Recording over copyright

I have a vhs that I recorded of my daughter over 10 years ago and it is telling me it is copyrighted. I don't have a clue why-it is my own recording. How do I get around it to make a copy to dvd?

Re: recording over copyright

One way would be to hook your video up to a computer and record it this way.

Recorder stops recording from vhs tapes after about a minute

Some VHS tapes have copyright signals embedded in them. Then when the DVD recorder reads the copyright signal it will stop recording due to it thinking there is a copyright violation happening. Try testing with a VHS TAPE of a show you have recorded off the TV and see if it does the same thing .,

Can record on DVD disc will not play on DVD player

Make sure the materials you're trying to record onto the DVD
is not Copyrighted. Try to record a normal TV program onto your
VHS, transfer it to your DVD and then play it. See if that will
work. A VHS movie is usually Copyrighted and Protected by
Macrovision. The picture output can be displayed on a TV set
for viewing but is scrambled black to a DVD Recorder.

Well it depends on what you're recording. If you're trying to record from the T.V. your going to have issues because of the recent switch to digital. If you're recording from homemade VHS to DVD however just put in your VHS, then your blank DVD and hit record. There should be some on screen instructions displayed.
Hope it Helps! -Joe
Also you'll probably also have issues trying to convert your old VHS movie collection to DVD because most of the movies would probably be copyright protected.

Cannot copy my copy protected vhs videos on my samsung dvd recorder dvd-SH893M!! how can this be done?

Buy a 'VICE 1000' hardware unit, which overrides copyright protection, both on DVD and VHS. Connect between player and hard-drive on DVD recorder.
Google suppliers. Thoroughly, and utterly illegal and carries heavy penalties, for breaches of copyright.

I want to record a dvd from andother dvd player. I cant get it to work. help please.

you can record the output of the DVD player into the input of your DVD recorder, but I think the quality of the recording might be affected. Be sure to check copyrights before doing so.
Most DVD recorder/VHS combo allow to attach an external DVD and copy from the one to the other (assuming there is no copyright protection). In case there is no automatic copying option you can still copy manually -by plugging the external device and play while you record into the internal one.

I'm having trouble recording Disney VHS to DVD. I get an error message that says cannot record.

I'm not sure if this is the answer, but I have the same unit and in the directions it mentions not being able to record anything from a copyrighted source. I would assume Disney products are copyrighted and might have a feature that prevents these machines from accepting the signal.

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.

It's a protected video. The VRD-MC5 will not burn a VHS or input that has been protected.
