Faikure toe copy VHS tape to DVD using Smartdisk and Arcsoft Software

A Smart disk product no 800094 has been supplied with two cds. One labelled Videosafe with Quick DVD and the other Cameramate Pro fix. When either is run to transfer VHS to DVD there is an initial few seconds ( about 15) when a silent version of what is on the VHS tape appears on the screen. Then the Windows Xp Professional seems to hang. I cannot escape from the programme except by restarting the computer. I have tried several times with different settings to no avail. The Manual which came with the discs is not helpful, and is the same as the manual downloaded from the Arcsoft site. I ) Is there a better manual which can help troubleshoot? II) Is a USB connection sufficient? III) Is there an incompatibility with Windows Xp? R F Doran

SOURCE: Smartdisk Cameramate Videosafe

it was trying to stream data USB while writing DVD, somewhat risky. Try this instead: look for the option to copy all data to hard drive first and then burn DVD from hard drive.

There are machines made just for that task such as the Magnavox DVD recorder. There is a VHS tape deck on one side and a DVD recorder on the other side. You can copy a VHS tape to a DVD and copy a DVD onto a VHS tape as well

I have a grundig gr1000(b) vhs/DVD combo. Is it possible to record from video cassette onto DVD? It doesn't seem to be mentioned in the instruction manual. Thanks for your help.

Yes! You can select to copy from VHS to DVD or DVD to VHS, set the VHS tape ready to play and press pause, then put a blank recordable DVD disk in and then select copy, the options for VHS to DVD or DVD to VHS can be selected and then it will copy, when the tape gets to the end it will turn off itself, if you want to stop earlier you will have to stop it! Hope this helps.
