I load the DVD in question in my standard SONY DVP-S530D player. I connect, via s-video to my Hi 8 camcorder. I’m able to record to Hi 8 with no problems. Same goes for my VCR. As a test I tried most of my other DVDs and usually get a “Copy Protection: Unable to Record” message on my camcorder or a jumpy/discolored screen on my VCR. If I buy a DVD recorder, will I be able to record excerpts of the non-copy protected (???) DVD? Thanks in advance for any ideas.
