Hello, I'm sure that a good deal of this question has been answered before, but many of the solutions I found did not address the specifics of my situation. What I am trying to do is to transfer VHS tapes that I own to DVDs that will play in normal players. I own all the tapes that I am copying, and am only going to use them for private use. My setup: - Powerful PC with large HD (assume no restrictions) - ATI Radeon 9700 PRO All-In-Wonder video card - Lite-On 8x DVD-/+ RW drive - Pinnacle Studio 8 (came with card) - VideoStudio (came with card, haven't used) - Nero Software that came with the Lite-On drive (NeroVision Express 2, etc...) - DVD Decrypter and DVD Shrink - Creative Audigy 2 Soundblaster Sound card - Windows 2000 operating system Currently, I capture the video (and Audio) through my ATI card in Pinnacle Studio, then burn directly to a disk. I tried to capture with NeroVision Express 2, but when I got sound, it had a bad echo that I didn't know how to fix. Using the above process, transfering 1 VHS tape takes about 5 hours or so. Can anyone suggest how I could do this process better (shorter time, better quality, fewer manual steps so I could just set it up to run at night, etc...)? Thank you for your help.
