Trouble using VHS to DVD with Creator 2010

Question

Please Help,

 

Here is some background:

 

I just formated my hard drive and installed a copy of Win7 Ultimate x64, replacing my copy Vista x64 Ultimate. I installed Roxio 2010 and for the first time since I purchased it. It work liked a champ. Very happy!!!! No more error messages or having to stop services.

 

I was so happy, I ran out and purchased Roxio easy VHS to DVD. I figured things were going so well with my DV tapes it was time to tackle the old VHS tapes.

 

I opened the box and plugged in the Roxio Video Capture USB and Windows 7 automatically started to download drivers. Hallelujah!!!

I don't install VHS to DVD software since Roxio Media Import sees the device and seems to work fine.

 

My next step is to try to import a VHS using Roxio Media Import. This seems to work until the VHS is about 30mins in. Then it goes all bad. The time elapsed resets itself and starts to count from zero as if I just started the capture. However, file size continues to grow.

 

I end up with a 2.5 min file that is 7+ gigs. Please see below.

I tried with a couple of different tapes and it keeps doing this at different points of the is the capture process. When I try to view the file, only the last few minutes are viewable despite the file size. Any ideas???

 

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

 

 

Dave

Make sure you have the Creator 2010 updated to SP1 – look at the Version after clicking Help – About from the Home app.

 

Seems to be something with the signal of the VCR getting interrupted??? Some users report problems if there is a break in the recorded portion of the tape.

 

Something you can test! Use a different source, a DVD Player, TV, anything that has RCA or S-Video OUT.

Thanks for your quick reply.

 

I do have SP1 installed. I will do some further testing as you suggest and report back. However, if I find it is due tos my VCR. The signal is getting interrupted. Can we agree that the resulting behavior is a software bug. I think it should stop recording and whatever has been recorded to that point saved. Not that the file size continue to grow and you lose access to everything prior to the glitch.

 

 

Thanks again,

Is the Set Capture Length box checked?

Hi There,

 

Thanks for responding

 

Problem persist whether the box is checked or unchecked. I watch as it captures and the elapse time will reset but the file size continues to grow.

 

Checking the box just makes it stop recording after a preset time.

 

 

Thanks for your help,

 

Dave
