Why do my Roxio Easy VHS to DVDS 3 plus not copy the entire video? For example, it will copy 2 hours and five minutes, then I come to save it on the hard drive and the first 30 minutes are missing.

I prefer to capture in short 30 minute segments to prevent situations just like you experienced. That way you don't have to start all over again when an interuptions occurs or something goes wrong.

That is very odd that it is the First portion that is missing :huh:

Does it work if you pick less time to capture?

Are you doing the whole Capture and Burn or are you doing the Capture - Edit - Burn way?

Give more detail about what you are doing and your PC so we can try it ourselves ;)

I tried again with a home video that lasted about 56 minutes. I simply started the VCR and then started recording the video. Once it reached the end I took note of the recording time, 56:32. I stopped the recording and I lost about ten minutes. I played the recorded video and it is really at the beginning that the lost ten minutes comes from.

I experimented with three other videos with similar results.

As suggested, I recorded the same video again but this time I stopped at 30 minutes. This seems to work. Now I need to learn how to edit and stitch two videos together.

I use Windows 8 with 12 Gigs of RAM on an i7 processor, I think.

Thank you for your help.

I just noticed that I have Roxio Easy VHS to DVDS 3, not Roxio Easy VHS to DVDS 3 plus.

I have the Plus version, but will try that on my Win8 PC and see what mine does...

Update:

Well I set it for a 2 hour capture and went to bed... This morning I found a 2 hour file that is in tact from start to finish -_-

My STEPS were:

From main interface, choose Record/Edit/Save


Set it for 2 hours of recording


Click Record and Start Tape

Thank you so much for your experiment, I truly appreciate it. I will try it today and report.

It turns out that I do have the PLUS version after all. The software splash screen does not add the PLUS but the blue bar on top does. Also the box says PLUS, I apologies for the confusion.

No problem!

So we are on the same page, follow the steps I listed ;)

Might be good to list your PC Spec too.

I tried again and still I get the same results. It must be my computer. Next thing to try will be another computer. I will try this on the weekend.

I use Windows 8.1 Enterprise, 64-bit with 12GB of RAM on an i7-4770 CPU 4.40GHz.

I would sure feel better if you would list out your steps...

Nothing jumps out with what you listed but a better description would be through dxdiag - detailed HERE

Here is the detailed information on my computer.

By the way, I’m testing the video capture on a deferent PC right now.

Nothing I can see in the specs indicate any problems...

Curious to hear of your test results!

The results are positive. I completed without a problem a two hour VHS home video transfer.

The steps I used are simple. I insert a VHS tape, I open the Roxio software and select Record, Edit and Save. I then select, Start a new project, I then select the red record button then I press play on my VCR. When the video is done, I stop the recording and select the white arrow at the bottom right of the page. I then select Computer and finally Export.

There is obviously something wrong with my windows 8. But now that it works on my less powerful Windows 7 computer I am happy. I will now start transferring the sixty or so VHS home videos to digital formats. I will also visit this site for editing steps soon.

I can’t thank you enough for your help.

A proper repair might get the Win8 PC working for you???

First thing to do is to turn off your Anti Virus, Firewalls, Registry Cleaners, etc.

Unplug your Roxio Capture Device and put it aside until you are completely finished.

Now insert your Roxio Disc.

Be sure you accept the offer to Check for Updates (this is for Roxio, not Windows)

When you reach the screen where Repair is offered, choose that!

When the Repair competes, turn your AV & Firewall back on and reboot.


One other point to make...

Always output in High Quality. VHS Tape is already low quality and if you lower it any more to try to make it fit on a DVD it will suffer badly!!!

A regular DVD will only hold 1 hour of HQ Video. A DL DVD will do 2 hours.

Program will allow you to span across multiple discs, so use it ;) I have done some that were 1:10 and always use 2 discs even though it is so close -_-

Congratulations Digital Guru, you are a genius. It worked. Now I don’t need a second computer.
