What's the best video to dvd program ?

  buckeye 20:18 04 Dec 2005

I am running XP Pro. 2ghz processor.80gb hard drive, 760 ddr ram. i purchased magix movie edit pro 2005 and surely there must be a quicker way to transfer video to dvd. E.G. after i have captured the video it takes me 6 hours to get it burned to disc, this is for 1hour 15mins of tape captured...am i doing something wrong or is the software just not good?

I bought a Cyberhome DVD recorder from local Asda, approx £68. It will copy a 1 hour 15 minute tape in 1 hour 15 minutes!! I gave up on transferring from tape to DVD via PC because of the processing times using Nero or Pinnacle or any of them! Literally took hours before, now dead simple.

I will be getting a DVD recorder before Xmas to replace Video...will give it a go..although I must say that the Magix movie edit pro is good for editing your films , adding music etc etc etc many thanks.

If you're starting off with full-quality video from a DV camera, 6 hours to convert 75 minutes to MPEG2 and transfer to DVD sounds about right.

If you're transferring VHS to DVD, then a DVD recorder is the best bet these days.

No, you're not doing anything wrong. That is the time it takes.

As above I also have a DVD recorder Liteon 5005 standalone recorder and it copies VHS/Beta tapes in real time. The only snag with this is that you cannot edit it afterwards. I usually play the tape through and note the times of anything I don't want on the DVD and then press the pause key at those times when recording.
