Question

Using Roxio Easy VHS to DVD 3 plus. Copied VHS onto computer using "Record, Edit and Save" and clicking on "Start a new project." Named project. When project complete, clicked ona rrow at right bottom to burn DVD using Optiarc DVD+-RW AD-7200S 101A and all went well. Tried to play on Samsun Blue Ray, Magnavox DVD player, new Sony portable DVD player, and computer. Sansung "Cannot play disk. the video format of the disk does not meet required output format of this product." Magnavox & Sony just did not play and computer showed a "Unknown DVD" and showed menu only. Using Windows Vista, checked to make sure DMA is enabled and it is. Have the disk, should I try reloading software? Any other suggestions?

What kind /brand of disc are you using? Sometimes there are bad discs in a bunch; sometimes there are just bad manufacturers.

 

If you have the disc in your computer and explore it (not play it) what do you see? Please take a screen shot and post it here. Directions here. Use the more reply options at the lower right when you are ready to reply.

 

Also please take a screen shot of the "export" screen.

How to take a screen shot using Windows (look here).

 

Put the disc in your optical drive, If it tries to play, stop it. In MyComputer (or Computer) window, find the disc and right click on it. Select "open" you will see the contents of the disc. Take a screen shot of that.

 

What is the length of the time you are trying to put onto the disc? One hour is the maximum for single layer discs.

Sorry, not successful with my printscreen key. However, I put 3 minutes on the disk and in properties in shows the following: Type: CD Drive, File System UDF, Used space 302,153,728 bytes 288 MB, Free space 0. That is wrong, as 3 minutes of video would not take up all of a 120 min 4.7 gb disk. I am going to store to get different brand disk - any suggestions?

Use Windows explorer to look at the folders/files on the DVD and list them here.

 

The info you got is correct. Once you have burned a DVD, it is finalized and you can nolonger add anything to the dDVD. That is why the Free Space shows up as 0.

 

BTW, don't be misled by the 120 minutes for the 4.7Gb DVD - that is just marketing. A 4.7GB DVD can only hold 60 minutes of video at best quality. Any longer and the video has to be compressed to fit and you lose quality. Putting 120 minutes of VHS video (already "low" quality) on a DVD will give you very poor quality.

2 Folders as follows:

 

ROXIOPLASMA - 3 FILES: METADATA, 1024 KB, DAT File, PLASMADATA, 42 KB, DAT File, and PROJECTDATA.DMSD, 30 KB, DMSD File.

VIDEO_TS - 11 Files: VIDEO_TS.BUP, 10 KB, VTS_01_0.IFO, 14 KB, VTS_02_O.JFO, 14 KB, VTS_03_O.IFO, 14 KB, VIDEO_TS.IFO 10 KB, VTS_01_1.VOB, 191 MG, VTS_02_1.VOB, 66.5 MB, VTS_03_1.VOB, 32 KB, VTS_01_0.BUP, 14 KB, VTS_02_0.BUP, 14 kb, VTS_03_O.BPU, 16 KB

 

I used my Control Panel to remove and repair came up, so I repaired the program with the disk. My recorded disk will now play on the computer, but will not play on any DVD machine. This is, however, progress, as the DVD wouldn't play on anything prior to the repair. I also tried downloading new Corel drivers and nothing changed.

 

Thanks again for your assistance!
