Took a little while to get all the connections correct - not QUITE as simple as I thought from other reviews, but I have it now. I was surprised and very disappointed to find this was not a product I could use on more than one computer in my house. I considered it a "gadget" I was buying, and was not real happy to find that because of the SOFTWARE license, you can only use it on one computer. I think that should have been more clear in the description.
This is the second program/system I have had to transfer VHS to DVD and this is so easy it's fun.
The other system had it's own VCR and was a nightmare to operate.
I read the reviews and still made the decision to purchase this item. I didn't want to purchase another VHS/DVD recorder, my mistake. The first about Roxio Easy VHS to DVD is it's not EASY. I hooked up as told, it said no video signal, I hooked to another VHS player it worked. I had to change the aspect on my computer which I read about online focus group with the same problem. Roxio web page was unhelpful at best or just plain useless. You'll have a hard time getting it to accept your DVDs as well. Finally, it recorded, but got hung up on the finishing which took hours. I'm going to try again to see if I can finish it or rerecord it. Don't buy this, its as waste of your time and money, but don't take my word for it check it out online for yourself, just type in Roxio Easy VHS to DVD 3 plus, and judge for yourself.
Good concept for transfering VHS tapes, however the product does not come with much info for people that are not technically trained. After much determination and help from my computer guy, it does work. Don't know if the word is easy in getting started.
This is truly a wonderful product. It is so easy to dub your VHS tapes to DVD!
Found this software very easy to use and it does exactly what I bought it for. So great to get the old VHS tapes onto DVD's.
This device is a great idea and works fine. There is a 3-6 second delay when playing the VHS on your screen with the Vidio and Audio but when you play back after recording, it looks great. Advise to take breaks with mutiple taped moments, Also to fastward and see what is ahead so you dont spend a hour watching something expecting it to end in a minute.
good product and works well
It was difficult to learn how to use this system, though in looking around the internet I see there are books available for this purpose. You can transfer movies to your computer but some of those recordings would need another translation software to make them play on a DVD player which is what I wanted to do. That software would be about another fifty dollars. After I bought the system for $83 dollars from Walmart on line I was looking for translation software and found Roxio Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus at another well known online site for $38.50, then I found it on my Walmart shelves for $60, that is when I found out Walmart online does not carry the same competitive price guarantee that store sales have.
Followed all directions but could not achieve audio and video recording.
This didn't work. I'm running Windows 7 on a new computer. Roxio customer support is about non existent.
I am not happy with this product because I cannot get it to work right for me. I have tried changing AV connectors to the VHS player. I do not have the capability to connect it directly to the VCR on the camera that was used to make the VHSC tapes so the VCR with the adapter for the C tapes is all I can use for now. I am hoping to try it directly to the Camera but basically gave up since I don't want to invest in more materials to get it to work. I actually get a picture but it's not clear and jumps around with chopping sound on the recording. I thought about contacting Roxio Customer service but got frustrated with the whole process and gave up for now. I will eventually get back to it but for now it's a sore spot with me.
I expected more out of this.. mentions to have a computer but it does not connect well..
i would not buy again
This was very easy to install and is simple to use. It does everything that we wanted and more. The label maker is fun to use, too.
This was easy to install and set-up to vcr. I do wish there was a way to transfer quicker to computer, but I love the fact that I can transfer straight to my computer than burn to a DVD in the future. I just recently started using this and am yet to discover or use other capabilties that this product has to offer. I have VHS tapes that are over 20 years old and they transfered without any issues.
For no reason at all the software will just stop working in the middle of recording, and don't try to contact customer care. I won't say any more but this item was extreemly disapointing and so was the company! Wal-Mart was great and did all they could do to help and they delivered ahead of schedule.
I bought this program to copy my VHS movies to DVD. I have a desk PC that is only 2 years old and a new laptop that is less than a year old. This software will not work on either one. It says it will work on Windows 7 but it will not. I did get my money back from Walmart but I would not buy another Roxio product. If you want to copy VHS tapes to DVD purchase a Honestech product.
don't think for 1 second your going to transfer a store bougt VHS video to a personal DVD [ aka bootleg ] because it will not copy it. You'll be stuck with it and like it. Especially the lose translation from Chinese to English.
This software is easy to use but does have some hiccups. The software will let you dump and edit to a hard drive with ease. however; it is limited in the ability to "Fit To" media. The overall quality of the recording depends on the quality of the vhs.
use a computer with it. So at this point not sure if I'll keep it or not. Just depends on what my son thinks.
