Hey guys and girls.

Ive got a ton load of videos here that im wanting to backup onto DVD.

What is the best method really to back these up? Get a standalone player or something like a scart to usb cable and input the videos onto my pc and then burn to a dvd?

Anyone here who has done that before and can s hed some light?

All methods of transfer are very time consuming ,as there done in realtime .If you can get them onto PC ,they can be edited ,clipped etc and using transitions , titles, background music etc ,can be made to look very good and then put onto DVD.But this will take time. I think the quickest and easiest way is to buy a HDD/DVD recorder.Using a scart cable you can copy them onto the hard drive ,this footage can be edited and transfered to the DVD disk .Of course , you can run as many copies off as you like once on the HD. I use a Liteon model for this and it makes quite a good job,it also features a firewire port for a quick connection to a digital camera.

Thanks guys for the advice so far. Its the initial cost of the standalone recorder which gets me. :(

I looked at that kworld one and on scan its a good deal, but its the carriage which is high. Unless i can get it to £20 before vat then i get free delivery. lol.

Can you add a scart adaptor onto the one i listed as it does not show one in the picture?

I think so yeah. But were you asking if you can just join them, or if it would help bring it over £20?

Sorry to hijack a thread, :oops: but if you copy a VHS to DVD using this method does it create any kind of chapters on the DVD or do you have to fast forward / rewind scan the DVD to find a bit you want? Thx. :thumbsup:

you can input your own pre-determined chapters or just auto insert say every 5 mins.

depends what OP means by "tons of tapes". might just be simpler / as cheap to gradually buy the original dvds as most are very cheap these days and vhs -> dvd transfer wont make the quality any better.

not to mention copyright issues with copying vhs to dvd (unless of course thay are the precious home movie variety ;-):-D).
