Same problem, have many, many VHS tapes bought legit, VHS box going kaput, refuse to buy another. Tried copying to DVD recorder “Sony RDR-GX360”. “Cannot copy protected recording”. Now, this is going to be a big problem, tapes tried copying are old “at least 10 years”, out of print on DVD format. Latest this morning, “Last of the Dogmen, 1995”, last printed to DVD in 1998. Are the producers saying “scr** you”, do without or has someone come up with a way round this problem. Are all our VHS tapes just so much junk for the landfill. Any ideas?
