Here I go again, not sure that I am using the correct terminology.
I have converted my VHS movies to DVDs. Is it possible to combine several of these DVD’s and maybe some still photos on one disk? It seems such a waste to copy one disk at a time and have so much room left on the copy. The ones that I converted are not on my computer. If I have to get them on the computer, how is that done?
Thank you. If I do not make any sense with my question, let me know and I will try to rephrase it.
You can combine video clips and still photos onto one DVD that can play in a TV by using DVD Maker. See this video: Using DVD Maker
However, the video clips do need to be on your computer. I assume that you had the VHS movies converted to DVD by some service? If so, your best option might be to go back to that service to give you computer files of the videos so you can combine them in ways that you want. If you want to do that yourself, you will need conversion software like DVD to MP4 Converter
also, I’ve just become aware of another free program that may be better than Photo Story in that it can combine video with your slideshows: It’s called PhotoStage. I haven’t actually used it, but I’ve heard good things.
