I've been looking at products like EZ Grabber and KWorld DVD Maker as I want to transfer my old VHS videos onto DVD. The reviews are very mixed. Not sure what to do now. Can anyone offer some advice? Cheers
must say I agree with ICF. I was advised that going via the computer route the transfer procedure takes quite a long time. Mind you I don't have the best spec'd computer! In the end I got the sony 870 dvd recorder in a sale.
I bought a cheap Samsung DVD recorder which also has the facility to play and copy VHS to DVD. It records DVD's wonderfully well and also makes quite good copies of the VHS tapes. Only problem I have is trying to edit the DVD disks as the type of MP2 (I think) the DVD's are finished in, is not recognised by Windows Movie Maker
I purchased a DVD/VCR recorder combie, Daewoo from Ebay £50 new, still sealed. Was a bit fiddley to set up but once running all you do is, put in DVD, machine reads it, once reconised, put in video press one button, "marked video to DVD" done so so simple. then transer your movies etc to Computer using the DVD.
'how to do it' article on page 126 of PCA's latest magazine, issue 160. Carrie-Ann Skinner lists all the requirements needed and full instructions on how to move VHS tape material onto digital disc. TC.
Alternatively got told on 8th Aug I won a copy of Magix Rescue Your Videotapes in the PCA Broadband survey. Hasn't arrived yet but if you are in no hurry wait until I get it and I'll tell you what it's like to use.
Thanks guys, I'll have a look at the article and I would also be very interested in hearing about the Magix Rescue... Will buy a 2nd hand dvd/vcr combi if I have to but really don't want another lump of equipment. Just spent months getting rid of stuff and buying integrated equipment. Unfortunately not with DVD recording!! Cheers
