Question about Pinnacle Dazzle DVD Recorder

Recording stops within 10 minutes

I have Dazzle setup on my Vista laptop. Recording starts and about 10 minutes or so into it the recording stops and the message disk finished appears. What do I need to do? The last menu screen tells me that I can record up to 133 minutes. Thanks...

Hi G-DyBiec

If the video capture automatically stops capturing at approximately 18 minutes (17 minutes and 55 seconds), then most likely the drive that is being capture to, is formated using Microsoft's FAT32 file system. Microsoft's FAT32 file system has a maxium file size of 4 GigaBytes (4 GB), which equates to a DV video clip of nearly 18 minutes. (18 minutes = 1080 seconds, @ a data rate of 3.6 MB/sec is approximately 4GB). So for hard drives that are formatted using FAT32, this behavior is normal. This is not a limitation of Studio..

To see what file system your hard drive uses do the following:

1. Right click on the Start button and choose Explore
2. Under My Computer, locate and highlight the drive you are capturing to
3. Right click and select Properites
4. On the General tab, towards the top, it will say "File System". It will be listed as either FAT32 or NTFS.

There are a few solutions if your drives are formatted using FAT32:

  1. Convert your FAT32 hard drive to NTFS *
  2. If you can copy any important data from this drive to other drives, it may be faster to re-format the FAT32 drive using the NTFS file system. **
  3. You can do multiple 18 minute captures and string them together in the Edit mode of Studio.
    • Since the first 18 minutes is already captured, rewind the camcorder or VCR to 5 - 10 seconds before the initial capture stopped (which can be edited out later in Studio).
    • Start a new capture to a new file name.
    • Repeat this process until all the desired video is captured from the tape.
    • After all the files have been captured, go to Edit and assemble the captured files from the Album to the timeline in the order you desire.
This is a manual method to workaround Microsoft's FAT32 file system and if this is too time intensive for your needs, then steps 1 and 2 above may be more suitable and should be considered.
* Note: If you need assistance with step 1 above, go to the Microsoft web site at http://www.microsoft.com/ and search on "convert FAT32 to NTFS".
** Note: If you need assistance with step 2 above, go to the Microsoft web site at http://www.microsoft.com/ and search on "how to format a drive in XP".

NOTE: Microsoft's NTFS file system is only supported on Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Vista. NTFS support a file size of 4 TB (terra bytes), which is larger than any current consumer hard drive capacity, so if NTFS is used, the capture file size will only be limited by the size of the hard drive.

I cannot play burned dvd's from this system in other dvd players becahse I cannot finalize the dvd. How do I finalize?


The recording may have used all the media on the disk because you let it run until it was full.
Now, there is no room to finalize the disk.

Play this back on the machine where it was recorded while recording it to another DVD recorder..
This time, BE THERE to stop the recording.
Set the recorder to a speed that leaves at least 10 minutes extra space for finalization.

Hi and Welcome to fixya!

Generating disc menu comes up if you choose yes under step number 3 and the menu and chapters automatic place after the recording is done. Actully it takes a long time to finished before the recording is finished. I suggest to you to for the next time around just click no for the dvd menu.

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.

Can not record dvd movie that is more than 103 minutes in length?


The solution is the quality settings on the DVD settings. On a 4.7Gb disk, 279 minutes at 24% quality, down to 70 minutes at best quality. Also, more will fit on the 8.5Gb DL disks. You can also use automatic quality, that will fit the video that you have compiled onto a disk, using the highest quality setting that will allow it to fit. An alternate method is to 'burn' to an image file on the HD, then use a program like 'DVDShrink' to fit on the disk.

Try using 8x and lower DVDs and -R ones; try cleaning with CD cleaning disk and then try recording a few min again. If that doesn't help try unplugging and waiting about 30min then put in disk that was previously recorded and go to last item and play it to end (if 2hr long skip to last skip and then play until it finishes) - now try just recording a few min using the manual DVD record button and see if error comes up again - usually this unplugging somehow resets everything. Hope this helps ya'll.
