Re: Recording of analog video to Disc

I'm not sure what you mean by your version 4.40W. Please elaborate on that.

I've seen a number of people who capture analog video and then simply burn the file to a DVD. They did not realize that this will not create a playable DVD. To create a playable DVD requires the video to be in a specific format and to be in a specific directory structure on the DVD. There are plenty of software packages out there that will take video files and transcode them to DVD format then burn them to the DVD in the right way.

One nice, easy to use, software package that does this called ConvertXtoDVD. You can download and use it for free, but I believe the free copy leaves a watermark on the video.

I hope this helps you. If you have more questions please give us more information on what the version 4.40W is.

It's possible your drives firmware is to old and doesn't support the type of discs your attempting to burn the videos to.
If your using a 16x dvd try using an 8x or even a 2x and see if these work.
If they do, find out your drives manufacturer and current firmware and see if there is an update you can do to the firmware via the internet.
