Vhs To Dvd 3 Crashes At End - Split From Old Thread

Question

This entry is the closest to my problem so I'll post here. I have Windows 7 on a Dell Inspiron. I've done a lot of work with EAsy VHS to DVD 3 Plus, generally successful using the "record, edit, save" option. Now I'm trying to do a set of straight recordings of videotapes less than 2 hrs long to Verbatim disks, 4.7 GB, DVD+R, brand new, at lowest quality. The problem is that one out of maybe three attempts works. The other times, it goes through the whole process and then when "Finishing" I get an error message, "There is a problem writing to this disk." I can understand a bad disk every now and then, but I've tossed a dozen out of 20 attempts and that is absurd. .... I saw one reply that said "delete your device and let Windows find it" -- that sounds terrifying, and I don't know how to do it. Why should I do that? If you're really correct, how do I do it?

Don't try to squeeze 2 hour of VHS video on a DVD that can only hold 60 minutes of best quality video and avoid using the direct to DVD option.

Forget about the "delete your device" since that is not your problem.

There's really no good reason to try to find a thread that "matches your problem" and tack onto it. Better to start your own. Most times, the problems are quite different anyway.

 

As for your issue, my first thought would be, go back to what works, "record, edit, save". And see if that works properly on a regular basis. If you do 5 of those, and all of them work, (and that is the method most often recommended, not trying to go directly to DVD), then stick with that. If you're getting even some of the discs to work, then there should be no reason to delete your drive from Device Manager and let Windows rediscover it. Not a difficult process, not even very dangerous, but doesn't sound to me like it will help you.

ok, thanks for the advice; I'm new for forums. OK, the record-edit-save option takes more time, but I've wasted lots of time trying to do the direct method, so I'll try that. Thanks! I'll be back if it's not consistent. You've been very helpful.

Sorry, Walt. You must have been posting when I had it open, so I didn't have your post there to include. Or, looking at the timeline, I simply missed it. It's here now.
