Error while Finalizing Disc


BURNSY
 Share

Question

Hello,

 

I am new to this forum having just purchased the Roxio Easy VHS to DVD,everytime I try to burn a disc it gets to 97% complete and I get an error code stating an unrecoverable device error occurred. Error while finalizing disc. My computer is running Windows 7 with 6gb of ram and over 500gb of hard drive space free and is only a month old,I don't think a defrag is the problem. I switched to Roxio after having Pinnacle dazzle(which does not support Windows 7 yet?). I would appreciate any help,I'm just trying to upgrade VHS home movies to DVD,before they are too old to view

Did you purchase it from Roxio, a download?

 

Did you buy it in a retail store? If so does it have on the box the Windows 7 logo, meaning it's compatible with W-7?

 

Earlier versions are not compatible!

Are doing a Plug&Burn or are you first capturing to your hard drive?

Hello,

 

Thank you both for your quick replies.; I bought it at Best Buy today and it does have a Windows 7 logo on it. I was trying to do a plug and burn, meaning I plugged the roxio converter into my vcr and then to my computer. I can see the preview fine screen fine

Avoid the Plug&Burn since it causes all sorts of problems. If there is any failure while burning, you have to do the whole capture process gain :rolleyes:

Capture directly to your hard drive and then once you have captured your video burn the video to the DVD using "Create DVDs" This process separates the capturing process from the burning process.

 

BTW, a standard 4.7GB DVD will only hold 60 minutes of best quality video, which is propably what you want for video from VHS.

Use Media Import, DV 720 x 480 AVI or DV HQ, use videowave to edit it and save as a image file, then MyDVD to burn it to disc.

60 min of DV avi will require about 12-14GB of disc space but you do get the best possible quality. Eventually when you burn to DVD it will be compressed to fit on the DVD.

I am running into the same Error Problem and have already wasted 3 DVD's.

The manual doesn't tell how to first capture the video to my hard drive, is that an option with the software?

Thanks for any and all assistance!

 

 

Is this the version you have, click support, about this software?
