To use DVgate software to record AVI files to tape
Do not use DVgate™ software when the connected digital video device is in
Timer Recording mode, as this could produce a malfunction in the device.
You can record only AVI files. MPEG files cannot be recorded.
Avoid recording problems, such as a single frame appearing in multiple
frames, by closing other applications on your system while recording.
You cannot use different audio modes on the same tape. If you have AVI files
that use different audio modes, they cannot be recorded at the same time, but
must be recorded separately.
DVgate software features do not support working with AVI files that are
smaller than 4 MB.
DVgate software does not support hard disk compression.
Video and audio data are not available while you are recording, in order to
maximize recording capabilities.
If DVgate software indicates that frames are dropped, try closing all open
applications, or defragmenting your hard drive.
