If you need to use a VHS copy of a video, check with the manufacturer for the right version of the software.
Some manufacturers even make a DVD or Blu R-Ray version of their software.
Here are some things you can check for when installing a VH or BluR-Ray:1) The VHS video is not currently in use.2) If the VCD copy of the video is being played, there should be an error message like this: “This video is currently in operation.”3) The video is playing and not yet playing.4) If there’s no error message, you may need to turn the VCR or CD player back on.5) You may need an external hard drive to install the VHF copy of your video.6) If you’re using a VHD copy, it will not play on a CD, DVD or other media.7) You will need to wait for the VHA copy of video to come online before you can play the files.
If your car does not have a VHF or VHS system, it can be installed with a software update or a service pack.
If your car doesn’t have a DVD player, you can use an external VHS media player to play your VHS files.
