New to this forum. My question is about capturing video from VCR. Got 12 year old precious footage that i wanted on my computer for editing and then placing on dvd. Got myself Dazzle to convert it into my PC, works fine.
Problem is there's a huge reduction in quality when i stick in the burnt dvd into my standalone dvd player. Even when i set the dvd to burn at highest possible quality, I get this blurry/pixilated/choppy version of the clear footage i put into the computer. I'm using Nero to burn.
The PC is brand new, a Dell Dimension 5000 with over 1 gig of ram and 80 gigs of hard drive and a cpu pentium 4. I don't have a firewire outlet so my only option with old tapes or my new mini dv cam is to hook up the dazzle cable. Is that the issue?
If installing a firewire port resolves this, does anyone know what those things cost you to buy? Any ideas as to how to stop this problem would be really appreciated!
