Roxio Video Capture Usb For Mac Synch Problems

Question

I bought what turns out to be the "old style" usb device at Best Buy. My camcorder has an S video out, so I used that connection, plus the two audio cables to connect to the usb device. I set the software to S Video, and digitized my first video. It appeared to work properly, and I proceeded to digitize MANY hours of tape. All the captures were recorded to .mov files, and played back in quicktime. Unfortunately I did not scrutinize those carefully. When I went to create my first movie with editing software, it became apparent that the audio and video are not synched. Off by perhaps 10 seconds.

 

Anybody have any ideas: how this happened? do I have to go back and redigitize hours of tape using a composite setting? Or is this device not capable of doing what it's supposed to do?

 

I'm using a MacPro with 10.6.8, 6 gigs of ram, NVIDIA GeForce CT 120 graphics card.

The software that came with the device, Roxio Video Capture, Version 2.0.1 (134).

 

There is no software named Roxio Video Capture, that I know of.

 

Is it on the Best Buy site?

Choose the medium quality setting for capturing the video and the audio sync issue will be resolved. That setting records as a high-quality h.264 video so it looks every bit as good as the so-called best setting which records using Apple Intermediate Codec, plus it is a more compatible format.
