There are two basic methods to capture VHS to DVD:
1. with a stand-alone DVD recorder/player;
2. Capture, edit, export, and author to DVD with a computer and video-editing software.
For either method, you'll need a solid VHS Player for playback and output. If your VCR is of the wood-paneled variety, consider an upgrade to a VCR that supports composite outputs (yellow, red, and white connectors), or better yet, S-Video (one multi-pinned connector).
Method 1 – VHS to DVD, Quick and Simple The fastest, easiest way to transfer VHS to DVD is with a standalone DVD recorder, likeSony's DVDirect MC5 Multi-Function DVD Recorder. With this option, you don't need a computer. Just hook up your VCR deck directly to the DVD recorder, pop in a VHS tape and press record on the DVD recorder. A built-in LCD monitor allows you to preview the videos as they record. Direct VHS-to-DVD recording, however, doesn't allow you to edit the video. If you want to edit your video before burning to DVD, read on.
Method 2 – Flexible Video-Editing Option
Have Aunt Suzy and Uncle Gary's exhaustive slide shows made you see ZZZZ's behind your drooping eyelids?
Edit out the ZZZZ's and flubs, and focus instead on the highlights of your vacation. Although video editing is more labor intensive and requires a little more technical know-how, its flexible options allow you to engage your audience with dynamic transitions, pyrotechnic special effects, and a killer soundtrack to keep the snoozers alert and engaged.
A computer loaded with basic non-linear editing software, DVD authoring software, and a DVD burner is essential. Entry-level editing software such as Apple iMovie, Adobe Premiere Elements, or Pinnacle Studio will do just fine. We'll use iMovie and iDVD to demonstrate, but the same concepts can be used on PC-based video editing and DVD-authoring programs.

Can I transfer video tapes onto CD's


A lot depends on what type of video tape you use and where do you want to play the DVDs (CDs are for audio recording only). If tape is compact VHS then you can buy a simple DVD Recorder VHS VCR combo player and transfer across easily provided you have the compact VHS cassette module.

For other type of video camera tapes you will have to try other methods like connect camera with tape to a DVD recorder and directly burn the DVDs. You can buy attachments and software for PC but I have found these very cumbersome to work with.

Toshiba dvr19dtkb2 dvd wont play on computer after transfering form video casette


The proper codec may not be loaded on your computer. Find the format your DVD recorder uses, Google for a codec for that format. Find a player that supports the code, download and install it onto your computer and then try the DVD.

We have a Panasonic blu ray disc home theatre sound system Model no SC-BT735 all speakers are wired up and working through the dvd player we then have a techwood 32884 HD digital tv, but we do not know...


Many HT systems are designed to play back sound from the discs, and send video to the TV, not to receive an audio input from the TV and play it back. Without more detail, all I can suggest is that you refer to the manual for the HT system and see what it says in this respect

My Magnavox Digital Disc Recorder & Video Cassette Recorder will not play DVD-RW discs. How can I solve this problem or get a replacement unit.


It claims to play -RWs finalized in DVD-VIDEO format, not VR. If a disc is recorded/finalized on a different recorder, not all players can play it. This is the price we pay for the convenience of the digital system.

To the best of my knowledge 8mm VTR's have not been available for some time now. On the other hand there are plenty of Hi8 cameras and players available after market. eBay is a great source. Keep in mind that Hi8 cameras and decks will also play standard 8mm video tapes.
There are also many video tape transfer services that will transfer your 8mm tapes to DVD or other formats of your choice. Just Google "videotape transfer service"

Converting NTSC home Video tapes to Pal DVD or NTSC DVD


You need either an NTSC DVD recorder (keep in mind that the US has 110 voltage, while Australia does not), or a computer card that supports NTSC. Some video capture cards support both NTSC and PAL (often switchable). Choose good quality, and pay attention to video/sound sync - some bad quality cards loose sync. Once the tapes are transferred to DVD - and keep it native NTSC all the way, they can be played on virtually any PAL DVD player/TV combo. With an NTSC source, it's best NOT to convert to PAL, while with a PAL source in the US, you'd need to convert to NTSC or only show the DVD on a computer (where NTSC/PAL doesn't matter).

You may have to buy a new player! because its not compatable ( you need one that plays DVD+ DVD- and dvd RW!) and the players that play these formats are no more then a regular dvd player (seen them for as low as $30.00 at wall mart!

Using remote to play video DVD


You need to bypass your A/V tuner for your video connections (if possible). Plug your video directly into the TV and audio into the tuner. This will also give you a cleaner signal/picture as it does not have to processed by your tuner BEFORE it goes to your tv. Think of it as cutting out the middle man. Your tuner is best left for powering your speaker and not controlling your video despite all of the available connections in the back of it.

I would also get rid of your VHS and cassette players as they are dead technology. Clean up your system and remove the clutter. This will lessen your chance of getting interference. Good luck!!
