"Incorrect Disc" error message

Question

Hello All,

 

Here are the details of my situation:

 

1. Using Easy VHS to DVD for Vista / XP.

2. Using a Dell Laptop 6000 running XP Service Pack 3.

3. Playing 8mm tape through a Sony Handycam Vision.

4. Outputing video from Handycam via S-Video cable.

5. Handycam only has one audio output which I connected to the left audio channel.

6. Used a blank Verbatim DVD+R 16x disc.

7. Added a menu and set up chapters for every 10 minutes (inside Easy VHS to DVD software).

8. Captured video (video played through preview window, audio was playing through speaker on laptop, DVD disc was busy spinning and drive light was flashing) until disc was full.

9. Clicked "Finished" and waited until both progress bars showed 100% complete.

10. Ejected DVD, plugged it into DVD player and after a 3 - 5 minute wait got the message "Incorrect Disc".

11. Plugged DVD into computer, started PowerDVD...which did not recognize that there was a disc in the drive. (Other DVD's play just fine.)

 

Any suggestions on how to get Easy VHS to DVD to actually create a DVD that will play in a DVD player?

 

I appreciate any and all input, help, and suggestions.

 

Warmly,

Lane

Do not use Plug&Burn to create a DVD, first capture to you hard drive and then burn the capture video to the DVD using myDVD. BTW, a standard 4.7GB DVD will only hold 60 minutes of video at best quality.

Hi Myguggi, thanks for your prompt reply.

 

You're way more expert on this than me...so let me catch up...I DID use "Plug & Burn" from the "Home" tab...and I also have an icon inside of "Easy VHS to DVD" (still on the "Home" tab) that's titled "Capture Video"...which I think is what you're referring to because I can see that I can save to a file on the hard-drive. Now, asking questions as I explore and learn how to use this:

 

1. Under "Capture Settings" would I use the default setting of DV (Digital Video)? (Again, remembering that my video source is a 8mm camcorder.)

 

2. Is "myDVD" that you refer to above something that I have as part of "Easy VHS to DVD"? I notice that when I go to the "Video - Movies" tab there is a "Create DVD" button. Is this what you are referring too?
