Question

As soon as I hit the "record" button, it stops recording and it saves to my files! How can I prevent it from stopping to record after the first second of recording?

I apologize, this is my first time posting on a Roxio forum board. I was in the process of recording my old VHS tapes to save to my files, and as soon as I pressed the "record" button, it records about 3 seconds of ffotage, then stops recording, and saves to my files. I did not make any recent changes to my computer. I connected my VCR to my laptop, and played the VHS tape.

My VCR is hooked up to my laptop with the wire that is provided in Easy VHS to DVD. I do not understand what you are asking me in the second question.

 

Exactly what program do you have?

 

You started posting in the Creator NXT forum and now you state you are using Easy VHS to DVD. Which is it?

I was in the process of recording my old VHS tapes to save to my files, and as soon as I pressed the "record" button, it records about 3 seconds of footage, then stops recording, and saves to my files. I did not make any recent changes to my computer. I connected my VCR to my laptop, and played the VHS tape. After the VHS tape was playing, I hit "record", then stops recording, and saves to my files as if I pressed the "end recording" button.

 

I have:

- an Intel i3 core processer

- 32-bit operating system

- I am using a Dell Inspiron 1464

- Windows 7 Enterprise

- Composite VHS to DVD wires

- I am using Roxio Easy VHS to DVD 3

Wow, apparently the original poster has the forum settings wrong because he doesn't seem to answer only some questions

 

Is this another case of inserting the USB capture device into the computer before loading the software so that the correct drivers were not installed?

 

Actually the capturing /displaying of 3 seconds was a sign that the VHS was plugged directly into a computer without using an analog to digital converter. If the original poster has the wrong drivers or is plugging in without using the USB converter, i could understand what he is getting.

 

I hope he does answer the questions without challenging why we are asking. He apparently assumes we are looking over his shoulder. :unsure:

 

Nick, go here (link) and attach the information on your computer. Dell has options on most of their models so the information will help us understand what you have and what hardware drivers you are using.

Did you try what that customer suggested?

 

Why is it so hard to understand our questions? You could post in your native language or use Google to do the translation.

Yes, I have tried to change the output directory. It doesn't work for me. Could it be the VHS tape? I have tried many different ones.

If there are gaps in the tape, the program sees them as the end of the tape and finishes the capture.

Lets get back to basic stuff here.......You have to prove whether the problem is in the Roxio software/hardware(capture unit) or your old tapes/VCR unit.

 

Do the VCR tapes play ok when you plug the VCR directly into your TV (No Roxio involved)?.

 

How old are the tapes?.

 

Have you tried using a different VCR player?.

The tapes work just fine when they are not being recorded by Roxio, they have a few gaps. The tapes are old, 10 years. I have not tried another VCR player.

A better test would be to use a DVD player or Camcorder as the input, it gives a better signal than a VCR.
