Hi, I'm a novice DV/Firewire user who is trying to transfer DV
recordings from DV cassettes using a ADS Tech Pyro 1394
PCMCIA card and a Startech Firewire/DV end cable to the
harddrive, using Microsoft Windows software Movie Maker
I'm limiting the captures to 3 video choices, DV-AVI,
"high quality video (ntsc)" and "high quality video (large)".
The source video was filmed straight to DV cassettes at
LP or SP mode on a JVC DV camcorder (model #GR-D770U)
I'm using VSO Convert X to DVD to make the DVD files
(vob) from the avi/wma files that Microsoft Windows Movie
Maker made on a laptop with plenty of
HD space and with no other tasks/software running.
I've been playing the VOB files (dvd) from the harddrive that
VSO made using VLC Media Player, to test the dvd before
I burn a dvd. This is where the problem is. The DV-AVI
file on the menu plays ok, but I can't make 212 mb files from
1 min of video. The "high quality video (ntsc)" video is not
syncing with the voices, and none of the other ones are.
I just checked the source files, and they're good. No sync problem.
I play the "high quality video (ntsc)" file from it's original file,
a .WMA file, and it's good, no sync problem.
When the test works, I'll use Verbatim discs.
(Ultra DMA 2 is enabled)
Obviously, the sync problem is introduced from VSO.
What's going on? Is this a problem with a specific version
of VSO? Is there a setting I missed or need to change?
The PCMCIA card came with Video Studio 9.
Have you had this problem? What software do you use - or
would you use?
Maybe one of you can recommend a better capture software
or dvd making software than what I'm using.
