Hi. I have a Sony external DVD burner for my camcorder but I thought it would be great to covert my Star Wars and Empire Strikes Back old VHS tapes to DVD particularly because Star Wars in it's original form is not available on DVD (I do own the new version collection sets on VHS and DVD). I just like to see Han Solo blow away Gredo without Gredo taking a sloppy first shot and Jabba in the added scene looks stupid in "A New Hope". Well, luckily Star Wars converted over fine but the Empire Strikes Back gave me a "Recording Prohibited" as I ruined 2-3 blank DVDs. Well, I haven't seen anyone post a work around for this but I have found several people who've experienced this issue. If you know of a fix that would be wonderful. Please let me know. I though we bought these external DVD burners to 1. easily get our miniDV tapes onto DVD and 2. convert our old VHS tapes to DVD. What is the story with that? Some archaic copywrite protection that we can't work around which they had the forsight to create in such a way as to be picked up on technology 25 years into the future. B.S. and that's putting it more mildly then was my original intent. Thank you for your time.
