Copy protected recording



I recorded a movie from the TV (cable) on a Toshiba RD-XS35 machine, and after editing out the commercials, I tried to copy it onto a DVD but the following message appeared.

“The operation was terminated because copy protected data was detected.”

Is there some way to override this restriction?


I have had this issue before as well, I know that Sony dvd recorders are well-known for having copy protection problems. It may be due to the status of the disc you are trying to make a copy of. Is the disc finalized? Is it a dvd-r/rw?
