Question

Does my computer really matter I don't really think so..........

 

I have the Build 201B23A ENU (not sure what that is)

 

The same as I said in the title can't do more than 2hrs and 59 mins on the Recording Duration

 

I am doing this on the Record Edit Save option not the Record DVD (since it doesn't work)

Neither can I, so what is the problem?

I don't know its dumb why we wouldn't be able to do it

 

I am doing The Lord of the Rings first two movies which are each like 2 hrs and 59 mins just the maximum but I have a feeling that out of my Dads like 320 movies theres one that is over 3 hrs

Why would you want to put 3 hours of video on a DVD that can only hold 60 minutes of video at best quality? Any longer and the video has to be compressed and you lose quality. With 3 hours you would not want to watch it.

 

Also, what you are trying to do is illegal.

I don't think legality nor the capability of a DVD-R should be a factor in how long you can record. I don't want to go direct from VHS to DVD, I want to make digital files so I can edit prior to burning the DVD. I have personal tapes (as I said, legality isn't an issue) that are longer than 3 hours. Why can't I make one digital file, why should I have to create two? Now I know I don't have to limit the recording to 2:59, I can make it unlimited by not selecting the timer. But that also means I can't just start a recording and leave, I have to continually monitor.

The legality does not have anything to do with how long you can record, but Roxio can get into some trouble, if other users in the forums, help folks who are blatantly performing illegal acts of reproducing protected video.

 

If you want to capture a file the length that you are talking about, even if the software was capable of doing it, I would be willing to bet that there would be so many drop outs, that the A/V sync would be so far off, it wouldn't be worth the time it took to capture it, nor would it be worth the amount of hard drive space that the capture squandered.

 

Editing a file that length in time, would be another issue. :)

 

But, if you feel that the software should be able to capture for that amount of time anyway, contact Roxio directly, and lodge your complaint.
