VR5940 DVD Recorder/VCR-Thinks a regular VHS tape is copyright protected

For some reason when I place a regular VHS tape in the machine and try to copy it over to the DVD, it stops recording and comes up with the message copyrighted protected, with a button for yes only. These are tapes that I have made myself, they are not copyright protected. I purchased blank VHS tapes at the store and now I am getting this copyright protected message and it will not copy what is on the VHS tapes to the DVD. How can I correct this problem?

Don't know your machine, but is it possible that it's seeing your source tape as write protected (missing tab) and so assuming it should not be copied to the DVD?

SOURCE: My VHS tape will not eject from the VCR. I have a

Hello
The mechanism of your VCR has jammed with video casette tape. If tape ribbon has got twisted around the drum motor head, or the belt that connected to eject [capstan] motor has elongated, this type of fault will occur. Either it will play, rewind, fast forward of eject. Just replace the belts first. In most VCRs the user can replace the belt from underside. Let the tape is there, if it is in, replace all the belts. Belts can be bought from most of the electronic spare part shops at your town. It will come as kit type, each model has its own belt kit, and you have to give them the exact model number of your VCR. Just open the cover of the VCR, and look for tape ribbon twist if any. If it is there, remove it carefully without making damage to any other internal parts, especially to video head. If necessary, cut the tape film. If tape twist is only the problem, it will be rectifed as this twist has been removed. If this also doesn't help you, replace all the belts. OK.

I have a Toshiba dvr 7 vcr dvd recorder. It occasionally gives an error message 85 when I am trying to copy a VHS tape to DVD. What does this mean and is there a way around it?


Commercial movie VHS tapes have copyright protection added to the tape. There is hardware in the recorder (mandated by law) that will sense this signal and not allow copying of these tapes to another tape or any other media. There are hackers that have built devices and modified equipment to circumvent this, but you risk legal action if caught.

No,this can be done only copyright materials through the VHS box converter run through a computer with a programs call copy decoders programs.Than u can copy VHS copy protected matrials.Than u reburn it back to DVD disc.So this require alot of work,time and money so not worth it to copy commercially VHS tapes to DVD Disc.

NOT ABLE TO RECORD


Key thing to remember when recording anything is the following: 1.  Color to color on the back of the machine      Video -yellow      Sound - White and red 2. Make sure your source is output and the recorder is input. 3. Be sure that it is original content that you are trying to record ie make sure you are recording from a VHS that is "Kids do Beauty and the Beast for 5th grade play" and not "Disney Beauty and The Beast"
Legal Copyright Info This information is intended for help with original work.  It is not intended for misue or copy of copyright materials.  Most DVD Recorders will not record protected content, but for those that do not provide copyright protection I assume no liability and will not be responsible for damages or legal action resulting from the misues of this information.

VHS backups on DVD


Your VCR will NOT copy any commercialy published tapes to DVD disks. There is a protection built in to every sync line of the video on the VCR tapes. This is known as MacroVision protection.

The machine that you bought has been designed to block anything with MacroVision, and anything with any other industry standard copy protections. The codes for this are permanently burned in to the main uPC of the machine.

The publishers of the tapes do not know who is copying for what purpose, and how many are being copied. Under copyright laws they have the right to to take whatever action necessary to protect all their publications.
