Creator 2009 SE vs VHS to DVD

Question

I am new to this forum, though not new to Roxio. I go back to ECDC and all its faults. I finally uninstalled it and moved over to NERO which continues to rule the house since 1994, albeit long in the tooth.

 

I purchased Creator 2009 SE and never got around installing it, but I intend to do so shortly to xfer my VHS family pix to DVD. Though before I do that, please share with me the operating differences between it and the newer software they're promoting " VHS to DVD".

In reading a few postings, posters advise against installing both sets of software due to conflicts. Understood, however which is more proficient at accomplishing its task????

 

I have a traditional Nvidea card Gforce 7600GT card installed.

 

Will I require any specialized card to transfer the video from my player to the hard drive?

 

Am I to assume the speed of the recording process is in real time (Glacial speed)? Most of my family videos are at least 2hrs long.

 

Any recommendations to insure a simple process with adequate visual results?

 

Thanks in advance for your help

To convert VHS to digital you need some sort of hardware "capture" device. VHS2DVD comes with such a device. I believe the C2009 SE version sold only thru Sams and a copuple of other stores has such a device also. C2009 (and the newest version 2010) do much more then what VHStoDVD which is basically just video oriented. VHS2DVd is a subset of the C2009 or C2010 programs. The data transfer from VHS is in real time, this is true of all video capture software.

When you write of a "capture Device" are you talking about that "dongle" with a USB plug on one side and a combination of SVHS & Analog video plus a female RCA female audio jacks? I have one which came with the Creator 2009 package. I forgot where I purchased it.

 

So Am I to assume the VHS to DVD software represents just a small portion of the complete Creator 2009 bundle? I gather that is why you cannot have both products occupying the same machine as they will conflict?

 

I also am considering moving over to NERO"S version of their latest software as I have always ended up with quality results when using the NERO 6 version.

You have all that is required, if you have problems get back on here.

 

PS

 

Just in case, Creator 2009 is not compatible with Win 7.
