Question

Hey there. I have burned several DVDs from VHS Videotapes using the Roxio "Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus" hardware/software. The DVDs play on my laptop, but they do not play on our Kosch DVD Player. The files are saved as .mpg. What did I miss? Is there a trick to getting these to play on DVD players?

 

Thanks

It appears that you burned your DVD as a data DVD, not a movie DVD. Therefore, your Kosch may not recognize it. Did the Kosch give you any kind of message when you tried to play the DVD?

 

Please answer the questions that Walt asked.

I am not sure what you are asking, as my question relates directly to the Roxio "Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus" software. I followed the directions in the manual for this product. We are copying our VHS Tapes onto Memorex DVD-R's. Our intention is to play these DVDs on a Kosch DV-X721 DVD-player connected to our TV. The Roxio Software saves (there doesn't seem to be a choice) the movies as .mpg files on the DVD-R's.

 

There is no video_ts file on the DVDs. The DVD player GAVE NO MESSAGE. The DVDs just spin incessantly in the DVD player without initiating.

 

thanks

If you do not have a Video_TS folder on the DVD then you did not create the DVD correctly. That Video_TS DVD folder will contain a number of files with the extension bup, ifo and vob. There should be no file on the DVD that has the extension mpg

 

What method did you use to create the DVD:

1-Record DVD or 2-Record, Edit and Save.

 

Method 2 is the preferred and more reliable method.

 

How long in time is the video you are trying to burn to DVD?

Thanks Guru. My daughter did the recording (she is 23, so I felt confident!). so I assumed there was only one approach to recording a movie onto a DVD.I expect that she used option 1, now that your question has prompted me to review the software. Are you suggesting option 2, because it results in the files that you mentioned within a Video_TS folder? If that is the case, I will try another VHS tape now and record using the second option. The movies that she copied were of variable length. some were greater than 4 GB, and were split into two DVDs. Some fit onto a single DVD. I see there is an option to record a movie onto two DVDs if it exceeds the capacity of the single DVD. Any other hints re: option 2?

 

Thanks again

Either option should create a Video_TS folder containing the files I have mentioned. I prefer Method 2 since it separates the capturing part from the DVD authoring part. With method 1 if you have some problem while burning you then have to start the capture all over again and a possible DVD coater is created. With method 2 you can also edit the captured video before burning.

 

I think your daughter used method 2 since you mentioned 4GB files sizes which you would not get from method 1. Exactly what files are on the DVD she created?

The only files on the DVDs she created are .mpg files, which play on the computer.So, I do not understand how, if she used method 2, the software failed to create the Video_TS folder with the required files, and instead, just created an.mpg file.

I don't know how she could have used this software and got .mpg files on the DVD. If .mpeg files are on that DVD, it was burned as a data DVD. You need to ask your daughter what she did, exactly.

I think the DVD will play correctly. Your daughter obviously did not use the program correctly. After capturing the video to a mpg file on your system she must have used some copy program to copy the file to a DVD as data. DVD players of course will not play such discs.

 

Did you use method 1 or method 2? FYI, Memorec DVDs are not considered the most reliable, Verbatims are much better.
