I recently purchased easy VHS to DVD for Mac, though I don’t want to burn to disc, just want to edit & save video to external hard drives for my children. I can’t find a tutorial more recent than 2013 and that looks nothing like what I am seeing on my screen. I have the device hooked up, using s-video cable for video & rca (red & white) for audio. I have made a few trials but audio drops out completely on occasion. And I’m having trouble finding where video is stored, even after keying in for the specific folders on the external drive. Brand new 8 TB WD My Book that is down to 7410 gb so I know the video is there SOMEWHERE. AND, if I walk away & don’t keep the computer active, it locks up & I lose everything I’ve put in that particular file. Where do I go for help? I have about a thousand hours of vhs, s-vhs, 8 mm, high-8, digital-8 & digital video tapes that I need to convert. Will have to do in batches, of course, but I can’t afford to pay to have it done. Is there a decent, recent tutorial anywhere? Thanks, Lo Sitton
Hello, I just purchased Roxio's Easy VHS to DVD for MAC with the hopes of transferring homemade VHS tapes into DVDs. So far, I have successfully copied the VHS tape onto my Macbook Pro computer and have the files saved on my computer as .mov files. Unfortunately, I am having difficulties burning these .mov files onto DVDs. My questions are as follows: 1) The "Easy VHS to DVD for MAC" seems a little deceiving, in that after browsing the forums a bit, it doesn't seem as if the software comes with direct DVD burning capability. Is it necessary to purchase another DVD burning program (such as Toast?) or is there a way to do this for free? (I had thought Toast was included in my original purchase, but I guess not…) 2) I plan on burning onto standard DVD + R (Memorex and/or Sony) DVDs with the standard 4.7 GB & 120 min. The .mov files that I now have saved from the original VHS tapes onto my Macbook Pro computer are rather large in size (2 hours of film, yet ~10 GB after using Roxio's product). Why so large? Will this be a problem when it comes to fitting the film on the standard sized DVD? Thank you in advance for any and all help - I really appreciate it!
I am slightly frustrated. After SEVERAL tries to copy 31 minutes of a VHS family home movie to convert to DVD, I get an error message OSStatus Error-49. I have wasted several hours trying. I have over 30 gigs of available space on my macbook pro. I have already converted several other shorter VHS segments to DVD on my macbook pro. I do not recall ever seeing a limit to the file size. What am I dong wrong?
