I'm having a problem importing video from a VHS recorder/player.  Video showed in the Roxio screen once, but never again.  Recorded one tape, now doesn't work.  Dell chat (for hours) is no help. System: Roxio Video Wave Movie Creator 1.6.676.0.  Serial xxxxxxxxxx, driver version 1.35.00.  Windows XP Home, Pentium 4, 2.8GHz. : NVidea GeForce 5200.  Plenty of disk space, all other programs disabled, composite cables all connected properly, etc.  Uninstalled/reinstalled several times.  

Also - when importing from a Hi-8 camcorder, it all works, but I can't hear any sound when importing!  

Can you advise?  Thanks.

Jim

It doesn't work otherwise you would have sound rolleyes.gif
What is you capture device?
Is that a digital camcorder? If yes, are you connected using a Firewire connection? USB connection does not work

No, Hi-8 is analog.  My capture devices include a breakout box from Dell (by EMuzed, now HP), and the NVidea GeForce 5200 video card.  I DO have sound on the recording, just not in the process while I'm doing it.  When I'm recording live music scenes, I have to watch to see when the song ends... rolleyes.gif

I don't think that the sound preview works when using Movie Creator.   If my memory is correct, that was done to improve capture because when Movie Creator came out the computer CPU's were much slower than today's computers.  But the sound was imported as you've found out in the captured files.

Your best capture will probably be through the video card.

Importing from VCRs can be tricky.    Are you importing through the Dell 'black box'?   I seem to recall that there were updated drivers on the Dell website and/or specific instructions on how to get those to work properly.
