Installed the software successfully. Started running the recommended walk-thru with "Wizard". Could not access the "time" button when asked for time. The "start recording" button returns me to the time button that isn't active. What do I do?

Hi lloyd_kin466 I'm not familiar with Pinnacle stuff but in any capture software , you need to customize the capture options . Set the system to PAL or to NTSC , select the entry . If you are reading from a VHS device , select " composite " and not TV ... etc ... It should work unless your software hasn't been correctly installed or is not compatible with your OS .

The blue screen is referred to in the industry as BSOD( blue screen of death ) this is a stop screen that is built into Windows to halt on errors whether its a hardware malfunction or incompatibility or software conflicts. Your Dazzle could be faulty or the software is causing the halt screen. This is a major problem with Vista. I have changed most of my computers from Vista back to XP because my Dazzle and new video cam won't run on Vista but runs excellent on the same machine once switched over to XP. Good luck and fell free to Google BSOD for more info.
Dazzle DVD for windows can used only if you are windows system but for mac there is no particular driver or even the software to download. The product for MAC is Pinnacle video capture for mac which is the software is already included.
Are you on Windows? What version (XP, 98, Vista, etc?) What file system are you using (right click on the drive in My Computer and select Properties)
If you are using FAT32, there is a built in limit to 2GB files. If you are finding that your capture is hitting 2GB (=103min?) and then crashing, this may be your problem. Also, consult the capture settings in the Dazzle software and ensure no file size or running time limitation is selected there.
On the start up of the instant DVD recorder program, you can either use the "let the wizard guide you" or "advance mode"
1. Select source: you should select the options:
Video standard NTSC (Because this is the default in our region) Video composite - if you are using RCA (red, yellow and white cables) S-video - if you are using the cable with several pins in it.
2. Select Burner You should select the options: Hard disc folder - if you will be saving the content in your hard drive, the format of this files are DVD such as VOB and IFO etc. TSST - _ _ _ _ - if you will selecting your DVD drive.
(If you have selected your DVD Burner and you cannot click "next" to proceed to the Third option, this means that your DVD drive is not able to burn a DVD)
3. Select menus It must be NO
4. Recording select total recording time (make sure that dazzle is selected in the "select source" to set the total recording time)
