When I try to write a video to disc using Easy VHS to DVD 3, I frequently get the message "There was a problem writing to the disc."  I have successfully written several discs with this same setup but now I am consistently getting this error.  I have tried a different DVD (I am using 4.7 GBytes 1x - 16x compatible) but I get the same error.  I am limiting the amount I write to less than 1 hr of video.
I've tried quitting the app and restarting but no joy.  I will do a re-boot (it is Windoiws after all) and see if that helps.
In the mean time, does anyone have a solution to this?
Rich.

Could be your Media...

Could be your Burner...

Could be the software, but that would be a distant third :lol:

Most of us stick with Verbatim (Singapore  Mfg.) & Taiyo Yuden (JVC) as far as media goes ;)

You could try shutting off your startup items & AV (outlined here - Prep Steps) then start the install & choose Repair.

Thanks Jim!  I'll add 'could be Windows.'  Following a re-boot, I could write to the DVD.  Seriousdly, I don't think it is Windows.

Your 'could be the media' maybe right.  I am using Staples DVDs - who knows who makes them.  I guess a DVD is not a DVD is not a DVD!  I'll try Verbatim and JVC.  I have used Sony DVDs and do not recall a problem there.

I'll also look at prep steps.

Thanks again!

I have a similar problem.

I just bought Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus (box kit HW and Sw) and a new Samsung burner (TSSTcoprCDDVDW SH-224BB SB00- checked and it is latest firmware) from Newegg.

1. Installed both on Dell Vostro 200 Win XP SP3. First Project. No problem. Converted VHS Video to .mpg and burned no problem.

2. 2nd project Converted to .mpg started the burn and went to bed. Next morning woke up to blue screen of death. Rebooted. Tried burning 2nd project get "Problem Writing to Disc Error".

3.Did a repair Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus software re-installation. Tried burning 2nd project get "Problem Writing to Disc Error".

4.Next unistalled and reinstalled Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus as described in000012552- Preparing your computer for installing Roxio products.

5.Tried burning 1st project again to disc but get "Problem Writing to Disc Error". Note this worked the first time.

6.Next burned first project using Roxio Creator 2009 on same disc, compure and burner that failed using Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus and it burned fine and played in home entertainment DVD player.

What needs to be done to get Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus to burn discs reliably?

I am having the same type of issue: "Problem Writing to Disc Error".  Have not gotten it to work at all. I have the Roxio easy CD creator to copy disks and that works fine burning DVDs.  So I know the DVD burner itself works fine.

I am running windows XP SP3.

I am able to create a mpeg video file and watch that, but I cannot burn a DVD.  The owners wants this to convert VHS home movies to DVD, but I cannot have the user creating a MPEG video then using another peace of software to burn the movie.  We purchased this because I have used roxio in the past and it has been rock solid, but cannot get this to work at all the way it is advertised.

Does anyone know the actual Roxio tech support phone number or is this blog the only thing?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Please describe with some detail exactly what you are doing especially when trying to create the DVD.

Capturing first to your hard drive and then burning to DVD is the most reliable and recommended way to transfer VHS video to a DVD.

I have had the same annoying problem, but have stumbled on a  "fix."   Go to the Control Panel, then "Uninstall a Program."  Select the Roxio program and  "Uninstall."  Select "Repair."  It will start re-installing the program and you will need your installation disc.  It's worked for me every time (roughly 10 times).  Unfortunately the problem recurs about every other time I try to burn  a disc.

This program has other bugs as well, and I would not recommend it to anyone.

Your supposed solution is obviously not a "fix" since you have to do it over and over again.
There is something wrong with your system or setup or how your are proceeding. The program works just fine and I have not come across any bugs.
If you are having problems why don't you tell us about them instead of making a general, unsupported claim.

Way back when, an overly aggressive Registry Cleaner would remove some Roxio .dll and the program would not work.  Are you using a registry cleaner either as a stand alone or as part of an anti-virus?  Most of those problems were fixed but you may be running into the same issue.  There is really NO GOOD REASON to run a registry cleaner.  The benefit only the people who sell them.

Have you noticed any other issues with software or files on your hard drive.   I suggest that you run the Windows "Error Check " on that drive.  It used to be called disk check. (Windows Computer- system drive (c usually) -properties- tools- Error check.
