I have just taken delivery of a Sony DCR-PC9E camcorder. Very nice piece of kit, replaced my Panasonic NV55 stolen from Gatwick. Unlike the Panny, the Sony has analogue input, a very nice feature. Works perfectly, though I wondered whether anyone knew whether it was possible to overcome copy protection when working with DVDs? Not looking for responses about piracy etc, as I am only using it for the odd few seconds of image capture for my own creative purposes. I know I could record it onto a VCR and then copy from the VHS tape, but is there a way of doing it direct from the DVD?
