Question about Toshiba DR4 DVD Recorder
Error message "Copy Protected Tape Is Used" appears when I copy a "home-made" VHS to a DVD but what is strange is that this always happens when the dubbing occurs approx. 30 minutes into the dubbing. I've tried different VHS tapes and even different brands of DVD-R but all with the same results as above. Any suggestions before I place the D-VR4X in the recycle bin? Thanks .... theallde
You say "home made" - not sure what you mean by that. If it was a copy of something that was originally retail, it's possible the Macrovision encoding copied over with it - in which case your DVD recorder is working as it's supposed to to prevent illegal copying of disks. I'm a bit wary of getting into this in any depth, as it treads the lines of legality. If I found a way for you to bypass this copy protection, it would allow you to pirate movies freely. I'm not going to discuss my own feelings on that, but I will say that I'm not going to support such actions on a public forum. That being said, if for some reason your totally legitimate home made tape managed to get something that's being interpreted as Macrovision coding on it, you may want to do a google search for digital video stabilizer. That will point you in the right direction.
