Question about Pinnacle Dazzle DVD Recorder

When I burn a VHS tape to a DVD i can play it on the computer fine with sound. When I play it on my DVD player hooked to the TV I get no sound. Other DVD's work properly except the ones I burned on the Dazzle.

    I think I have the same problem. I can get a picture and sound while burning but no sound when playing on the tv. It also looks like the speed is a little fast.

    After transferring a program to dvd, the video looks like it's about 1 1/2 times faster than the audio. Very frustrating

How do I convert cassette tapes to CD


Hi Ann,

FIrst off you'll need to connect your cassette player to your computer with either composite cables or a red and white sound cable that is on one end and a single stereo plug on the other side. Once you get that connected, you basically have to play the cassettes to the computer and the computer will record the sound (since you plug the sound in like a speaker to the computer) and then save the file for later burning it on to a CD. You'll need some software that will allow you to capture the sound and record it. Examples are Nero, Windows Media Center, VLC, eSoft's Super, Quick Time Player. and many more. Once you play the cassette completely through, the software you use will have type of formats that you can use to record the music. I would choose AVI as my type. Then once you have the AVI file, then burn it to a CD for playing on a CD player. The burning software (windows comes with one standard, but there are many CD burning software products for free) will convert the AVI file into the CD players format so you can play it on the CD player.


Good Luck

I insalled the software, but I can't get the videos from my camera onto my computer. When I put in the usb, it tells me it could perform faster in a different port but I've tried all my ports. I just want...


I think your PC is drawing attention to the difference between USB 1.1 and USB 2 ports, USB2 being much faster.

It wouldn't do this if you had USB2 ports on your PC.

Now working on the premise that your copying video tape to your PC rather than copying video files to your PC.

Other than rebuilding your PC or buying a new one will USB2 ports, you could

1) If its a laptop, use the firewire port. Just buy a firewire cable.
2) If its deskstop, buy a firewire PCI card (Not much, try ebay). You'll also need a firewire cable.
3) Carry on using the kit that you've already got, its just going to take a lot longer.

A final thought comes to mind, especially if the process is to copy tape to dvd.

I've have friends have no end of problems using these Dazzle and similar products in conjunction with a PC to make a DVD copy. The big issue being lip sync problems.

The way I prefer, and much more reliable is to daisy chain a

Camcorder/VHS recorder to a DVD recorder with a hard drive and finally a TV for monitoring.

Press play on the camcorder/VHS and record on the DVD player.

Once complete, edit on the DVD player and then write to DVD.

Pinnacle S 10.7 DVD plays for for 15 min plus and then image free


Unfortunately I do not know what a prosumer is (do you mean producer?) but what I would do is produce an image file rather than write direct to disc and then use nero or imgburn to burn the disc.(I prefer Imgburn and not just because it is a free open source prog).

Give it a go and get back if the problem remains.

There can be a whole gambit of issues with these Dazzle devices. I hate them. Also friend have tried to copy to PC via firewire from mini DV camcorders. After a video of just a few minutes they run into lipsync problems.

For what its worth, I've managed to copy my VHS home video to DVD without issue and you may already have the equipment.

I hook up my VHS recorder with a DVD recorder which also has a HDD. Daisy chaining it on to a TV to monitor. All with scart leads.

Play the tape, record to the DVD hard drive. Finally edit and dub to DVD.
