I have a Dazzle DVD Recorder but don't know what to put in the "recording time" field. I want to record a full 120 minute VHS tape but won't let me enter 120.

    I can't even do 10 minutes. It keeps saying "Please enter a valid record time" each time I try to start.

It is becuase the dazzle device is not selected as your video source. Please try to go back to step number 1 then click the box says pinnacle file capture then select the dazzle then try it again. :-)

I had this same issue when trying to record direct to DVD, 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.

ON RECORDING DVD FROM TAPE THE PICTURE ON MY COMPUTER SC REEN IS RUNNING JERKY.THEN WHEN THE DVD HAS COPIED THE VIDEO ON PLAYBCK THE MUSIC IS OUT OF TIME WITH THE FILM TIME ITS REALY THE CYNCRONISATION IS...


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.

I am running on a Dell XPS and my dazzle dvd recorder wont work.


Hi and Welcome to fixya!

I suggest to you to double click on Instant DVD Recorder Icon and choose go directly to Advance mode. Click next. On step number 1 click the pull down arrow and choose dazzle DVC 100. Click on options and choose video input. If your cable connection is the yellow red and white cable then choose Video composite, If S-video cable then choose Video S-video. If you have a VHS player click VHS input and click okay.
Next when everything is done turn your camcorder,vhs,vcr and then hit the play button.

That is the time that the video image is showing to the preview screen of the computer. Still not showing disconnect the dazzle device and place to another usb port.

If your dazzle device is not showing under step number one, you need to download and install the driver to Pinnacle Website.

Pinnace Instant DVD Recorder will not let me record more than 107 minutes even though I choose the lower resolution. Is there a way I can get all 120 minutes from my VHS camcorder onto DVD with Pinnacle?


The maximum number of minutes that IDVDR can hold is 103 mins only. You can put more than 107 mins if you used hardisk folder then you can used nero to burn it to your dvd disc.

Dazzle will only rcord 103 minutes and movies are 120


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.
