Video tape transferred to DVD or to my Mac?

Post by InTheBlue » Fri, 18 Feb 2011 10:00 am

I know someone here will be able to answer this.....

I have a bunch of video film of my children that I want to transfer to disc or hard drive.

I have looked this up on the interweb and every time that I go to a shop that says they can do it on the web, they can't when you actually go there. (There is a particular chain of local stores that are always guilty of this. :mad: ).

Does anyone know where I can get this done in Singapore please?

Cheers

I personally have a old JVC deck that has firewire out that i can put my VHS and DVC tapes into for converting into my Mac.

it's pretty old now, not sure if they still make it or not.

JVC SR-VS30

I also recently bought my Mom a Sony DVDirect MC10. its really easy to use and was much cheeper than my JVC.

You might have more luck finding the Sony in SG.

SP - thanks for that but I was looking for the lazy way out by giving this to someone else to sort out for me.

There must be somewhere in Sing that offers this service.

Video tape transferred to DVD

I found 2-3 places in Sim Lim Square that will transfer the tapes to DVD but they were very expensive (and I had about 50 tapes to convert).
The cost was prohibitive. So, I did it myself. Took a long time (several weeks) but it was done right.
You may consider the same. Good luck.

So how can you do this without a video player?

I spent $200 in Sm Lim in the end but got all the tapes done onto DVD 3 times over so presents for Grandparents are done this year!
