I am sorry to read your â€œI dont think i will somehow get to the bottom of this, anything could be responsibleâ€ response. I fully believe that your problem is that when you record your DVDs that you are inducing Write Errors. I believe this is caused by the poor quality of blank DVD media you are using. This can be easily and quickly confirmed by simply checking you problematic DVD with DVDInfo Pro for CRC Reads Error as detailed in my previous Forum posting in this thread. If DVDInfo Pro confirms CRC Error acquire top of line quality DVD media and all you problems are corrected/cured. Nothing mysterious or difficult.
I personally routinely convert old classic VHS VCR Video Tapes I purchase at local flea markets to DVD. I can assure you that I donâ€™t have any of the problems you are experiencing.
I use a JVC HR-5290IU VCR and output to a DataVideo Dac-100 Analog/DV converter to my computer hard drive. Then use TMPGEnc DVD Author to author to the DVD format and CloneDVD to compress to DVD-R size and record to DVD-R media. The whole VHS VCR Video Tape to DVD conversion takes approximately 3 1/2 hours at the most.. The finished DVD plays flawlessly in all my stand-alone desktop payers. I can make back up copies of these VHS VCR Tape to DVD conversions without any problems.
If you are doing VHS VCR Video Tape to DVD conversion there is absolutely no reason to be using the AnyDVD or DVD Decryptor software programs. Your timebase corrector/enhancer takes care of any encryption copy protection contained on the VHS VCR Video Tape.
