Transferring home movies to DVD

by crystal / December 11, 2003 11:17 PM PST

When I record my home movies from my Hi8 tapes to VHS I can record the data code info, so I know what date and time the videos were recorded. I recently bought a Sony Vaio with DVD recorder and I've been transferring the Hi8 tapes to DVD. The problem is that when I do this I can't seem to get the dates, times, etc. to record on the DVD. Does anyone know if there is a setting that I need to change or something I can do to let me record the data to dvd? I am using Click to DVD vers. 1.0. Thanks.

You may be nonplused to find out that such info isn't part of the DVD recording toolset.

What else is missing? Let's note SUBTITLES and CAPTIONING. It would have been a grand place to place this information.

We may have to wait for low-cost softwares to do these feats (or features), but at least you'll know that it's just not part of your stock DVD creation software.

crystal,

I do not know this application... so some questions...

1. Does application do a straight copy? Meaning Open application -> start recording to DVD -> turn on VCR.

2. Does application allow recording to hard drive and adding Titles, subtitles and menus?

On question #1 try Windows Move Maker in XP. Record your home movie to this application and add titles subtitles and sound. Then use One Click DVD to burn DVD if allowed

On question #2 -> self answered

Again I do not either of these applications so I
may not be going in the correct direction.

Hope this helps

Bill
