Having Problems With "ghost Frames" In Capture

Question

Hello I have had this software for a while and during the holidays I finally got a chance to use it and capture some video. I am getting a clean capture but I find these "ghost frames" in the capture. Either the frame from a few seconds before is duplicated or the current frame is spliced with another frame from a few seconds before. I am getting a clean signal and a clean capture except for this problem I have to go back and delete all these "ghost frames". can someone tell me why this is happening and what I can do to fix this.

 

the version of Easy VHS to DVD is version: 1.2.198 SP2 5.0.0.0

system is windows vista

processor ADM Turion X2 dual core

memory 3 gigs looks like 1.5 available when software is running.

Have a 300 gig hard drive dedicated for capture.

 

I am attaching some jpgs each has the frame before the middle frame "ghost frame" and the frame after.

was afraid of that...it's a laptop so upgrading my graphic card is not an option...I did try capturing on the c drive but nothing changed... I think I meet the standards for the software and usb device...I thought this was the answer to a cheap way to capture without much expense...I might as well get a dedicated machine and a industry standard capture card. your thoughts?

Find your Video Chip and update the drivers/software from the manufacture.

 

Make sure NOTHING else is running during capture!

 

You can see my Lap specs, it is far less than yours and it never misses a beat.

 

FORGOT :o

 

Try setting capture quality to DV as well as DV HQ to see if either one make any difference???

re: As a test, can you try a capture from another source - DVD Player or VCR with a different tape...

 

tryed to capture from diferent sourse:

 

1-tv/satalite - got sound dropoff a few times no "ghost frames"

2-dvd player - got "ghost frames"

3-blue ray player -got "ghost frames"

 

 

re: you can update your Video Card drivers and try capturing to your C:\ instead, but that is all I can think of...

 

updated the video driver tryed capture on "C" drive on DV HQ setting still have "ghost frames"

Only other things that come into play would be running your Lap on Battery?

 

no not running my laptop on battery and its power plan is set to high performance when it is plugged in.

 

Trying other USB ports, some perform better than others...

 

tried this last night laptop has three different usb ports tried all three no change.

What did you find for Video software/drivers from the manufactures site?

 

ATI Catalyst Control Center.

 

 

any advise?

Never heard of this in the 2+ years the Roxio device has been out.

 

I have heard of this with other captures not involving the Roxio device.

 

In each and every case, it was the computer... Hence the idea that it is time for a format... If it were mine, that is what I would have done by this time ;)

:( I have another laptop that I would be willing to reformat. by this you mean taking it back to the original state out of the box? I will see the specs on it and get back to you.

Why don't you try it on the other laptop first???

 

Do you have a desktop?

 

I installed the software into my second laptop last night, it is older one but it seems to work fine now.

I did a few captures last night and no "ghost frames" I will do further test today and get back to you.

So it would appear that there is something amiss with your 1st laptop :glare:

 

 

Honestly I have no idea, the newer laptop works fine with everything else I use encore on it to edit for DVD output.

 

I have a feeling that the graphics driver may be giving me trouble as it has crashed a few times on me giving me a blue screen, is there anyway I can delete the graphics driver and install it again new?

 

I had VHS to DVD give me errors the first time I installed it but then I repaired it and it seemed to work fine.

 

any suggestions?

 

regards
