So here's my situation. I recently transferred several VHS movies to DVD on a Samsung DVD/VHS recorder. I was able to play the movies back on that machine and also a Panasonic Blu-Ray player without any problems. When I attempted to try them on my mac and PC, they wouldn't work. I downloaded Nero on PC which played them back perfectly. However, in order to have the option to recode them (into MPEG-4 or whatever), I have to purchase an upgrade to Nero, which is twice what QT Pro costs. What I would like to know is if QT Pro first of all can play these discs and if so, can it convert .VRO files into something more generic? Anyone have any experience with this stuff? Thanks in advance!!!
