It may be that the front ports are USB3.  I've seen USB2 devices that don't work properly in USB3 slots, even though they are supposed to be backward compatible.

I jumped the gun, rather.

 

I now have audio and video. But, sadly, the video judders horizontally (i.e. the picture moves from left to right and back again. I have two VHS recorders, both Sharp VC-MH722HM models and the problem occurs with both machines. I have played the tapes through a TV today and the video plays fine with no juddering whatsoever. I have played five or six different tapes and the problem is consistent with all of them.

hi,

 

since video rendering is a part of my job i wish say few things

 

i haven't read all the posts but i will post some very simple guide on the subject

 

the video player can be connected trough a usb capture device such as the magix vhs to dvd i personally have for a long time now

 

if your video have scart outputs then you need a scart to rca jacks cable (composite video yellow for the video signal, plus left and right jacks red and white for the  audio)

 

if your video support s-video output then you have to follow that connection since it offer higher video quality signal

 

check with your software (i use windows xp movie maker) the settings for video capture pal or ntsc this is a critical point - also if your software support interlace video check it since the vhs video is always interlaced

 

your os must have the necessary video and audio codecs like the k-lite full pack

the blue screen you have during the capture of your video have nothing to do with your connections or with any of your vhs video players !

 

simple steps for capture vhs video and convert to dvd

I have been down so many of the paths and   seen tutorials all of which are packed with glorious information but none come to the real problem faced by even the top end bulders and that's compatability of assembled parts and the associated software.  Getting the hardware to work together can often be frustrating and the programs even more so.  Assembling bare systems and adding components one at a time and a vendors liberal return policy yields workable solutions but were limited to under $5,000.  USD.  Studio equipment starts around $10,000. USD.  My main trouble was getting it all working and doing the complete job, inputs, HDMI, USB, or composite to a card.  Output wasn't essential but burning DVD was.   Editing was done on another unit, suited just for that.  A headache for me is transposing 8 MM home movies projected unto a telecine and recorded on VHSC cam corder.  24 frames a second projected and scanned at composite rates (thirty frames a second).  I had to resort to adding a translucent beaded screen on the telecine, behind the screen to slow the persistence and fill in the blank frames.  Not evident in the final product.  It would cost more money than I want to invest unless I was going to add that to my resume too and put adds out.  Not needed just to recover some 50 year old movies on disintegrating media.  Just need one clean pass.

I'm very grateful to everyone who has tried to hold my hand and help me solve this problem. I've worked on the juddering issue for a good part of two days and I feel now that this is beyond my compass of competence. I'm therefore going to return the kit to the supplier and buy something which appears to have a better pedigree such as this-

 

https://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=Video+2+PC+mkII

 

This has excellent customer reviews and seems to be a lot easier to use than the kit I have at present.

hi,

 

even if you return back to your supplier the item you have bought i continue to say that your problem with the blue screen is because your old usb video capture device driver (not working under newer windows versions)

 

unfortunately those usb video capture drivers are too old since windows xp sp2 (service pack) and they cannot run under windows 7,8 and windows 10

 

telecine was the only method to capture from film (8mm, super 8 and 16mm) and was first released on early seventies

 

it was a very expensive method and only professionals can afford it (tv studios, production studio)

 

https://www.bhphotovideo.com/explora/video/buying-guide/guide-scanning-motion-picture-film

 

a cheaper solution to capture from film was a small screen (a special screen) that you projected your film and with a camera even an old vhs you could record

 

certainly the quality was not the best but those were the days

 

now there some very good film scanners like the follow

 

http://www.moviestuff.tv/moviestuff_home.html

 

top picture quality but unfortunately is out of my budget

 

personally i wanted to buy such as film scanner but there is no business any more for these things

 

you can do some transfers but you cannot cover the price so i stay with my video renders

I did repeat the question to the supplier twice "will this work with Windows 10" before ordering because I shared your doubts about the kit's ability to cope with Windows 10....
