Roxio Video Capture Usb - How Does This Work?

Question

Hello,

 

Didn't know where to post this.....I was looking at the Roxio Video Capture USB and could not find any documentation. How is this supposed to work? I'm not really interested in creating any fancy DVD's, I just need a means to get old VHS to DVD.

 

After reading a few posts, do I need additional software? If so, what would be the recommendation?

 

 

Thanks

The Roxio Video Capture USB is a piece of hardware, an Analog to Digital Converter specifically. Like all hardware it will do absolutely nothing unless there is some software to take advantage of it!

 

Then there is Easy VHS to DVD which is the hardware device and the software needed to use, edit your capture and Author a DVD Movie! It does nothing else, can't copy disc to disc or do any Data files but is a complete Video and slightly less complete Audio, turn key package!

 

If you already have a good software package with a capture program you can get by with just the hardware… Users of Roxio Suites can get by with just the Device. But the capture software has to be able to capture from a USB device... Widnwos Movie Maker in XP can, but the same program in Vista can not!

Thanks for the reply. Would "Easy VHS to DVD" be all I need to get my VHS to DVD?

 

Thanks

Yes!

 

I think it is a nifty little program for the price! I also have the full Creator 2009 Ultimate but got V2D just to run it through the wringer and see what was in the box… Really impressed with it!

 

Now you can't have those 2 installed at the same time so I have another old PC just used for testing.

 

But even if you decided you want to go with a full version and delete the V2D software you still can use the Capture device and it only cost you $60!!!

 

My other A/D Converter cost me $186 in 2003 and is no longer produced or supported. So for me, this was a Win, Win, Win deal!
