I am trying to copy some shop bought VHS tapes to DVD before my VHS player packs up and I can't view them any more. However when I try to copy them using my DVD recorder they give a message that the VHS tape cannot be copied. I have succesfully copied other tapes ( including shop bought ones ) using the same method. It seems some kind of signal is being sent via the scart lead preventing a copy being made.
Does anyome know how I can get round this perhaps by disconnecting a pin inside the scart, but which one?
I will be out now for most of today but will look at this thread again late today or tomorrow hopefully someone will know the answer to my problem

All modern commercial VHS tapes have copy protection. If your VHS player is giving up, there are still outlets that sell them. You best bet is to buy a new one rather than (effectively) pirate the tapes.

If you want to copy for your own personal use, you may be able to do it via the RF out, if you have a tuner in your PC.

Otherwise the protection operates as soon as the video outlet is used.
This will normally only give mono sound output.
