i have a sony D8 handycam with USB connectivity option. but recently i tried to convert my tape (format - digital8 in SP mode) to VCD using the Sony's Picture Package software. i had the following problems : a) it was very slow, it was showing remaining time 3 Hrs. to convert 60 mins. of recording. (though i have P4 2.4 Ghz, 512 Mb ram, 80 Gb 7200 rpm hdd with intel D865GBF motherboard running Win XP pro) b) the audio recording driver was SoundMAx but it was not showing any recording controls for USB recording device (SoundMax came bundled with the motherboard) so, all i got was a VCD with no sound. is there any other software for converting VHS to VCD? if not, then can any1 suggest me an alternative to soundmax?
