    Unable to "Enter Valid Recording Time" (using Dazzle)

    Have a Pinnacle Dazzle. Trying to do a dvd recording from vhs. When I get to the "Start Recording" screen I am required to change the "Select total recording time" box from 0 minutes to however long the vhs tape is. Except I cannot change the recording time from 0 to anything else. Have tried right clicks, left clicks, etc but the box remains "gray" and I cannot enter a time and whenever I click the "Start Recording" box it keeps telling me to "enter a valuid recording time"

    Change the input device to Dazzle instead of Pinnacle File Capture. BTW do you see a preview when you play the camcorder.

    Thanks but Pinnacle File capture is my only option and no, there is no image in the preview window.

    When you plug the Dazzle do you get a notification about device is ready to use, if not make sure that the driver is properly installed.

    I am having the same issue.  I am trying to burn a dvd from a file that is downloaded on my computer.  When I set it at automatic and click on start recording, it tells me please enter valid record time.  It will not allow me to change the time that is already in that box.

    I have the same problem and if I change to Dazzle my entire system locks up and I have to restart the computer.

    My question for both of you is do you have the Dazzle Pinnacle capture device selected and do you have preview?

    I am having the same exact problem and have been calling all kinds of phone numbers but can never speak to anyone....after spending like 5 hours at this and being determined...I have reached this page thankfully.  My options at the point you are all at are: Cyberlink webcam splitter (which simply opens my webcam and I see myself), pinnacle file capture, and webcam scb011ooN.....I have taken on the project to convert all of our family vhs tapes to dvds for an upcoming family reuniion and am way behind schedule with this....please please help...thank you :)

    Re: Unable to "Enter Valid Recording Time" (using Dazzle)

    I purchased the device today, and have the very same problem, i e can't change the recording time. I'd need to enter 250 minutes, to cover a 4 hours VHS tape, bc this is why I bought it. I have 14 tapes, and have to know whether or not there's a way to digitize them with the Dazzle, but I haven't seen any answer containing a solution, although the previous questions were asked last July... Would be very happy for some guidance.
