    when connecting my samsung VP-D 590i DV camera to my VHS player to
    make my old music videos digital, I often get a "copyright control"
    message on the DV-screen an digitalization stops. This do not happen
    all of the time, but quite frequent, so that i have problems
    converting my old VHS tapes to digital form.

    Your equipment is likely working properly. It is designed to
    prevent you from making copies of material for which you do
    not hold a right-to-copy ("copyright").

    You can likely use a different piece of equipment to convert
    from VHS analog to DV digital (like a Canopus ADVC-100
    which is reputed to have a hidden Macrovision-defeat mode)
    Or you can find a "video stabilizer" which strips out the
    Macrovision encoding before feeding it into your DV camera.

    My Sony WV-DR5 is sometimes so eager to prevent copying that it stops
    me from dubbing tapes of my own work! Once it even denied recording
    video of COLOR BARS!

    This DRM nonsense has to end.

    Regards,
