Who can help me?
I use Coral VideoStudio x6. I tried to capture my homevideo's. The third tape give a message: Dit bestand kan niet worden vastgelegd omdat het auteursrechtelijk beschermd is. In English: This file can not be stored because it is copyrighted.
Why this message, as the tape has been made by myself? A VHS-C tape!

look for a little switch on the end of the tape cartridge. it prevents the tape from being copied.
Sometimes a tape can send a weak signal that the capture device/software interprets as macrovision protection.
Try a different capture program.
You do not give any details of your capture device etc.
But you can check out the tools section for various programs.
It all comes down to what drivers your device uses. ie DirectShow or WDM
Another thing. Are you using a VHS-C adapter ? Can you connect the camera direct to the capture device ?
No I don't have the VHS-C camera anymore.
I bought an USB converter/stick called EZcap. Attached was a Ulead capture program. Nowadays Ulead is called Coral. Now I use Coral VideoStudio Pro 6x. Before this I used Nero. Nero and Ulead gave synchronization problems. Coral VideoStudio pro 6x worked properly for the normal VHS-tapes. Good quality film and sound. The VHS compact tape's give only a problem at the moment. And yes I do use an VHS-C adaptor in a JVC HR-DVS1 recorder (VHS/miniDV combi-recorder)
In the Device Manager I found for "WD Drive Mangement devices": "WD SES Device".
Is this the info you pointed to?
If it's what I think it is (what was suggested in post #3 above), you will likely end up needing to get a TBC for it to be truly fixed. If this is only a problem for ONE tape, though, I'd suggest just sending it to a conversion lab.
The drivers for the Ezcap will be found under audio/video controllers.
I do not own a Ezcap so I do not know what they support. I suggest you try various capture programs. So will work. Others will not. Start with virtualdub - plenty of topics on here to help you set this up.
Corel (not Coral ) software is, despite what many will write on here, quite good but it is also quite sensitive when it comes down to macrovision, or in your case 'fake' macrovision detection.
But I will concur with Cornucopia. Depends on how many of these VHS-C tapes are giving problems. A suitable TBC (Time Base Corrector) could cost more than sending these tapes to a transfer service.
Wonder if the VHS-C tape was recorded in EP mode. These have been proven to be problematic for me.
There is one other possible solution.
Some PCI capture cards are known to ignore macrovision. One example is the Hauppuage WinTV Express which I have in my system.
These cards are not supported beyond WinXP
- High Definition Audio Device
- IDT Hight definition Audio CODEC
- USB 2861 Device
- USB EMP Audio Device
USB 2861 Device = EZCapture
Properties does not show if it DirectShow or WDM
I tried to figure out what the diference is between these two systems.
Thanks so far. I'll try different capture programs for sure. And I''m convinced by you all that ist must be the TBC.
