Question about Sony RDR-VX555
I am creating a DVD using multiple mini digital tapes (used in my Sony camcorder) One tape - recorded from a different camera - cannot be transferred to DVD. My recorder tells me the tape is "copy protected" - but the recording is just a home video recorded on a brand new Sony digital videocassette! How can I transfer this tape to DVD? Thanks in advance.
I took my unit back to electronic express a chain here in tennessee
the guy was baffled at first
then he got a firewire and plugged it into the ilink place on the front of the unit and it copies my old canon recorded tapes just fine
what happened??? who the heck knows --- somehow the chip that prevents the movie copying was reading my old canon recorded tape as copyright -- this somehow bypasses that
if i am not mistaken you can buy attachments to make sure they fit your type of camcorder - my new sony hi def camera came with one - so i had no problem
here is the other kicker --- WHEN I CALLED SONY AND ASKED IF THE ILINK HOOK UP WOULD MAKE THE DUBBING WORK -- THE IDIOT SAID NO he was dead wrong
i will never buy another sony in my life
i stil have not tried to tape movies to dvd and or vhs --- but i already have the machine so i'm stuck with it
what i'd like to know is which combo units do NOT have the blocking chip
could somebody update on the law about this
i hope this helps
please let me know
