I don't know if this is the right place for this, but you guys can move it if it isn't. I'm looking for blank vhs tapes or tapes that were blank and then were used. So basically no tapes that have movies on them by a studio, the type you buy in a store. You can't record on those. I need about 200 of them. So if you got any, let me know and we will work something out. [email protected] Thanks.

Yeah, you can record on them. I used to record widescreen versions of movies from rented laserdiscs onto my original vhs tape, back when vhs was still acceptable to watch movies.
You just put a piece of tape over the little square tab that you normally break free on blank tapes. I never had a problem recording on them, they looked fine.

I was referring to the VHS tapes that studious use to put there movies on. Like if you went and bought a VHS movie at a store or something. They put copy protection on their tapes to stop you from copying the movies, and that copy protection doesn't let you use the tape to record other things. You can still record on them, but the quality is very very bad.

That's the first thing I thought of, too!
