  1. I have been using this product for a couple weeks and it worked just fine. I have been moving VHS's to DVD's. All of a sudden now right when I am ready to burn onto the DVD via the software, it starts to burn it and even says "exporting" like it is working, then after a few minutes an error message pops up that says "Problem writing to the disc" and it spits the blank DVD out. I have tried rebooting my laptop a few times, I have tried repairing the program via the uninstall on the control panel, I have tried shutting the program down and restarting, nothing helped. Again, it did work just fine and all of a sudden the program itself works, but does not let me put onto a DVD. I am using DVD+R with 4.7 GB capacity, and they have worked just fine thus far.

    Problem Writing To Disc

    I'm using Windows 7, but I've already done a few of the discs so far. It's no biggie about the text, I simply wrote it down on paper so I can always know what the clips are

    Well maybe I'm not explaining myself properly. It did export the text to the folder that now holds the video clip after the export yes. But the way Windows DVD maker works, it appears that once that folder is put on the DVD it doesn't have that text there that explains which clip it is. For instance Roxio worked Where I had about 50 clips, and let's say I labeled one "Christmas 1996". Then it will on the DVD menu have those words so I know what the clip is. On Windows DVD maker it seperates scenes but doesn't have that label

    I understand what you are saying, but you are saying the option is there to have lower quality to make more time on the DVD...the issue is that Windows DVD maker doesn't have an option at all about having lower quality to make it longer or even like an auto fit option. It simply won't let me do more than the hour. I definitely did put text on each video clip from the Roxio program (and it did have chapter menus that showed that text on the first few DVDs that worked from Roxio), once I use Windows DVD maker though it won't put that text on the DVD

    So it did work by using Windows DVD maker, only issues I didn't like was that the text of each video clip doesn't show on actual DVD like it did from Roxio. Also, the Roxio DVDs that did work held about an hour and 40 minutes, for some reason the same DVDs only hold an hour on Windows DVD maker

    That is what I'm talking about. It's called Roxio Easy VHS to DVD 3 plus

    Gonna try it now. One question...I notice when you click "scenes" to pick a specific scene on the DVD to watch after it's done, the text that I named each single video clip (over 50 in total) isn't on the DVD. It doesn't have that text that explain what each video clip is. Any way around that? It did show it when I used the Roxio software to burn the DVD

    That's where I'm confused. Because I have like 50 video clips I'm using. So what do I do with them after all this that you showed on the pictures ?

    Thanks Jim. Can you post pics? Of any option you think would work. Really appreciate your help

    The only picture there would be is the "problem writing to disc". I'm sorry, a close family member just passed so I don't have the time to post the picture. Any help going forward would be appreciated though

    I simply did what you said. You pop the DVD in and do it the way you mentioned. After a few minutes it pops out and says problem writing to the disc. Every time I do this the disc is blank because it wasn't able to write anything to it

    Same results

    I took a chance and uninstalled it, did all the steps you suggested and re installed it (it did save my projects). I now tried to do the burn and STILL doesn't work
  16. Adam868

    Problem Writing To Disc

    If I uninstall it, won't that get rid of all my projects? Also, it's just a free trial it looks like, am i able to do just a regular uninstall? By the way, the new video capture did not work either

    The project files won't burn to a DVD, even the project files that did burn to a DVD a few days ago. I'm just about done recording new video from VHS to laptop and will then try to burn to DVD

    I know that I'm just telling you one of my projects that worked fine and burned to a DVD just fine now isn't even working. I can try what you are saying as well.

    Problem Writing To Disc

    Ok here is an answer... I just tried burning a project that already did successfully burn for me the other day. I tried burning that successful one (the hour and forty min one) onto a new DVD...didn't work. Same error message
  20. Adam868

    Problem Writing To Disc

    Yes, the same project. So are you saying I should try to make a new project file from the same video clips? Like close that one and then open a new project and add the same imported videos ?
  21. Adam868

    Problem Writing To Disc

    This is getting so frustrating. So now I put it at 56 minutes, best quality. Still didn't work... I tried a new project, literally for a test I just put a 2 min video to try and it DID work. But that's just 2 mins...
  22. Adam868

    Problem Writing To Disc

    I know what you mean. I can try another project and see if it works. I just meant that I already did knock it down from 1 hr and 32 mins to like 1 hr and 10 mins and it still didn't work
  23. Adam868

    Problem Writing To Disc

    I'm not sure what you mean by formats. Also, but again it worked many times with an hour and forty min videos
  24. Adam868

    Problem Writing To Disc

    Well I did try taking some video down and putting it at 1 hour and 15 mins...still didn't work. But again the projects at 1 hour and 40 mins did work. So it can't be that it's too big, because again it tells me if it can't fit on the disc before I press burn

    Problem Writing To Disc

    I am not talking about quality though...it's simply not working. That's the issue
