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 Some of these tapes are 10-12 years old and i'm afraid they may get outdated and break the tapes.

Quite understandable, however, we don't help with that. All I can advise: buy the DVD of those movies.

Remember you are on CBS so you can bet we don't discuss that here. Be sure to google it and rant about the issue.
