My Current HUGE project...

One of the projects I've been meaning to get to for the past few years awhile is changing over all my VHS tapes into DVDs. 

A ton of my home videos were filmed on this Sony Handycam (circa 2002)….

This little baby holds some of my dearest memories throughout high school and college. I don't want these memories trapped on here forever- so I'm slowly transferring them over one at a time. (And by slowly I mean it took me two days to get one video done…)

I also have TONS of VHS tapes...

Underneath my TV, there are years of VHS's, from dance recitals to special events. There is also a whole other collection of VHS's that have family memories from when I was young. I would like to transfer all of these to DVD so I get get rid of the bulky VHS tapes, and be able to watch all of the memories!

How am I doing this you ask? I'm using a Roxio VHS to DVD converter. I have the mac version of the software and although it takes quite a bit of time, I'm pleased with the results so far. I will keep you updated on my process and how I feel about the program as I continue working on this project.

My goal is to have this entire project done by the end of the year! Ambitious? yes. Attainable? I hope so!

Has anyone ever done this before? What was your experience like? What program did you use?

Have a great day everybody!
