Please help. To cut a long story a bit shorter I was given a video tape with a relative's wedding on it. I managed to record the video on to the hard disk of a dvd recorder I have (which is attached to my main tv in the house). I then transferred the recording on to a dvd disc.
Unfortunately, the sound is awful - very faint and not much difference is made when you turn the volume up on the tv - apart from more hissing. Is there any free software out there that I could maybe download that would allow me to "fix" the sound and make it louder and reduce this hissing? (I have Nero 7 on my computer). Thanks.
One more thing to try before committing to another disc . Unplug the video connection and record separately the sound only. Clean this up in an audio editor [Audacity or Dexter- Jan PCA disk] And experiment with recording the video side separately and making a Disk Image or Mpeg to your Hard rive. playing around a lot is the only way to find out what can be achieved
If you have Nero then this has the ability to copy a DVD and increase the sound level of the copy by up to 200%. Also check your DVD recorder settings. Mine has an Input Audio setting which allows me to increase or decrease the Audio Input volume by +-6db
Thanks to you all for your ideas and sorry for the delay in responding.
As I have Nero, I may look into trying to increase the sound level to see if this works first before I start fiddling about with leads(that is, if I can find where this function is within Nero as I have Nero 7 Essentials).
I've had a look in my Nero 7 Essentials software - but can't find anywhere that gives me the ability to copy a DVD and increase the sound level of the copy by up to 200% - as advised by Confab - can anyone give me more specific directions as to where this would be within Nero please?
