    Playback Issues

    You asked for how I added the files and a screenshot of just before I hit the burn button. I posted every step I took to get the video off the VHS, onto the EVD, and then onto the disc. When I put the disc into a DVD player or a Wii, the disc cannot be read. Below is what happens when I open the D drive or try playing it in Windows Media Player.

    The computer uses Windows 7. On the 3rd image, I have video showing and I hit record. On the last image, the only difference is that there is a recordable DVD in and then I press the "Burn" button. After that I don't touch or do anything until the disc ejects. I also have it set to where the computer does not go to sleep after a certain amount of time (just in case that messed anything up).

    Before any responds, let me try this on another computer to see if the burner is the problem. I'll be back.

    Then why isn't it burning? I go to the export tab, I click on 'Burn', and then I don't do a thing until the disc ejects when it is done.

    Those are the titles of the .MPGs that were supposed to be burnt onto the disc. The actual size of each is between 191 MB to 395 MB. Not sure why only 15 KBs were burnt instead.

    So I think I found the "smoking gun" but I'm gonna answer the questions first. What does the term "...play it on the computer I downloaded it from" mean? (files are 'downloaded' from the internet. Everything else is Move or Copy/Paste) Not a techie at all. I meant the computer that I used EVD to get the video off the VHS, onto the computer, and (eventually) the disc. And then the term, "If I click the .MPG file on the first image..." Where did the MPG file come from? How did it get to this computer? I played the disc on a different computer so that I didn't accidentally open the MPG saved to the HDD. When I open the D drive, this is what pops up. The MPGs are under the heading "Files Ready to be Written to the Disc". What are the Operating Systems on these 2 PC? (as in XP, Win7, Win8, Win10) On the computer I used EVD on, no idea. It's the boyfriend's so if you tell me how to figure out which one it is, I'll look. On the one I'm using to play the discs, it's Windows 10. What are you using for Playback on these two? On both, I've done it the same way. I open "my computer" and then open the D drive file. When I tried viewing through Windows Media Player, it says that the disc is empty. I checked a few other discs that I had used to make sure and all showed the same thing.

    If I play it on the computer that I downloaded it from, everything works fine. If I play it on a different computer, one of two things happen. If I click the .MPG file on the first image, I get the cannot be played message that is the third image shown. If I click the .VOB file, the video is 7 seconds of a black screen. I'm not sure why they are showing up as .VOBs if I changed them to .MPGs. And it's like that on all of the DVDs not just the one I took pics of.

    I'm using a Gateway NV53 with the following: AMD Athlon II X2 M300 15.6" 16:9 HD LED LCD 500 GB HDD 4 GB Memory DVD-Super Multi DL Drive Webcam Multi-in-1 card reader After reading a different post about updates, I checked for and did the EVD Plus update. Once I open EVD, I click on Record, Edit, and Save. When Digital Guru posted about changing properties to .mpg, I did that. I open a saved project and then either click "Export" at the top or right arrow button on the bottom right of the screen. Yes, I normally have a blank disc in the drive. The destination drive is the only one available. I wait for the disc to finish burning. I don't do anything on that computer until the disc ejects and there are no other programs running at the same time. Is there any other info needed?

    I've wasted 7 discs using the EVD so at this point, I'm trying anything. The videos have been changed to .mpg. I've tried this on two different types of discs - Sony DVD-R and Verbatim DVD+R DL. I've played this on two different DVD players and the Wii. I've tried burning directly from the computer. Any other ideas because I'm tempted to write this off as a waste of money and find something else.

    When you put a blank disc in the computer, a little icon pops up on the desktop that's titled Roxio Burn. You can drag clips there to burn without having to go through the EVD program. In the Export window, the D drive is the only option that I have.

    I've changed the properties to .mpg. I'm using Sony DVD-R and Verbatim DVD+R DL. I've tried pulling the videos from the hard drive to EVD. I've tried going straight to the Roxio Burn D drive that pops up when you put in a blank disc. I've tried burning directly from the computer (not using any Roxio stuff). I've tried sending them through email to another computer, making sure that it's .mpg and burning. I've tried playing all discs on two different DVD players and the Wii. Every single time the message is some version of "playback unavailable, disc error". What else do you need to know?

    Ok, stupid question. So if I change the properties on the HDD from VOB to MPG, it will play as MPG in EVD?

    Sorry for the delay but school work comes first. Once I change the videos from VOB to MPG, am I able to burn it from Roxio or do I need to burn it through the computer? If through the computer, here's a new issue. These are old drill team videos. I'm trying to burn them in sections so that I can add a menu instead of people having to search through the whole thing. As a result, I am having to edit certain things out which Roxio lets you do. However, if you go to your video file to play them on Windows Media Player (or whatever your computer uses), it plays the entire clip unedited. Is there a way to save the edited version to the computer? I looked and can't find one. (Fair warning - If it's super easy, I'm gonna check into an mental institution.) Thanks for the help and let me know if I need to expand on or clarify anything.

    When I put the DVD into the player, the tv shows a message saying playback is unavailable. Of the 3 VOB files, one is 936,672 kb, one is 23,968 kb, and one is 32 kb. They automatically open in Windows Live Movie Maker. Not sure what you mean by where did you get those mpgs. When I start recording parts of the vhs tape onto Easy, it records as a mpg. That is what the recordings properties are on the computer. Opened the project - On the record, edit and save side, you can save projects. I went to file, open project, picked one of the projects (collection of recorded clips), and then went to export to dvd. What else is needed?
