Question

I am trying to use the Roxio Video Capture USB with Creator 2009 Special Edition 111B10E to capture video output from a VHS player with red white and yellow RCA connectors. The capture starts to work fine and after about 20 seconds everything freezes. I've tried it several times with varying lengths of time but always ends in failure and frozen computer.

Toshiba Satelite XP Pro SP3 1.37 GB Ram Pentium 4 3.33GHz

What am I doing wrong? What is a clean install?

Thanks

Is this a laptop? If a laptop, are you using external power, not the battery? A onboard video chip or deticated video card? Your processor is a "Pentium 4 3.33GHz" correct? How much free space do you have on the hard drive?

It's a laptop running on power with 59.4GB on internal HD and 222GB on external HD

The only video or graphic adapter I can find is ATI Mobility Radeon 9000 IGP. I did a driver update check and it said no newer available.

 

The DirectX update instructions scare me! How do I find out what version I have now?

Optimized Software Support Microsoft DirectX 8.1 and OpenGL® drivers Unified driver support for all Radeon discrete and integrated graphics products

 

Minimum system requirements for C 2009 is a Direct 9 compatible chip / card.

 

"Pentium 4 3.33GHz" correct?

 

Is the above correct?

I'll try to do all of the above and let you know how it turns out.

Thanks for the suggestions.

 

 

I see on the system requirements that DirectX 9 compatible graphics card is required. How do I determine that or which version of DirectX I have?

We also have a fairly new HP laptop with Vista Entertainment on it perhaps I should try that one?

To find an updated driver, for your graphics chip, first go to Toshiba's website, and see if they have one. If not, go to ATI's (AMD) site, and see if they have one.

 

Windows Update is not the place to go, looking for new drivers.

In XP, start, run, type in Dxdiag , click ok.

Looking at the specs on this pc I would uninstall Roxio and move it to the newer one with Vista you mentioned.

I followed all the instructions to completely remove Roxio Creator 2009 from the Toshiba machine. The Vista HP machine had DirectX 10 installed. I gave up on the Toshiba and installed the Creator 2009 and Capture USB software on the Vista machine and it worked perfectly.

Thanks for all your help!

I didn't give any suggestions to help you in this thread and your problem, but I would like to say "KUDOS" to you for following each of the posted suggestions given. Most users don't ! And glad you have everything working right now !!
