Vhs To Dvd: I'm Flummoxed!

Question

I have decided, at long last, to transfer all our old VHS tapes to DVDs.

I have looked at the Roxio Creator 2010 options, but am still unsure how or if I can use the program to do that.

 

I hope someone will confirm what is the situation, and if transfer between media is possible, suppy me with an idiot's guide.

 

Looking forward to your help. :)

You own C2010 pro or regular?

 

You can use the Roxio USB Capture Device with C2010 but do you own the device?

Seems my misfortune to have regular version, as no mention of Pro anywhere. I do not fancy shelling out too much for a one off type job, so seems I must look elsewhere.

I don't have a clue what that means!

 

Maybe you want it that way?

I think it means when you asked him which version he had, he decided [wrongly] that he had the wrong version. He didn't want to pay money for a different version so he got annoyed and is going somewhere else to try and do the job for free.

 

At least that's what he seems to be saying. He might clarify it for us?

It means that I do not want to pay out £40 for something that I shall use on no more than a dozen VHS tapes.

 

Indeed, I read cdanteek's reply as saying I had the wrong version.

 

Brendon's reply seems to say that I have the right version. @ Brendon Is that what you are indeed saying? If it is, how then do I use the version I have?

As Cdanteek said, "You can use the Roxio USB Capture Device with C2010 but do you own the device?"

 

Your software will interface with the device, but you need to have the USB Video Capture device Look HERE to actually capture the video from your VHS machine.

 

The device is a small computer in a USB housing, and it contains both a video and an audio processor on LSI chips.

You plug it into a USB port with a good solid current source [usually a USB port on the rear of the motherboard rather than one connected by flying leads to the front of your machine] and then you connect your VHS player to the device. It's controlled by your Creator 2010 software, which also takes care of saving the video and burning it to disc.

 

Regards,

Brendon

In UK the price is £40 in a well known store against $49.99. :(

The price I see in the UK is 36 plus the extras like shipping. Roxio is having a sale this week if you are interested. When you go to buy (you can cancel) type in "Roxio40OFF" code. I just tried it and it worked for me. Let uis know if you do that and if you get the discount.

 

Week of April 15, 2012.

The quote I gave was to buy in store, ro which I can travel free with my seniors' bus-pass. Anyhow the code (without " ") comes up as invalid.

 

Edit: It will not work with creator 2010
