Easy Vhs To Dvd 3 Plus Not Working

Recommended Posts

Hi there

On my old motherboard and hard drives it was working fine. I paid Andrew 2 grand to a brand new motherboard and two new hard drives. He re installed Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus and when I tried to record my VHS tape it won't record at all. I uninstalled it and installed Easy VHS to DVD converter and the same thing only difference it recorded for 1 second and stopped. I uninstalled Easy VHS to DVD converter and reinstalled Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus and still not working. I was wondering why it is no longer working? I hope Eset Smart Security6 Anti Virus program isn't stopping it from working?

 

I hope someone here can help me solve this problem? As I said in July in my old computer/motherboard the program was working fine. I will be sending Andrew from Servant computers a link to this topic as I don't understand computers.

Somewhere between the lines I think you said that it does work but stops recording... :huh:

 

The fact that it works, even for a second, tends to rule out any chance of Driver Issues. Is there any Error Message?

 

Quick test, use a DVD or BD Player for your Source and try recording with that!

 

They produce a strong steady signal and serve as a great simple test ;)

 

Of course Record, Edit and Save should always be used and I would be curious how you have it connected?

Jim Andrew from Servant will look at it tomorrow. Before I had Eset NOD32 which didn't intifear with roxio, this Eset Smart Security6 could be. There is no error message, that makes me think that the Antivirus program could be stopping it. If that is the case I will get Andrew to put back Eset NOD32 and get him to remove Eset Smart Securuty6 from my computer.

Wow, I wish I lived near you to collect some of that money you are spreading around to Jim. Is he driving an expensive car yet?

 

Didn't catch that there should have been a comma after Jim I though that the preson getting all the cash was Jim Andrew ! :o:P

Make sure before he leaves that your Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus is working to your satisfaction.

You missed some punctuation in your Jim Andrew post. (Post #3) :blink:

OK Guys Andrew came to my place today, he looked into what's coursing the problems, now I got him to post this http://forums.support.roxio.com/topic/90213-roxio-easy-vhs-to-dvd-recording-error/ He posted in my account here. I don't know much about computers where Andrew does. When someone has replied to that post Andrew posted under my name, I will let Andrew know as he can explain things to me.

OK Andrew posted in my account this yesterday "Hi guys,

 

I've recently upgraded my Windows 7 Professional PC to accommodate two new 4TB HDDs. My C: is still on an older 1TB drive.

 

I was wanting to save my Easy VHS to DVD recordings on one of the two new 4TB drives, each formatted as GPT (not FAT32 or NTFS), but Roxio records for 0 - 1 second and then stops. When I record to my C:, formatted as NTFS, it records perfectly.

 

This also happens with my copy of Easy VHS to DVD 3 PLUS.

 

So, here are my questions:

 

1/ Is there a known issue with easy VHS to DVD &/ or easy VHS to DVD 3 PLUS whereby they won't record to GPT formatted Windows drives?

2/ If there is an issue, is there a patch for either/ both programs which will allow my to record to GPT drives?

3/ Is there a newer version of this program which will allow me to save to the GPT drives if a patch or work-around is not available?

 

Thanks for your assistance - I look forward to hearing from you soon.

 

Kind regards,

 

TheBillABCTV"

 

Now hard drives are getting bigger into the future and it is my understanding from what Andrew told me the big hard drives are only in the new system. I presume at some point Roxio may make the future new products compatible with this new system. I'm sorry for getting Andrew to creating a new topic, I now have book marked the topics including this topic.

I am assuming that the GPT is being used so you don't hit the 2 TB limits of NTFS and you don't want to create a bunch of pesky partitions to make use of your drives???

 

I honestly do not know but from your testing, I would say that you will have to capture to an NTFS drive and copy later.

 

I will ask but I don't know if I can get an answer ;)

What version of Easy VHS to DVD do you have installed on the Windows 7 Professional PC?

 

Is Easy VHS to DVD 3 PLUS on the same PC?

 

Are you capturing to the new 4TB HDDs in both programs?

The two new 4 TB Hard Drives are on the new system. Andrew knows and understands about this, I don't as I don't know much about computers.

 

I had to uninstall one of the versions which I uninstalled 3 Pro one. I just use the VHS to DVD Converter, I will save them to my C Drive then move them over, however down the track with hard drives getting bigger, I presume Roxio may make their produce compatible with both systems if not then down the track compatible with the new system.

 

I have book marked this topic and will let Andrew know of solutions or what ever replies. I hope you all have a great weekend.

I have a western digital " Black" 4TB HD and it is initialized as GBT and formatted NTFS.

I also have the Roxio VHS to DVD 3 program and it will capture audio and video from my

VHS recorded tapes just fine to my WD 4 TB HD.

 

So in my opinion and experience the VHS to DVD 3 program has no problems capturing

video to a GBT 4 TB HD.

 

redwagon...

For some reason it only works on my C Drive which is fine. At least I know it works for you on the new system, I will pass on your post to Andrew, I'm not sure why it won't work for me when it works for you on the new system.

 

My C Drive [Old System], D Drive [New System], E Drive [New System], I would like to try and find out why it only works on the old system hard drives for me, when it works on the new system for you. This is great news knowing it does work on the new system for you.

 

I have sent an email to Ramon from Corio to read this topic.
