Question

I have tried everything (I think) and still cannot get Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus to work. No video signal. I have a Toshiba T6500 laptop with a Win7 Pro upgrade from Vista Home Premium. My VCR player works fine with it's RCA ports video out to a TV. Are we sure there's not an issue with the product? I haven't noticed any resolved cases.

About 9 out of 10 people who says it doesn't work have plugged in the USB device before installing the software. If you do that, Windows installs their generic drivers which will not work. Did you do that? If so, we can point you to a fix (via device manager) but there is no need to give you that if you did it correctly.

 

Make sure you are connected to the output of your VHS player or camcorder, that it is on and paused. Make sure you are not using a USB hub and make sure your USB port is full powered. If you are not using a laptop, some (not all) front ports might be under-powered.

 

I just installed it for a friend yesterday and had no issues capturing from a 20 year old VHS tape the first time we tried.

First, thanks for your replies. Secondly, I never rule out "operator error"! Thirdly, I never rule out that I have tweaked something and now am reaping. But, I'd really like this to work. I did let the software install before plugging in the USB device. The Driver Properties say it's from Corel. I just recently re-purchased Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus with the USB capture device since the product had worked on my machine from an earlier purchase & I figured, after much trying & swapping out & googling that maybe the USB device was broken, even though the drivers showed up correctly in Device Manager. No luck, again after testing every part of the setup I could replace, re-install, re push in, download etc etc. still "no video signal"! I think I'm going to take my laptop & sotware into Best Buy where I purchased it and maybe their Geeks can get it running. Maybe another VHS player will help, though mine has worked and does work fine to a TV either through the cable or the RCA jacks. I do believe in "figger it out" so any more suggestions will help though I know you're limited not knowing all the particulars of my situation. Thanks again. I'll let you knnow what the Geeks say.

You are not supplying any info that is of any use... You say 'driver are present' but don't tell us WHAT drivers or WHERE they are located...

 

Laptop??? You are running on AC Power and not battery? Did you try ALL of the ports (some may not have enough power to run the device).

 

HOW are you connecting to your VCR?

 

Did you try another source ~ DVD, BD Players, camcorder?
