Question about Sony Electronics - Others
I have a Sony DRD-GX120 DVD recorder. I use TKD DVD+RW medium which I edit - I remove TV advertising - and then copy the +RW discs on my computer onto JVC DVD+R. Latterly my computer programs - K3B on Ubuntu (and Nero under Windows7 tell me that the +RW discs are copy protected. This is a recent happening (the last 20 disc copy sessions out of perhaps 1000 done to date. I cannot see how or where I have added 'write protect' or how I can remove it - are you able to help? - John
Over the air broadcast has to contain a FLAG that makes it copy protected.

Testimonial: "Many thanks for advice. However - I can and do edit the RW disc from within the Sony RDR GX120 DVD player/recorder - I copy programmes from TV and then I remove the adverts. On around 900+ occasions I have then copied this RW disc onto a R disc using my computer. It is only within the last 20 or so occasions that I have been unable to make the copy from the RW onto the R media. The RW disc is registered as being either unreadable or write protected on each of two desk top computers and one lap top - it is not therefore a fault at the computer end of the final copying. If a flag is introduced by the TV companies - then - is this a recent ... like within the last fortnight ... introduction. Is it? If not, then the protection has to have been introduced within the Sony DVD player/recorder ... and - it can and does play and edit the RW media and also plays the R media that was copied before the present problem manifested itself ... so ... unless the flag is a very recent introduction then this cannot be the problem"

SOURCE: Problems with the DVD+RW
Here is a site with a list of compatible DVD-+RW that can be used in that burner: http://sony.storagesupport.com/dvdrw/530mediainfo_gb_na040407.html As you can see, JVC isn't listed on there for some odd reason...

Sony Mini DVD dcr Camcoder cannot open by windows without hardware, it mean you must convert video data direct from camcorder using cable, you cannot copy or convert mini dvd to PC, so don't buy this Sony product (espesially camcorder using Mini DVD). Capek dehhhh.

Does your camera have other outputs, i.e., composite-video and L/R audio ?
If the disk "plays" inside your video-camera, then use a "video-capture" USB device, to "play" the movie into the USB device, and "record" from the USB device into your computer.
