    it closed the session and ejected the disk. Is there a owners information on the dazzle. Maybe in a pif file. I am running windows vista.

    I found a document on the Pinnacle site that has a fairly extensive set of checks to perform to try to resolve this issue: http://www.pinnaclesys.com/PublicSite/us... Surprisingly enough, I could not find any kind of downloadable manuals for any Pinnacle products!



    Hope this helps.

    When you burned the disc, did your burner close the session or leave it open for multi-session recording? Computers can deal with open multi-session discs, DVD and CD players cannot.

At this case there might some applications or programs that use the dvd burner. I mean ( nero, roxio or others)

If you don't mind you can try the steps below to isolate the case.

Then try it again.

If the problem occurs try to update the firmware of your dvd burner.

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.

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.

My dazzle has compasite cable my old vcr does not what to do?


Hi,

Pretty common situation. You can either just use one connector (audio) and record it as the left or right. If they are home video - they are most likely mono anyway. If they are stereo takes (purchased movies) - you might consider borrrowing a stereo VCR to provide two channel output. Since everyone is going to Digital - many people are giving away older TVs with built in VCR function. I use Dazzel for this alot - it's handy to have a VCR with a good remote for play, stop, pause and FF and RW.

Losing Audio Halfway Through Recording


The audio failure sounds more like a VHS player failure than a DVD software/recorder failure. Both audio and video are transferred at the same time to the DVD, and as long as the DVD recorder is working, that's really all there is. I would check the VHS player and confirm that the sound actually works all the way through.

Dvd recording using a pc


The product you need is called the Pinaccle Dazzle - it is basically a red/white/yellow composite to USB connector - it also comes with software for capturing your videos in DVD format on your computer (or you can record directly to a DVD disc inserted in yuor computer). I purchased mine at Best Buy, but it is available in a lot of places. It works great, and I have been busily converting those old VHS's to my PC, and then from PC to DVD.

Good luck!
