Select Video Device Failed

Question

My Roxio Game capture was working fine until today.

 

Whenever I start up the program I get this error, which leaves me unable to record any gameplay, or even view it from my computer.

 

Here is a screenshot of the error.

I've tried repairing the program, uninstalling and reinstalling the program, unplugging and plugging in the cables, and none of these solutions have helped.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi Bwandin,

 

Remove ALL CODECS and CODEC PACKS installed (K-lite, FFDshow, CCCP...). Remove RGC software.

 

After this, reboot and use this tutorial. If work, reinstall RGC software.

How do you find the Codec packs and remove them?

 

Install CCLEANER. RUN go to TOOLS and remove all codec packs on your PC.

I have this same problem. I open it up, hit capture, and it says no signal and a popup says "select video device failed".

It just was working last week, what the heck?

 

I have installed CCeaner and don't see any codec packs in the uninstall section.

Please help. Thanks

Guys,

 

Please, test record wit other software.

If not work, check:

- Windows Update (all).

 

Optional things:

 

- Change USB cable

- Disable antivirus

- Disable DEP

Try & reply.

Hi MidgetNinja,

 

Your drivers are full installed?

 

Please send to screenshot from Device Manager.

 

This error is DirectX related common. Update this??

Your desktop switch to 16bit colors (Basic theme) ?? If YES, its a driver video card error.

Please start you own thread. One of the posters was banned for giving bad advice so we don't know exctly what you are referring to.

 

Please upgrade to SP1 (here) and if you are still having problems, come back with your new thread.
