Newbie question - Best products for VHS to DVD transfer
on May 15, 2005 at 4:53:15 pm

I have a bunch of home videos (VHS, 8mm, and 8mm Digital) that I would like to transfer to DVD. I have an Alienware P4 2.8 with 1GB Ram and Windows XP Pro. I am looking at the GoVideo VR5940 DVD Recorder +VCR to do the initial capture and then I would transfer the .VOB file to my computer for editing. What I am looking for are recommendations for the following:
1) Tape transfer hardware options (i.e how I get the video onto the computer like the VR5940)
2) Video file editing and DVD burning software
3) DVD burner (yep my computer doesn't have a DVD Burner just a DVD reader).
4) Anything else that might be needed to do this the easiest

I am not wanting to become a professional quality videographer but would like to produce some reasonably decent DVDs (primarily to preserve the VHS tape content)

Thanks very much for any suggestions.
Rick Anderson
