  • DVD won't capture to Edius

    I've been through the steps described here to try to get a DVD that I made with Edius 5 to capture to the bin but all I end up with is a jammed computer. At least the mouse pointer still moves.

    I get the message that the file is successfully saved and the disc in the drive never stops spinning. I can only play a small random section of the file however it will only play while the disc is in the drive.

    I have clicked and unclicked PTS in plugin settings.

    I don't know where to find 'analogue capture from DVD player'.

    Once I remove the disc then I get a full jam and i have to shut the computer down via the main switch.

    go to settings menu of DVD Capture and see where it stores the files, you can change the path

    note: if the original DVD was made with open GOP, expect problems

      Worst case scenario, if the disc capture utility fails to do it you could play it out on a DVD player and capture it, you will of course loose some quality but it's always better than nothing.
      Did it fail while using program capture ? You could also try to use disc capture in chapter mode and try one or a few at the time :)

      as Anton stated above, open GOP but also vbr, extreme full disc, bad quality writers ( while burning and or writing) and too high burn speeds can cause capture isues.

      P.s you could try to capture on a different system.

        Thanks for the help. I'll have a look and see what I come up with.

        The very first time I tried this method of dropping DVD content into the bin it worked perfectly. I don't know what has happened since.

        I will try that first one again to see if it still works.
