Hi all,

   If you remember me from back in March, I was having problems installing this program when I first got it on my Windows 10 desktop.  Well now as of yesterday, I completely uninstalled the program and re installed it and it started working fine no problems even with DEP on so and it was streaming beautifully from my VCR to the computer.  I have about 20-30 NASCAR races that I want to convert from VHS to DVD and I was doing one as a trial run last night and it seemed to be working just fine.  I know if the video cuts out for more than 10-15 seconds it will stop the program automatically and that deal is pretty much done.  Well the tape I was converting had just brief 1 second or so blips occasionally but it never cut completely out and there were tracking issues but it still recorded the whole 4 hours that I set it for.  I was using Verbatim 8x DVD+RL DL 8.5gb disk so it should have recorded the whole thing.  When it was done processing and I put the DVD in the DVD player, it only showed from start to finish 2 hours and 5 minutes and it was done.  What happened to the other 2 hours and 55 minutes that it already recorded?  I'm puzzled to how that happened because I was checking on it the whole process and it recorded all the way to the 4 hour mark.  Please explain or help me here?

 

 

Eric

Roxios constant bit rate encoder allows one hour for single layer DVD and the two hours you got for Dual Layer DVD thats it no way around it.

 

Only suggestion is split them up in videowave first.

 

 

I mentioned videowave but didn't see your using Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus, that doesn't have videowave.

 

Jim asked about the span option that is what you should explore.

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

Jim,

   If this is the "span" thing you are talking about in the picture where I have circled.  I have put that slider all the way to the left on longer video and checked the duration box and set it to 4 hours and 0 minutes.  That is what the program allowed me to do.  The program recorded all the way to 4 hours and but I got left with 2 hours of content on the DVD.

You need to use Record, Import, Edit first.

 

Don't use Longest Play Time like Fit To Disc terrible quality.

 

Use the disc span option at best quality.
