Uploading VHS Home Movies Using USB adaptor


marinerfreek

Question

I have a pretty new VCR and am trying to upload some VHS home movies to burn to DVD. I have brand new Roxio Creator 2010 with the VHS USB video adapter on my laptop. I hook up the VHS player as described with the red, white and yellow AV cable and am still getting a "No Signal" red text error when trying to upload using video capture and plug and burn (I've tried both). What am I doing wrong? I had an older version of Roxio on another computer and the only reason I bought the 2010 version was the VHS conversion adapter. ANYONE???

 

I am running Windows Vista on an only 1 year old laptop that has plenty of hard drive space.

Number 12 in my signature, Clean install instructions for Creator 2009 & 2010 on Windows 7 and Vista...

I've never had Roxio on my new Dell Studio laptop. I have Roxio 2009 on my office computer not my laptop. Purchased 2010 for my laptop because of the VHS converter. Should I still remove it from my laptop and re-install it?

Look through this post, especially the Driver Details and Device manager, does yours look the same when the USB Device is plugged in? Also check the USB connection settings...

Yes, everything with the USB is working exactly like you stated. I do not have the add on program Easy VHS to DVD. I just have Roxio Creator 2010 Special Edition which is suppose to support the USB.

 

Any other ideas?

I understand you don't have Easy VHS to DVD just Roxio Creator 2010 Special Edition w/USB Device..

 

If the drivers show in Device manager like you say it should be working.

 

Where do you have the USB Device plugged in, to a rear USB 2.0 port, no USB Hub or extension?

 

The Device is supported so the wires connecting it aren't pulling it out of the USB connection?

 

Your using S-Video or Composite Video RCA Connectors? Is the media import screen under options showing the way your connected?

My USB is plugged directly into my laptop with no hub or extension. I'm using the Composite RCA Connectors. I can see the Play, Stop, REW etc on the screen but it only shows static and then shows the red No Signal in the status area.

 

 

Thanks for helping me! I appreciate your time.

On the main Import screen the only option is Roxio Video Capture USB or Integrated Webcam and I have the USB selected but when on click on Options, the Audio imput device source is USB 2861.

 

What are you calling the "main Import screen"?

 

Please use the name of the application, don't make up names!

When I click on "Capture Video" From Roxio Creator 2010 Special Edition Home screen, it brings up the "Roxio Media Import" screen. It is the title of the screen. Sorry - wasn't making up anything.

 

By the way, Plug & Burn doesn't work either. Is there something else I should be going to?

It says I don't have permission to Use this Feature.

I've tried to upload screenshots but have been unable to.

 

marinerfreek,

 

What feature, bold text above?

 

Will you answer my questions and quit asking questions?

 

You don't have permission to upload images, at least not on this site.

The jpg you attached above. I click on it and it went directly to a new window Roxio Community window which stated.

 

Board Message

Sorry, an error occurred. If you are unsure on how to use a feature, or don't know why you got this error message, try looking through the help files for more information.

 

The error returned was:

Sorry, but you do not have permission to use this feature. If you are not logged in, you may do so using the form below if available.

 

 

Now that you responded I can see the screenshot. I couldn't see it before. Yes, it is set up exactly like that.

 

I'm sorry, I'm not a novis at this, just this program.

If you have everything hooked up the way you say it should be working.

 

Is the VHS fired up connected and running?

I am logged in, (Marinerfreek) sorry, I assumed that was the same is being signed in :)

 

Yes, the VHS is on, connected and running. I can see Stop, Play and Rew on my computer when I press the specific buttons on the VCR, just not the actual video. I've tried several different tapes.

Where are we at now???

 

Early on you said that when the Capture program was running, the Preview Screen did show the VCR functions, "STOP, PLAY, REWIND", etc. but NO video.

 

Is that still correct now that you have done the Clean Install?

 

Does the Input match your type of connection? 'Composite Video' is shown in this picture which would be the Yellow RCA cable from your VCR to the Yellow plug on the Roxio USB:

Have you tried another source like your DVD Player instead of VCR's?

 

Yes, everything is still correct as for showing "STOP, PLAY, REWIND", etc. but NO video. AND it is the same as the picture you attached.

 

I have not tried another source like a dvd player, I could probably find one without unhooking our main one. Would that tell me if it's the VCR or the adaptor?

OK did the whole Clean Uninstall step by step and the Re-install and still have the same trouble. No signal. It shows Play, Stop, Rew etc but no video. I've used two fairly new VCR's. Should I return the the bundle and try a new adaptor?

 

I can tell that you're frustrated with me but please understand...Not everyone is as familair with Roxio as you are. :)
