Having purchased one of these several months ago, being unable to get it to work and returning it to you, I was concerned that I might experience the same problems with this newer version. However I have succesfully transferred some test VHS recordings both to hard drive and DVD. I have yet to successfully use the Showbiz software, but I have downloaded a manual from Arcsoft and I do not therefore anticipate problems using it.

I tried the product with a TV/VCR combi unit, and it didnt work. I then got hold of a dedicated VCR and it worked very well using the yellow/red/white S-video connections into a SCART. Sound is decent. Overall good value for money in transferring old home movies to DVD file etc. Have not yet tried it with 'real' VHS films (copying those is illegal, of course!) but i think it would also work well with those. Only complaint would be that I cant get the AVI type file working so have to choose between MPEG (poor quality) or DVD (big file size). But it is still a good value for money product if you can get it working, if it fails at first i recommend try a few different combinations of hardware til you find something that it likes.

I was using an input socket not an output socket/ It turned out I should have been using the scart lead from the back of the VHS player so probably had purchased wrong RGB lead. Could do with proper simple instructions.

My order was received within the advertised delivery period. However, the item in question did not adapt to my Video Equipment. Upon receipt, I contacted the Company, and was given the `Best Ever After Sales Service` I have ever received for many years. The member of staff I dealt with, bearing in mind that he was dealing with a refund of payment, could not have been of more assistance. If you identify the individual in question, I hope that you award him accordingly.

Not 5 stars because I had some problems with the installation on my equipment. Your customer services made sure that I got over the problem (which incurred buying additional equipment) and I found them very helpful. The website is user friendly for those of us who are not very technologically minded.

Easy to use and produced successful results. The instructions could have been clearer, and a written manual would have been useful.

The product purchased was a gift - I can only guess at its performance and value-for-money. The status updates were welcome and the order was delivered before I expected it to be. My purchase was info from an advertisement. However your website was easy to use for ordering.

Q: I am unable to connect Easy Capture to my VCR / camcorder / DVD player – what can I do? 1 answer
A: When you buy a VCR, camcorder or DVD player you are usually supplied with an ‘RGB lead’. This lead has three yellow, red and white connectors at each end, or alternatively it may have these connectors at one end and a Scart jack at the other end. If you no longer have the RGB lead which is required to connect your Easy Capture to your existing VCR, camcorder or DVD player, you can order these for just £4.95 each.
By MySmartBuy.com Staff Was this answer helpful? YesNo
Q: Which lead do I need? 1 answer
A: 1. If your player features a set of three red, yellow and white jacks at the back of the unit then you will need a RGB to RGB lead to connect the Easy Capture to your computer. 2. If your player features a Scart socket at the back of the unit then you will need a RGB to Scart lead to connect the Easy Capture to your computer.

Q: I have a 'mono' camcorder. Will the Easy Capture work with this or must I have a stereo camcorder? 1 answer
A: Easy Capture can work with 'mono' camcorder. It does depend on what operation system you use; Windows XP is not a problem but if using Vista, when in preview there is no sound, but when you record you can get audio. Be sure to set the Audio Device to USB Audio Device.
By MySmartBuy.com Staff Was this answer helpful? YesNo

A: It will have a small window on the top left corner off the screen to show what you are recording

A: The following is the masterkey number which can be used: 729A2-8A000-05519918
By MySmartBuy.com Staff Was this answer helpful? YesNo
Q: Can the EasyCap record audio tapes onto my computer? 1 answer
A: It can because it is just an interface for audio and video inputs into the computer. BUT the software provided is for recording videos with audio on to the computer and not just solely audio. Unless you have sufficient audio software, which is for recording audio, and are confident in using the software and recording audio then it is not advised to use the Easy Capture for recording audio tapes.
By MySmartBuy.com Staff Was this answer helpful? YesNo
Q: Can the Easy Capture be used to record videos from other devices such as a Sky box or straight from a televison, or anything along those lines? 1 answer
A: Yes it can. As long as the device you wish to record from has the relevant outputs required (Red, White and Yellow phono video lead). These must be outputs and not inputs otherwise it will not work. Check in the devices manuel first to see whether the device has the outputs needed.
By MySmartBuy.com Staff Was this answer helpful? YesNo
Q: Can I copy films onto my computer using the Easy Capture? 1 answer
A: Yes you can only for personal use. It is piracy to copy a film and then sell or lend it to another person without permission to do so.
By MySmartBuy.com Staff Was this answer helpful? YesNo
Q: Will the videos I record onto my computer take up much space? 1 answer
A: Yes they will. Video files are large files. You can choose the quality of the video to save space on your computer. The lower the quality the smaller the file.
By MySmartBuy.com Staff Was this answer helpful? YesNo
Q: How long will it take to record? 1 answer
A: This is a real time capture device therefore it will take 3 hours to record a 3 hour tape, for example.
By MySmartBuy.com Staff Was this answer helpful? YesNo
Q: How many hours of video tape for 1GB? 1 answer
A: The space depends on which format and which size you choose. For example: in AVI format there is no compression, the size is largest, and therefore takes about 1gb for 10 minutes recording. However it only uses around 200mb if using mpeg format, and only about 30mb if using WMV format.
By MySmartBuy.com Staff Was this answer helpful? YesNo
Q: Is the Easy Capture compatible with the old style video 8mm camcorders? 1 answer
A: Yes it is if you have a connection lead. See question 1 for details.
By MySmartBuy.com Staff Was this answer helpful? YesNo
Q: I am being asked to register the EasyCap online. What happens if I don't do this? 1 answer
A: The only advantage of registering the software means that they will receive further up-grades etc. Not being able to register doesn't mean the software won't work.
By MySmartBuy.com Staff Was this answer helpful? YesNo
Q: I have connected EasyCapture and run the Ulead software but I cannot see the picture which I am inputting to the device. What do I do? 1 answer

Click " Video and Audio Capture Property setting". 3. At the prompted window, click "Source" panel, choose the video source as " Video composite". 4.
