Eqp,JAP D900T,160GB firewire hard drive.(as reviewed MAY)what the best and easy way to transfer old vhs home movie to dvd

  TomJerry 12:36 16 Mar 2005

work the same way as VHS, cost from £99+

if you want to use PC, you need a TV capture card, cost from £30+.

with recordable DVD player, one hour video take one hour to convert

with computer, one hour video takes two hours or more to convert

Agree with TomJerry. I started with a Capture card (still got it) to copy all my old Beta tapes to DVD and a 3 hour VHS/Beta tape takes around 7 hours to complete. I now have a stand-alone DVD recorder and the transfer is real time, plus a few minutes to finalise as and when necessary.

Plus, of course, I can also record from the TV direct to DVD.

one hour video will take at least two hours to convert, one hour capture and another hour encording and burning.

LiteOn LVW-5006B All-Write Home Dvd Recorder will do better job and more useful £144 click here

Here we are again agreeing with TomJerry. I have the Liteon LVW 5005, so simple to use and does the job admirably. I got mine at ebuyer for £120 but doesn't seem to be available anymore, possibly because it is now 5006?
