What hatdware and software have you used for doing the above. I have lots of family tapes, especially ones of my son when he was a child, to convert. Am thinking of buying one from ebay. any info of your experience appreciated.
I have a Funai DRV-B2737 DVD/VCR Dual-Recorder with PDC that does the job of conversion. Purchased from Currys quite some time ago, so not sure if this model or similar are still available.
Also have video adapters, which were purchased from Hong Kong via eBay at a far less price than here in the UK. Haven't tried them out, but reports seem to offer good reviews, but you will require the additional components for conversions (VHS recorder/player etc).
I used this ezcap device from Amazon with the supplied Arcsoft software plus one of these and they worked fine for me on Win 7 64 bit. Same setup currently being used by brother-in-law on Win 7 32 bit. No need to load the drivers on the CD as Windows finds them automatically when you plug the ezcap in. Did change the audio driver though to USB Audio
Nontek/Diemmess if you use the VHS/DVD player system can you subsequently get the data from the DVD so that you can edit it to remove noisy/blank parts and maybe add titles etc?
The reason I went the capture way was just for that but if there is an easier way I would be interested. I realise that there is no difference in time as both methods of transferring require that the tape has to be run in real time.
Took out my vhs recorder which has not been used for over 10yrs. Plugged it in and it works a treat. They don't make it like they used to be eh?
Anyway bought all necessary components for the job next week. Thanks all.
