I am using the Roxio VHS to DVD 3 Plus program to burn old family VHS tapes to DVD. I have used to program to save the VHS tapes onto my computer then going back and using the program to edit out bits of the video. I have used this program on my Toshiba Windows 10 computer as well as my Fujitsu Windows 8 computer when it no longer worked with the Toshiba. For some reason the program burns DVDs just fine for about a week, then it will no longer burn DVDs that will work in a DVD player. After each disk I burn, I check to make sure they work.
I have used Sony as well as Verbatim DVD-R.
Here are the steps that I use:
1. Open Roxio
2. Record, Edit, Save
3. Open the video I want to burn from what I had converted earlier
4. Trim the DVD if it needs it
5. Compress the Video
6. Burn to DVD
Once it is done burning I check the dvd to make sure it works. I don't know why after it working so well that it will start spitting out dvds that give errors on my dvd players such as "cannot read" or "invalid district." I haven't done any updates, changes or anything to my computer. I have just been burning disks on it lately. I am not good with technology, so any help would be appreciated. I am getting sick of wasting disks when the don't work. All I want is to get this project of converting home videos to dvd done for my parents!
