My father has a large collection of video tapes that he wants to transfer to digital format. He's brilliant, but getting up in age and I'm finding that he is having an increasingly harder time with technology as years pass.
He's tried using a stand alone VCR/DVDR unit, but I cannot get the unit to record to DVD in spite of meticulously following the instructions and using approved media. The entire process is complex to begin with, so even if this device worked (it is several years old) it is not a good choice due to the complexity.
I thought the ION VCR-USB player is an ingenious idea, but reviews say the software is atrocious.
Are there proven capture devices (analogue to digital) for PC that also have reliable, simple to use software?
