Customer Reviews of Roxio Easy VHS to DVD PC
Bogus Rebate program10/29/2012
Does not work in Win 7 environment. The rebate is bogus. the vendor does not pay.
I Have W71/27/2012
I have W7 64bit. I use Pinnacle Instant DVD Recorder. Never tried it on XP but it works fine on Vista & W7. It is true though. Garbage in garbage out no matter what you use. If you remaster you still have interlacing problems.
Product does a very nice job8/4/2011
Finally!!! I got those 20+ year old VHS tapes onto DVD. (The tape inside some of the old cassettes had become detached with age and needed to be repaired. A few more years and, who knows, maybe I would have lost my whole collection.) Anyway, this Roxio product made the conversion to DVD a cinch!!
Quick and easy way to get DVDs5/24/2011
I didn't want to become a video producer. I wanted to capture the analog 8mm cassettes before the camcorder died. I also wanted to put some old VHS tapes on to DVD. I am running Windows XP. Also during video transfer, I did not run any other programs. If you start with a poor source, you will get a poor DVD.
It installed fine on Windows Xp (2 separate computers). It worked when recording vhs tapes but playback was useless. It would speed up and slow down and skip and play terribly. It was a waste of money and it should be pulled off the market. It is a "too good to be true" product.
Got error while installing on Windows 7 machine (error #000D), and so far (5 days) Roxio support has not even bothered to contact me, and they have no phone number...
Would not load12/28/2010
Very disappointed with product. Would not load with Windows 7. Customer service sent a link that was supposed to correct problem and a suggestion that I check discussion groups that may have had same problem. Link did not help. Kept getting message that a "certificate was missing." After a week of going though discussion groups for "same" problem did finally get product to load. Transferred one VHS tape to disc. When disc played back from a DVD player movie would freeze at one spot and not go any further.
I'm happy with this item.. does as promised.. BUT... make sure you check your settings before clicking on the "record" button. I wasted two blank DVDs, but both my fault. If you set "record" for 2 hours, make sure you don't leave the settings on "highest" quality... that only allows one hour of recording. Also, when "finishing" the recording, be patient.. you may think it's done because the "finishing" message may have disappeared, but wait until a "recording completed" message appears and the DVD pops out. They should have more detailed instructions, but it does as promised once you work it out.
Poor Transfer Quality10/18/2010
The product installed ok and the software is good, but the DVD it made was pixalized and cut in/out. I was able to copy an audio LP album to MP3 ok.
Hard to Use8/22/2010
Unit supplies little instruction and although straight transfers are good. Adding titles and chapters to discs for custom dvd's is difficult. Be prepared to wait quite a few dvd's before you get the hang of it
WIll not install on windows 75/17/2010
After many times trying to install it on to my Dell running Windows 7 32-bit I just gave up. I installed all the updates via the Roxio website to help the problem but it still would not install.
This product is very easy to use. I just plugged one end into my camcorder and the other into the USB slot on my computer. You can customize your recordings, create chapters, etc. The program records in real time so it does take a while to covert. However, you can walk away and come back a few hours later. If you don't make it back by the time the recording is done, the program will keep running until disc space is full, then it just waits for you to finish it. I used DVD+R with 8.5 GB memory. This is perfect for 1 tape of 2 hours of video 8 recordings. I know there are more features to the program but I have not used those yet. It is great to convert our old movies to DVD's. I'm so glad I bought it!!
I have effortlessly moved all our old VHS tapes to our computer with this software. I've also used the "sound card capture" feature to grab audio snippets off the web. Both features work flawlessly and are very user-friendly. Have not tried the phonograph capture feature.
poor transfer quality10/27/2009
Roxio makes some terrific products of witch I have several. That being said the Roxio Easy VHS to DVD is the worst product I have purchased from them. Instructions are not detailed enough, Loading to computer was irritating (took several loads to work), and quality of transfer was unacceptable. Returned product shortly after receiving, Roxio customer service wasn’t much help. His best suggestion was if I didn’t like it, return it.
Not MAC Compatible6/2/2009
I called and talked to two(2) people before I purchased this item. I was assured by BOTH that it was MAC compatible. With that assurance, I purchased it. When it arrived I learned that it was NOT Mac compatible. Thinking that it might require a newer Mac with Intel chips, I gave it to a friend, hoping that it would work on his Mac. It did not.
Does the job.5/22/2009
Out of the box installation of the software took persistance and several restarts of the computer. Once the install was complete the product was relatively easy to use. I would recommend this product to others as a good way to convert VHS, Hi8 and Hi6 tapes to DVDs or to files that you could capture to your harddrive.
This is an easy product to use, the only thing I don't like is the book doesn't go into much detail on the different options. There are many things the software can do but the book doesn't talk about it. I only figured them out from trial and error and wasted a lot of DVD's in the process. It was well worth it once I figured out that I could connected it to my DVR and create DVD's from there. I bought this product and it was worth every penny. My friends and family have all purchased this product as well and love it.
Not bad, pretty good actually4/26/2009
I have a great many cassettes and old records I have wanted to hear but they are too much trouble in those old formats. Roxio has a good name in the industry and the price was right so I tried it. Guess what? It works, at least for the cassette tapes. I haven't tried it on my records but I expect it will work fine. I made one effort at copying a VHS tape and the tape was too old to copy decently (it was a store bought movie). I'll probably not bother with Hollywood type movies because they are readily available on dvd I will however use it to copy my home videos and again I expect it will work great. The product has a couple draw backs but I really don't think there is any way around it and that is that the media you want to copy has to run in real time so 90 minutes of audio tape takes 90 to be digitized. The entire process takes a lot longer. It has automatic track recognition but it doesn't really work that well but it is relatively easy to correct where the individual tracts should be. There are some cool tools in the software that help clean up the sound by removing clicks and pops and an equalizer to adjust the sound and it seems to work quite well. It took a few hours of messing with it to understand how it works but I rather enjoyed it while listening to my old tunes. At this price it's a pretty good deal...Have fun...I am.
Works great for audio tape to digital conversion. Haven't tried the Video conversions yet.
This product works as advertised. I hooked up my VCR to my computer with the cables provided and began capturing the VHS movies to the PC. This takes quite a bit of storage so be sure your PC has the capacity or buy an external hard disk
I had several VHS tapes of old family get togethers inclding scenes of my deceased mother and wanted desperately to convert these to DVDs. This worked perfectly. In no time I was able to build a nice looking menu for my DVD and then capture all 3 VHS tapes. Now when the DVD is inserted a menu screen appears which is a nice picture of my Mom. "This is dedicated to the one I love" is playing in the background. There are four menu buttons. Three of these when clicked will play one of the formerly VHS tapes and the other button plays a slide show which also has music playing in the background. Further I was able to use the software to trim out unwanted scenes (like when the camcorder was put down on a table recording a wall for 10 minutes). The video is not DVD quality because of course the sources are very old vhs tapes, but the good news is that now they are digital and the quality will stop degrading. Bottom line: if you have VHS tapes that you value, this is an absolute must have!

This Product does what it says.
Good way to clear up tapes1/16/2009
I've hesitated about getting a full blown roxio suite due to the space and pc requirements. I really need to clear up my tapes so I got the vhs to dvd unit. It comes with a video adapter which hooks up tape players, camcorders, lp and cassette players to the pc. The sound and video were imported very easily. For music it also comes with auto id since tapes don't have the digital song data. If you need to concentrate on tape conversion this pack makes sense.
