I just bought the Roxio Easy Vhs to Dvd Plus 3. Found a bunch of old Vhs tapes and want to convert them to Dvd. I did this years ago but am having a problem now. I can get the VHS tape to show on the screen and it will show that it is recording. The problem is when it asks to put a recordable DVd into the drive, it won't recognize any of my drives.  I tried it on two other computers, so its not bad drives, I know this isn't something most of you folks deal with, Just wondering if anyone has any ideas. T.I.A.

Unfortunately I'm not able to assist. Perhaps another will reply. In the interim though, you could go to the Support Forum for your product. You'll find Roxio Easy VHS listed under Other Applications at the following link: http://forums.support.roxio.com/


I never make the same mistake twice....I always make it 5 or 6 times just to be sure!

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Canopus-Grass-Valley-Thomson-ADVC-55-Digital-Video-Converter-FireWire-/231599879345?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item35ec6db4b1

the best way to transfer your vhs video is to use the canopus video capture device

this device conevrt the vhs analog video signal into digital

you must have a firewire card installed in your pc

you may have dropped frames if you try to capture your vhs video via your usb port since usb is too slow

yes, the hvs video is of a very low resoltion something like the vcd with a resolution of 352x288 but there is a possibility to have dropped frames (lost frames)

if you have too many dropped frames your video will be too jerky !

i wouldn't recomment roxio or nero simply because you can do the job with less money if you buy any usb video capture device

you can use your windows xp movie maker to capture your vhs video, best results with the s-video connection !

there so many free programs to convert your windows media files to mpg-2 9dvd) and burn your dvd's

some usb video capture drives are not working under windows xp service pack 2 nor under windows 7/8

I have gotten as far as getting it onto the hard drive as an Mpeg2, can also download as Mpeg4, which is the better of the two? Lost at this point, instructions vague, how/what do I need at this point to burn  to DVD. T.I.A.

I am still learning about video editing. So far,  my understanding is that Mpeg 2 is for DVDs which you want to play on standard DVD players and/or burn copies to discs which you send to friends and family for their DVD collections. Mpeg4 seems to be the standard for posting to websites, eg; uploading your video to YouTube.

 

Before you end up with endless headaches, as I have, over the complicated subject of video files, codecs and containers have a look at this simple explanation in easy to understand graphic form. I hope it is useful to you: :)
