    This is my first time visiting the site, and I am blown away by all the technical knowledge! Wow, very intimidating! :p Anyway, here's my question (and I hope this is the right forum for this):

    I bought a very expensive DVD recently (over $100) that I would like to copy onto VHS tape as a backup, in case something happens to my DVD disc. Does anyone have a method for doing this?

    I've tried connecting my VCR to the TV to the DVD player with A/V cables, coaxial cables, and various combinations (even used a 2nd VCR) with no luck. The resulting copy came out all staticy with lines on the picture, etc -- must be copyright protected. The DVD itself says it's "viewable worldwide, no coding zone, NTSC multizone" whatever that means *lol*

    Anyone have any ideas? I don't have a DVD burner on my computer, so I'd like to try to find a realitively inexpensive way to make a copy onto just a regular old VHS tape. If anyone has any ideas, I would be very appreciative! :)

    wow, your like going backwards in time with this question. my idea that the dvd is copyrighted. to get rid of the copyright you would have to make a copy of the disc on another disc, but you said you don't have a burner. their may be some other way, but the only way I know gives you a bad picture when copying. which movie is it?

    It's a nature film....yeah, that's it a nature film ;) hehe; anyway, I'm still looking for answers in case anyone's feeling up to the challenge. Or maybe this thread is in the wrong forum? I guess it's more of an a/v dubbing question rather than DVD per se....?
