Hello, This is my first post and right up front I will tell you I feel like this is the first day of class for me. I have searched the forums for answers but am still confused. I have a dvd recorder/player(Pioneer 320) attached to my television set. I have used it to copy some old VHS tapes to dvd. I am able to view the dvd's on my TV but am unable to play them on my PC. It appears that I need some additional software in order to play the dvd's. I would appreciate suggestions for inexpensive (or freeware), SIMPLE player software. I have been looking at software to edit my dvd's. Would this type of software also play the dvd's or do I need a stand alone software? One other question. Could you recommend a link for a BEGINNERS guide for transferring VHS to DVD, editing the content then burning back to DVD? I have looked for such a guide on this site but have had no luck. It is possible it is here but due to my lack of knowledge the termanology may be keeping me from finding it. Any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated.
