If it says on the box it is Vista compatable then it should do the job. I think the burn times can be a bit long so do some more checking before you go for it.

Better off using or getting a dvd recorder and using that

I went for a DVD recorder that also has a VCR built in and can record from tape to dvd and dvd from tape. BUT some dvd recording will not play on the pc/laptop even when finalized. Do not seem to have a problem if I use RW discs.

Got your Mail. I have only used this on XP so no Idea if it works with Vista

I use Dazzle Fusion USB capture unit:

I have already transferred all my Beta tapes to DVD and am now in the process of transferrng my VHS tapes.

I don't use the Pinnacle Studio software that came with the unit as it takes too long (7 hours for a 3 hours tape) and also the sound sync is out by about 2 seconds.

I use MyDVD:

I don't have version 10 but my version (5.4) does the same job and a lot quicker than Pinnacle Studio.

Although it takes the length of the tape to capture in the first place it doesn't very long to process and I always make an mpeg file and then use Nero to burn it to DVD.

Would i be able to use this DAZZLE DIGITAL VIDEO CREATOR 90 with Vista. Could I get a driver or whatever to be able to use it with Vista 32

Unless they have improved them in the last few years I really wouldn't bother with the Dazzle. Its a while since I used mine because it takes at least 4 hours to convert each hour of tape, I ended up throwing the thing away.

Far better to buy a vcr/dvd combi as suggested by eedcam, that's what I did eventually.
