Specs: Windows Vista, 1.733 GHz / 1013 MB
I was wondering if anyone could give me any advice on USB software I can use to transfer VHS tapes onto my PC so I can later burn to DVD? I've checked out ConvertX and DVD XPress DX2 but both are for Windows XP only and lower. I have a Vista, so is there any good ones I can use for this job?

I'm thinking you need a capture device PCI card. I know Pinnacle has a break out box but there may be others too.
I have pinnacle suite deluxe and it came with the break out box. HTH

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers

Are you saying that you already have a USB device?

If so there are many live linux cd/dvd's that may work with it.

If not then might also look at the haupage (spelling) versions of TV/ AV input usb devices. About $60 and up.

Problems seem to be more of the version that each copies at. Some use Divx and mpeg1,2 and so on to include "codecs" that you may need to buy or download.

Some DVD recorders can copy in a format that your computer can read with a free reader (VLC video lan client)
Not much more than the usb device and you can record tv shows.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

I used Dazzle Video Creator to do all mine - very easy to set up & the Pinnacle software you get with it does the editing job without being too complicated.
