This question might be out of scope for this forum but hopefully, someone can help.
I’ve reached a point where I’m comfortable creating DVDs using various tools like Nero and RipIt4Me. My big project now is copying all my home movies from mini-dv and Hi-8 to DVD.
The mini-dv works very well because I can hook up my camcorder directly to my PC. However, since Hi-8 is analog, I am using Pinnacle’s MovieBox to convert the tape to an avi file. Unfortunately, I am encountering ‘jumps’ or scrambled frames in various sections of numerous tapes. I tried using several camcorders to play back the tape but the jumps persists (even when I don;t use the MovieBox) so I suspect the tape is the problem.
Does anyone know or have an idea how to make the tape play clean or how to fix the jump or scramble on the avi file without cutting the affected frames out of the avi file?
Any information is appreciated.
