i perhaps should have said my o/s is xp and i am using a composite cable to transfer video from 8mm camcorder to computer with a seperate audio cable for sound

This is a known problem when transferring to DVD. The audio and video are processed seperately. I've seen a forum on this subject, I'll have a look for it.

You are not doing anything wrong. There are so many previous posting about this problem but here is one you should read to start with. click here I started off with Pinnacle Studio 8 and the sync was awful. The updated Pinnacle Studio 8.12 made a slight difference but still not spot on. I also tried Nero 6 but I didn't get any sound at with that so I am about to try MyDVD.

a very complex subject to discuss here. Without purchasing some expensive equipment, here is a very good workaround. click here
Print it off and have a good read. Then if you feel confident, by all means proceed. Have fun.

This is a US site, you should be able to find one where you are. click here

It mentions 'lip sync', which is what you should look for in any spec.

thanks for all the help and advice - i think the problem from what iv just read is the audio sampling rate .iv been using the standard sampling rate of 44.1 i will adjust sampling rate slightly and see if that works as per "dog tracks" click here advice. i will let you know how i get on.
thanks again for all your help

hi i thought i would tell u how i finaly sorted my sync problem out - turning off as many running processes as possible gave me a big improvement and when i increased audio sampling rate from 41000 to 48000 it was perfect ( even though my integrated sound has a limit of 41000. try and figure that! )

  ted bear 12:54 20 May 2004

should be 44100 to 48000 sampling rate
