Pinnacle do some good products may be worth looking at what they do.
[ame="http://www.amazon.com/Pinnacle-Maker-Quickly-Transfer-Tapes/dp/B000J5694W"]Amazon.com: Pinnacle DVD Maker Plus Quickly Transfer Vhs Tapes To Dvd: Software[/ame]
look at reviews at bottom ( just as one example )
Might be worth a look on videohelp.com and doom9.org for free things but normally pinnacle have been pretty good when I have used there stuff.

I've recently bought this from Pinnacle:
Digital video transfer made easy with the Pinnacle Video Transfer
Great if you want to watch from PC or mobile device, but having difficulty tranferring to DVD (and editing). It saves files as MP4 (H.264/AAC) and not many freeware apps work well with it. Those that do, I find audio sync to be a problem. Then when I finally sorted it out (by transcoding into an AVI), I tried to create an iso image with DVD Flick/DVDStyler, and the audio was out-of-sync again.
Anyone got any good suggestions for software? Willing to buy something if it can handle MP4 well.

Think X to DVD is what you are after afaik ( paid for )
why not just get it to output the normal dvd file structure and use nero or free burning application to burn it to a dvd ( dvd rw ) and use something like imgburn to create an iso of that or create an iso of the dvd directory in the first place using imgburn

That's basically what happens with DVDFlick - it encodes video and audio, combines them, creates the DVD structure, then uses ImgBurn to create an ISO or burn straight to DVD. I created an ISO then mounted with Gizmo to test. The audio was a fraction out of sync.

Mattx: I'd forgotten about mp4cam2avi, I'll give it a go tonight - see how fast it is.

Well, I've just tried ConvertXtoDVD and DVDFlick on my work PC to see if there was any difference to my home PC. Both times I had other apps running while the AVI->DVD process was going on. With DVDFlick audio was still out-of-sync a tiny fraction, but ConvertXtoDVD appeared to be perfect. Quite detailed DVD-related stuff it can do too and easier to use. £35 a bit steep IMO, because I could buy Pinnacle Studio 14 HD for around £31 GBP which will edit my MP4, and create a DVD...

maybe you could contact them either phone or email and mention that and they may do you a deal.
