I have an older stand-alone DVD player which I want to give to my daughter, who only has a laptop (no TV). I bought connectors where the White/Red/Yellow (audio/audio/video) DVD player outputs resolve in a USB. It fits fine in my laptop, but the OS (Win 7 64 Pro) won't recognize it. I tried "Discover Devices," but still it couldn't find it. Any ideas what to do next?

What Operating System are you using on your laptop?

I mis-identified it slightly in my original post. It is Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit.

That is just a cable & not a converter & cable. Kind of misleading. There is no converter controller box between the connection. Windows has no idea what to do with a RCA analog composite signal on the end of a usb connector.  If anything a wrong mistake and you will likely blow out your laptop. This is probably what you're looking for...Here Here is a less cheapy model Hauppauge brand Here.
