Transferring from VHS to DVD

  Granddad Ray 16:28 02 Jan 2006

Follwing the kind advice from pj123 I bought a Liteon 5600. It records very well but I did not realise the record mode was VCD creating only DVD-V and DVD-VR dics. Thse cannot be read on my PC and therefore I can neither edit nor duplicate as I wanted to do. Is there anything I can do. Would any of the many video editing programmes facilitate the reading of VCD files?

Sorry, don't know what you are talking about.

My Liteon is the 5006 not 5600 and it records a perfectly good DVD that can be played back on any DVD Player/Recorder (PC or Standalone) providing it has been "finalised".

Are you sure this is the one you got?

I have the same, but you must Finalise the disc to use it on other players as you say ;-)

I copied a film off a VCR with it and did copies with Nero, all were perfect.

Sorry pj123 - sticky fingers, I have got the 5006. I thought I had finalised the disc. I will try another recording and see how I get on. As is evident from my queries, I am fairly new to anything more sophisticated than word processing and spreadsheets. Thanks for your patience.

Thanks dadyassa. I found a whole plethora of Nero progammes from the link you kindly provided. Which version do you use and can you edit on it?

You are using DVD disks to record on to and not CDs aren't you????

you could also buy a stand alone dvd recorder, connect the video to it and copy the video direct to dvd.

Thats what he did.

Ray put the disc you did back in the recorder, press the guider button on remote and arrow down to finalize and select.

I use version 6 Nero, the only thing it doesn`t do is make a cup of tea ;-)
