Capturing Audio During Video Capture


Wingwiper

Question

I have a Box cersion of 7.5 and the other night I was trying to capture some VHS recordings to my Hard drive. I have been using Inter Video DVD Creator that came with my HP but wahted to be able to use the Roxio pack that I had purchased. I was able to see the video fine but was UNABLE to get the audio. I have an Audigy 2 ZS with Front jacks, I am able to capture the Video thru the front jacks but not the Audio. With my Win Inter Video DVD I am able to cature both Video and Audio thru the front. If I use 7.5 and move the Audio to the rear, I have sound, but I do not wan to go thru the hassle of hooking up audio to the rear jacks when I have Video and Audio in the front. any ideas? I have checked the mixer, the volumn controls etc.

Another problem is I want to capture to a folder on my Second Hard drive, I can select drive D and I get multiple images of the box as I try. I am NOT able to select any folder within Drive D only the Root Directory of D. There seems to be a bug here. I have the November 05 Patch and still no luck. All of my Drivers have the latest patches etc. My computer is only a few months old and all updates have been done, firmware, drivers, patches everythinghas been done.

Thanks in advance.

I have Three Hard drives in my computer and My first HD is ONLY for windows and programs, ALL data is stored on the second and then a mirror image of the second is on the third. I have over 4000 songs on the second that are in Wav format and have been cleaned, edited etc, I don't want to take a chance in lightning striking and me bieng S.O.L.

All drives are petitioned and I have a holding directory where I putr on my music files before I edit them and then they go into their proper folder from there. My computer was meant to be able to have Video and Stereo Audio plugged into the front panel. That was one reason I bought that Sound Card, it works well with all other programs, just NOTT Roxio. I have tried tech support, my Ticket has been sitting unanswered for well over a week.

 

 

 

 

 

It's possible that you're going to have to use the software that came with the computer to capture the video and audio. Either using that software or purchasing cables that you leave permanently attached to the back of the computer for both audio and video might be the easiet solution. Some cards can only use the software included to capture audio and video.

 

The problem with capturing to the second hard drive folder is not normal. Most of us recommend capturing to the main hard drive and then moving the files to the second hard drive if you're having problems. Of course, if the drive is petitioned, that's a different matter.

 

You could try creating a folder on the D drive with Windows Explorer and see if you can then select it. Otherwise, I'd try Roxio Tech Support.

I'm not sure what you mean exactly when you say you have an Audigy 2ZS with front jacks. Is that the Audigy 2ZS external box you are describling ? I am using the Audigy 2ZS basic sound card and am familiar with all of the ports on the card at the rear. I also have a computer case that has ports (located in a 3-1/2" external location) and one of the ports there is an audio port. I have no Video ports however on the front. On my particular computer there are a cables running from these front ports (Audio, Mike, USB and Firewire) including the audio port to the rear of the computer and some are connected to the motherboard. To be able to use the front audio port, I have to plug the audio cable jack that runs from the front to the back through a card slot into the Line In port on the Audigy 2ZS card in the rear.

 

I guess my question is: Are Audigy 2ZS front jacks you relate to, part of the case, connected to the motherboard, or what ? As far as your slave drive and not being able to select anything except the root directory, Im not familiar with what that problem might be.

 

Is this any help or not ? If not, please accept my appology for the reply post.

Thanks for the reply. My computer is an HP Multi Media M7050Y and the Audigy 2ZS has audio Inputs on the front of my computers that are indeed connected internally. I have Firewire, USB, S-Video, Composite Video, and a few other inputs on the front with the Audio. When I used the software that came with the HP, I was able to capture video through the Video and audio inputs on the front of the computer. This was convinient for me adn my Trial time is about up, so I decided to use the Roxio 7.5 that I had purcheased and had been using to capture my LPs and CDs to Hard drive. When I went to the Capture Video section, I am able to see Video but there is NO SOUND, I have gone to all of the sub menus to see if the front panel needed to be activated with the software. NOTHING. When I connected the audio to the rear of the computer and left the Video to the front, It works, But I do NOT want to have to pull the computer out from under the table each and everytime, I have many cables connected to it, I have a Nivia G Force GT Graphics with TV TUner and everything is connected and tucked away, each time I have to drag the computer out to gain access to the back section, something comes unplugged and it is a bit of a hassle.

Why does the FREE TRial Version of Win Intervideo DVD CReator Work thru the front and Not Roxio's software? It has to be something with in the setup of the software but have not been able to locate.

Yes! the section where you can select to pick the directory for the destination files to go to is messed up. I can select Drive D and then I have multiple images of the menu overlaying itself. I have NOT been able to select any Folders with in Drive D and that is for Video and Audio capture, real pain.

Thanks

 

Also how does one change their Username with Roxio????

O.K., I am beginning to see better what your setup looks like. This is only a manual work around so you don't have to keep getting into the back of your computer and most likely messing up some of the cables. That's a mess, I agree. I had this same problem with one of the computers I built and due to the motherboard having no connection for the audio port that was up front, I purchased an extension cable (M/F type) that ran from the rear port on the sound card and up to the front of the computer. And that's where I always plugged in any external audio.

 

Also check the manual for your MB, as some of the connectors and settings for audio is meant for the onboard integrated audio function as opposed to having a dedicated sound card. This can be changed on most computers by settings in the BIOS. (Getting to your BIOS settings can usually be done by clicking on the DEL or ESC key when your computer first starts to boot). The setting in your BIOS might possible be set for using the "Integrated" audio on your motherboard. If that's the case your audio will not be available the way your are trying to get it.

 

 

 

Not sure about changing your User name for this forum as I went to "My Controls" and I didn't see any of the setting on the left side of the screen for changing your User name, Just your "Signature". I guess you could always re-register for this forum and include the User name you want that way. Some of the other Gurus might have the solution to this.

Thanks for the Info Frank, will check the BIOS when I get home, I never thought to look there.

Another problem is I want to capture to a folder on my Second Hard drive, I can select drive D and I get multiple images of the box as I try.

I can understand why you want to be able to use all of the available jacks (ports) you have in the front of your computer. Especially when it works with "other" programs. When you say it works with all other programs except Roxio, have you also been sucessful with "other" programs besides the one that came with the computer sound device ? Like ml suggested, that is some times the problem with propritary devices and their associated programs.

 

I am curious what you found was the setting in your BIOS settings when you checked there. Some time ago I had a similar problem using Creative Audigy 2ZS sound card and went about nuts not being able to use front jacks on my computer until I finally realized I had my BIOS set for the "dedicated" sound from the audio chip on the motherboard.

 

Hang in there as my guess is that Roxio is not the problem. It's probably a setting or hardware problem of some kind. By the way, it sounds like you are using Serial ATA hard drives in a "RAID" configuration with two of them mirrored. Is that right ? If so, you probably know that if the primary HD goes out then the secondary one will loose all it's data also. Something to think about.

 

Good luck man..
