Transfer and edit Video tapes

  cruiser2 16:19 11 Nov 2006

What cables,software and or hardware do I need to transfer video tapes, using my existing VCR onto my PC. I then want to edit them before transfering the results onto DVDs. These are mainly of our grand daughter since she stared walking eight years ago.
I have Windows XP Home with 512Mb Memory
Am able to down load still images from my digital camera and alter them before printing.

You will need a capture device (internal card/external box) and software.

You will find some reviews here click here and pinnacle produce both hardware and software click here there are other producers like Ulead click here Roxio click here and Nero click here that you may also consider.

Looking at your PC spec., you may need more RAM. I don`t know what CPU you have but the faster the better for rendering and plenty of HDD space is a must; video eats up disk space.
