So I recently converted a vhs of my parents' wedding from dvd format. But now I want to have a backup copy on my PC so I put the DVD in and launched handbrake and convert to mp4. It works... sort of... Except that handbrake only saved the first 42 minutes of the video while there is more see on the DVD. [more inside]
I remember reading somewhere about an imaginary giant warehouse that contains every possible VHS cassette. In my memory, the author went on to say that this warehouse contains every movie ever made, and every movie that will ever be made. It contains e.g. the 'Mad Men' series finale, and a tape that's nothing but static, except for one frame of the 'Mona Lisa.' You get the drift. I think it was in an essay someplace, but I may be mistaken. What's the source of this thought experiment?
This movie is a straight-to-VHS, released pre-1990, and features live-action reenactments of nursery rhymes with occasional use of illustrations for the more animal-based rhymes (though I do remember Humpty Dumpty being portrayed in live-action). [more inside]

Help me preserve memories and save money... I have several old VHS home movies I'm trying to digitize so I can preserve them and edit together the good parts. I used a GoVideo machine to create DVDs that are playable. But I can't copy the DVD files to my PC or otherwise rip them. I sent one of my tapes to a company and their DVD copies to my PC and into my movie editor without a hitch. What gives? Do I have to suck up the cost and send the rest in to the service? Anything I might be doing wrong?

So I've been watching a bunch of older movies on VHS like Wait Until Dark (1963) and Sword in the Stone (1967). At the end when everything's black, right before it turns to the black and white noise, there's a sound of a phone dialing very quickly, or something similar. Anybody else ever noticed it? Out of curiosity, any ideas on what that is, how it happens, why it's there, or anything at all about it?
