On a MD513 can't dub DVD to HDD from a commercial DVD. D.Dubbing does nothing. When I press "Title" on the remote, all I can ever get is the top menu to display and it's not on the 513 title screen. I thought it might be copy protected, so I tried copying it on the DVD drive of my PC using Nero 6 software and it copied perfectly and the copy gets the same results as with the original. Am I making a mistake or is there some level of CP on that DVD that blocks dubbing onto the 513 HDD? Is there a workaround?
Also, the 513 manual is a killer. Besides the "12 top errors in the owner's manual" is there other documentation about manual errors? I thought I saw in an earlier post that someone had written a corrected manual for the series so owners would know how these things really work.
Here's an index of clickable info and help files on these uinits.
Dubbing home-made or other non-protected DVDs with internal drives is described in Section 6.
Dubbing (commercial) DVDs with copy protection (CP) requires an external player with a filter/CP stripper in between units like those described in Section 4.h.
