VHS to DVD

I have a friend who played in a rock group in the 60s and 70s.

He has a VHS video of one of the gigs which he has asked me to transfer to DVD.

Using Pinnacle Studio 9.4 it captures all OK. It doesn't need to be edited but when I click on Make Movie nothing happens. Everything locks up.

Hitting Ctrl, Alt, Del brings up Pinnacle not responding.

Have also tried Sonic MyDVD and Ulead MovieFactory 4 and Nero with the same results.

Cannot get this to burn to DVD, although it is saved on my Hard Disk and will play from there no problem.

Plug the VHS into a stand alone DVD recorder, its the best and quickest way to do it.

Try burning the movie to an image file first to the hard drive then closing all apps, start up nero express, right click on task manager and give it a 'above normal' priority, choose the 'burn image' option and choose a slow (2x-4x) burn speed.

Just in case, and apologies if this is teaching you to suck eggs, to burn to an image file in the likes of nero vision, choose the image recorder as the output.

A few more good suggestions there. I will give them all a try.

Thank you.

Thanks all sorted. Transferred it using my Liteon DVD recorder.

Absolutely awful. The hall that was hired had no acoustics, the microphones didn't work half the time and the MC didn't have a clue what the gig was all about.

But it was about 30 odd years ago.

Ticked.

30yrs ago that counted as a good night out:-}
