Can Not Save Captured Video

Question

Using Capture Video in Easy VHS to DVD, I can capture the video to the program, and designate a file to save it to, but there is no button to transfer the file to the designated file on the desktop.

Any suggestion?

 

Thanks,

I don't understand your question? What does it matter where on your hard drive the file is saved? The "desktop" is just another folder on your computer.

Thank you for the reply.

The computer is Dell E520, 2GB RAM, Core 2 Duo Processor, Operating system XP Pro fully updated.

VHS to DVD Version is 111B25F.

 

When I click file I do not get a preferences option. Only Exit appears in the drop box.

 

Does this help?

Thank you for the reply. My answer is yes. The attachment has a print screen of the window.[ Ignore the Snapfire portions]

 

Thanks,

Please see my reply of May 3. Any suggestions?

 

Thanks,

I don't understand what problem you are having. Please explain it better.

 

Your screenshot looks correct if you do not have the VHS running.

Thank you for the reply. The problem is I have no way to save the file from the Recently Imported pane or the preview window to a separate folder on the hard drive.

Unless I still don't understand your problem ... the file you see in Recently Imported window has already been saved to your hard drive in the folder you setup in the "Save To" option with the name you selected. Did you look in that folder?

That is not the saved file but a sort of preview and reminder of what you have done.

 

Did you look in the folder where you want the file saved? You didn't show us the full path but it stars with c:/ Documents and Settings then??? etc.

 

Use Windows to search for the file name 5-3-2011. You may get a couple of places but look for the one where you wanted to save it.

Thank you. I found the file by using Windows search but I really do not understand how it got to the file where I found it. I do not remember designating any specific location to save files. Is there a default system built into the program?

Just wondering. Does V2D automatically save the file to the folder designated in "Save to" when the Stop capture button is pushed? If so this would explain my confusion.

The folder designation in the "save To" is obviously the default . Did you not look at that?

I now understand how the program works. I was making it much harder then it has to be. V2D works well, the problem was with the operator. Thanks to all for your assistance and patience.

You are better off making a separate folder, somewhere on your hard drive, and saving your captures to that folder so that you can always find them. In the capture screen, you just direct the software to save your capture, to that folder.

Agreed. I have done exactly what you suggest. The original problem sstemmed from the fact that the matter is not discussed in the limited instruction manual which came with the program. In addition the sequence is slightly differnt from create and save sequences present in other programs. Oh well so life goes.

Not really, you just haven’t learned how the program Suite works… :(

 

If you wrote a manual that covered every nuance of the Suite it would be 4 inches thick!!! And probably leave something out :lol:

 

There is an intended workflow… Capture, auto save and place a Thumbnail in Media Manager.

 

Edit – load file from Media Manager or using Folder View.

 

Burn – load either the Project from the Editor or the movie that you captured… (for some reason Roxio has never followed through with Media Manager in here :huh: )

 

The version you have is very powerful which adds complexity! It is not a Click & Smile wizard, which the more like current version is trying to be.

 

Browse the older Creator 2010 forums as you will see your version is based on that and it will be more useful to look there. ;)

You are correct. The basic problem is that I did not know how the capture video portion of the program suite works but I am slowly learning thanks to the forum. In the past I have used the plug and burn segment successfully but because of the comments about plug and burn in the forum I thought it wise to go the capture-store-burn route. Your suggestion to go to the Creator 2010 forum is very useful.

 

Once again thanks for the help.
