Hey guys im currently running a lil personal project of putting my old VHS's to DVD. Im just wondering about the quality of the disks im using. Im using
TDK Standard DVD+R Sony Standard DVD+R With something called AccuCORE (Have no idear what that is)
Bare in mind i also burn at a lower speed for a more stable burn. My old Philips drive does 4x max on a DVD+R and me other does 16x max but i norm kick down to 12x or 8x for like i said a more stable burn. But wich of thoes two is the better quality disk for what im doing ?
Got another thing , i just try ed putting my star wars episode 1 the phantom menace to dvd from VHS and its the secand time ive recorded it to my harddrive and both times the timing has been out between the audio and video. Ive done several other movies just fine like the 6th day and total recall this morning came out fine. any idears ? Im using my TV card software wich is PCTV Vistion v2.75
I check the audio on the file on the HD b4 burning to disk. (so i don waste disks) The burning and convertion program is Nero and i have no problem with it. its the original file(s) that's created by the recording. Like i said its only the odd ones here and their. Cos ive sucessfully done total recall , the 6th day , ST generations and the family man with no problems. The only ones ive had problems with is star trek insurection wich i recorded off sky movies a long time ago and star wars ep 1 the phantom menace. SW Ep 1 i tryed twice and both times had same prob with the audio.
Just tryed insurrection for the 2nd time and the audio is properly like 2 seconds out from the video :(
You can't go wrong with TDK discs. They're about the only ones offering class 1 discs at affordable prices. I've never had a burn fail with them.
cool :D thx ... any ideas on the audio prob with my recordings ??
If the sound displacement is on the file before you burn it to a disk, then it sounds like an issue with the program you used to convert/rip the file.
Thats true it could b the program im using but why with only certain VHS's and not all of them. Its weird i mean like i said b4 ive done a few already that have turned out ok. But why these VHS's ... any other programs that spring to mind that i could use? im using PCTV Vision or other wise also known as PCTV Rave. ITs what came with the TV card im using.
I don't really know of any VHS ripping programs. Try re-ripping the defective ones again; perhaps you just had a botched rip.
Failing that, try playing the actual VHS. If it has errors, then there's really nothing to be done.
The VHS's play fine its just the file when i play them back. Ive try ed each 1 twice and same problem :(
