Disc error



Hi all,

I'm new to the group but not new to using Roxio to convert VHS to DVDs.  I've not had a problem until now.  I'm converting as I normally do but when trying to play the DVD that I create the player throws the "disc error" code.  I've tried 2 players with the same result.

The only thing that I can think of is the DVD was recorded in extended play. I've been using the same computer and Roxio device for several years now.

Any ideas?

Could you tell exactly what program you are using as there are several Roxio programs that convert VHS to DVD? Your post can then be moved to the correct forum.

Also exactly what settings are you using? Are you converting direct to DVD or are you first capturing to a file on your computer?

How long in time is the VHS video you are capturing/converting? You certainly do not really want to use Extended play since that will lower the quality quite a lot

Hi there,

Thanks for your reply.

I'm using Roxio easy vhs to dvd for mac. 1994-2011

I'm converting to a file on my computer.

I set the program up to stop recording at 120 mins.

Like I mentioned, I've been using this without a problem until now.  The only difference I can think of is the VHS that I was given was recorded in EP.

Burning a 120 minute video to a DVD will of course create all sorts of problems. A standard 4.3GB DVD can only hold 60 minutes of video will require a lot of compression and a huge loss of quality especially since your source video is already at low quality.  Even at highest compression I think VHS2DVD cannot burn 120 minutes to a DVD
