Question about Samsung DVD-VR357
No matter what I try to record, movies or a commercials I get a message you can't record a copy protected movie. I get this from both the dvd and vcr unit is about 1 year + any suggestions
Is this a new problem or has it always been like this? The unit will throw that error message if there's a copy protection flag on the broadcast source.
To make matters worse, there are three flags a broadcaster can set. Copy Always, Copy Once, and Copy Never.
Copy Always and Copy Never are pretty self-explanatory but the Copy Once flag with this unit only works with certain media, namely DVD-RAM and DVD-RW in VR mode with CPRM (Content Protection for Recordable Media.
Copy Always flag should work with all media. I don't know of any easy way to figure out which broadcasts have which flag but try changing your media and recording mode first.
P.S. You may also want to reset to factory default settings by pressing FF and RW together on the player. Also make sure you're running the latest firmware.
