Hi guys, I’m very new here, nice site, I hope to be able to stick around for a while, there seems to be a huge amount of info for me to sink my teeth into.

I have a small problem trying to record some old holiday videos onto DVD. I have a Panasonic DMR-ES30V VHS-DVD combi, I can record straight off the TV with no problem what so ever. It’s when I try and back up my old videos, they seem to record ok, its when we play them back that the problems start. The recorder breaks the recording into chapters which is ok in itself but when playing the disk it jumps back 10 seconds or so every time it moves onto another chapter. How can I fix this?

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me in this matter.


I would be concerned about the quality of DVD disc you are using to burn the converted VHS files to it. Try to use good quality of disc to see if the problem goes away.
