Dubbing...

About three years ago, I bought a low-end, off brand VCR/DVD recorder combo unit at Wal-Mart for $88. Rarely used it all this time for anything much, since most movies I had on VHS, I've re-purchased on DVD already. Matter of fact, I had to drag out the booklet that came with it just now, to refresh myself about the settings. I put a blank DVD-R in the DVD side, and a VHS of a family get-together from 1992 in the VHS side.

The tape has Uncle Bill featured rather promitely throughout the happenings, the reason I'm attempting to transfer it to DVD. If the dubbing works, I should have a decent master DVD to copy for any relatives that might want a copy. The PC has two DVD drives, so copying would be rather easy. I just wish I could make a dub from the ORIGINAL tape recorded from the camcorder, instead of the VHS copy, because it would look a lot better, but I no longer have a 8mm format machine (ex sold it for some reason she never gave a reason for back in 1995), and you can't find them in stores anymore.

Back in 2006, I uploaded a couple of excerpts from the tape to YouTube...
