any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
hey I just noticed this, sorry for the delay.
there are a couple of ways.
the one most people find easiest is to get a dvd recorder, then burn the game to a couple of discs and then rip the game from the dvd to the hard drive. there are a number of freeware programs to rip the game from disc to avi on your cpu.
the way i do it is, I have a capture card. I plug my tivo into the capture card, and record the game. Its real time so you have to sit and watch the whole game! I recommend a capture device that is internal, a pci card.
there are many to choose from and they all come with software that allows you to record in many formats and edit.
If your a beginner you can get a program like pinnacle studio or ulead video. they are fairly inexpensive and come with a capture device and the software, and you can burn the games right to dvd from there also.
Let me know what you do I would be happy to help.
