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.

I had this same issue...I bet you're using DVD-R, am I correct?
Apparently you can't copy video from DVD-R to the HD Writer. Period. Just can't do it. (Would be nice if they mentioned this in the manual.)
You can only use DVD-RW and must format the disc to VR format, not Video format.
I'm using a program called Handbrake (free) which I think can convert your .vob files (from the Video_TS folder on your DVD) to quicktime files, or similar, so that you can actually do something with the video...
Best of luck, I'm really no expert, and I probably won't return to this page, so a reply to me is likely not going to be read by me...

SOURCE: Audio Problem with Firewire
I've tried every possible switch setting combination and have come to the conclusion that the firewire option board is in need of repair. I ended up solving the problem by getting a Sony Palm Cam from Wal-Mart on sale and use that to capture my audio and video. Then, to send the tape to the network, once I'm done editing, I export to miniDV on the Sony and copy that tape to DVCPro using analog AV connections.
It's not exactly an elegent solution, but it works.......

The camera does not write the 16:9 code properly in the mpeg so Windows media player does not recognize it properly. There is a little utility called index.zip that you can download which has a file sdcopy.exe which copies the file from the camera and properly writes the code. Then any current video editing software will recognize it and display it properly. It is also a handy utility that I prefer over the software that came with the camera.

I have to agree with XELIAM regarding finishing the disk, under the DVD "FUNCTIONS" selection from the remote. I also use the SLYSOFT products to transfer my videos to what ever other mode of video I wish to have, whether iPOD (MP4), or DIVX (AVI) or loads of other options. Slysoft makes a GREAT product
