I was a little reluctant at first about the ease of using the software. I found out that is was easy to install and use. I was able to transfer a VHS tape of my daughter's basketball game with very little difficulty. I have 2 more tapes to go. The only problem I see is that the manual does not give enough information about what types of DVD-R you can or should use. I had one that said it would hold 120 minutes and I thought it would be no problem transferring the 100 minutes game. However, if you choose the "best" recording setting you will only get 60 minutes of recording. I have since purchased a DVD-R that say it will hold 240 minutes and plan to see if it will record the entire game in the "best" setting. All in all, I am very happy that I purchased this program.
