Hello my name is***** look forward to assisting and am very sorry to hear that you are having this problem.

You would need to do this while watching a VHS and if it is copy protected it can not be recorded on this model.
Press the OPEN/CLOSE button and place a recordable disc on the disc tray.
Press the OPEN/CLOSE button to close the disc tray.
Wait until LOAD disappears from the front panel display

Press the PROG/TRK buttons to select the station you want to record.
Press the REC SPEED button repeatedly, to select the recording speed (quality).

Press the REC button.
Press the STOP button to stop or finish a recording
in progress.
• The message "Updating the information of disc. Please wait for a moment" is displayed

If you have any questions at all click on reply to expert and let me know.
If not please don’t forget to leave a positive rating for my help - it is greatly appreciated.
Please note you are rating me only not this site or your Recorder.

Tapes have transferred to discs okay., but will not play in any other

Devices, only play in the Samsung unit. Why?

Expert:  Freddy M. replied 2 years ago.

The region codes need to match. Page 35 in the manual explains this here: Click Here Once you finalize the disc the disc can only be played in other Region 1 players. Region free players can sometimes play them as well.
