VCR to DVD Conversion

I'm not sure if this is appropriate for Experts Exchange but figure I'll throw it out. I have a Panasonic DVD/VCR combo player and am working on converting some of my old VCR recordings to DVD. One of them won't work becasue it's copyrighted material which blocks the tape from recording.

If you're wondering it's AC/DC's classic rock opera, "Fly on the Wall". It's never been released on DVD or I'd just order one myself. I'm not looking to become a DVD pirate, just to convert this one for my own use. Is there a way to make the copy?

If you don't want to use a capture card you can try connecting the RCA Audio/Video outputs on your existing VHS/DVD combo to the A/V inputs on a separate DVD player/burner.  Of course this is additional "hardware" as well if you don't already have a separate DVD recorder.  Good luck.

No, the  only VCR we have left is the one in the combo, and that's the only DVD with record capability.  Is there any way to manipulate the tape itself?

I'm going to close this out and re-list with more specific wording for what I'm seeking. I'm also accepting your solution and awarding the points since you did provide a solution based on how I stated my original question.

Thanks!
