Hello all. I am new here. I am sorry if this was posted somewhere, but I could not find it....And i looked in the guides and followed the links. I printed some guides for reference as well. I have some 1-6 yr old VHS-C tapes that I am recording to DVD-R via a JVC tape and dvd-R combo recorder. I put them on dvd-r to save the videos from further deterioration. I then have to take the dvd-r and copy it to my movie storage HD. Problem: 1.My vhs-c tapes are scattered and some not labeled, so I just started copying all of them in no order to my dvd-r within the JVC combo. Will I be able to sort through them for some type of chronological order via video editing software? 2. When I copy the dvd-r to hd, it is saved as a TS (?) file and I cannot play the file w/out the disc. What do I need to get around this? Am I missing some type of file conversion step? I have Nero 6 and windows xp movie maker and windvd 5 or 6. (i am at work and can't remember.) I am just trying to make a few movie dvd's with my copied dvd's in some sort of timeline for family to watch. Any advice is appreciated!!
