Copy And Covert Tivo Files

Question

I am using the 'Copy and Convert Video' option in Roxio Creator 2010. The only reason I got this program is because my old easy media creator 9 copy and convert stopped accepting my Tivo files. Now in Creator 2010, when I choose the TIVO folder, it states that there are drm/protected content in the folder and that those files will not be listed. I have the latest version of TIVO Desktop installed and running.

 

Can anyone please tell me what is the problem???

 

Please and thank you!!

-C!

The problem is there - some Tivo programs ARE drm and copy protected - there's nothing you can do with them

 

This is down to Tivo themselves - sorry

Thanks... then what's the point of having the program to convert them. I have over 50 files from the last few years that were saved from my tivo. There is no way they can all be drm protected is there?

 

Has anyone had any success with resolving this issue by going back to an older version of Tivo Desktop?

 

Using Windows XP or 7

 

Thanks again!

Not all Tivo files are copy protected - but only Tivo would know which are and which aren't.

Thanks guys.. I appreciate all the feedback and I did read the information at the link provided by cdanteek. Forgive me if I am dwelling, but this still does not make much since to me and I am not a newb at this process or anything, but all the shows transfer from tivo to pc just fine, they just wont convert using creator 2010. If the copyright rules listed on that site applied, wouldn't they just not download from my tivo at all?

 

thanks

It's hard to say - a commercial DVD will play fine in the computer - but if you try to copy it, it won't copy.

 

There could be an internal 'marker' that blocks it (I don't know because I never tried looking inside one to find out - even if I knew where to look)

 

Apple iTunes do something on those lines - you can play them but can't burn them with Roxio (you can with Apple's own software but that's another matter)

I have the exact same issue. I just purchased Creator 2011, but I still have the same problem. This is a VERY FRUSTRATING issue because this is the one and only reason that I decided to go ahead and purchase the product. I hope someone can help me with this because I have read many bad ratings on this product, and I'm beginning to wonder if I made the wrong choice. If anyone can help, that would be SO appreciated. Thanks!

Your problem is the same as what? You haven't said

 

You are aware of course that some Tivo programs are encrypted and can't be copied?

I have the same problem, both with TiVo files transferred years ago using TiVo Desktop (files which could be converted under EMC 10 and Vista), and files transferred recently under Win 7. EMC 10 under Win 7 sees the files with DRM and will not convert them. I purchased Creator 2011 in January 2011, and I still have the same problem.

 

Were you able to fix the problem and convert the files?

If they are DRM they are protected and no legitimate software will copy them - it's illegal to break encryption

 

Additionally EMC 10 will NOT work in Windows 7
