I am currently backing up my VHS movie collection on to DVD so that the quality doesn't degrade any further. I capture the video to HD through a USB capture device in real-time and it saves it as MPEG2. I then use NeroVision Express to cut out the previews and end credits and burn it using NVE. My question is this: if my capture device already captured the video in MPEG2 and at the correct framerate(29.97), why does NVE write it so slow(a little under 1x)? The only thing it should be doing is authoring and burning the video right? Is there any way to do this faster? I have a whole collection(70+) to back up and taking that long on each tape is a hassle that I would like to avoid.
