What do you mean by "DVD"? Are you talking about the DVD recorder or media? I use NEC DVD drives in my PC's and Ritek G05 or Taiyo Yuden TY01 or TY02 dye media. These are the best compatible media in my opinion. I backup VHS to DVD of holidays, family video etc for many people as a sideline to earn extra cash. Of the thousand or so done so far this combination has never let me down. If you need to know about DVD recorders that connect to your VHS someone else more qualified to will have to answer that, I have never used one.
