The DVDs I burn with this program are unreadable by a DVD player or by a computer.


I recently purchased Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus and installed it on my old desktop PC:  Gateway DX4840, RAM 8 GB, Intel Core i3 CPU, Windows 10 Home v. 1511.


I installed Roxio's Windows 10 patch update.  


Windows 10 itself updated automatically last night.


The Roxio capture hardware is attached correctly, and I capture old family VHS videos just fine.  They appear on my hard drive as MPG files, and I can view those files with Windows MediaPlayer.  But I want to clean them up and burn them to DVDs as gifts.


Using the Record, Edit and Save option in the Roxio program, I started a project with four video clips, adding up to 1 hour and 40 minutes of content.  I succeeded in trimming, stabilizing, and denoising, which improved the video output noticeably on preview.  I added titles.  So far, so good.


Then, I chose the DVD option and exported the project to a fresh Verbatim DVD.  It took about four hours to finish.  (Is that normal?).


The finished DVD won't play.  The Sony DVD/VHS player says there's a disc error.  (It plays other DVDs without a problem.)


The finished DVD also won't play on the computer.  


The finished DVD has folders labelled ROXIOPLASMA and VIDEO_TS.  The latter has .vob, .bup., and .ifo files.  The .vob files are large enough to represent the four video clips.  They don't play in Windows MediaPlayer.


I've tried the same steps multiple times, on fresh DVDs.  Same results.


Is this a Windows 10 problem?  Anyone else experiencing difficulties like this? 


Roxio's live tech support center is closed for the holiday.  Any suggestions?

A video 1:40 long will not fit a standard 4.7GB DVD which can only hold 60 minutes of best quality video. Any longer and the video has to be highly compressed to fit and you lose lots of quality and the DVD may also become unplayable on DVD players.

There is an option  to span the video over several DVDs. Did you use that?

4 hours may be normal depending on your system as well as the amount of rendering required to reduce the 1:40 to fit on the DVD.

Thanks for the suggestion.  I've tried repeatedly with just 40 minutes of video; same results -- the resulting DVD can't be read by a DVD player or by the computer.

May I suggest something different, just to help check out the hardware.  I think you should be able to simply copy files to a DVD using Windows 10.  (I haven't used W10 yet.)  But if you drag-and-drop a couple of your .MPG files to your DVD drive, and then tell Windows to write those files, it should put them onto a DVD disc.  


This disc won't be playable in a DVD player, but Windows Media Player should be able to read the disc, and the files, and play them from the disc.  (I am assuming they play okay with WMP if you play them from the hard drive as well?)  


If that works, we at least know that your drive, and the discs you're using are working okay.  If it doesn't work, then the first thing I would suggest would be to get some other discs, (cheaper than buying a new drive) and if those don't work, then suspect an issue with the drive.

exported the project to a fresh Verbatim DVD.


What type of Verbatim DVD?


DVD -R, +R, -RW, +RW?


What X burn Speed are the disc's?


What burn speed did you burn the disc at?

I'm just a fellow user so please don't blame Roxio for any misguidance I may have provided.
