What Cables Do I Need To Buy?

Question

Hi All, bought the so called "EASY Video to DVD" I have managed to get the disc to download on to my laptop, next stage connection to the video player I find I am supposed to have a couple of "User cables", why the hell that wasn't made knowledge before I set it all up I will never know!!

 

PLEASE tell me what I have to purchase to get this #$^@ thing working. I naively assumed everything came in the pack, if not it should have been made clearer . Sorry to moan but I don't like to let technology beat me, as an old wrinkly I usually do fairly well but I am well and truly stuck now. Any help would really be appreciated, Jane

Naively

 

There are many different cables that can be used, depending on the output jacks on your "video player".

 

If you still have problems with that, tell us the make and model # of your player and we can then tell you which one you need.

 

Some only use Scart cables, or Composite (Yellow (Video) and Red and White (audio) or S-video.

Many thanks, I shall take a photo of my video player and go to an electrical shop with the kit and see if they can work out what i need. It makes sense now why the kit didn't have the cables in if they are not universal. thanks again for your help, i will be back if I have no joy with this.

A friend has just brought me a scart , still packaged, do you think that will work before I open the packaging?

 

I don't think you need the scart judging from the Information on your player. There are many varieties of them and he may have the wrong one. Don't open the package Do you still have the manual for that player? What does it say about the video and audio output jacks?

I looked at the manual and there was nothing about using the composite jacks. I don't know if they would work. That unit may be a universal one wired for you neck of the woods OR for elsewhere. Is the scart connector exactly like the one used in the manual? It looks like the right scart cable came with the unit; do you still have it?

I have looked at the manual, and it shows you have both Scart and Composite outputs, and it appears you can use either of these.

 

Also, the player is both DVD and VHS, and I assume you are using it to play old VHS tapes. It appears that no matter which connector you use, both outputs should work. Before you try connecting your player to the Roxio unit try it out on your TV to make sure you are getting a signal.
