Question about Pinnacle Dazzle DVD Recorder

1 Answer

Losing Audio Halfway Through Recording

I am using the Dazzle DVD Recorder, just out of the package. So far today, out of my four attempts, I've only managed to record one DVD from a VHS successfully. After recording that DVD, I tried to record another DVD from another VHS, and the Dazzle DVD Recorder seemed to freeze up while "generating disc menu". The progress counter on this task climbed to 40 minutes before I gave up, closed the recorder, and restarted my computer. I decided to attempt to record the same VHS again, so I popped a new DVD into my burner, and started recording again. This time, about halfway through, the audio died, though the video was still recording. I tried all of the cords and I even stopped and started the VHS, but I could not revive the audio. So, I clicked "Stop Recording" and let Dazzle DVD Recorder finish up. The DVD is playable in my DVD player, but loses sound at the same point as I saw while recording. In one last ditch effort to record this VHS, I popped in a new DVD and started recording. The audio worked perfectly as soon as I began the new recording, but this time, the audio failed about 3/4s of the way through.

I am extremely frustrated, and would love some suggestions. I am disappointed about the expense of this DVD Recorder which is, at best, hit or miss when it comes to recording videos, and the DVD+Rs I have lost.

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.

Check your audio device under device manager. By locate this check one.

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. After you restarting the computer make sure that new hardware found message coming out. After you did that open again your IDVDR or Pinnacle Studio program and then check if the same problem.

I have tried pinnacle recording equipment. It works once in a year. You must have a computer with USN 2.0 and higher for it to work. It won't work with USB lower that 2.0. Return it before it is too late.

I have my dazzle connected properly but when i go into windows movie maker it records the sound of my television but there is no picture?


Hi and Welcome to Fixya,

Did you mean you are recording video and audio using your Television set? I'm afraid that dazzle is not design to used if for capturing or even capturing using Windows Movie maker. Because dazzle device is design to used for Pinnacle Studio program and Instant DVD recorder program only, It is not supported to used for both of them. That is the reason why there is no Picture while recording.

Pinnale Dazzle DVD recorder doesn't recognize VCR


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)

Windows Movie Maker


A lot of times Dazzle provides a calibration program for video and sound. See if you can run that.

There usually is a seperate audio capture control. If you go to your sound mixer and check the recording settings, is the audio capture from the Dazzle selected?
