Question

Just installed Easy VHS to DVD. It works great for 2 or 3 minutes then the picture freezes and it stops recording. The vcr continues to play and send video signal but the recording freezes. The counter in the pfogran shows it is still recording but it isnt, it is frozen.

 

Any help would be great

Please psot your computer specs. What else do you have running that could take focus away from your CPU and GPU?

 

Do you have your anti-virus set to scan everything written to your hard drive?

Thanks for quick reply, it is a Dell XPS 8300, core i7 2600, win 7, Nvidia HD6600 card (2gb memory), 8 gb ram, brand new system. I have noithing else running, ms security essentials which I have turned off. I should also say that the video is very choppy even before it pauses.

 

Thanks

Avoid using a USB extension cable from the device to your computer. This will reduce the signal strength and may result in a poor capture. Also, using a USB hub or USB extension cable can reduce your signal strength causing a weak signal which can result in poor capture quality. Preferably, plug the device directly into the back of the computer.

 

If you are using Plug and Burn, try using the Capture Video option in the Video-Movies tab instead. Your computer may not have the resources to handle both capturing then switching to burning as well. Also, Plug and Burn is not recommended for audio-only capture.

 

Make sure the tapes you are trying to record from are of good quality. Tapes that are too old or low quality can create a variety of capture errors.

Also as a quick test, connect a DVD player/camcorder as your input (instead of the VCR).

 

If that works ok, the problem is with the VCR or tape you are using.
