I select the Easy VHS to DVD icon.

I get two choices - Record DVD and Record, Edir and Save.

I choose Record, Edir and Save.

I get the Blue Screen of Death.

 

Windows 7

No input attached

Acer NetBook

 

Give us more information on the netbook especially what operating system it is using. New ones usually come with W7 Starter and I don't think it will work with the Starter edition. Actually I do know, because I tried it. and got the same thing.

 

Look on the side of the box to see if it says W7 starter edition. See if you can return it.

 

Even if it worked with W7 starter, it would be very slow and you would end up with many dropped frames making it useless for your needs.

I just found more info.

To answer your question: I am using an Acer Aspireone NetBook w 2 gig mem. I am running Windows 7 Home Premium.

The Netbook's resolution is 1024x600 (I think they all or most are this). This causes problems with a lot of programs because you don't always see the bottom of the screen.

To work around this, I fool the computer into running 1024x768 resolution. Because the screen is not capable of this, I get a slightly distorted screen but at least I see the screen and cdan therefore click on the lower selections in the program.

Well, there lies the problem. I get the Blue screen of death only when I run it at 1024x768.

Roxio and other programers should rework their programs to work with NetBooks. All microsoft programs work fine.

Hi there!

 

I Have almost the same hardware configuration (Running on Windows 7 Starter) and I found that the Roxio cable equipment works great with Windows Media Encoder. No blue screen of death no dropped frames, no audio/video sync issues.

 

But when using easy vhs to dvd on this same equipment, like you I get the blue screen of death when clicking on either option.

 

My question is how come Microsoft can make digital capture a reality on our little netbooks and Roxio apparently, well, let's just say they have an issue...

 

According to Roxio's website and packaging our netbooks are within minimum specs. Nowhere is any specific version of Windows 7 mentioned!

 

I do hope that the Roxio tech person who reads this is encouraged to have their R&D develop a patch to this problem as I'm confident the rest of their code is robust enough!

 

Best,

PCsqueezer

I am afraid you are wrong, it clearly states

 

Minimum System Requirements:

Microsoft® Windows 7 Home Premium (32- or 64-bit).

 

We are just users on here and support rarely comes on here, so if you want to pursue this with Roxio, click on the support tab at the top of this page.

 

In my opinion there will be NO patch..... "it ain't go to happen", sorry.

What is your hardware configuration? If your video chip is the same as NHCon, then aside from what Ogdens said about your "almost" version of Windows 7, you don't meet the minimum requirements to run the software.

No worries!

 

I just upgraded to Home Premium, fiddled with the msconfig and got it to work! Thanks for the good advice!

 

I will then try using an external monitor to deal with the resolution problem. Hopefully that will work! Will keep y'all updated...

PCsqueezer, Thanks for letting us know. Too many people try to run these types of programs on marginal or lower capibilitiy computers. What netbook do you have or specs?

 

I'm glad you were able to get it to work. What did you need to change in msconfig (so that other people learn).

Hi sknis et al.,

 

I want to make sure my final configuration works before I post details. I was just so excited that I got a signal without the fatal crash, I had to post! Details to come soon...

 

Okay... Using an external monitor resolved all the crashing and the system is stable. But, just as I had been warned, the video capture is a bit choppy. Using the performance monitor, it is clear that the 1.6 Gig Dual Processors were maxed-out. So I'm trying to isolate the program(s) that are doing the most processing to see if they can be disabled, thereby allowing vhs to dvd to run more effectively. Ah the thrill of squeezing the most out of a machine as possible! :-)

 

Well, Easy VHS to DVD requires more powerfull equipment than my trusty little ACER AspireOne AOD250, with it's Intel Atom 1.6Ghz Dual Processors, USB v2.0 and 2GB of RAM, external VGA monitor and Windows Home Premium. Even though the program is stable, video capture is far less than ideal.

 

So. My recommendation is for users to utilize hardware equipment far beyond ROXIO's rather inacurate minimum system requirements. Something which I cannot afford to do.

 

I do like the ROXIO adapter and cables and continue using them with my netbook and other software as they work quite well!

 

Best,

PCsqueezer
