First of all let me make this clear--- I have read some of the posts of self-proclaimed NEWBIES and they sound like geniuses to me. So, with that in mind, please forgive my lack of more sophisticated terminology.----- I have a whole bunch of VHS tapes,, some are VERY old and contain home made movies that are very precious to me. I would like to transfer these to VIDEO DISCS. This is what I have in terms of Hardware and software. Again, if I am giving too much info—or not enough--please forgive and consider my ignorance with respect to this discipline. My Machine has a Pentium R4 CPU --- 1.99Ghz/256mb. Ram My OS is Windows XP I have a SONY Double Layer DVD/CD Rewritable drive. With plenty of DVD+RW discs—And a bunch of CD+/--- etc….. I have NERO 6 installed as well as Decrypter and Shrink. And I even have Xcopy. I also have an old TOSHIBA VCR and a couple of TVs as well as a fancy RCA DVD Player--- it even has its own 6" screen for viewing. What I need is someone who can tell me, in simple terms, if this is enough to transfer my PRECIOUS tapes to DISCS. If the answer is NO,,, then I would be grateful to know what additional Hardware/Software I need. If the answer is YES--- then --- instructions on how to hook this up and what to do would make me as happy as a dog with two bones.
