I've had this machine since May and I'm still learning! If I burn a DVD-R on my E85 using the high speed dubbing I can't make further copies of the disc on my laptop. However, if I transfer recordings made without the High Speed dubbing enabled (ie real time dubbing) then I can make copies of the DVD-Rs. My laptop's software (Roxio's Toast) says that the former are "copy protected". Anyone else noticed this?
