My mother would like to save some old vhs movies to dvd, is there any way I can do it? Thank you.
If you have a DVD recorder it's simple enough to connect the VHS player to it.
The problem is that some commercial movie tapes have Macrovision protection - Disney comes to mind - and it requires a so called 'Stabilizer' between the tape player and the recorder.
Another would be one of those USB capture devices - don't know if they honour Macrovision.
Thank you for the information. So I can't copy a vhs to the computer and burn it to dvd?
Yes you can, but it requires a capture device - either an internal card in the PC or a USB device that can accept and process the video/audio from the tape player.
Try asking at the Videohelp site for a recommended device.
go with usb capture card. did that for a customer a few years back from mini vhs tapes of home movies to the computer to be burnt onto dvd's.
Which sub capture card? How was the quality?
it was a usb type card with the red, white & yellow connectors that are attached to the vcr via cables. video quality seemed to be alright but it was home video recorded not professional.
