Question

The USB capture device using Creator 2011 worked well with Win Vista. Since upgrading to Win 7, when copying a VHS movie using Plug and Burn, the image flickers once every few seconds which is also burned to the DVD. I know of no way to stop this annoying issue. Can anyone shed some light onto this problem.

Capture first to hard drive and then burn the video file to a DVD. That is the better and more reliable method to create the DVD.

With the exception of a new internal hard drive it is the same machine.

 

Are you capturing to that new internal hard drive and is that the same way you were doing it in Vista, capturing to the OS Drive?

 

Are you using the nforce drivers off the MB disc for the W-7 install/same same Vista install?

I recently upgraded from XP to W7 so I have no experience with Vista. However, I have experienced the occasional flicker when capturing VHS to the hard drive, and this is also burned to the DVD. I also feel that the quality of video is degraded compared to the original VHS: poorer resolution and obvious scintillation when played back on the TV (or the computer). I have an older desktop computer (Dell Dimension 8300 with GeForce 5200 FX video card). The graphics card has an updated driver that is supposed to work with W7 and the video capture device. I'm wondering if upgrading the graphics card will improve the quality of captured video or is there another solution to improving video quality. The capture device is converting VHS to mpeg 2. Would converting to mpeg 4 improve things and, if so, how do I change the options?

Thanks for your suggestions. I tried the 'Capture Video' method to the hard drive first but to no avail. The same problem persists. Has anyone been satisfied with the results of copying a video to a DVD in Windows 7?

 

I'm not a computer "guru" but I'll add my two cents anyway. I recently upgraded to W7, but I have a Dell Dimension 8300 that is now 7 years old but has a 2.6 ghz cpu and 2.5 gbytes of RAM. I bought the Roxio USB capture device and began copying some old VHS films to my hard drive(s). I chose the DVD HQ setting and immediately began noticing occasional flickering and both video and audio "dropouts." Finally, I brought up Windows Task Manager to see what was happening there, and found that the cpu was consistently hovering between 95% and 100% of capacity. Whenever it stayed at 100% for more than a second or two, the video and audio problems appeared. So I tried capturing at DV SP instead of DV HQ, and the cpu began registering around 50% to 60% of capacity without any video or audio dropouts. I also made sure that no automatic backups or full-system virus scans started during the capture. I'm not sure that Roxio warned adequately about the high demands made on the cpu during capture. If they did, I missed it. You might check the demands on your cpu.
