I'm getting really frustrated.


I bought an Easycap Video capture device for my Windows 7 laptop to transfer from VHS to DVD.


It was supplied with no drivers, just a camera viewer to see the pictures live. When the device is plugged in, it recognises it as a USB 2.0 PC Camera and installs the drivers. I'm not sure that these are the right drivers but that is what is installed anyway.


When I open the camera viewer and connect to VHS, it shows up but is very distorted and no sound, almost like it is playing in NTSC instead of PAL.


I have spend the last 48 hours downloading drivers, changing cables etc etc and I cant get it to work. I then ordered a new device from a different vendor but the picture is exactly the same so it must be the drivers or something else!



Can anyone help PLEASE!!!!!!

I had mixed results using those devices to try and record video off of a VHS until I bought this.  Nothing is easier than pressing record.  I used it to record all my parents old movies from SUPER 8 tape to dvd no problem
