VHS to DVD transfer, recomended product.

by officerdibble / January 17, 2006 8:45 AM PST

I have been informed by a business source that DVD+rw and DVD-rw and DVD+r and DVD-R machines are in the process of being changed, that is that the laser that burn's the disc is going to be a different system to what it is now. I have loads of VHS tapes that I want to burn onto DVD. I live in the United Kingdom but I do not want to buy a DVDR machine if like I have been informed the system is gong to be changed to a better one. What I want to know is, is this information correct as I am unable to have it verified over here and wondered if anyone had heard the news in the USA. Iwould sooner wait for the new system if that is true, and it is always that the USA gets to know these things before anyone else. All I am told in England is to wait and see. Anyone any idea please.

Your source is over-optimistic

While "Blu-ray" is coming later this year, it'll be YEARS before they're popular, and VHS isn't really going away soon.

VHS is fading fast. This is happening now...

We sent some tapes out and 1/2 the people didn't have the player.

VHS players are vanishing fast in the wild.
