Recording Stops Spontaneously

Question

Used Roxio Easy VHS to DVD3 Plus for one month. Worked fine. Had transferred 40 tapes to DVD. This week encountered problem with the recording of a VHS tape stops spontanously after about 5 - 10 mins. Different tapes, same problem. Re-installed SW 2x. Same problem. Past the 14 day registration time period to get free technical help. So.... any body out there with any ideas why this happening or how to fix this problem? Used on HP laptop with 2.16 GHz N3520 processor, 4 GB RAM, 64 bit, 750 GB HD. Thanks.

Thanks for your reply.

No. As I noted I had copied 40 tapes up to this point with no problems. I tried several more tapes but had same problem. Just came up a couple of days ago. Spent the last 2 days trying different tapes and finally re-installing 2x with no success.

Cannot eliminate hardware issues, like overheating. Captures draws power from the USB Port (note the heat of the device) and A Lot of CPU processing power. Make sure everything has good ventilation and there is not a colony of dust bunnies clogging the intakes ;)

 

Then you should try a proper repair:

 

First thing to do is to turn off your Anti Virus, Firewalls, Registry Cleaners, etc.

 

Unplug your Roxio Capture Device and put it aside until you are completely finished.

 

Now insert your Roxio Disc.

 

Be sure you accept the offer to Check for Updates (this is for Roxio, not Windows)

 

When you reach the screen where
Repair
is offered, choose that!

 

When the Repair competes, turn your AV & Firewall back on and reboot.

Have you tried one of the tapes you captured previously?

Are you capturing/burning directly to DVD? The best method is to first capture to your hard drive and then burn the captured video file.

How much free space on your hard drive? Done a defrag lately?
