Screen Says Finishing But It Never Finishes


Recommended Posts

Hi...I just bought this program, and as a test I tried recording something on a DVD-R for 2 minutes. When the recording was done, the program shows "Finishing" and a revolving wheel. But it's been showing the "Finishing" label and wheel for several minutes. And when I try to close the program, I get the message "Cannot close until the recording action is stopped or finished". But it never finishes! I tried this twice with 2 different DVDs.


Also I noticed that when it is recording, the video showing pauses on the screen, even though I can see on the TV that the video is playing.

Thanks, Rich

OK an update...I tried this again, but set the duration for an hour, and then I stopped recording after 2 minutes. The video this time didn't stop until I manually stopped the recording, and it said Finished for awhile, and then the DVD door opened and the program said it was done. And the recording was made. So I will try recording for an hour next time and let it finish on it's own, and see what happens, Thanks, Rich

Well we know the 'program' works as intended, so we really need to be looking elsewhere...


FIRST, no one uses "Record DVD" ~ it is simply a short path to disaster :huh:


Use "Record Edit and Save" for all of your projects!!!


Also a rare few of the Capture USB devices are sensitive to breaks in the input... This is seen when you have a VHS Tape and there are spots of 'Snow' in them.


Your Media can play a role too!


Quality Media has a name like, like Verbatim (Singapore) and Taiyo Yuden (JVC)... If it doesn't say that, don't let it into your house :lol:


Always good to have disc or 2 of DVD RW on hand too. They are erasable (reuse) and great for trying things out, BUT NEVER use them for anything you consider important to you :huh: They Fail without warning ;)


If those things don't get you going, next post list your PC specs like I have in my name block.
