I`ve a number of VHS recordings that I`d like to transfer to CD, and quite frankly I don`t know where to start. I phoned a mate and he said I need a Graphics card with Video-in and/or a video capture lead.
The graphics card I`ve got is NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 Model 64/Model 64 Pro (M/S Corp) [Display Adaptor]
Is it any good for the purpose? If not, can you point me in the right direction. A basic one will do provided it can do the transfers. Cash is at a premium right now, but I`m willing to wait. As for the Video capture lead, I`ve no idea what he`s talking about, can you help here too please?
Grateful for any help.

I copy mine to my DVD recorder, I have 100's of video films that I have bought over the years. And when I fancy watching one of the videos I connect it to my DVD recorder and record the movie to DVD whilst I watch it. I assume that's what you are after doing too. I'd have thought you needed a TV card of sorts to do it on the PC, but I stand to be corrected on that point as I’m not sure.

You might find this useful. It tells you what specs you need.
I find it work very well.

I don`t want to use DVD yet, but you mentioned a TV card. Any more info?

I`ll look at this tomorrow, there`s a little of the translation lost on me at the moment, but it looks good.

Thank you both.

I didn't realize that they where so cheap, I might just get one myself.

Sorry but it looks as if the sale of this has ended. Dont know why. I think there are similar products out there, will have a search for you.

This one is similar to mine,see if you think it's what your after. Good price at £25.

Thank you both for the help. The TV capture card may be just what I need. I`ll tick as resolved, but if any problems later I`ll come back. Thanks again.
