I am recording (or trying to record) from my PC on to a VCR. When I play the VCR tape back the sound is OK but I am not getting any picture – just a black screen. I have tried WIN-DVD7, WMP 10 and Creative Media Player to play the video files on my PC, all with the same result. When recording to the VCR, if I put the relevant video player in ‘restore down’ mode (i.e so that some of the desktop also appears on the monitor screen) the VCR does record my PC desktop together with the video player’s skin (and my cursor movements if I move the mouse around), but still a black video player screen! Can anyone suggest why this is and what I can do to remedy it? I am not playing copyright restricted material; I'm running XP Home and have a Radeon 9200SE video card.
