Cannot Capture Using Dazzle And Media 8

In my case, I must unplug the webcam before using the slide scanner which does have its own power. Even though I am not using the webcam, it still draws power. I was just using this as an example that something on the OP's machine could be interferring with the Dazzle electrically causing it not to work properly. Unplugging ALL devices would insure that the Dazzle is getting the power it needs. We won't know until the that person reposts what they have tried.

:) I don't know if this will help but I have a dazzle converter too. I had the same problem so I tried plugging it into a different usb slot on my computer and then the program recognized it. I am still having trouble with capture but at least the program knows it is there. I tried using the dazzle software to capture but mine is for video and captures as an avi file and I want a wav. Hopefully, you won't have the same problem I have. If there is anyone out there that can help --- Please!!! :huh:

If you're Dazzle shows up as both a Video Capture device, and an Audio device, then you should be able to use LP & Tape Assistant or Sound Editor to capture with it. Select the Dazzle Audio device as the source in either program, and start playing your audio. If you see the level indicators moving, indicating a signal, then you should be able to capture as a .WAV file.

 

It'll depend on just how the drivers for the Dazzle work.

Media 8 does not list my Dazzle dvc150 in the pull down window for me to capture video from. I have XP and device manager and Belarc does recognize it. Help me.. Thanks.

 

As mentioned in the other post, try another USB port. Also the Dazzle draws power from the USB. If you have any other device plugged into the same hub, it could prevent the Dazzle from getting the power it needs. For example, I have two USB ports on the front and 4 on the back of my computer. I also have a USB2 webcam that uses the port for power. I can't have the webcam plugged in and my USB slide scanner at the same time.

 

Unplug ALL USB devices. Plug in the Dazzle and see if it works. If it does, then plug the other devices in one at a time to see which one may be causing the power drain.

"Unplug ALL USB devices" - just curious if powering off of USB device or unplugging its power supply is enough.

I would suggest that unplugging the power supply would not be enough. Powering it off may do it. To be certain... unplug it. There's no way it can draw power from the USB port at that point.

AVI is a video file, and that is what you will get when you capture from a video camera through the Dazzle card.

 

A .wav file is a sound file and you should be using Audio Capture, through your sound card, to capture.
