Dvd recorder has copy protected message

Some of my old vhs tapes copy perfectly then with others the machine gives a copy protected message and won't copy them. these are movies that i purchased and i just want to copy them to the dvd format for storage issues. are there codes that i can program into the unit? is there a piece of equipment that i can purchase that will unlock it? help. I really can't get much use from this if i can't get it to record my old commercially produced tapes to dvd.

    I need very specific steps to follow. For example, I do have another dvd player. Exactly how would I set this up to make the copy from a copy protected vhs tape to the second dvd player? Maybe a diagram would also be helpful.

    thanks, Linda

Hi,

the tapes that you can,t copy are protected, manufacturers used to put a high pitched frequency on the tapes themselves, which would in theory cause a scrambled frequency. the only suggestion i have for you, is to play the tape onto a television, and use a camcorder to record the image from tv to camcorder, then camcorder to pc, and use some good editing software to create the dvd.
alternatively, you could try using a second dvd player, and use your recorder as the second device.
The final but more expensive option, is to look for a way to input the recorder, direct to PC. which you would use picture out, to graphics card input, and the red and white ( Audio ) for the stereo Sound output. does your player or tv have An spdif connection or similar, you may be able to output to camera, rather than to dvd.
Where theres a will, theres a way, but these are a few options.

Bear in mind, it is illegal to copy protected content. However as you own the originals, this information is provided to enable you, to backup your Purchased Content.

Thankyou for using fixya.

    Hi Linda,



    I can only put suggestions for users to try.

    as i,m sure youre aware, the majority of fixya experts answer questions as a voluntary service.

    As for myself i get satisfaction, from helping people that have problems.

    basics are your dvd/vcr would become player 1. then you would connect dvd recorder 2 as the second device. if your dvd has 21 pin scart plugs. you go from dvd 1 to dvd 2 with scart, then scart to television, so that you can see the output.

    it may work, may not but always worth a try.



    regards mike.

Will this model record from the vhs tape to the dvd?


You don't state the manufacturer or model number in your question, thus we cannot answer. I will say that many do, but there is a caveat. If the the VHS tape is a commercially made movie, chances are it has copy protection on it. Most machines will sense this copy protection and will refuse to copy the protected VHS tape to DVD. This was done to prevent piracy. Home recorded tapes and non-protected tapes will usually work ok. Do not confuse write protection with copy protection however. Write protection is merely the tab on the tape that prevents re-recording of the tape. Copy protection is recorded right onto the tape itself and is read by the machine during playback.

I have a Toshiba dvr 7 vcr dvd recorder. It occasionally gives an error message 85 when I am trying to copy a VHS tape to DVD. What does this mean and is there a way around it?


Commercial movie VHS tapes have copyright protection added to the tape. There is hardware in the recorder (mandated by law) that will sense this signal and not allow copying of these tapes to another tape or any other media. There are hackers that have built devices and modified equipment to circumvent this, but you risk legal action if caught.

Is it possible to copy video from a vhs to a dvd?


If the DVD drive is a recorder, yes. If it is a player only, no. If the tape is copy-protected, recording to a DVD recorder is not possible. Assuming the tapes are not copy-protected, and you are using a DVD recorder with the correct format DVDs (DVD-R for example), you shouldn't have any problems transferring old VHS tapes to DVD.

VR5940 DVD Recorder/VCR-Thinks a regular VHS tape is copyright protected


Don't know your machine, but is it possible that it's seeing your source tape as write protected (missing tab) and so assuming it should not be copied to the DVD?

VHS backups on DVD


Your VCR will NOT copy any commercialy published tapes to DVD disks. There is a protection built in to every sync line of the video on the VCR tapes. This is known as MacroVision protection.

The machine that you bought has been designed to block anything with MacroVision, and anything with any other industry standard copy protections. The codes for this are permanently burned in to the main uPC of the machine.

The publishers of the tapes do not know who is copying for what purpose, and how many are being copied. Under copyright laws they have the right to to take whatever action necessary to protect all their publications.

Copying vhs to dvd


The write-protect tab on the cartridge is set to "PROTECT" or the disc is protected witht the "DVD Management" settings.
Some video tapes on the market(including rental videos) are copy-protected to prevent illegal reproductions. Copy-protected video tapes cannot be properly recorded.
You cannot use the copying function when the FUNCTIONS window, the Scheduled Recording List screen, etc. are displayed.
I hope this information can be of some help to you all. Ms Tanya 2/12/08 3:54AM CST.

Panasonic DMR-E55 Won't Let me Record my own VHS


Hi

This is probably caused by an irregular magnetic encoding pattern being generated by the tape itself. If the DVD recorder does not fully recognise the code, it may incorrectly interpret it as copy protected. If there is any tape flutter or there are tape edits, these can contribute to the problem. In addition to this magnetic imprinting can occur on old tapes that have been stored for a number of years without being spooled. basically wrong bits of the tape get magnetised. You can sometimes hear an echo on old tape recordings caused by imprinting.

You could try the following:

1) If available, try using a different video machine to play back and record from.

2) Whatever video machine you use, put your tape in, fully fast forward and rewind a couple of times, then try your recording again. This is particularly important if you haven't used the tape for some time.

3) If it fails again, check to see if it always fails at the same point.

4) If it does, try winding forward a little and then try to resume recording.

5) If you can record it means that a short section of tape is giving a spurious code to your dvd recorder and confusing it.

6) Use a re-recordable dvdrw to make a master. You won't keep wasting discs if the recording stops. You will also be able to produce another dvd from your master and edit it if your recording ends up in a number of segments.

7) Always use the highest quality setting possible when producing a master.

8) If all else fails, if you have a friend with another dvd recorder, maybe try that.

Have fun....

Dubbing vhs to dvd


Easy. Connect RCA lead from video/audio OUT on the VCR to video/audio IN on the DVD recorder. Set DVD recorder source to VIDEO then press play on the VCR and record on the DVD recorder.
