Record Time

Question

I have become completely frustrated with this program. I follow the instructions, let the program determine that I have a writable disk in the drive, select the record time (2 Hours) start the VCR, press the "Record" button and off we go. Two hours later, the disk ejects, I get the Green CheckMark, telling me all is well, but when I play back the disk, only the first 47 minutes of the tape have recorded. So far, I have wasted a bunch of disks without any difference, evrn though I have tried different recording times.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

That link that Tony provided explains recording times but does not really cover what is probably happening in your situation...

 

I am guessing, that there is an interupt around the 47 minute mark and you really need to do the Record - Edit - Save process and set yourself an alarm to watch your PC starting around 45 minutes.

 

I would bet that there is a break in the Video Signal at that point...

 

Let us know!

Thanks, guys.I have watched the entire tape & there is no break at the 47 minute mark, in fact there are breaks throughout the tape...this is a compilation of home video shots. I successfully used the RES feature and it saved 1hr 42min of a 3 hour tape, in other words, still can't get the whole thing on one DL (or even the 1:42 on a DVD+R. So far, I can't even get the program to write the 1:42 at all, just gives me a blank finalized disk. I have spent a lot of time on this project & would like to get is done, notwithstanding the wasted DVD's!

 

Thanks for your help....

Then it may be your media??? We joke that if it doesn't say Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden (JVC) on the package, don't bring it home!!!

 

Your Recording of 1:42 indicates that the device/software are working fine, so the burning is what is suspect... <_<

 

Yes is can produce a disc that indicates No Errors, hence the Green Checkmark, and still be unreadable in some Players.

 

Tell us about the media and where you have tested it after burning? (PC Burner is a good test)
