Hi Peter missed your previous response sorry about that. The clips are relatively small as it is. These are snippets of home movies that we recorded from a DVD disc onto the hard drive of the DVD recorder to then create a DVD with these smaller clips combined on it. The clips would be approx 5-10 minutes each some much shorter and some around 10-15. As I said on the disc navigator when the various recorded items show up they have a small blue "X" in the bottom corner. The message simply says "unable to copy" Thanks
hi Rick thanks for your reply
Do you mean the disc that I am trying to copy onto? Or the disc I am trying to copy?
The recorded material is on a DVD now copied from the camcorder to the DVD player and then copied to standard DVD which plays fine on a variety of dvd players. The camcorder records and plays back directly to a hard drive within it or to a memory card not DVD so in answer to your question we cant play it in the camera.
It appears that somewhere in the process of copying the material off the DVD player hard drive to a DVD disc (which worked without any problem) something has activated a copy protection thing that now prevents me from copying.
Unfortunately it's not letting me do anything, transferring or copying. I can play it without any problem from the hard drive just can't move it anywhere. I tried running it through another DVD player to the TV it allowed me to record 10 seconds of footage but then the copy protected notice showed up and it stopped the recording.
The files are a collection of various video clips of family home movies taken from a number of DVDs. We were trying to take them off the original disks put them onto the hard drive (no problem here) and then assemble them on to a new DVD (where the copying problem/restriction occurred)
Short answer all on different disks & home movie clips we recorded
