What is the make/model of the VCR? Have you read the Manual on how to hook up the components?

As far as I know there are no settings that will give you the defaults you want. THe Cyberlink of course appears first because the drop down list displays the imaging devices alphabetically. The same for the video output format. You can drop the Cyberlink WebCam from the list by disabling it via the Device Manager/Imaging Devices. It will save you one big mouse click
You cannot transfer the Roxio program from one computer to another, it has to be a complete new install. That means you have to use the original install program/files and have the serial number handy when installing on the new computer

Exactly what are you playing when you get the "split" images. Of course NXT does not recognize the "Slideshow" folder as playable.
