Help with HP DC3000 Moviewriter

I purchased a HP DC3000 Moviewriter and a SIMA Color Corrector Pro Series (not SCC-2). I have a bookshelf of VHS tapes I own that I would like to archive to DVD and then be rid of the tapes. The SIMA unit does not get around the copy protection so money wasted there. I searched online and found a post that recommended I edit a file in the capture software but that did noty work either. Any suggestions that won’t cost a fortune?

The HP DC3000 Moviewriter can only deal with analog sources that are not copy-protected. Your VHS tapes are probably MacroVision copy-protected. In order to get rid of the MacroVision copy-protection you require a thing like this.
