Hello people-- I have been trying to get the WHOLE VHS tape onto a DVD and have had no luck-  I am missing the last few minutes from the VHS. It seems that my VHS is about 2 hours and a few minutes and the DVD is only recording 2 hours .  I was told that I can trim the recording BEFORE I actually burn it onto the DVD??? I used the RECORD option on the left side and I was able to do a few tapes in full. But not others?? So Roxio said to use the right side option of record edit and save-- and choose the 3 hours option??? So my question is this- do I have to go thru the whole BEFORE burning procedure and then he said a blue bar will appear under the speaker icon and that is where I can TRIM the video to the proper length and THEN burn it onto my DVD??? Is this correct??? Remember what I am trying to do is FIT the whole VHS recording onto ONE DVD. Please advise.
  It seems that this way I have to sit thru the whole PRE BURNING and then to TRIM the video I have to watch it again??? this can take hours--- is the the correct thing to do??? Please advise. :unsure:

Of course you have to go through the whole pre-burning process!  After all the video has to be captured and encoded to the correct DVD video format before it can be burned. If you have a 2 hour tape it has to take at least 2 hours  but most likelya few hours longer depending on your system.

Doing a direct to DVD capture often results in coaster especiall for longer tapes. Most "experts" recommend the record, edit and save method.
