I bought a PX A200U and a very powerful quad core computer with Vista to convert all my Hi8 movies to digital. The computer just freezes up so it doesn't work at all. I then installed on an older XP machine and again nothing but freeze up.
I previously had another Plextor gizmo but my computer wasn't powerful enough to use it well. When I got the new Blackbird computer I found that the old Plextor wasn't compatable with Vista.
This is all driving me nuts. How will I ever get my videos converted and what can I do about the PX A200U? The older unit I sold on ebay.
Maybe I should ask my next question here as well. Could someone please tell me the best way to convert Hi8 to digital so I can put all my many years of tape onto DVD? I think I need a better converter but what should I buy?
thanks very much. This is my first post in this forum so I hope it wasn't too stupid
