  1. Thanks Jim. I'll pick up some DL DVD's on my way home from work tonight and give them a try. My only concern now would be if the DVD players will recognize the DL DVD's because I'm sure most of the people I plan to give the discs to have DVD players that are probably 5 or 10 years old. At that point though I'll just use your suggestion to split the videos between multiple discs. I appreciate your help. Best regards, Tosty
  2. Hi Jim. The time of the videos I am trying to put on the DVD's ranges from about 50 to 90 minutes. They are old videos of family picnics I took years ago with the big old-style "Camcorder" type unit that recorded directly onto a full-size VHS tape. (Now that's aging me a bit) Best regards, Tosty
  3. Thank you very much for the info cdanteek, I appreciate it very much. I guess for the 11 gig file I'll have to figure something else out. However, on the 2-1/2 gig video files, each time I "exported" the recorded video from the program I used the "Computer" option and it defaulted to the "PAL" frame rate, and since I know very little about this, I just used the default settings. I wonder if by selecting the "DVD" option if it would automatically compress the recorded file to fit a DVD? Perhaps I'll have to give that a try too. Thanks again, and I wish you a joyous holiday season. Best regards, Tosty
  4. Hi everyone, I am hoping one of you can help me. I transferred several family videos from VHS to my computer using the "computer" option in Roxio Easy VHS to DVD 3. The transfer went okay, but now I want to copy the file to a thumb drive but it says the file is too large for the destination drive. The file size was about 11 gigs but the thumb drive is a 16-gig drive so I don't know why it won't fit? I even went in and exported the "project" again at a lower quality level so the file size was then 6.4 gigs, and it still won't fit on a 16 gig thumb drive. I am having the same problem with files that I transferred that are about 2-1/2 gigs and it says they are too large to fit on a DVD which is supposed to hold up to about 4-1/2 gigs. Can someone please explain to me what I am doing wrong? I am desperate to figure this out because I have to make many DVD copies of family videos for Christmas gifts and I'm dead in the water at this point. I would be very grateful for any help anyone can provide. Thank you for taking the time to read my post. Best regards, Tosty
