to start with the proper connection.
Can anyone out there in cyberland tell me HOW I can get video (from VHS Tape) onto my hard drive to transfer to DVD... I have heaps of tapes, home made's and purchased, I have a copy DVD program so have no problems transferring DVD to DVD but I am stuffed to know what connections are needed to 'feed' the pictures from a VCR onto the Hard Drive of my PC. My VCR has AV outlets which can be Scart, SVHS, RCA or standard coax. Is there a software program needed to compress the files once transferred as I would imagine a 2 hour movie on Video would take up a lot of space on any hard drive, not to mention the slow process of transfer in real time from tape to hard drive. I also have some double sided 12inch Laser Discs that I wish to transfer to DVD, again, I have the original "Caligula" staring Malcolm McDowel that I wish to transfer which is on two discs, that totals 4 sides of copy to transfer to one DVD! Any advise would be appreciated as I would like smooth joints in the finished product, a possible problem when 3 pauses are required to turn over discs and change Disc A to B etc....
I hope to hear back from anyone with knowledge. Please contact direct if possible to Ballabra@aol.com
