  1. That I do agree, but it still baffles me how a device is recognized in Windows XP without installing any drivers, works in Windows 10 32Bit OS, but on this system, isn't even showing up as an unknown device. That is what is baffling the heck out of me! As I stated, if the Roxio VHS to DVD 3 uses the same dongle firmware, I might be stuck with another non working piece of hardware. Returning it would be a pain. By the way, thanks for your input so far. Bruce.
  2. Interesting part is I entered my BIOS and seen Legacy support was disabled, figured changing that would work, went back into windows 10, uninstalled everything except for Easy VHS To DVD and put the installation disk back in and choose (Repair) It did it's thing and I rebooted the system. Then I put the USB video capture device in the USB port hoping it would work. Sadly, still no new device showing up and even tried searching for new devices again, the USB device did not show up as an option. I must assume the motherboard BIOS must be ignoring this device for some reason, with these new secure motherboard BIOS firmware, it is probably being blocked or ignored somehow. Bruce.
  3. Sorry for the over-sight to answer your question about other devices in device manager. Here is a screen shot. This is with the Roxio Capture USB device plugged in.
  4. I know I am doing multiple posts here. I want to put emphasis on this package I have is LEGACY, it's not Easy VHS To DVD 3. So far I have tried everything, what confuses me, is to plug the USB device into a computer to which nothing Roxio is installed on and the USB device shows up in Device Manager as ' USB 2861 Device' confuses me as to why it won't show up on this computer. Plugging a thumb drive into the USB port, works, plugging a PS3 controller into the USB port, works. Plugging anything into the same USB port works. Now my USB ports are 3.0, whether that is the issue or not I do not know. All my other computers are 2.0 USB. Now let's say I upgrade to Roxio VHS to DVD 3 package, will that USB device also be stuck on 2.0? I really can not understand why a piece of USB hardware won't work. The problem is not software related, it's hardware related and perhaps the firmware in the USB capture device does not know how to function under USB 3.0
  5. Now here is the folder the program is installed in. I showed the contents of the 64Bit folder (just in case that other folder in my last post is the wrong software.)
  6. Ok I checked a few things out. I found a folder called Video Capture USB below are various screen shots pertaining to that folder. See images below, now here is the contents of the .INI file, the one that tells the program how to install.

RePlugin=Please Re-Plugin the USB device on your computer, otherwise, the USB device maybe can't work well.
  7. Here is my hardware and disk. I did not include the part that has the S-Video, RCA video and L/R audio input ports, that part should not have anything to do with the USB device being recognized.
  8. Ok it appears when attempting to run that program, even as an administrator I get this notice. Also included is a screen shot of my audio properties.
  9. Yes I have tried it in several different USB ports to which work with other USB devices. My device is the one pictured on the left side of your photo, it has a detachable pigtail USB cable that came with it, plugging just the Video Capture USB device without the pigtail into the USB port, still does not work. The service Pack package you linked to, I have already tried because when I clicked your link above, it gave me a file called vhstodvd_sp3_to_88a (1) which indicates it has already, previously been, downloaded and I ran it already, but I tried it again and there was no difference from the first attempt. Here is a screen shot of my device manager with just the USB dongle (Minus the USB pigtail cable extension) in the USB port. It is pressed in as far as it will go. Worked fine with a test on an older Windows XP 32Bit Dell computer USB port. It showed up as 'USB 2861 Device' in XPs device manager, as you can see below no 'USB 2861 Device' listed. (oh, to keep you on track I still have and used the original installation CD that came with my capture device, it installed the software and I entered my valid product key and the software install went flawlessly and loads when executed.) (See my screen shot of my software loaded on screen and the version number below)
  10. I bought a new computer, my old one had Windows 10 32bit, this one is 64bit. I installed the software for build 201B23A from my original installation disk and used my valid product key. The programs Easy VHS to DVD and Sound Editor installed and load no problems. The issue is the USB dongle is not being recognized in device manager, not even as an 'unknown device' it worked fine on my older 32bit Windows 10 OS. I have come here to find out if the problem might be that the dongle is not supported in a 64bit OS such as Windows 10 Home Edition. The device worked fine on my other system and was recognized in both Sound Editor and Easy VHS To DVD programs. Has anyone else had issues with the USB dongle not being recognized once it is placed in a USB port on a 64Bit OS? (As a side note, I quickly plugged the dongle into an old 32Bit Windows XP computer and the device showed up in Device Manager as 'USB 2861 Device'. Plugged it back into my Windows 10 Home 64Bit computer and no new devices showed up in 'Device Manager' Bruce.
  11. Very Good catch!!! I found those settings in the windows registry under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Roxio\VHS\AudioCore\FX\eq10 It shows Rock and then Rock 2 through Rock 5 in the correct order, not like the drop down menu shows, so this answers my question and I figured it was only right I posted back so if anyone ever asks this question, they will know where the user created presets are stored. Many thanks for providing this information. Bruce.
  12. Update, while I had EQ.fxU opened in notepad, I tried the search text feature in notepad and typed the name Rock 2 into the field and clicked search next, it did not find the words Rock 2 anywhere within that file's text wording. So now I'm really confused here. Bruce.
  13. BY The way, be careful when you open that .fxU file, it contains tons of computer code and that code can be broken if you choose to always open that file with notepad or wordpad. Make sure you uncheck "always use this program to open this type of file" Besides computer code, there are words in English in that mass of text jibberish. Bruce.
  14. I tried searching using Windows 7's search bar for Rock 2, Rock 3 etc. but no go, came up with many file names with those numbers in their name, but no files named Rock 2 or Rock 3 etc. Those settings must be saved within a file with a specific name, perhaps in those files ending with the .fxU extension. Oddly enough, if you use windows search and type *.* .fxU I get EQ.fxU as a result. opening that file in notepad shows text that appears to be computer code such as the jibberish listed below.

  15. Thanks for the replies guys. Jim Hardin your screen shots are exactly like my version of Sound Editor, I have the full licensed version of Roxio's VHS to DVD from the disc. Sound editor is located in the directory of Audio Core and is version also called SoundEditVHS.exe From Sonic Solutions. I do see files with an .fxU extension, but those files do not look to be editable. The reason I want to delete the presets I created is because I messed up on the order of the names I used for each one, I named my first preset Rock, the next was Rock 2, Rock 3, The next was misnamed Rock 5, because I thought I had already used Rock 4, now it goes 3 5 then 4 and two presets 3 and 5 were the same with a slight decrease in the master volume in number 5. I am not attempting to delete the presets that were in that drop down list that were set by Roxio, I want to delete 5 and 4 and make it so the list goes 2, 3, 4, and 5 not 2, 3, 5, 4. Resetting the menu does not remove my presets, it only moves the 11 sliders back to the default 0db as shown in the second image in post #4. Sknis, I also have that Parametric Equalizer in my version of Easy VHS To DVD's Sound Editor, but it is located under the Sound Effects drop down menu of my editor and it is also found under the main window under Tools.
