Dvd From Vhs

Question

I used Roxio easy VHS to DVD today for the first time. The DVD disc I burned from my computer (HP G72 notebook) has great picture and sound when played on my DVD player; however, the play is intermitently and continuously interrupted by stops and/or pauses during play. The blank DVD disc I used to record to was brand new. It was the first disc from a spindle that I just opened. I can only assume the error to be my own, rather than a problem with the program or equipment. But, I have no idea what I am doing wrong and the manual for the software does not address product issues. I would very much like to correct this problem. Any ideas?

I would not assume any ‘error’ on your part… <_<

 

For example, junk media is junk media regardless of its’ position in a spindle :lol:

 

However, if you are trying to pack more than 1 hour of HQ Video onto a 4.7 GB DVD, you are asking for problems!!!

 

Soooo tell us all you can about your Project: Time & Sources

 

Tell us about your media too, Brand Type.

 

Would be nice to know what your Version or Build of the software is, there are Four of them!

 

Also a little about your PC & OS, like what I have in my Signature Block. ;)

Hi Jim. Thank you for your response. Sorry it took so long to reply--matters of job & other responsibilities forced me to put this project on hold for a few days. So far, I've only tried to burn one VHS tape. It is a short religious children's film called "Hermie the Common Caterpillar". It is a favorite of my 4 year old grandson. I would simply give the tape to the child, but his parents do not have a VCR (nor want one); but, this film is one of many in my videotape library that the child loves. I purchased the Roxio Easy VHS to DVD, hoping to convert some of these tapes...well, many of them actually...to DVD discs that can be easily mailed to the child, so he can play them on his DVD player at home. I chose this particular film to try to copy first, because it is a short animated film--about 35 minutes--and I thought it would be easier for me to "practice" with. There certainly doesn't seem to be anything wrong with the tape--plays perfectly on my VCR. Nor with my DVD player--plays commercially produced DVDs without any problem. The video plays beautifully in the Roxio window while it is recording, I've not seen any indication of a problem with the recording or burning of the disc; but when I attempt to play the recorded disc on my DVD player, although both the image and sound are clear--the movie just stops (image and sound freezes) about 10 seconds, then starts again for about 30 seconds; it repeats this series of intermittent freezes throughout the disc play.

 

I don't know which version of Roxio I'm using--it consists of cables which connect my VCR to a capture device which plugs into a USB port on my computer, and the software program to use it. It records directly to my disc burner. My computer is a HP G72-B27CL Notebook with Windows 7 operating system. This attempt at burning a DVD with my computer was my first, so I took it to the store where I purchased it, to have the driver and burner checked (thought perhaps either of those might have been faulty). They found no problems with either (nor with my windows meadia software). I really don't have a clue why the discs I've burned are faulty. I've tried four times to record this tape, and the result was the same each time. When I have a little more time to spend on this project, I intend to try it with some different VHS tapes (The others are longer and will take a bit more time to test.) If any of them produce a successful disc, I'll know the problem lies with "Hermie" rather than with me...teehee. But, until I can get this project to work, I can use all the advice I can get.

There is a pinned post at the top explaining how to find Version or Build numbers.

 

You said NOTHING about the media you were using???

 

Does the DVD Play on your Laptop?

 

Get yourself a disc or 2 of DVD RW media, which is reusable, for testing purposes. That way you can do a 5 minute capture and burn ;)
