I thought I had found a good way to convert about 30 of my old music cassette tapes, but I'm stumped.
My friend has a DVD burner and volunteered to hook it to his stereo to burn one of my cassettes to DVD. I think also he added some of his music to the DVD as well.
When I got the DVD, I'm finding two folders on it.Video_RM which contains files Video_RM.BUP, Video_RM.DAT, and Video_RM.IFO. The other folder is Video_TS which contains files Video_TS.BUP, Video_TS.IFO, Video_TS.VOB, VTS_01_0.BUP, VTS_01_0.IFO, and VTS_01_1.VOB.
From web searches I'm certain the VOB files are the ones that have the audio files in it, but one is only 60kb, which doesn't seem large enough for a cassette full of music, and the other is around 775 mb. I tried sending Video_TS.VOB to zamzar.com for conversion to MP3 for my music player, but the conversion failed. Zamzar is looking into it. The other VOB file is too large for zamzar's 100mb service.
Am I wasting my time trying to convert these old tapes inexpensively? Is there a better way other than buying the $300+ standalone "old time radio" lookalike burner unit that Target sells to convert tapes, records, etc? Thanks. Judy
