I have been sucessful in getting the vhs video trough the easy cap onto the hard drive. However getting the video on the dvd is something else.the file is to long. I tried changing settings on the burn menu twice. once I got a blank dvd the other had video but no sound. Please help with settings! suggestions are greatly desired.I have tried all different formats and realy don't think I know to translate all the bitmap, jepegs,mpegs and various other abbreviations. please help.
Use a program that compresses and converts the files so that they fit on a DVD and can be played on any DVD-player. I use Nero Vision Express 4 (usually included in the later Nero Burning Rom packages), TMPGENC 3 or DVD Flick. Import the avi-file and then export it as DVD-files (vob, bup, ifo) and the burn it on a DVD or let the program convert the file and burn it directly on a DVD. Make sure the program is set to export/burn files to fit the size of a DVD-5 (4.7 GB).
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

no easy way to do this unfortunately. You either need to connect your VCR to a DVD recorder and record it directly onto DVD or use a device such as this http://www.dx.com/p/easycap-usb-video-capture-adapter-5707 to connect your VCR to your computer and record it onto your computer that way.
Perhaps it is a limit of that software? Is it a "Trial" ? I also suggest you use another type of program see if that one will record longer, also it may simply be either or both NOT enough, RAM &/or Hard Drive space. You need HEAPS of memory when doing any Video work. To do stuff such as this you would need at least 4GB RAM and at least 50 - 100GB FREE Hard Drive space.
No you cannot - This is a DVD *PLAYER* / VCR combo - which means it features a DVD player & VHS recorder in one - you cannot record onto DVD - You can however watch a DVD while recording your tv program on the VCR.
I hope this answers your question.
If you want to convert your VHS to DVD you will need to purchase a standalone DVD recorder - I personally do not reocmmend the DVD recorder / VCR combos - or you can use a HDD/DVD recorder which stores recordings on a hard drive and later you can burn them on DVD, they allow editing, more flexible recording options, etc
You can copy VHS tapes that cannot be done on standard equipment. You can buy EZGRABBER to down load VHS tapes to your hard drive, then use a program likePower Produucer to go from your hard drive to a recordable DVD unit if you have one installed in your computer
Sorry I can't answer directly but just wanted to suggest you bought a PVR or personal video recorder that uses a computer-type hard drive.
These devices are a lot less hassle when only short-term storage is needed and any content you want to keep can be recorded later onto hard copy. I still prefer vhs for that as it is possible to edit tapes or cut out bad portions if something goes wrong - not something easy to do if a cd or dvd gets damaged.
There are double layer DVD's that they make which usually have about 2x the memory. check to see if your DVD recorder supports these types of DVD's. You could also just divide your media on to two sides of a double sided DVD (each side has the mirror look and you can record onto both sides)(still the same disc) or you could record on to multiple DVD's (may be inconvenient but is still an option). Also, you could reduce the recording quality just a bit so that it is not noticable when you watch it but it still uses less space on the disk. I would tell you how to do these things but I have no experience with the individual model that you have.
All you have to do is buy a vhs to dvd recorder. They sell those everywhere, like costco, walmart, etc. They keep getting cheaper and cheaper...
They will come with a manual with model specific instructions, but usually its pretty easy. The cassette plays and the device records the video onto the dvd.
They also play vhs and dvds too XD.
Here's a good website: http://hometheater.about.com/od/dvdhardwareandsoftware/tp/dvdvcrrecorders.htm
both are just the same features just to write file from your hard drive. Maybe your point is you want the video from your VHS tapes will transfer to your hard drive. The only way to copy the video from your VHS is you need an external VHS player at the same time it will record the running video to a soft copy.
