This thread is created for the discussion and QA of technological problems we face in our everyday lives. I'll start by posing a valid question of my own.

I found my old VHS collection of the Ahmed Deedat lectures (including the one against Jimmy Swaggart) - I found the full collection and am anxious to see them again. Does anyone know how I can get the video onto DVD>???? I was thinking of putting them up on youtube too, in a playlist dedicated to the late Sheikh, Ahmed Deedat (May Allah be pleased with him).

Any help would be appreciated. I know there are plenty of recommendation on the web, but I'm looking for a recommendation from a member with experience in this issue, if possible.

I don't mind if the VHS feed gets burnt directly to DVD or if it gets sent to my HDD on my laptop in a recognised format. Either will be of help.

Salaams, the easiest way is to install a TV card on your PC (or buy one of those USB versions if you're using a laptop). Basically turning your pc/laptop into a TV. Costs £15 at most.

Add a VHS recorder (if you still have one that is), you'll normally require a scart lead, a Scart to RCA adapter, RCa cables etc (togeter won't cost you more than a tenner).

Play the tape on the TV software, press record and they'll normally come out in mpeg format.

you'll need a scart cable (for the video), 3.5mm jack to rca cable (for sound) along with the scart adapter.
