'capture Now' Not Enabled On Vhs To Dvd 2010 Edition

Question

Help. I have just purchased the 2010 VHS to DVD edition & after carefully following instruction from various web based sources I am still unable to work the 'Plug & Burn' device.

The 'Capture Now' button is not active. i.e. it is light grey & nothing happens when I click on it.

Also when the 'Preview' runs, there is no picture, only sound!

What am I doing wrong?

My operating system is win.7.

In that there was never any such thing as a “2010 VHS to DVD Edition” could step back and look at the box then tell us exactly what it is you really have? (maybe Creator 2010 Special Edition?)

 

Save a little time and tell us you PC specs too – video card in particular.

 

We should be able to get you going once we get the right info ;)

The box definately states 'Roxio Creator 2010, VHS to DVD Edition. Easily Transfer VHS Videotapes to DVD'

I suspect that it only works from Camcorder to DVD.

I dont know if I have a video card. My computer is a Samsung R519 & I have not added a video card to it. Does it not come with Video card installed?

I only have a VCR to play my tapes on & I suspect that this software does not support VCR transfers, only from Camcorders.

Thanks for your help.

 

John.

How have you got your VCR hooked up to the Roxio USB device (is a scart connector involved in your setup).

No Scart, an RCA-Video Cable & an RCA Audio Cable from my VCR connected to the Roxio Video Capture USB (as supplied) in my computer.

 

OK......if you are not seeing a picture in the preview (this is assuming you have the VHS tape in and playing) something is amiss.

 

Try a test by using a different source of signal ( DVD/Camcorder) and use the same cables that you are using for the VCR.

I live in Spain & I bought the product from 'Worten', 'Worten Espana S.L.' Malaga.

That explains it, European products often have slight variations in the names, Creator here is referred to as WinonCD in Europe…

 

Try out the test that ogden suggested.

 

I am curious. I thought VCR’s in Spain used SCART? (keep coming back to this because your symptoms are typical of SCART connections)

 

If you are using the RCA plugs on the VCR, recheck them to make sure both are OUTPUT! If they are the RCA plugs found on a SCART that can be a problem.

I was using RCA plugs on the VCR.

I gave up on that product & took it back for a refund!

I then bought Roxio 'easy VHS to DVD'. In order to simplify things I also purchased a scart adapter & composite cable.

After connecting every thing up correctly I started to play the video on the 'Record DVD' sreen and guess what?

NO PICTURE, only sound again.

This is a new product with new cables & I am sure I have connected every thing up correctly.

I have played tapes on my VCR on to my television & everything is OK.

Is my computer missing something?

Both my computer & VCR were bought in the UK with UK specifications.

HELP, again

I don't think that my VCR has a 'Video Out' socket.

There is no Yellow socket for the video out plug to go, this is why I am using a scart adapter.

However as I still do not get a picture, only sound. There must be a problem with my connecting up.

When I play through my TV using a scart plug everything works OK, so why not when I use a scart into the computer?

I am sure now that the problem lies with the Yellow video cable.

What do you think?

So......you do have a Scart connector (you initially said you didn't). There are many,many different scart cables out there. They are wired internally to work on specific applications.

Here is one that users have used with success http://www.amazon.co...41109242&sr=8-1 .

Let us now how you make out.

I have borrowed a friends VCR & it works OK, so the problem was with my VCR not having a yellow Video out socket.

I never said that I did not have a scart connector, just that I was not using one as it was not supplied in the Roxio packaging.

However it is now working, albeit with another VCR.

It is a mystery why I cannot get video out with my own machine, even using scart?

The scart is the problem.....its a mute point now as you have it working.

 

FYI

Good luck

Part of the problem you may be facing is the broadcast standard. While both UK and Spain use the same video and chroma syste, the audio is different (Spain uses Pal-I with 6 MHz audio and the UK and Ireland use PAL B/G with 5.5 MHz audio

 

Also, what also occurs is some SCART adapters are one-way (video in or out) and you need a switchable one with all pins connected

That's the one I recommended in post 12.
