I have an old VHS Box set (NTSC format) which I want to capture on my laptop and burn to DVD to preserve it for future viewing.At present I use my video to feed into my camcorder and capture from my camcorder. This works fine for UK VHS and my own recordings made via my camcorder.I can get the 5 tapes copied onto DVD for £25 each but wonder if anybody else can come up with another suggestion.
If your camcord can't read ntsc you can't capture. If it can you'll have to re-render to PAL (takes about twice as long to render 1 format to another even if avi).
MichelleC,My camcorder can playback NTSC cassettes but cannot receive an NTSC signal, is that what you mean by "can't read NTSC"?
Yes. The only other way is to get a 'capture card' which can read ntsc and pal, but even if vcr can playback ntsc too I'm not sure if vcr can transfer ntsc signal to capture card.
You could try this place click here but whether they will accept "copyright" material I don't know. They charge £10 each.
Thanks pj123, I'll give that a go.
