    Default Advice on converting Video to DVD

    Hi All,

    I'm sure this topic has been raised before so appoligies for the repetition but I can't seems to find anything relevant.

    To save my marriage I need to convert my Video collections into DVDs. At present the videos contents are not organize so I thought I kill 2 birds with one stone by doing the conversion and organizing the DVD into appropriate chapters (the video are full of my kids' cartoons).

    This is where the problem start. What is the best (and cheapest) approach? I was informed that I really need DVD-R as that has the best editing facility. Then someone suggested getting a DVD recorder with a Hard Disk. Then someone suggested putting the Video on my PC...

    What I don't want to do is to sit through 3 hours of viewing the Video content serially. What I want is to store the content onto a suitable format which lets me edit at my leisure.

    Hope you can help.
