Question about Insignia IS-DVD1001 DVD Recorder/VCR
Please help: For a class I'm teaching I need to copy scenes from a dvd on to a vhs tape. Can I do this with the insignia recoreder? And How? Thank you for your help
Unfortunately, no, unless the DVD is not copy written material. Commercial DVD and VHS tapes have a built in copy protection called Macrovision. Basically, it prevents copying them with any Macrovision enabled recorder. All DVD and VHS players sold in North America are required to have Macrovision Enabled. Though there are certain players that get around this (such as the Apex AD-1500, in which Macrovision can easily be disabled), unless you research and purchase one of those specifically, you're not going to be able to avoid Macrovision, and therefore won't be able to copy anything to or from a commercial DVD or VHS tape. Hope that answered your question completely, even if it wasn't what you wanted to hear.
