I just bought Easy VHS to DVD software. Is there any place where I can get more detailed information on using the option of this software package. Anyone have the name of a book that has information on using this software? The instruction you get with the software is not very informative .

That version is simply the Video Wave and the My DVD applications that are in the full version. The only addition is the USB device and the application to capture the video. Sorry no Blu-Ray videos.

 

You can just search the forums for help on those two applications or post your question in the appropriate forum. Please edit your signature to indicate that is what you have and while you are at it, put in your computer information. Go to My Controls at the top of this page and then edit signature. It will show up in all your past and future posts. Look for a post by karri and use the links in here signature to get more information about how to use the program.

 

You can also use the manual for those applications.

I also just recently purchased the Roxio VHS to DVD program and was "FINALLY" after about 10 times, got the driver downloaded that the paper work said we had to have, since the driver wasn't part of the software package. I was then able to actually hook up my VCR and CPU correctly and then started following the instructions on how to capture the video and put it on a DVD Disk. NOPE: Just today, I have wasted at least 6 brand new DVD's trying to capture video. The VCR would be playing and the Computer Monitor would show the video that it was capturing from the VCR and all of the times and bytes that were adding up would be doing fine, UNTIL, somewhere on down the line of hours involved, my system would come up saying it had to stop because of an error, duh! At that time, you had to close out that box and then you couldn't click on the FINISH button, since it wouldn"t respond, so there went another new DVD! I have been sending Roxio Tickets for the last week or so about the problem and they finally came back telling me that since my Creator 9 was loaded on my CPU when I bought it a year or so ago, that the VHS to DVD wasn't supported by that version, duh! That is not what the paper work said that came in the box with the software. If I understood them correctly, they were now saying to me that their instructions that came with the new program was basically false representation! Anyway, if am understanding them right, they want me to update to the newer version Roxio-10, in order for my new VHS to DVD Program to work, duh! I went back to them just before I replied to you and asked them outright: IF I UPGRADE TO THE VERSION 10, WILL IT INSURE ME THAT MY NEW VHS TO DVD PROGRAM WILL WORK CORRECTLY? I am now waiting for a reply from them. It looks like they are not telling the whole story up front, since the sale pitch on the VHS to DVD Program says if you have the Creator 9, or the Ultimate, or some other something, all you have to do is go out and download the driver that is needed to make the new VHS to DVD Program run properly. Either way, I would imagine that I will be like many others that have been misled and live with what they first said and will now have to spend more money to get the VHS to DVD Program to work. I am by no means a computer GURU, but I can navigate my way around on one pretty good, so I just wanted to let you know that I am no genius on a computer, but just an every day guy that fools around with one. If you need me to help you set up your program by chatting on this site, then let me know and I will be glad to do so. Once I was able to get the driver downloaded that they said I needed, it was pretty cut and dry from there on, by just reading the instructions, but like I said, even though I got things going good, it did me no good when the system would lock up before all of the VCR Tape was captured. Gone for now. Cotton

Considering that EMC 10 is no longer being produced, you may have a problem there

 

Does EMC9 recognise the gubbins? I can't help much there because I still haven't got hold of one

 

If it does, can you import the video and audio to the hard drive first (instead of trying to do import, render and burn all at once). Once it's there you should be able to work on it with EMC9 - then 'burn' an image file to the hard drive which you can then use to make your final DVD

You have gotten further then I have. The only Roxio product on my system is the VHS to DVD. After installing the software I followed the instructions to use the Plug and Burn Icon and just got two run time error messages. Opened a ticket with Roxio a few days ago waiting for a reply to problem. I hesitate about trying to reload the software because some software will only let you down load so many copies. Its on the same system I know I should be OK but I'm alittle wary.

 

Edited to get reply out of quote.

When you downloaded the software, you should have burned the file, or files, to a DVD.
