Recently, I have been tried to capture tapes without very much success. It freezes during capturing.
I have tried capturing from a DVD player and satellite TV and that worked. The tapes are in good condition ranging from 10-12 years old. I have tried on three VCRs, a Sharp, an Emerson, and a Panasonic PV-S7670.
I was using a Pinnacle 500 USB, but that did not meet my needs so I got the ADS Tech Pyro AV Link, which is the one that I am using to convert the tapes to digital currently.
Unfortuantely, since it was not capturing them right I tried using the Pinnacle 500 USB. I would stick with this except for three reasons.
- It sometimes drops frames.
- It does not capture DV AVIs in Windows XP Movie Maker.
- It is a USB capture device so it is not compatible with my Adobe Premiere Elements 3.0 workflow.
Pleae help me. Thank you in advance for you advice.
