Is this the latest version? What is the version? On Roxio site, advertising "latest release" - naturally there is an upgrade cost. Feb 7, 2014
As far as I know its the latest version. I have had no difficulties using it, though there may be some upgrades available that I haven't yet explored. (And probably won't since the device already does everything I want it to.) Hope this helps.
I have dozens of VHS films--not home movies--that I'd like to copy onto DVDs. Has anybody tried this product with films? Does it work? Feb 17, 2014
I haven't tried it, but it would probably work; very slowly. This set up is best suited for use as a home movie to computer converter; then editing and then write it to a dvd. If you want to convert your old movie collection then a $150 vhs to dvd recorder would work faster and produce a better quality copy.
how do you plug your vcr into computer ? Mar 4, 2014
This device come with three RCA jacks- white, yellow, and red. You need to attach these connectors to your VCR via a separately purchased set of wires.. The wire is NOT included for this. Then the device itself plugs into a USB port.
Do you need to buy anything else to go with this or does it just hook right up into the VCR and Computer? 3 days ago
You need the standard cords that you use to connect the VCR to the TV. Other than that, the package contains the software you need and it works pretty good. It starts easy enough - turns itself off when the movie ends - and allows you to trim the dead time off the front and end of the movie before translating it. Good stuff.
Hello, once the software convert the movie from vhs to dvd ,is on my hard drive permaently or can it be deleted? I want to save space on my hard drive Dec 4, 2013
Yes. I record to the hd and them move to other devices but u believe there's an option to go direct to DVD. Regardless each movie is an individual file which you can delete. Also recommend maybe you burn two DVDs before you delete if you go through the time to record it.
Is it possible to input ~6hrs of a VHS tape, and then edit/split into separate files during the editing process? How cumbersome is that, if anyone has tried it? Oct 29, 2013
Yes, there is a way to split a video of a very long length into separate parts. After you let the program record the video that you're playing, it will allow you do some editing on it before you decide to transfer/copy the video to your computer or hard drive. It's pretty simple, but depending on how long each part is and how much data they take, it can take some time. Hope this helps!
Do you have to download your vhs content on to your computer, or does it burn directly onto a DVD? Jan 9, 2014
You can do both, directly to DVD or the computer. If you record your VHS directly to DVD you can not edit the recording. If you do your recording to the computer you can edit the movie (Enhancing the color, bright & contrast, etc). That means that your movie wil looks a lot better.
