This converter works great for capturing video to your PC. It allows you to save files to Divx format and WMV. And the editing software is'nt bad. It's WinDVD, which is fine. I just can't seem to get the DVD's that I burn to play in my regular DVD player. They play fine on my computer's dvd drive though. It's not the media I'm using either, as I've used it with Nero. All said, this is really a good deal if you have the needed hardware and the right DVD player.

I am a novice at media projects but this converter has been great in helping me convert my VHS tapes to DVD. My only issue is with the WinDVD Software where it doesn't accurately set the capacity line for burning DVD's, so that time-consuming attepmts to burn a movie to DVD sometimes fail. Set the limit to just below 4GB and you'll have no problem. I have had no problem playing my homemade DVD's on my regular DVD player, but I think that is a function of my burner, not the converter or software.
