Transferring Betamax Home Videos

Question

I have hours and hours of home movies made during the 80s on a Sony Betacam video camera. My question is will the Roxio USB Capture device along with using Roxio 2009 Creator Ultimate work to transfer these videos to an avi file format?

 

I still have a Beta VCR that works well (had it recently repaired) and can play the video tapes in it. The VCR does have a video output (yellow) and a left and right audio output (red and white..or is that white and red?). Anyway, these outputs seem to be compatible with the adapter I purchased along with the software.

 

I have not tested it yet since I haven't retrieved the tapes from storage but wanted an answer anyway. Thanks.

 

I can hear the yells and screams and laughter out there over being the only person on the planet that actually preferred Beta over VHS because of quality!! LOL...

I preferred Beta over VHS, so no screams and laughter from me and I am certain we are not alone :rolleyes: Just because something is popular does not mean its quality :)
