Finishing Forever

Bite the bullet and throw out the bottom of the barrel Memorex discs. Some in a package are good and some are bad but why take the chance? Most store brands are the same way.


The "best" discs, if you are really serious about saving those memories, go on-line and get some Taiyo Yuden -JVC discs. many people agree that they are top of the line. If you can't get those, get Verbatim (made n Singapore) or even Sony.


Many people new to video editing will look at the 120 and believe it. (you are not the only one) You may be able to fit 120 minutes of garbage quality on a DVD but since you are starting with standard or lower quality, you really don't want to make it worse. You want to keep it to 60 minutes at best quality.


BTW, never, ever put paper labels on a DVD. They spin faster and get hot so the label can detach , throw the DVD off balance and have it start flying around in your drive. Not a good situation. You can get pens that are DVD compatible for labeling. If you have a printer that will print on a DVD, you can get the white printable labels that look professional.

Thank you for the question and the advice. I am very much a novice when it comes to anything like this and was so annoyed when I couldn't get it to work. I did use Memorex brand because I had bought those before knowing differently. I saved I on my computer and then transferred it to a disc and it worked! I still am amazed that I did it. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

I recorded directly from VHS to DVD for one hour. The software has been " finishing" for one hour and 45 minutes. What's wrong?


You can't get more than one hour on a DVD. Select to capture the video to your computer and then work from there. I'm sure there is a lot you can cut out or you can use a double layer DVD.
