    Green/yellow Section Across Top

    Thanks for all the help, but I finally have this working. I have a JVC HR-S3911U VCR out into an SV2000 DVD recorder, out to the Roxio device and into my computer. Crazy way to have to do it, considering I could just record it straight to the DVD recorder, but I do want to make sure everything fits and looks good. With that set up, does it tell you what the issue is? Seems like the Roxio device is lacking something.

    Green/yellow Section Across Top

    Unfortunately, the videos burned to DVD do also have the green/yellow across the top when I put them in the DVD player so it's not just showing on my computer(s) that way. I even installed it on another computer tonight still with no luck. 3 computers/4 VCRs tried, green/yellow sections come and go in all, but hook any of the VCRs up to the TV and no green/yellow section at all. I'm not sure what resolution the VHS tapes are recorded in but I know they aren't S-VHS. I don't see anywhere on the videos that it tells me, not commercial nor home recorded.

    I've tried 4 different VCRs now, all of which work just fine with a TV. The final VCR is using S-Video out which didn't fix the issue either. Also tried commercial and home video tapes. I didn't notice this coming in THIS bad from a hi-8 camera, but that did have a small area on the bottom of the image. That was using an S-Video cable as well. I've also tried two S-Video cables and 2 or 3 sets of composites. I don't know of anyone that would have a computer with S-Video or composite ports to have them try. Unfortunately, I purchased this over two months ago from Dell, been messing with it for over a month, and when I registered, never got a code. Apparently I am SOL, since I'm now out of warranty, with no code, and can't get a refund from either Dell or Roxio. Very frustrating and getting too expensive to continue messing with.

    Super easy to install and unfortunately, it's doing the same thing. Must mean an issue with my adapter. UGH!!

    Thank you so much, Jim!!! I hadn't checked back on here since purchasing the VCR with S-Video OUT. Received it yesterday, tried it today, same issue. I'll be trying this software next!!!

    One more thing different about recording from my hi-8 camera, I used the s-video cable. I'm looking for a VCR with an s-video cable output now to see if this will help.

    It does this on both commercial and recorded tapes. I tested a commercial tape first, to make sure the VCR played ok (didn't want to "eat" a family memory!) I did try the fast forward/rewind on more than one tape but received no change. In fact, I always do that with tapes before I play/record them (have for years). I have three VCRs stacked up here and they all put this see-thru greenish bar across the top, sometimes thicker than others. One is a DVD/VCR, tried to pass thru the DVD so it would use S-Video, but I couldn't get the right combo to get it to play. These are tapes that have been copied from video camera to VHS, so I don't have the original hi-8, but as mentioned, this doesn't show up playing when I connect to a TV. One more thing I will try before recording from one tape to another is hook up the XP machine again. I had so many issues with that, but eventually got all my hi-8 tapes done. Maybe I'll get lucky.
  8. I have the green/yellow section across the top of my VHS videos. I have seen this mentioned in other posts, but don't see a resolution. I have tried 3 VCRs and all are doing the same when plugged into the Roxio converter. I have tried multiple sets of RCA cables. The VCRs play the tapes fine when connected to the TV. I have tried daisy-chaining VCRs, this makes no difference. This is a new installation on a fresh install of Windows 7 Home. I made sure to wait to plug in my capture device until after installation. I had this installed on a Windows XP machine and didn't experience this issue when coming from my Hi-8 camera. Has anyone had any luck fixing this issue?

    Problem Writing To Disc

    Under Sound, Video and Game Controllers I have Roxio Video Capture USB and USB Audio Device that show up when I plug the device in. This is all I have ever had. As for deleting all the USB, it was a suggestion on a Microsoft forum to get rid of the BSOD.

    Problem Writing To Disc

    You are correct, it was just a fluke that by unplugging it all of a sudden worked. I've conitinued to have the same issue time after time. I will reboot and then it will work, so I have made it a practice to reboot after each export. I have also followed your process multiple times as I researched this forum before I ever brought up this issue and it has made no difference. The only thing installed on this computer is the XP SP3 all up to date, AVG A/V which I have just left disabled now, and the Roxio Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus software. I have also received a few usbehci.sys blue screens while capturing, removed all USB devices from Device Manager and rebooted, this step hasn't helped the original issues. If the software would pick the videos up in color immediately (another glitch?) and I could somehow manage where to split the video into one hour time slots, I would just write directly to disk, as that seems to be a much less problematic area. I have seen people mention a "mandatory patch" but I've never pulled down any updates when I've checked. Should there be an update or patch?

    Problem Writing To Disc

    My workaround has been to Export to Computer, convert the .mpg to DVD using DVD Flick and then burn using ImgBurn. Thus, I am not "dead in the water" but more manual intervention and multiple programs are required. As soon as the current video is done capturing, I'm going to attempt to Export to DVD again, first unplugging the Roxio device, since I recently figured out that leaving the Roxio device plugged in while trying to Export to Computer was giving me the "Exception Has Been Thrown By The Target Of An Invocation" error.
  12. I know this is an old thread, but I had this same error when clicking on Export and just found that if I unplug my Roxio Video Capture USB device, then I could Export my edited videos. Perhaps this will help someone in the future.
  13. I have Roxio Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus, installed less than a week ago. After a learning curve, I have been able to copy videos directly to DVDs. Looking at the videos, I decided that I wanted to split the videos to get the highest quality. I then recorded the video to disk and edited it to just the first hour of video. I am now at the Export step, have chosen DVD, unchecked Add Menu, unchecked AutoFit, size shows 4.4GB, video length shows 1 hour, Roxio recognizes the blank disc in the drive, but yet I hit Burn and I get the error "There was a problem writing to the disc". I have tried two different DVD-writers, two different types of writeable DVDs, and even checking the DVDs after, they are still blank. I have tried re-installing the software, the DVD drivers, etc. Any other ideas? I have a Latitude D620 with 2GHz processor and 2 GB RAM. Roxio is the only thing running, Windows XP 32-bit with all updates, 55GB of available disk space, and AVG A/V disabled.
