Question

I have installed the software and have connected a camcorder to the USB interface.

 

I select record, edit and save.

 

I hit play on the camcorder and can get sound to the computer but no video.

 

What am I doing wrong?

The equipment I am using is:

 

Camcorder: Sony, DCR-TRV19

 

Computer: HP, Intel 4 (Dual-Cpre) 2.8, 2 GB RAM

 

Software 201X23A

 

This software is mainly for capturing VHS (analog) video not digital. You have a digital miniDV camcorder and you should be capturing with a Firewire connection.

 

Perhaps this

for your camera can help you Edited by myguggi

You are unable to play your video because of codecs unavailability on your system.

By the way, what is the format of video file, you are trying to play?

You can try upgrading you operating system, as it might also upgrade your media player to latest version.

On the other hand you can download and install necessary codecs manually. You can also try installing other third party software like VLC Media Player. This is a very handy software and is able to play almost every format.

You can also view http://www.techyv.com/questions/i-recently-upgraded-and-i-cant-seem-watch-my-movie-files-any-longer for more information.

I hope it might be of some help.

No, codec has absolutly NOTHING to do with it :huh:

 

Everything you need comes with the Software. This was a case of not following the instructions and trying to get to do something it cannot ;)

 

Great of you to post but also notice that no one has be in the Topic in 5 months...

I have a similar (but different) problem. I have been using Easy VHS To DVD to record programs from my DVR to the computer without any problems. I tried to record from my VCR today but could get only sound. I'm using Windows 7 on an Acer laptop. When I connected the cables, I tried using S Video; I tried using the RCA connectors..nothing at all with the S Video; I got only audio with the RCA connectors in place.

 

Help!

So we know the Roxio software and device is ok....it could be the VCR, or bad composite cable. Some older VCR's just dont have a strong enough signal for the Roxio unit to detect (borrow a friends for a test).

 

If you PVR has the correct jacks on it (composite), you could try using it as a passthrough. VCR>DVR>Roxio unit.
