backing up store-bought VHS tapes to DVD disc

Specs: Windows XP
I have old vhs movies that I want to convert to DVD's for back up purposes and because they occupy too much space (I have a small house) I think they are copy righted this is not to sell, they are for home use only. Someone asked a question before and there was an answer from "PISTAL" back in January 29, 2006 at 00:29:22 Pacific (THE QUESTION NOT ACCEPTING ADDITIONAL COMMENTS) about buying a dvd recorder for 150-50 rebate so cost 100 at Radio Shack LiteOn LVW 5006 that worked for him.
I looked it up and Radio Shack no longer sells it. So I was thinking about ordering it, but I dont want to order unless I am sure it will work to conver store bought (not home movies) movies. IF PISTAL READS THIS PLEASE REPLY. Any help from someone in the community would be greatly appreciated.

You can record any analog single without limits.
Note with VHS don't get your hopes up for quality and you may get a frame sync issue.

You don't need a VHS-DVD combo machine. Just connect the VHS machine to a DVD recorder use audio and video cables and choose the highest DVD speed that will allow the program to fit on the disk. Finalize the disk after.

I tried it and it will only copy for 1 second and I got a message about copyright. Again, I want to back up old store bought movies. I am still looking for a way to do this. Thanks for your input

You must have a new machine with drm detection.
