What will the kit copy? What won't it copy? You'll be able to copy all your own homemade videos and most things recorded from TV (although legally speaking you shouldn't keep those programmes longer than 30 days). Each shop bought video we tried converted fine (Ivor The Engine, The Clangers and the Bond movie Goldeneye)
Anything else you have, on what looks like a regular blank tape, should be transferable.

Technical information : The software supports PAL (UK/Europe/Australia/New Zealand) & NTSC (USA/Canada) devices. Both S-Video and Composite video inputs are supported by both hardware and software (we supply a composite lead). Even and odd fields are combined into single frames that can be captured at full frame rates for the applicable standard (VHS Upscaling). The maximum supported frame size is: PAL (UK & Europe) 720 x 576 (DVD quality) @ 25fps / NTSC (USA) 720 x 480 @ 30fps. Captures video & audio over USB to a standard MPEG, MPEG-2, MPEG-4 or H.264(requires a fast 2.8GHz+ dual or quad core PC for live H.264 capture, slow systems can convert post-capture) or uncompressed AVI file. Our USB adapter performs Time Base Correction - which means even if your 1980s wedding video has gone all wobbly & wavy our adapter will still capture what remains, providing it plays back on a TV okay.

In addition to the USB adapter, we send a two metre yellow/red/white phono lead PLUS a Scart adapter - this means you can connect all Scart equipped VHS & Super VHS VCRs and older VHS-C, Hi8, Video8, Digital8 & Mini-DV camcorders. Even older pre-Scart VHS and Betamax players can be attached (see Attaching Cables PDF Guide and just ask if you need the free BNC adapter).

You can also connect more modern equipment, such as Freeview, satellite and cable TV hard drive recorders and camcorders with DVD or memory cards - basically, anything that can be connected to a TV by Scart or Yellow, Red & White leads can be recorded onto your PC. DVDs you produce will play back in any DVD player, providing you use DVD-R or DVD+R media and not rewritables.

How easy is it to use? Just plug the Scart adapter into the back of your VHS video player, attach the yellow, red & white lead, connect the USB capture device, install software from the CD, finally plug the USB adapter into your PC.
Here's a PDF Guide showing you how to connect almost any VCR or camcorder correctly when using our kit.

We've tested the kit with a wide variety of laptop & desktop PCs running Windows 8, 7, Vista and XP. If your PC is less than six years old, it will be powerful enough to run our kit. Please read the pre-purchase FAQ page if you're still running XP and aren't quite sure if your PC will be powerful enough.

We give you all the hardware and software you need to connect your VCR or camcorder to your PC. The included software makes the capturing, editing & burning of your project simple. Our kit includes three pages of easy-to-follow instructions for Windows 8, 7, Vista & XP, along with a video tutorial on the CD that shows you exactly what to do. If you need further help we're only a phone call or email away.

We buy direct from the USB device manufacturers & only supply the most recent versions. We know our products inside and out & only sell direct. You can buy similar looking products from a 'Newspaper Reader Offer' or a PC megastore, but they'll often supply older USB hardware, with poor support and only half the cables you actually need. Our kit is complete, actually works & comes with real support.
