Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players

1 Answer

I am capturing video from a VCR to a PC using Windows XP (SP3), and using DVD Maker hardware. I am doing this using Windows Movie Maker, but have also tried Nero 7 and the result is the same.Both sound and picture are captured, but the picture has persistent flickering and flashing of what appear to be other frames, all in the bottom 25% of the screen. Can you suggest how I might get rid of this, as the VHS tape plays perfectly in a VCR? Many thanks, Roy Youdale

I talked to someone who is a professional video editor, and he suggested the first thing to try was to change the USB port to which the DVD Maker was connected. This wasn't something which would ever have occurred to me, but hey presto it worked! Aparently USB ports are sufficiently delicate in terms of video transfer that they will work with normal devices, but some may not work well for video. I hope this helps someone else.

Can the sansui vcr/dvd combo record vcr tapes to a dvd?


No, the DVD section only plays DVDs, to record VCR tapes to DVD you need a ripping device that digitalize audio and video (convert step) and then transfer to DVD specifications this data to disk (record step). The easiest way to do this is using a USB video capture adapter connected to your PC with a DVD recorder drive installed, the software to do this commonly comes as a bonus in the setup disk of the adapter.

Can you record onto DVD from VHS with a Sony SLV-D950G1


Yes, I have the same player. However, I have it hooked to my computer to do so. I use Windows Media Center to do so. Just hook to it and play normally, the VCR while you are recording with the computer. Then, with Windows movie maker, I burn whatever it is to DVD. There are other software programs out there that can help if you do not have Windows Media Center or Movie Maker, such as Nero or Roxio. There are some freebie programs if you understand computers a bit more, from either CNet or Majorgeeks, two websites I get freebie software programs from, as well as learn from on what is good and the benefits/how to use. Hope this helps.

What Operating System do you have?
What you need is a DVD authoring program. You have a plethora of programs for Linux (K3b, DVDAuthor...) and for Windows, it depends on the Version (XP: Windows Movie Maker, Vista: Windows DVD Maker).
Just open the concerned program, create a new project, add your movie and burn your DVD!

Dvd recording using a pc


The product you need is called the Pinaccle Dazzle - it is basically a red/white/yellow composite to USB connector - it also comes with software for capturing your videos in DVD format on your computer (or you can record directly to a DVD disc inserted in yuor computer). I purchased mine at Best Buy, but it is available in a lot of places. It works great, and I have been busily converting those old VHS's to my PC, and then from PC to DVD.

Good luck!

We have been unable to get the machine to dubb our tapes to a DVD. We get a message that is the universal signal for "do not". (Circle with a line throught it.)


It sounds like the format on your tape is not one that your system can dub directly onto a DVD. I run my video tapes through Pinnacle Studio 9 or 10, process, and then burn onto DVD. Windows XP has a movie maker program to do this, and some people use Nero successfully.

Playing dvd-r on machine


This DVD player does play DVD-R

I burn lots of DVD on my computer from my video camera.

The very best quality DVD for burning from your computer is Taiyo Yuden. Other brands seem to work fine for me also. You should only buy a small quantity of DVD's until you decide which brand you like best. Then it is a good idea to buy 50 or more at a time. There is not much price difference in brands. I get 50 at a time for about $35.

You need a decent software to capture and edit the video, and to create a DVD.

I use Adobe Encore and Roxio Easy Media Creator 10.

For the easiest to use software I recommend Roxio. It makes a nice DVD and it captures video as well.

If your video camera has a firewire (IEEE) port for digital video you can capture the video with Windows movie maker, Roxio or any software that came with your camera.

You must also have a firewire port on your computer. If it doesn't have one, it is easy to install a PCI card with one.

If your camera doesn't have a firewire port, you may need to use the analog video (composite or S-video) , but you will need a video capture device. You would also need to input the audio seperately on your line input of your audio card.

I can help you further if you need it, but it would be very helpful to know how you plan on capturing the video and what type of devices you are using.

let me know if you need more help, and if this information was helpful a good rating is a great way you could say thanks for the help.

PAL to NTSC conversion


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.
