1. "I don't get video or audio in the software, or the software doesn't capture anything."


First, make sure the video capture device installed properly and connected to the computer BEFORE you open the Wizard Application.

Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Device Manager and make sure "USB 2861 Device" is listed under the category Sound, Video, and Game Controllers.

If it is not there, make sure you install the driver off the VHS2DVD Wizard CD (Step #3) before plugging in your device.


2. "When I try to capture video, the software only captures a portion of the tape or the captured audio/video is out of sync."


On the main VHS2DVD Wizard Screen (Capture Video tab), choose "WMV Best Quality" from the Select Profile menu. Then try capturing video again and see if this resolves the issue.



3. I have Windows 7 (32-bit), but the driver will not install, what do I do?

A. Insert the blue Wizard CD and close the auto run menu when it appears. Then, then plug your video capture device.

B. Go to the Start Button and type the words "Device Manager", then click on it when it shows up in your listing.

C. In the device manager (System Control Panel, Device Manager Link), find the USB Capture Device with the Yellow Exclamation mark. Right click on this item and choose Update Driver.

D. Do NOT have Windows find the driver automatically; instead, choose to browse the computer for the best driver.

E. Browse to the VHS2Wizard CD in it and choose the Driver folder.

F. You may get a warning that the driver is not Windows Logo Tested. This is normal; choose to continue the installation anyway.

G. Once the update completes, the device will now appear correctly without a Yellow Exclamation mark.

H. Reboot the computer and the driver will be installed.



4. "My VCR only has one 'audio out' jack. What do I do?"

5. "I get a warning message when installing the driver for the video capture device."


Please click "Continue Anyway" to continue installing the driver.
