VHS to DVD???

I just got my wedding tapes but I thought they were gonna be on DVD format but instead we got 3 VHS tapes. I'm not complaining but with those people that are wanting a copy I would just rather go the DVD route. Otherwise if anyone can do this for me I would be extremely grateful to have one copy done for my wife and I. Otherwise, I was hoping to get a DVD burner sometime in the future. Thanks for the help!

Are you asking if one of us has the capability to copy a VHS to DVD?

I would prefer to wait and do it myself if anyone knows how but I wouldn't turn down an offer from someone if they can do it for me now for a nominal fee.

The other question, since it's on 3 tapes, are they 3 2 hour tapes, equaling 6 hours? Might be a bit of a tight fit getting it all on a 4.7 DVD at full DVD quality, unless it's done at something like SVCD quality.

Here is what I did. I got a $50 Avermedia TV Tuner card. Hooked up my VCR to the TV Tuner card. Recorded the VHS to MPG files. Then converted the MPG files to SVCD format.

Only thing is, I can only store about 35 minutes to a single CD-R. Since I only have a CD Burner and not a DVD burner, I burned all of the files to CD's. If you have a DVD burner that is not a problem.

BTW, check out this site for tons of help:

Well in VCD format (not SVCD. VCD is about equal to VHS in clarity), you can probably get the whole thing on one CD. VCD runs approximately 10 megabytes per minute of audio/video ... a 700 megabyte CD will hold about 65 - 70 minutes of audio/video. And most newer DVD players will play VCD's with no problem.

That might be a route you could go. That VCDHelp website has a ton of info on the different formats.

You could easily get all the video on one dvd, the vhs arent going to be dvd quality anyway, so why record at that rate.
