I followed the instructions for copying a VHS tape to DVD using Roxio Creator NXT and the Roxio Video capture USB. Both times I have tried the process fails with the following error: "Failed to start the image writing operation Error while burning Image" I have tried both DVD+R and DVD-R disks. Receive the same error on both. I am trying to copy an old movie that I recorded off the TV years ago, commercials and all. The AVI file created in Step#1 works just fine on the PC. I am running Windows 8.1 on a Gateway Computer. Do you have any ideas as to why this is happening?

Perhaps I'm over analyzing the issue. I guess I don;t know where your error message shows up. It sounds like it could be showing up when you try to copy the VHS to a DVD or it may show up when you try copying the VHS to your computer followed by burning the resultant video to a DVD. I, for one would like to have more details.

 

Did you originally have VHS to DVD to get the USB device b ut then decided to use Creator or did you buy Creator and then buy the device separately?

 

How long is the movie? Remember you can get only one hour of video on a single layer DVD at approximately the same quality as the VHS tape. If you try to put more, first the quality is destroyed to the point where you may not be able to watch it or the program will give you an error message because it just won;t fit.

 

Please, more information.

I think he got it to record and is in the Burning process...

 

But it is impossible to guess with the lack of information :lol:

Sorry I was out of touch there for a while. Yes is was failing during the Burn process. And the problem was because of the size of the file. (1hr and 30min) Guess I should have stayed with Roxio Creator Special Edition 2010. Using 2010 everything worked just fine. Thanks to both of you for you help.

That is a false conclusion! The Length of the project only effects the Quality but if it is too big to fit you will get a message stating that it is too large to fit on the disc!

 

What you have is an indication of a corrupt - file/effect/menu/program...

On all previous Roxio Creator programs when setting up to burn a DVD, if you have placed a blank media disk in the drive that is not large enough to hold the entire burn project

you should get a burn task bar that shows how many disks will be required. (i.e.--If you have placed a 4.7GB blank disk in the drive and you have more than that amount to burn,

it will show on the burn task bar how many disks you will need)

And as other replies have indicated, it has nothing to do but effect the quality of the burn.

That makes sense to me, it always fails during the "Record Menus" process. To answer your earlier questions. The USB connector I am using came with Roxio Creator 2010 Special Edition. A couple of years ago I transferred several VCR tapes to DVD using that program with no problems. We found a few other tapes in the basement that we were going to transfer to DVD using Creator NXT and am having the problems listed above. Here is the process I have been following: I record the VCR video to the computer using the "Capture Video" option. I then have been editing the .avi file with the "Edit Video - Advanced" option. I Then use the "Create DVD" option to burn video info to a DVD. I have tried 4 different VCR tapes, both the ".avi" and ".dmsm" files and they all error at the same place. All recordings are less than 40 min so there should be no issue with file length. The "Burn Project" window shows "Open Project", "Encode Movies",'Encode Menus" with a successful check mark. During the record menus step the DVD runs however it keeps changing speeds. Then all of a sudden a check mark appears on the Record Menus and Complete at the same time. And the error message "Failed to start the image writing operation Error while burning Image" error appears. Nothing was written to the DVD. Just for kicks, I tried the "Copy and Convert Video" Option under "Edit and Transfer" and that completed successfully. Video is not the best in the world but at least it completed.

The 'quality' of the video will be the result of the Quality Setting you use...

 

The default in VCC for a DVD is 720 X 480 @ 7800 kbps... In MyDVD, if, you set it to HQ it will be in the 8000 to 9000 kbps value. (you can push it up in VCC under Custom)

 

There should be 2 ways to fix this!

 

First is a Band-Aid fix, to output an intermediate file in VideoWave and use that separately in a new session of MyDVD.

 

More likely your MyDVD is corrupted and a proper repair should put you back to the good old days ;)

 

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 not of interest for you. The MyDVD dmsm file is only a set of notes as to what settings you choose and what pictures & video are your project... If there is a flaw in one of those files, then the dmsm is only telling the program to load and use the file.

I ran the repair process on Roxio Creater NXT. It did remove and reinstall Roxio Burn and reported updating several others. However the results are the same except for one detail.

It is now giving an error code when it errors. " Failed to start the image writing operation Error while Burning Image 80004003 Error while Aborting". I even started from scratch and made a new .AVI file an tried to burn that to a DVD to no avail. Do you think completely removing Creator NXT and reinstalling work? I did look for that error code but could not find it

Mile High -- Have you defragged your hard disc lately. Is the disc internal or USB connected?

 

Have you try to adjust/make your own menu? How many video files do you have in the project? Are they still in the same place they were when you created the project?

 

Have you tried to burn to an ISO (image file). If not try that and if it completes, play it with the free VLC player.

 

If it does not complete, go back to Video Wave and export (not save) each of the videos you are adding to an mpg2 file- best quality. If one of the video files are causing the issue, it will stop where the programn chocks on it. You should be able to see it and correct it.
