I'm wanting to convert old home video shot on VHS to DVD. I don't know a lot about this procedure, but it seems that it should be easy if I have the right cable and software. Does anyone know if the Roxio easy VHS to DVD (blue box) is a good all-purpose product for accomplishing this? I also want to put old cassette tapes, LPs and mini DVDs onto a standard DVD. Will this product do all of that and if not, what reasonably inexpensive product might?

 

Thanks for your help.

Buy Creator 2009 with the capture device. You can find it at Sam's or Cosco. You can find it pretty cheap if you shop around -- usually around $50-$60. It is probably a little more than you need for now buy you will make use of it in the future. Buy once rather than go cheap and buy again.

 

If you buy it directly from Roxio, you have a 30 day money back warranty if it doesn't work right for you or simply if you don't like it.

 

A lot depends on your computer. Make sure it exceeds the minimum specs for this program. Please put your computer spec in your signature by going to My Controls at the top of this page and then edit signature. You computer specs will show up in this post and all future posts. If you post you computer specs, we can offer suggestions. Key ingredient - a good stand alone video card.

Thanks for posting your computer specs in your signature. It should work. If you are using XP, update DirectX 9 (or 10 if Vista). Also update the drivers for your video card either at the Dell or here. or more specifically here. check with the product supported tab (for Vista) Follow the installation instructions.

 

A warning. It is still better to capture audio directly to your audio card rather than to the USB device. There are quite a few that can't get it to work properly for audio only.

 

Also you should be able to put the mini DVD in your computer CD reader and it should read it. If it does, just copy the files to your hard drive. The disc probably needs to be finalized before you do that.

Thanks for getting back so quickly.

How do I capture audio directly to the card? Is there a special cable?

Thanks for your help.

Standard audio cable from the cassette player to a Y stereo connection on your sound card/chip (line in). For LP's you need to come out of an amplifier or get a small preamp from your turntable to the computer using same cables.

 

This is from Digitize LP and Cassette application.

I'll give it a try and let you know how it works out. May take a few days to gather the stuff.

 

Thanks again,
