Are there any geeks in the house? I'm attempting to transfer VHS to my hard drive for further transfer to dvd. I have the converter, the software, the vcr and everything seems to be transferring fine EXCEPT the audio. I can hear it but I can also hear all this crackling sound. Any idea what that is or how I can correct it? Any help would be appreciated.

I'm transferring the Rolling Stones HBO show (2003) from VHS to HD to DVD
I'm using VirtualDub to capture. No problems yet, no dropped frames.
check your PM's.

Personally, I think a standalone DVR would do a better job faster.

What I came in to post.

Insert tape, insert disc, press a button.

Can add chapters, all the bells & whistles, before finalizing the disc.

It too is my understanding that doing this w/ a computer is much more time consuming, and that a stand-alone DVR is MUCH faster.

What brand & model stand-alone DVR are you using? I've been very interested in getting one for the same purpose, but am not sure what to buy. I definitely want to be able to divide things into chapters, etc. Thanks!!!

Just a standard Panasonic DVD recorder w/ VCR built in. Nothing fancy.

It's real time recording. A 2 hour video takes 2 hours to transfer. Not sure how it could be any faster when dealing with tape?

Thanks JCB. I meant faster by the fact that the computer doesn't have to convert ther files, and then you have to put them on dvd. for my mini dvd camcorder, the conversion from mini disk to a computer readable file takes FOREVER, so it would cut step out completely, even though yes, you still have to record it to dvr in real time.

Thanks!
