Audio Track Unsynched With Video

Question

I just successfully copied my first VHS tape to a DVD. It went easily but the audio track is slightly out of synch with the video. Is there any way to adjust that? Anyway to avoid the problem with future copies? I'm running Windows Home Premium on an ASUS laptop. 2.40 GHz, 6 GB RAM, 64 bit OS.

Most would recommend not capturing directly, from the VHS, to a DVD. Instead, try capturing to your hard drive first, then use the software to edit and burn it to a DVD.

Did you check to see if the captured video is in sync. before encoding? Sometimes a long capture will start off OK and then slowly go out of sync. In that case, you would need to make several shorter captures and put them all together, Usually 20 minutes or so is about right.

 

Many times out of sync problems are caused by a crapped up hard drive; especially a severely fragmented hard drive. Here is a link to some toolsthat will help you get rid of those programs you no longer need or those trial versions, clean up your junk and other temp and tmp files, and then to defrag your hard drive. ( I use Revo Unistaller, CCleaner, and Auslogics defragmenter) The ones I use are free. ;)

 

Make sure nothing else is running when you are encoding and burning. Make sure your anti-virus is not actively scanning your hard drive during the burn. That could cause issues.

 

I'm not sure that you can slow down the speed of your burn which would help. I didn't see that in the options.

 

Make sure that you have a couple of RW discs to test the burn. Also don't use cheap discs; Verbatim are about the best you can get locally.
