Question

I have finally figured out how to create a Mpeg 2 file from the 3 vhs home movies that i purchased the product for. I am having a lot of trouble getting the files onto my blank dvds. When i try to burn the file, the encoding process completes, then when it tries to start burning i get an error - "error while aborting 80004003". I have tried every different setting - with menu, without menu, named, unnamed, and every different burning speed - nothing is working. I have also tried importing the mpeg 2 files into other software that supports them, but they are not recognized. I have not encountered this problem....Ever. Editing and backing up personal dvds and video/audio files is a hobby of mine, I am very familiar with the process. What does this "Easy VHS to DVD" program do to the files that is different, and makes them unaccessable to all other software. Please help me find out what I'm doing wrong. These movies are very important to a close friend. They are home videos from the 50s that he would not trust even a professional company to handle, I gave him my word that they were in good hands and that i could deliver him digital copies of them soon. I do not want to have to give them back and say "I'm sorry i couldn't make copies of them using a easy VHS to DVD program." I will sound like a retard.

Since you did give much information on what software version you have, what operating system, etc it is hard to offer any suggestion on where you problem lies. Once you have supplied this information (as recommended in Jim's post) more help can be offered.

 

 

Can you play the captured video files through Windows Media Player or any other software video player? VHS2DVD creates a DVD compliant mpeg2 video that is handled by all editing programs.

Perhaps if you explained exactly what you are doing we can see what you are doing wrong.

 

BTW, how long in time are the video you are capturing? A standard 4.7GB DVD can only hold 60 minutes at best (HQ) quality. Any longer and the video has to be compressed and you lose quality. Since you have "Old" video you of course want to keep the best quality.

I am using a friends computer to contact you, because i don't have internet at home, so i will get the information required to you later on today. What is a linefeed??? Thanks for responding, Neil

 

Do you have a "return" or "enter" key on your keyboard? If yes, then you use that to create a linefeed! It is used to create a new line when typing text. It makes a post readable and your whole text is not one long, unreadable paragraph.
