    I just bought the Roxio Easy Vhs to Dvd Plus 3. Found a bunch of old Vhs tapes and want to convert them to Dvd. I did this years ago but am having a problem now. I can get the VHS tape to show on the screen and it will show that it is recording. The problem is when it asks to put a recordable DVd into the drive, it won't recognize any of my drives. I tried it on two other computers, so its not bad drives, I know this isn't something most of you folks deal with, Just wondering if anyone has any ideas. T.I.A.

    Can't you save it to the hard drive then use another program to burn the files to DVD?

    I have gotten as far as getting it onto the hard drive as an Mpeg2, can also download as Mpeg4,which is the better of the two, lost at this point, instructions vague, how/what do I need at this point to burn to DVD. T.I.A.

    Assuming you want a standard Movie DVD to play on a standalone player, load the mpeg2 in AVStoDVD.

    http://www.videohelp.com/software/AVStoDVD

    On the top menu, click 'Output' and choose 'DVD folder structure'.
    This outputs the standard files required for a DVD movie.
    On the top menu, click 'Preferences' > 'Video' and check the box for 'Keep MPEG2 DVD compliant video'.
    This ensures that if the source is compliant, there will be no re-encoding - means faster processing and maximum quality.

    Once you have the folder you can use the likes of ImgBurn to to burn the folder to a DVD disk.
