How to Free Burn 8mm Film to DVD and Transfer 8mm Film to DVD
"I attempted to burn my 8mm film to a DVD with WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe but noticed that the newer version has removed DVD burning function. What can I do if I want to convert 8mm film to DVD?"
The general way to turn 8mm film to DVD is complicated. The is an example: I started a project designed convert all the family's Super 8mm film to DVD's. I started by using my Canon Camcorder to copy from a projector using a Mini DVD-R -1.4GB - 30min disk. The copy from the projector to the Camcorder went really well. As I wanted to edit the films, I decided to copy them into my computer first in order to bring the movies into Windows Live Movie Maker to do the editing. The films came with a prefix of "TS_" unsupported by any of the Windows' apps. Then I converted the TS format [from the Cannon Mini Disk] into a format acceptable by Windows, i.e., wmv, avi, mp4, etc. with WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe. Then, I successfully transfered the film to my computer by using the HD video converting software and I managed to edit the film using Windows Live Movie Maker.

About 8mm Film
8mm is one of the early movies acted by Nicolas Cage as a private investigator who delves into the world of snuff films. Storyline: Private investigator Tom Welles is hired by Mrs. Christian who is a recent widow that found a startling pornographic film in her late husband's possessions. In the film a teenage girl is apparently killed and Welles is pretty sure it's a genuine snuff film. He takes the case and enters the seedy underworld of pornography with the help of Max California, a porn store clerk. His principal clue is the masked man who killed the girl as he has a unique tattoo on his hand. He soon finds the culprits but there is little satisfaction in resolving the mystery.
