Unable to dub old non-copyrighted videos

Hello,

A friend just purchased a combo DVD/VHS player/recorder and has started dubbing
old videotapes (videos of family events, televised sporting events, etc). Some
have gone through without problem, but a couple of videotapes will not copy- the
DVD recorder displays the message about copyrighted materials. These tapes are
definitely not copyrighted, but they are old (early 1990s). They play decently
on the TV, but the DVD burner is giving that erroneous message. (The tapes are
intact and the protection tabs are untouched.)

Any help, comments? Thanks in advance.

.... Bob

something is triggering Macrovision - try playing the tapes on another
player and feed the outputs to the DVD burner and see if you get the same
results. If you do then it's time to invest in a Macrovision defeat box..
