Greetings

I have just ordered one of these

I recently had about 30 old VHS converted to DVD. It cost a bit but I am not complaining as it must be reasonably time consuming to do.

Having said that I still have a few VHS which I would like to convert so I went hunting and came across this

Roxio VHS to DVD converter

I reckon there would be quite a few Formites that would have old VHS sitting around who might also be interested - I note it can also do audio and LP's to CD

A DVD/VCR Combo will do the same thing.

Can it also do:

Correct video quality, add transitions, and add Hollywood-style menus and chapters. Then, share with family and friends on DVD. Or, easily transfer your videos to an iPod or a PSP, for on-the-go viewing.

and

Transfer your collection of LPs and tapes to CDs or to portable players. Label the songs automatically with title, artist and genre information

all for only AU$99 plus freight compared to RRP $349 for the LG unit

It does cost a little more but if ease of use is attractive this item is excellent.

Some DVD discs are encrypted to prevent copying--DVD TO DVD.
However if you really want to copy the DVD it is possible to play it whilst recording onto VHS --then transfer from VHS to DVD.
Naturally a drop in quality but --if you really want that DVD???
However I never do it-- may be illegal???

Takes hours to do an LP as you have to do each track seperately,

Otherwise you cant play them individually.

Then have to run them through something like Cooledit Pro to take out the clicks and pops. Took about 3 hrs an LP.

Did some of the 400 that I have and gave up and bought the CD's of them.

Cheers

Actually the unit we are talking about does LP's too. It copies onto CD

" Transfer LPs and audio tapes to CDs

No wasnt using that as it was 10 years ago and in those days Roxio wasnt noted for being the thing to use for what we were doing in the copying world.

Do you remember Roxio Easy Cd Cremater Sorry Creator LOL

The original description of DVD was Digital Versatile Disc

as it is used not only for video but has gradually become to be called Digital Video Disc.

The link provided gives a description which includes the ability to copy LP's. Thats why I mentioned it.

Cheers

G'day KiwiAngler.

A couple of years back I plugged my brothers VHS (My carked it many years ago) into my DVD hardrive recorder/player.

Quality was just as good as the old VHS.

Then burnt them to disk and deleted the fiel from the Harddrive.

No messing around, and worked very well.

My LED light is still working after sitting on it that night around the camp fire at Well 24 I think.

Regards,
Brett.....

I tried to use one of those convertors on my computer a while back to copy some VHS to the computer... didn't work for me!

The picture came across and was just as good as the VHS but for me the unit would not pick up on the sound for some reason?????

The VHS movies I was trying to copy were not that important so i gave up on it..

Really cannot understand the problems noted in the postings, I transferred no less than 15 VHS tapes to DVD and they were all equal to the excellent quality of the VHS and some of them were taped 20 years ago
