Everything that I have burned so far plays in fast


Hi and welcome to Fixyah,

When it comes for that kind problem you need to uninstall/reinstall your Pinnacle Instant DVD Recorder and then after that is connect your dazzle device to another USB port and then Click on Start>Control panel>system>hardware>device manager>sound and video games controller> right click on video capture device and uninstall it. Restart your computer.

Try again and then let me know what happen.

Total recording time window won't work


I had this same issue when trying to record direct to DVD with 2.5, and could not solve it. Then, I finally ran through the wizard, and it indicated the maximum length for each level of video quality (DVD HQ, DVD LP, DVD SP, etc) - something to the effect of "At this quality, your device can record XXX minutes of video".

Once I set it to a quality level that exceeded the length I needed, I was able to proceed without any problem.

Sound


Digital cameras don't record sound. You would need to either add your own sound with video editing software or record the video with a camcorder.

The sound dosen't match the video when I use my dazzle.


You can try also this steps to isolate the case,


a. Antivirus, antispam, antispyware constantly scan your harddrives and can slow down the processor a lot during render or burning.Disabling these improves the system speed and efficiency radically.

b. Firewalls constantly turned on when internet is active can slow Studio because it uses MySQL server file in windows and is an important file for Studio 11. If both programs are running at the same time, they rob one another of valuable resources thus depriving each of successful operation.

c.When internet is active, Windows is constantly updating itself via automatic updates. And as we all know, downloading can slow system performance whereas automatic updates not only downloads but also installs components in the background. Thus seriously slowing system performance very much.

3. Update firmware for your DVD burner. Now this may sound ridiculous when you just bought it but it is common knowledge that when hardware is manufactured, they come with drivers that are almost relative to the manufacturing date, and these components are usually assembled into computer workstations months after or even longer.

4.Uninstall the following : Nero, Roxio or Sonic. Though Pinnacle has nothing against the companies or softwares mentioned, they do have conflicts when installed on the same computer. All the mentioned softwares have almost the exact programming language that Studio's burning engine has and if you have all of them installed, conflicts arise due to the fact that the computer gets confused as to which program is which, in turn the computer recognizes the command as coming from only one software and thus limits it's capabilities and processes.

At Step 4 of the installation, each time I hit "Start Recording," I get a pop-up message that says "Please enter a valid record time." But, it will not let me enter a time into the box.


it is becuase the dazzle capture device is not selected as your video source. Please try to go back to step number 1 select video source . Make sure that pinnacle file capture is not selected but the dazzle is selected then try it again.
