I just installed the "Easy VHS to DVD" system. I notice the capture card (UB315-E Ver 3) is running quite hot. This raises my concern regarding an early failure.

 

Comments?

They do run warm, hot to me is you can't touch it without getting burned?

 

Failure, explain that is as much detail as you can.

cd and a few others got them when they first came out, 10/08.

 

2 1/2 years later they are still running ;)

 

The difference is that if you installed an internal card, you couldn't touch it so ignorance is bliss :lol:

 

I also have another External and it runs very hot and has for the last 6 years. Like cd advised, as long as you can hold it, you should not have any problems.

 

Other than that, any problems?

I have had the same issue using Creator 2011 Pro! I am am using using a Dell Precision-M6500 i7, Q820 @ 1.73GHz, laptop running Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit) SP-1. At one point, the system shut down the USB port due to over heating! I also have a Dell Dimension 8300 P-4 @ 3GHz desktop running Windows XP Pro SP-3. The Video Capture USB device got very warm on this system too, but it was Not connected to a device to capture from!

Yes the physical device is hot to touch, there is a lot going on inside there!

 

We normally reccomend not using the short USB extension that comes with it, but that may help insulate your lap from the heat transfer of the device.

 

also check you USB spec on the lap. Not all ports have the miliamp capacity to run the device and the one you chose may be maxed out :huh:

 

On my Dell Mini 10, only one has the rated power of the 3. I have used the others, but only for short caps.
