My sister buys a USB capture device (EasyCAP) which also comes with Ulead. Loads the driver, loads Ulead, connects the old video8 camcorder and trys to capture.
After a serious amount of effort which I won't waffle on about the process is;
1. open ulead
2. select capture device
3. select options and change audio to usb device
4. capture as AVI
Which of course creates a rather big file.
So the next step is to burn it to a DVD. With Ulead software for the life of me I can't see how to actually make it burn to a dvd disk. Then I try movie maker, which is what Win7 prompts me for when I insert a blank disk. It burns the file no problem to the disk, but it has the following problems;
1. the video image is overlaid with todays data and 'play back' or something
2. there is no audio
What a heap of effort to do what an end user wants;
1. capture video
2. burn a DVD
even better if its one step 'push play and walk away'

Ulead ... what is applications name
I think (not used it in a few years) in video studio 8/9 there's a last tab up top called share which gives you options as share type ... pc playback, cd / dvd.
Thanks for the software suggestions. I've also received a suggestion for this software http://download.cnet.com/Ulead-Burn-Now/3000-2646_4-10337414.html
The Ulead software doesn't say what version it is.... seriously, most applications have it under help or in a option called 'about'
Did a test run of recording a 90 minute tape. The end result was a 248Gb file that doesn't work. So it would seem that it recorded for about 6 hours and then crashed without finalising the file. So next test is to set a kitchen timer to 90min and manually stop capture when it beeps at me.Have a nice Day
Go back to the Ulead program that came with the EasyCap. Change the capture format (the drop-down) from AVI to DVD. Capture again. You then have a mpeg file somewhat smaller than your avi. That still needs to be authored before you can burn it.
No obvious reason tho why avstodvd should not convert that avi and author the files.
AFAIK Ulead Burn Now is just that. It burns your files to a disk. It does no authouring to dvd.
Genuine easycap install disc package should list on the back the ulead version ... mines v10se
