Re: Hello and A Question

The bottom line: always copy your stuff to the latest media format ASAP. ...and back it up. Remember Schofield's First and Second Laws: https://www.zdnet.com/article/follow-schofields-three-laws-of-computing-and-avoid-disasters/ always do! I am a fanatic about that. I even have a 6TB HD loaded up a...

Re: Hello and A Question

G O O D N E W S ! The older 8mm camcorder DOES work! The problem was that the a/c socket I plugged it into on a power strip was BAD. Problem solved and now I can read (again) the old 8mm and Hi8 tapes. And I have finished scanning the miniDV tapes, 108GB later! Next step is to go through my spreadsh...

Re: Hello and A Question

Thanks for the comments guys. I agree that my Vimeo account should have reverted to free status, so I am not sure what is going on. I tried to access my account from my Apple TV and that also failed. I did request a password reset, but they said my email was unknown. I need to think about it and per...

Re: Hello and A Question

Thanks Sidd, and I am not sure I am back in the saddle yet, just sizing up the horses in the corral! My goal for now is to just make sure the tape content is available as editable files and all is documented as much as I can. I am hoping that some day one of my children or grandchildren will pick up...

Re: Hello and A Question

I am making good progress. I am well into the copying of the remaining miniDV tapes, and have also found my three spreadsheets that contained all of my video tape information, content, what was produced on DVDs, what was on shorter .mov files, etc. I haven't gotten around to looking further at the o...

Re: Hello and A Question

Thanks for the info Chuck. Yes, all going well. I am scanning in the first tape as we speak. BTW, HDVSplit creates .m2t files - I assume the format is OK for the latest Premiere Elements if I buy it. I see that the last version I had (10) seems to accept the files OK. Just want to make sure before s...

Re: Hello and A Question

Peru, I think you are right. I should do the work myself, even if I have to get another camera or deck. For now, I am going to connect the HV30 into the old PC (that has Firewire) and just scan in all ten tapes that have not yet been done. I don't have to do a project, just get them scanned in for n...

Re: Hello and A Question

Hi Bob - thanks for replying! Well, I think the situation is worse than I thought. I am trying to recreate where I was in the family video situation when I stopped doing the work. I never did my family DVDs in any particular order and bounced around from older to newer as the mood struck me, unless ...

Re: Hello and A Question

HI Peru and Steve and Sidd and Dave and Chuck - thanks for welcoming me back! Yeah, I was afraid that was the answer. Well I can still keep the old PC around for as long as I need it, but it is a big hulking monster and I was hoping to get rid of it for good. I can make a concerted effort to read th...

Hello and A Question

Hello from the past! This is your old friend Bobby, back after a long absence. I wish I had something new to report, but Alice and I are still hanging in at age 71 and still living the good life here at the NC beach. I am starting to revive my video hobby, and had to buy a new PC as my old one dedic...

Re: Hello Again... and a Question

Thanks all. I will try to stop by more often, and if I find a good solution I will let you know. First pass I am going to put an image or two on an external HD and take it to a friend's house who has a smart TV and see if it recognizes and plays. That would be the easy solution as both daughters hav...
