    VCR to DVD Recorder is the easiest way. Remember that owning the vcr doesn't automatically licence you to make a dvd.

    Unfortunatley, I don't think by-passing copy protection on material that might not be licensed to be copied is something that you should get into at a school.

    Bit like them asking you to installing an extra copy of office without a licence

    regards

    If you (personally) want to be responsible. Then yes, we used a DVD->VCR to convert licensed videos to streaming format for your school (easier to take from dvd than from VHS - backup also)

    However to "copy" to dvd for teachers? I wouldn't do it. We let them know about copyright and all and said we couldn'd do it.

    If you get the teacher to check with the publishing company then write a note to say they have checked (keep for later) then even if they dont check but sign - they will be responsible for the copying.
