analog VHS to DVD

I just got a capture card (Neo DVD standard).I have a couple of questions:
My volume controls are all the way up,I can see the video and hear it from my PC but when it is transferred to DVD,I don't get the audio.Why is this?I am using an Audigy sound card.I have the VHS video out to the input of the capture card and am using the audio out of the VHS to the audio line in on the Audigy.Also it only records part of the movie saying I don't have enough space on the DVD??Do I have to manually compress the video and if so,how?Thank you

DVD Shrink

I'm not sure about your specific problem with audio, but I do know that you can use software like DVD Shrink to fit your video onto a single DVD disc.

The audio problem probably stems from the Audigy's record

setting. There are seperate controls for playback and record. You must tell it what source you want to record. On a windows system, these controls are accessed via the control panel using the Sound and Audio Devices option. This will bring up Sounds and Audio Devices Properties.

You should now see a menu with tabs. The volume tab has an Advanced... button. Click on it. This will bring you to the device volume controls, but you will probably be looking at the playback controls. Click on Options -> properties. Then click on recording and OK. You will then see the record controls. Click on line in and adjust the volume.
