I hope someone on here can help me.

I have Easy VHS to DVD  build no: 201B23A ENU

I have a Toshiba laptop with Vista.

I cannot get any video picture or audio up in my preview screen. I only have "No Video Signal".

I have connected the audio cable and s-video cables to my VHS player and computer, but nothing.

Can anyone help me shed some light?

Thanks,

Stacy

Look and see if the drivers are installed correctly in Device manager with the USB Device plugged in.

Try a composite video instead of S-Video it's the yellow one.

Have you tried all USB ports on the Toshiba laptop and are they all enabled?

Thank you both. I will try and check in device manager today and see if that's any use.

I had used a composite cable before but that didn't work.

Jim, what do you mean by scart issues?

I have since tried checking the drivers, which acording to the picture you supplied on here, is right - they are both installed.

I have tried again, and now have a blue DVD image appearing on the preview screen instead of "No Video Signal", but there is still no video image or audio when I try and play the video on my player? Any ideas on this?

Try a different S Video cable or component 'white red audio' 'yellow video' and try a DVD player as the source. See if we can get a signal?

You can't use the S-video jack for VCR mode (page 8 in Manual), its only DVD mode, that why you were getting the blue screen you mentioned earlier.

You will have to use the Scart output (AV 2) (page 12)

Here is one example  http://www.amazon.co...O/dp/B0017M16WG

Ok, that has me stumped then :( Can you perhaps shed any light on what I need to use in that case - should I be using a scart adaptor instead?

You can use either one of the 2 suggested in post 17 or you can get a scart adaptor  http://www.amazon.com/Lindy-35570-SCART-Adaptor-Switch/dp/B00008A956   then use the cable that you have, its up to you.

You would connect AV2 scart jack on the VCR, then plug the other end into your Roxio unit.
