Assuming you have a Video Card that can convert Analog input to Digital you will probably have to use the capture software that came with that card.

I have a video card that converts, yes. 7 says it will capture analog, so why won't it do it?

Because many card manufactures use their custom software to make up for the non-compliance of their hardware…

 

EMC Capture was written assuming that the input device fully complies with Windows Standards for input. Many do not and it would be an absolute nightmare trying to address every card that comes along!

Even though EMC 7 cannot capture the video, you should be able to use VideoWave to edit the video that you capture with the other software.

 

Just make certain that you know where the video is stored on your computer, then you can add the video in the Media Selector portion of VideoWave.

 

If you have problems, please let us know.

Tried using Windows to capture, does capture video but no sound.

I'm fairly certain that HP would have included software to capture the video from the capture card. However, I don't know what it's called.

 

You probably have a manual that came with the computer and contains the answer. If it's not in a printed manual, it will be stored on your computer.

 

Also the HP website Support seems to have instructions on how to do many common tasks. http://h20180.www2.hp.com/apps/Nav?h_paget...ng=en&cc=us

 

If you cannot find the solutions there, please give more information about your HP model number and I'll see if I can find the info.

Double check to make sure the Audio (white & red) is connected to a input connection! Then check to make sure your PC has that connection turned on for capture!

 

In your original post you did mention a DVD Recorder… If all else fails, you could record with that onto DVD RW media then import from that. The media would have to be formatted to DV and not VR. Dash media would have to Finalized in the Recorder before using it in your PC.
