Nero Or Roxio

Question

I am a newbie to this forum and looking for information and direction.

 

I have about 125 VHS tapes of family events going back to the early 80's. I desire to transfer them to DVD and edit them while doing so.

 

In reading some of the posts on this forum, I sense a significant problem with the VHS to DVD software being sold by Roxio. I have both ECDC v5 and Nero v6. Over time I relied mainly on the NERO product for its sophistication and thoroughness (IMHO).

 

So here I am ready to move these tapes to DVD and are looking for the best software to do so.

 

I have a Dell 3.2ghz, 2gb ram, Plextor DVD-+/DL 18x, EVGA Gforce 7600GT and 2@100gb drives and USB 2.0 ports.

 

What do I need to achieve my goals? Should I evolve to the Nero 9 or go Creator 9? what about VHS to DVD? Or some combination of them?

 

What type of results can I expect for the tapes which were recorded at the 6hr mode? or the 2hr mode for that matter?

 

I invite all responses!

 

thanks in advance for your help!

I would go with Creator 2009 current product, with a version like Ultimate or SE Soecial Edition, that includes the USB Capture Device. C2009 and EVHS2DVD are not compatible on the same system.

 

Should I evolve to the Nero 9

 

Probably not a appropriate question asked on a Roxio sponsored board.

 

What type of results can I expect for the tapes which were recorded at the 6hr mode? or the 2hr mode for that matter?

 

Not any better than they look watching them on tape now.. how do the 6hr ones look?

You'll also want to buy an extra external hard drive to store the iso images you will create of these vhs tapes. If i read you post correctly, you have a total of 200 gb on your pc and you'll be converting 125 vhs tapes to dvds. That will likely require lots of storage space and you don't want to use a bunch of your existing 200 gb drives with these video files.

Thanks to everyone for your help.

 

Your right about storing the videos on an external drive fed by USB.

 

Am to understand, that Creator is ALL that I would require to begin transferring the video files to the HD? Let also understand that this transfer would be done in "real time". So a 2hr tape will take 2hrs to move to the drive and so on?

 

What wiring would be needed to connect this up? My VHS player has a S-video output & stereo outputs.

Creator 2009 Ultimate or SE Special Edition, that includes the USB Capture Device.

 

It connects with S-video or component cables (white, red, audio, yellow, video.

 

Yes, real time recording 2hr = 2hr.

Just about the storage - I can't think of anything worse than waiting for a large hard drive to fill up via a USB port. Get a decent sized hard drive as recommended, but install it internally. If necessary, pop one of your little 100 GB drives into an external caddy if you have nowhere else to put it.
