Technical Matters / 8mm conversion to digital.
« on: January 18, 2013, 03:24 AM »
Hi folks
            I purchased a video grabber from Arcsoft at Aldi hoping to convert my 8mm cassettes to DVDs. I'm very basic with computers and soon ran into trouble. The following correspondence I had with Arcsoft explains.

  Me.  When in capture mode the program stops recording and says cannot record for copyright issues, this is nonsense as there is nothing either in the video or background noise that could be construed as copyright.
How can I circumvent this problem to conserve family videos?

Support answer:  Thank you for contacting Arcsoft Support. It's Woody to help.
                           We are sorry if there's any inconvenience caused. Having double checked the cause, I have attached a hot "fix" for you.
Please put the tool under your running folder and run the tool. Please re-run your program and you will find a "Fix" button on your user interface. Please click the button and the problem will be solved.
I hope this information helps. Please let us know if we can help in any other way.

The problem is I have no idea what the hell they're talking about,(stupid ignorant fool that I am) I replied stating this and asking for a step by step explanation to follow, I have had no reply.

Anyone got any ideas please. Thanks for listening.

General Discussion / The world that ceased to exist.

I recently found the web page of the British film Institute, (BFI) and have been looking at films from the Edwardian period 1900 - 1912 which includes many sport films but the street scenes and factories spewing their workers out were what grabbed me. What I found to be sad was the fact that all those people, even the children,
were no longer with us. I couldn't help but think, why were they there at that moment? what was going through there mind at that time? what were their lives like? and the realisation that WW1 was to disrupt there lives and change was coming to england. What would they think of today's world was better or worse?

Could anyone tell me where Bateman's court was in Ashton please?

This place exited in 1871 but no doubt has since been demolished.
