I am thinking of buying the Diamond Multimedia TV Wonder HD 650 PCI-express TV Turner to transfer my old video tape to DVD. I saw the specification said: NTSC, does it mean I can use with my video player (PAL) system only.
I'm not sure I understand your problem. What are you using that is PAL? If your VHS tapes are in PAL then the TV Wonder card, which can only handle NTSC format, will not produce a picture and you will not be able to transfer your movies. If they are in NTSC (U.S. or ***) then you should be able to transfer them just fine if you are using a computer from the same region. If you are using a computer from a different region (e.g. EUR) then this card is not your best solution.

The version of the ZV427MG9 sold in the U.S. only supports NTSC video files. Thus it won't play a PAL VHS tape.
If you find a similar version sold in Europe, that would probably play PAL videos. However, if you used the tape to DVD dubbing feature, the DVD would still have the PAL format. I'm not even sure that a video capture device with video conversion software on a computer would do what you want to do.
I wish that I had better news for you.
(The video would also matter. If you are trying to convert a commercial video (ex: a movie) to DVD, the dubbing feature doesn't work due to copy protection.)
This depends on your operating system and video display hardware, but a lot of the time, updating to the latest video driver for the card will solve the problem. The other possibility is that you are set to the wrong video source (for example, the S-Video instead of the composite). The third possibility is that you are set to be "PAL" capture for an NTSC source or vice versa. If you are in the US, set NTSC. If anywhere else, select PAL.

VHS-C and S VHS-C are two different animals. Super VHS-C will have much better video resolution than standard VHS and uses better videotape. A standard VCR will not play the Super format. You need a S VHS VCR. You would need not only a S VHS VCR but also a S VHS-C adapter. Yes, Not even the adapter is the same as a standard VHS-C adapter cassette.
You can send out your few S VHS-C tapes to a video conversion service. That might be the least expensive way to get them on DVD. Otherwise you could look on E-Bay.com for either a compatible camcorder (S VHS-C) or the S VHS VCR and the S VHS-C adapter.
http://vhs-to-dvd.com is one video conversion service that should be able to get your tapes on DVD for you. You could also look locally for a video service that does conversions to DVD.
You already have Movies on TDK E-HG 120 VHS tapes; All you want is to Transform the media on the tapes into another record Media or on DVD.
The following process would make possible the project
1. A DVD Recorder device would transform the movies already on one media to another media.
Note: The recorder that would be acquired should have a feed area for the VHS tapes on one hand, to be played, while on the other hand, a DVD disk area from which disk medium would be recorded.
The devices required to make the process achievable includes
1. The DVD Recorder or Player alsoo known with multi perpose functionality for signal convertion capability
2. The DVD recordable disks on which to record a movies onto.
The process of recording would require selection features determinable on the recorder device else would produce movies with undesireable features
For example; VHS movies are appear in decodeable formats integral when displayed on VHS players. The caution is to select a signal conversion format suitable for movies that have to transform between recordable media.
1. A DVD disk medium has formats as design specification and on which requires consideration when attempting to transfer multi media or motion pictures.
Type of formats of decodes
Whenever the option is available, select NTSA or PAL for appropiate code transformation
Your DVD RECORDER DEVICE SHOULD HAVE THE OPTION TO RECORD CONSIDERING MOVIES ACROSS MEDIUM TYPES
consult professional advise before acquiring an devices and mediums
If any consultation is required, refer to user guides or manuals of the devices in question.
Consult a technical expert when the need requires it.
This is not a converting unit, it will play the format of the tape inside. To convert the signal you need one of the following:
1) A converting VHS player; they are fairly expensive.
2) A separate video converter (hardware); they run for about $200-$500; just put this between your VCR and the TV.
3) Capture the PAL on your computer using a software like Movie Maker via a Firewire cable. Than convert it to NTSC on your machine using software like Nero... do a search on Google for converting software. Or just watch it on our computer in PAL format, most computers do that... For this step I use a separate camcoder that has a passthrough feature. The VCR connects to it and the camcorder connects to the computer via Firewire.
4) send the PAL tape to a specialized shop for conversion. They normally charge $30-$40 for a regular 2h VHS tape.
You have to buy first a VHS player that can play NTSC, might not be available locally in Ireland so you have to probably buy online (US).
The DVD recorder is fairly comnon nowadays and all of them are capable of recording and playing NTSC and PAL. You can then connect the AV out of VHS player to the AV In of the recorder.
Or you can use a VHS-DVD combi. You can google in UK, here is an example:
Toshiba RD-XV45, according to the specs, it can play NTSC on the VHS and you can record to DVD on any format that yoou want
