Capture Device Is Empty

Question

When I try and do a plug and burn with my Canon HG10 there is no device options in the Capture Device box. I did a search and found a "hot fix" but when I download and try and run it gives me an error to make sure I have Administrative Privilege. Error 2. I have right clicked and used run as administrator but still get the error. HELP!

 

Thanks

 

Tom

Plug & Burn only works with DV tape camcorders. Does your camcorder record to tape?

 

From the Help system:

 

Plug & Burn provides a quick and easy way to capture video from your DV camera directly to a disc. You can capture selected scenes, or the entire video tape.

Plug&Burn is totally overrated and IMHO pretty useless. Its for lazy people who don't want to take the time to create a proper DVD. It's also not very reliable since its trying to capture/render/burn all at the same time - resulting in lots of coasters.

I think that Plug & Burn has a very limited niche but to purchase a $100 editing suite to ignore its features is like buying MS Access Database to make a address book!

 

To my knowledge, it only works with Firewire. If you find software that will do P&B on a USB, let us know.

 

Check with your camcorder manufacture to see if they know of anything that would do that. – it could be done…

It is not for lazy but for people who need to do just what it says. I take a video of my kids soccer game and want to make 16 DVDs I don't need to edit. I want to simply come home, plug it in, and rip it to a DVD then copy the DVDs. I work #$^@ hard and to assume myself or someone else is lazy because we don't do the exact same thing as you is narrow minded. Everything has a purpose or reason, it just may not be yours. To spend money on this program to find out that it does not work is insane.

Your camcorder has two issues: First it connects using USB and second, it records using AVCHD. Even if P&B could use USB, the video would have to be completely re-encoded to MPEG 2 to create a video DVD. Just so you know, AVCHD may create smaller files, but also requires a much more powerful computer to decode/re-encode in real time. The majority of home computers aren't capable.

 

The quickest way for you to create a disc:

Copy the .mp4 or .m2ts (whatever your camcorder uses) from the camcorder to the hard drive in your computer using Windows Exporer.

Open MyDVD and select MyDVD Project -no menu

select all of your files

Click OK.

MyDVD will then ask to convert EACH FILE and where to store the file. Click OK.

 

When the files are added, click the Burn Disc icon.

 

That's about as short as I can make it.

Thanks GG, I appreciate your time and thought in the matter. Guess by saving time (not having to mess with tapes or mini DVDs) I pay for it on the back end.

You may want to check the software that came with the Canon HG10. It may have included something that may work for you. I have the Canon HV20. I was surprised that not much software was really included. Even though my camcorder is miniDV tape and I connect using firewire, I don't think that P&B works with it either because it is high definition. But I'll have to try sometime just to see if it does or doesn't. :)
