I have numerous VHS Tapes which I want to transfer to DVD and also have an old 1986 (but working) JVC GR-C7 VHS(C) Video Camera/Recorder which I might use to record directly to DVD (via presumably my external 500Gb Hard Drive) and for which I have the camera's AV OUT to Video IN and AUDIO IN Connector. Hopefully I can use the in-built Windows Movie Maker existing on my XP.Editing is n ot of primary importance but a better storage media is. It seems that I need a "Device" to link my analogue JVC Super VHS Video Recorder via a USB2.0 socket on my PC and I assume the "device" would also work similarly with the Video Camera for direct recording to the PC as the camera would be then acting as a VCR. Can any body comment on this please and recommend a suitable "Device". I regret that I am not at all "technical" as you would have gathered but I shall try to follow any ideas. Many thanks. Buckland. Apologies for posting this incorrectly on ConsumerWatch so here it is again.
Personal opinion get a dvd recorder then transfer to dvd .Then import the dvd's as and if you need them to the pc to edit with one of the editing software like adobe or ulead or magix all with free trials . No quality advantage or time saving going through the pc first . Wmm will only handle avi so you will have pretty big files if you go that route then you'll need to export them as dv-avi (13 G/byte per hours footage before you can burn to dvd But only personal opinion
