nice machine, but it doesn't work,
This review is from: Daewoo DF8150 Multi-region Capable DVD Recorder +RW & VCR Combination with MP3 and JP (Electronics)
I went through two of these machines (Amazon was *great* about replacing them, btw). The first worked fine--and it is, when it works, a great machine--but it began to eat all videos placed in it after about a week (the only way to release them was to switch off at the mains). A replacement machine did exactly the same thing from the minute I set it up. New firmware from Daewoo (who were very efficient in sending it off) didn't help. My suspicion is that the machine can't cope with pre-recorded videos as soon as you set it up to record a DVD (that's when all the problems begin) but there is no way to fix it once it's begun to act up (covering the record-protection tab on the video doesn't help either). I bought this machine hoping the negative views were from people who had much earlier versions of the firmware, but Daewoo has yet to make this product work.
