I just brought a new desktop with vista (32-bit verison) and a AverMedia Tuner card. Using media center I can copy vhs tapes to file. my problem is that I can't copy copy protected vhs tapes using media center. So, I just want to know is there a programe that will at lease let me capture or view copy protected VHS tapes? I have a program that I can use to capture it but I need to view and of course hear it. The program that I use to Capture is ZD Soft Video recorder. Can anyone help?
The VHS tapes are likely protected by Macrovision. If you wish to capture exerts under the guise of Fair Use, or if you yourself are the rights holder to the protected content, you will have to find a way to bypass macrovision. Devices are sold for this (and other purposes). You might have some luck if you ask AverMedia support in the event that they have built in a bypass routine.
