  1. I just bought a new RCA dual vhs to dvd machine which works fine for my own tapes from tv. My problem is when copying movie vhs (about 30 of them) which won't copy (pops up with "video is copy protected".
    Any way of getting around this? Some of these tapes are 10-12 years old and i'm afraid they may get outdated and break the tapes.
    Thanks in advance for any help.

    hech54 is quite right, but to give you a more verbose answer...

    It is possible to do this, but NOT with your VHS/DVD combo unit. You'll need separate VHS and DVD recorders. Additionally if your VCR does not come with a TBC (time base corrector - only expensive, older VCRs had these in general) you may have to buy one to get movie VHS tapes to copy. As you've learned, studios were pretty serious about preventing VHS tape copying. That hasn't become any cheaper or easier to do over time.
