How about a few more details...

What older version did you have?

What are you trying to capture?

How?

What is your OS?

Any other Roxio Software on that PC?

You do realize there is not magic "fix" button :huh:

Latest Version. Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus, for PC. This is the first version I've had.

Trying to capture VHS audio and video.from a Panasonic VHS to my hard drive. Tried straight to DVD also. Would prefer to capture to HD first.

Windows 7 Pro. recent updates.

No other Roxio software.

What is the general area of the Magic Fix Button and color???

I think I'll throw the towel on this tommorrow. Not worth the fustration  level for me. I am not familier with Roxio, but I'm sure they'd tell me this is the first time they heard of this.

I can't speak for "Roxio" but we have heard of this for bad house wiring to loose connections!

We would be happy to work through this with you, up to you...

The problem I'm having seems to be typical with the new and improved version and Windows 7. Any thoughts on finding an older version? What are main differences? Where to find.the older one?

The Roxio unit takes your Audio input from your source and presents it to your sound card in your operating system. It does not add or delete or change anything.

I am not saying there is not a problem with the Roxio capture device, but in all my years (9) on this forum I can only record one case, and that was not a audio problem. Noise/screaching/etc can be caused  by various things, bad/loose connections, too high of a input signal overdriving the sound card or input levels  in the sound card set too high (did you check what yours are set at)

Lets try some basic stuff...does the VCR work ok when connected directly to the TV......have you tried another tape...also try using a dvd player as an input source rather than the VCR

The VCR works good at the TV with more than one tape.

I have not tried using a DVD player as a source, but will.

Also please advise on my soundcard levels as you mentioned as above.

Please advise on what I should be using for cable connections as a have a gallon bag full that all look good but.who knows..The player I use has 3 ins, 3 outs white, yellow, red. plus a white yellow red in front of the player.It also has an in and out for a cable connection.

Thanks,
tim

Why don't you tell us how you are connected?
From the player out you should go to the USB device matching the colors.

Would you make a short capture, 10 seconds or so, and post it where we can play it???

A good site (free) we often use is, UpForDown - LINK

Might be a big help to actually Hear what you are hearing ^_^

How long in length have you made your cables from the VCR to the PC USB plugin?
