Yes, some movies worked and I was able to copy them, while others just gave me the error or no signal messages. I tried using Movie Maker that came with my computer, but it doesn't recognize the VCR so that is why I used the Roxio software that came with my computer. Do you think an updated Roxio software will fix the issue and which one? or would you recommend another software? I'm trying to avoid having to buy a digital converter.
