Thanks for the reply.
I copied 8mm tapes to a dvd recorder then inserted that dvd in my pc and copied it to my desk top.
I then drug that icon to my roxio drag to disk icon with a blank disk in my drive. It recorded and I followed the info to eject slowly to finalize so it would be playable on all dvd players.
It does contain a VIDEO_TS folder containing a number of ifo, bup and vob files?
I am using sony DVD-R disks. I'm getting unRecognizable media , or can not read messages.
