    Transferring Vhs To Computer

    Well, it is a challenge that will require more investment in time finding a solution. What the heck, why not? I did open Device Manager and there are some differences. For example, XP shows "Legacy Video Capture Device Properties, WDM Video For Windows Capture Driver (Win 32)". Win 7 does not. However, for Roxio Capture USB, the drivers are the same. Ver. 5.2009.416.0 with a date of 4/16/2009. Win 7 also shows USB 2861 Device with a Microsoft driver of 6.1.7601.18208, dated 7/12/2013. Presumably, the USB 2861 refers to the Roxio Capture USB device. I wonder if this is the source of the problem? That is, the Roxio driver Ver. 5.2009.416.0 being in conflict with the Microsoft driver 6.1.7601.18208? I don't know if this information is helpful or points you in some logical direction, but there it is. To your apparent question about the installation of Creator on each drive, the answer is yes, each drive has Creator 2011 installed. And yes, the proble occurs only on Win 7.

    Doing a repair was one of the first things done.

    Transferring Vhs To Computer

    Yes, I have tried Roxio Media Import/Capture as you suggest. It also displays the same problem. I did disconnect the XP hard drive and attempt the VHS capture in both VHS to DVD and Roxio Media Import/Capture. Continues to be the same problem. That is, the jerky, double image. Consequently, there must not be any driver conflict between the two OSs. By the way, I find that Roxio Media Import/Capture is a far better method of transferring VHS to digital. It offers more options to correct the images. Finally decided to use this method rather than VHS to DVD.

    Transferring Vhs To Computer

    The Creator software installed on the computer is Creator 2011 SE. The software was advertised and bundled with the Roxio USB capture device as shown in cdanteek's link. The dual boot system consists of two separate hard drives, with XP OS on one and Win 7 on the other. When the XP OS was installed, only one HD was connected. When Win 7 was installed, the XP HD was disconnected. The computer automatically boots up into Win 7 when it is turned on. Boot up into XP is accomplished through the Bios by holding down the F10 key. This then opens up a screen showing the two hard drives. To open XP, the hard drive upon which it is installed is selected and then the "Enter" key is pressed. If indeed the software (Which? The Win 7 or Creator 2011) is failing to stop the XP driver while in Win 7 OS, wouldn't that also be in play while operating other programs within the Creator suite, or for that matter other software programs that are installed on both operating systems? Thus far, the only program that seems not to function as intended is VHS to DVD and Video Capture. I suppose the easiest and simple way to determine if there is a conflict between the two drivers is to disconnect the XP hard drive and then run VHS to DVD in Win 7. I have no idea what the question about "Have you done any W 7 updates since beginning in February" means or its relevance? Sure I've done some selective updates. Is this question pertinent to a specific update or several updates, or is the question speculative? Is there something wrong with the Win 7 install? Possibly. However, at this juncture and based on using Win 7 since it was installed, nothing has occurred that suggests there might be a problem.

    Definitely describing VHS to DVD. Since the program was installed along with Creator 2011, I just never thought of it as a stand alone program. Sorry by posting under Creator 2011. Since you raised the point, I did browse the forum and did see a separate forum for VHS to DVD. By the way, I also took the time to check the files on my Roxio Creator 2011 install disk. It shows the file VHSTODVD_20,dated 7/2/2010. As previously stated, I wouldn't bother with trying to solve the issue as I am happy to continue transferring my VHS tapes within Win XP. In fact, the suite of programs, such as VideoWave, My DVD, and Video Copy & Convert, and now VHS to DVD, appear to be more stable operating in Win XP rather than Win 7. In Win 7, Video Copy & Convert and VHS to DVD appear to be the most unstable. Uncertain about the other programs because they are seldom if ever used. Thanks again for the responses.

    The build number shows up on the opening window after opening the VHS to DVD program in Win XP and also Win 7. Posted to Creator 2011 because VHS to DVD was installed when Creator 2011 was installed. Here is some additional information that seems confounding, at least somewhat to me. After successfully transferring and saving the VHS tape on the computer, while in the XP OS, the computer was rebooted into Win 7 OS. When the dual boot OS systems were installed, the installation was made so that Win XP files could be accessed while in the Win 7 OS. My DVD was opened in Win 7 and then the files in XP were browsed looking for the VHS to DVD file. This file was found and loaded into MyDVD/Win 7 and was first reviewed to see if it worked okay, where upon it was successfully burned to DVD. The results were excellent. I wouldn't bother pursuing this any further since VHS to DVD and also Video Capture work just fine in Win XP, which is what I intend to use when converting the balance of my VHS tapes. Thanks for your attention to the VHS to DVD in Win 7 dilemma.

    The capture device is the top one. The back of the device indicates that it is: UB315-E Ver3. Double checked the VHS to DVD version again. Can confirm that it is indeed Bld 201B28A, C13.

    Transferring Vhs To Computer

    If it can be of help determining what might be the problem with operating VHS to DVD on the Win 7 OS boot, I have a better description of the images seen on the viewing screen while in capture mode. It is actually a "jerky" double image. For example, in one scene is a shot of my three children sitting together on the lawn pushing and gawking at each other, let's say in the background. In the foreground at a much larger image, and not all of the image is entirely within the viewing screen, is the identical scene of the three children. In other words, I see two of the same image, one adjacent to the other, with one being a larger image as though it were closer to the camera. How strange is that? It's as though the events are being captured twice at the same time with one capture being slightly delayed and magnified. This phenomenon occurs throughout the playing of the tape. None of this occurs when doing the same while in Win XP. Any ideas?

    The reboot did not solve the problem as it relates to the inoperability of VHS to DVD while in Win 7 OS. VHS to DVD functioned perfectly after rebooting the computer into the Win XP OS. An hour worth of the VHS movie was successfully captured and saved to the HD on the computer. The file was then saved to a RW DVD and then successfully played on a TV. The next step involved rebooting the computer back to the Win 7 OS to determine if anything had changed. VHS to DVD was opened and the VHS player with the movie tape was started. The images were the same. A jagged movement from side-to-side was apparent and could not be controlled by adjustments to tracking. For some reason Roxio VHS to DVD doesn't like my Win 7 OS, or some part of it.

    That may be a valid question. My version of VHS to DVD is Build 201B28AC13 and the capture device is USB 2861. To confirm that Creator 2011 was not experiencing a problem, I ran a repair of it in Win 7 OS. The play of the VHS tape did not change. The description of how the movie appeared on the capture screen was that the movements went side-to-side and the tracking feature on the VHS player did not correct the side-to-side movement. I even tried another VHS player with the same result. Again booted up into XP and performed the capture again. No problem with the movie and it's capture. Yeah, at my age the memory isn't as good as it was. I believe some refer to the problem as CRS disease, if I remember it correctly?

    Transferring Vhs To Computer

    Found the solution to the problem. Rebooted computer from Win 7 to XP. VHS successfully transferred to computer. Now burning the video file to DVD. Apparently Roxio VHS to DVD doesn't like 64 bit, which is what Win 7 is operated at. Had previously transferred a VHS tape but it was back 3 years ago. Forgot it was done in XP.

    Custom Menu Styles - Moved From Nxt Forum

    I don't have NXT4, but do use Creator 2011. In Videowave one can insert a color panel at the beginning of a production and then add text to the blank color panel. This is what you have described as wanting to do. Hopefully, the same can be accomplished in NXT4. It's a simple and straight forward process. If you want something more elaborate, an appropriate photo can be inserted in the first panel on which text can be added. I have done both while creating productions utilizing either slides and/or videos.
  13. Ah yes. The free upgrade. Based on the number of posts in the forum reporting conflicts with either recently purchased software and/or older software, one has to wonder if much time was spent either considering and/or determining whether existing or new software programs would function with the "free" upgrade. As is often stated, "There is no free lunch". Now the question becomes, how much longer can Microsoft users viably continue to use the previous operating systems? My intent is to go as long as possible, and this determination was made after using Win 10 on a trial basis. It did not provide features that satisfied any unmet needs. By the way, it required quite a bit of doing to eliminate the aggravating pop-up that appeared each time Internet Explorer was opened. Sadly, Microsoft was quite deceptive with some of their updates. Several are telemetry updates that provide information to Microsoft about one's computer and also installs what became an incessant nag to update to Win 10. If anyone wished to know which updates are related to Win 10, it can be found on the Win 7 forum.
  14. Have read the information. Why would I be negative after reading the information? It is what it is. Since my last posting I Googled about adjusting virtual memory settings. There are many responses and quite varied opinions. Since the "Not enough storage space" issue has not occurred on a regular basis, and it has only occurred in Videowave, plans are to just leave things as they are. If this does become an ongoing problem, it will be dealt with then. From what I did read after Googling the subject, and it addresses my original question about why the error message appeared, it's apparently caused when using programs that places a heavy demand upon computing, such as video editing apparently does. Thanks for the help.
  15. While working on a slide show production, one that was nearly complete, the above message appeared after double clicking on an image in Media Selector to magnify it for a closer inspection. I entered the message in search but nothing came up. Each time thereafter, when an image was double clicked to magnify it, the same happened again. The slide production was saved and closed and opened again, which seemed to solve the problem. What caused the problem? It must be related to some type of operating memory since the system memory appears sufficiently large. Have been able to overcome the disruption so it's not an event that has ruined a production, but I am interested in learning why it happened.
  16. I apologize for how the typing of the post turns out on the forum. Typing in Win 7 OS is a struggle, even with spell checker turned off.
  17. Answering your second question, there was an error message but no error number. Regarding your first question, the amount of virtual memory is shown as between 6,129MB with a maximum of 8,000MB. It has been my understanding that the OS more or less defines the amount of virtual automatically. However, in this instance, the automatic box is not checked. Rather these are manual settings. I did not personally input these settings. Consequently, I have to assume the settings were done either by the person that originally serviced the computer and initially set up the dual OS system, or it was done by the service person that is currently in use. So if these settings are incorrect and require adjustment, what ought they be? The installed RAM is 8GB. Changing virtual memory to 1.5 times actual seems quite large, and what effect will it have on the operation of the computer under ordinary conditions assuming that when the error occurred in Videowave it might be considered as an unusual condition.

    Disk Burning

    Had to recently replace the video card. Purchased Nvidia card. Burned the first AVCHD with the new card. During both the initial and burn rendering process the Preview window shows the following: Nvidia/Cuda. How do I get rid of the ad and get the preview window back? By the way, the disc burning process was successful.

    Disk Burning

    I suppose the old video card could be put back in the computer, but then the computer wouldn't work since the old video card was damaged due to a power surge. The rendering took nearly an hour to complete. The production is 34 minutes in length.

    Disk Burning

    I don't believe that I want to choose software rendering, it took quite awhile to complete the burning process in hardware rendering. The production used up almost all of the capacity of the DVD. Now what in the heck I'm supposed to learn from the old post about ATI Stream and Nvidia Cuda, I have no idea. What is shown in my Render preview screen is identical to what is shown in cdanteek's post. Surely, there must be a solution to eliminate the Nvidia Cuda logo from the preview screen while in render mode. The previous video card that was in the computer was a ATI Radeon HD 5670 model. It didnot show the ATI logo in the preview screen and I don't recall ever having to do anything to remove it, and nearly every previous production was rendered in hardware mode.

    Video Copy & Convert

    Hope I can get some guidance. Have several videos shot on an iphone in portrait. These videos were later transferred to my PC. I've just used VC&C to rotate the videos to landscape and saved them. Not having done this before, but is it possible to now transfer the videos to iTunes or back to the iphone using VC&C ? If possible, how?

    Video Copy & Convert

    Added the iphone created videos to the slide show while in Videowave and then rotated them. Very neat. The challenging part was finding the correct length audio tracks to add on each side of the videos so that the audio tracks didn't overrun or impinge on the audio recorded on the video. All works fine and completed the slideshow. Now left with one more slide show with two videos to add. Thanks again for the help.

    Video Copy & Convert

    Okay guys. How should I make out the check, and where should I mail them? Thanks a bunch. Surprisingly to me I've used this feature in the past. It might be blamed on CRS. Is it necessary to explain what it means? Again, thanks for your help.

    Video Copy & Convert

    There are apps that rotate the images. Unfortunately, after the images were transferred to the PC, the back up images in the cloud were lost. So there is no opportunity to recover them. Will have to look for an app to get them back on the iphone so the images can be rotated.
