Slide shows TO video tape

  dave h 20:15 11 Dec 2003

I've been asked by a friend if he can transfer his holiday snaps (Digital) to a VHS tape , so that he can show them to family who don't have DVD players, but do have VCR's.

I'm not sure if it's possible. Is it?

Thanks for any info

dave h,

have not used this method myself, but worth a try.

Does your friends digicam have an output to enable him to display his photos on the TV? If so connect up and then try recording on his vcr while playing his show.

Otherwise he will need a TV out on his graphics card, and a slide show prog which will output on the TV out to his vcr. (Problem with this is that some cards with TV out will not show on monitor at same time. He will be recording blind.

If his digicam has output to TV there should be no reason why he cannot connect directly to his VCR if the VCR has a video in connection.

Sorry about the last post, I only saw the one immediately above my post. I'll carefully read both, and post again. Thanks for the input.
