1st post! Doing some closet cleaning a while back, I found an old beta tape of Bear Bryants last football game (liberty bowl. Alabama vs Illinois)(tape is 24yrs old). Checking it out on an old beta machine that a friend gave me, to my suprise, the video was still pretty good. The rewind don't work so I'm having to mechanically rewind it (spade bit and cordless drill).
I want to convert this to dvd in studio 10 but I'm afraid 10 won't handle the length ~2hrs without crashing. I have moviebox plus usb and I was wondering if I would have less problems if I hooked the moviebox to the pc with firewire instead of usb (if it can be done).
If this configuration don't work, what other alternative do I have?
If I could ever get it captured, I could use shrink to get it on to 1 dvd, or try dl or 2 dvds. Any suggestions on how to save this collectors item?
