I bought this unit about 10 yrs ago and have rarely recorded on it due to it's finicky reading of certain discs. Is there a firmware update? My unit is still pristine but has never recorded correctly.

We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this combination recorder. Unfortunately, we no longer produce any VCRs or combination units. We currently only have BluRay players that also play DVDs. These can be viewed on our website at http://www.lg.com/us/blu-ray-players.

Can I record from DVD to a flash drive on my recorder?

Asked by: ramblinro
We appreciate your interest in this Dual Recorder. A flash drive is typically a USB device. This product does not have a USB port available to which a flash drive might be connected. As such, no, it will not be possible to record to a flash drive.
