Question about CyberPower CPH420P 4-Port USB Hub

2 Answers

Installing USB Hub

We recently bought a Dazzle DVD Recorder which requires a USB Port 2.0. We discovered our computer only has a USB Port 1.1. We went to Walmart where we purchased the CyberPower CPH420P 4-Port USB Hub having been told that this would work. Our computer seemingly does not recognize the 2.0 as a window pops up telling us the product (Dazzle) would run faster if we had a 2.0 USB Port. Were we misinformed that this would basically override the 1.1 Port and we could then use our USB Ports as if we had a 2.0 USB Port?

Finsphan72's response is correct but you could use information one step earlier. 
USB 1.1 is the older version of USB.  USB 2.0 is newer and much faster.  Your computer has hardware in it to talk to USB.  Because it is an older computer, it has USB 1.1 hardware.  
The USB hub is just a splitter.  It lets you plug in several USB devices while only using one USB port in your computer.  But it doesn't change the fundamental capabilities of your computer. 
The only way to get a computer with USB 1.1 built-in to support USB 2.0 is to add a USB 2.0 card to the computer.  This is an open up the computer and install a piece of hardware operation.  It isn't very hard and it isn't very expensive, but it might not be something you are comfortable doing (and it is possible to mess things up - you probably wouldn't, but you could).  Maybe this is an "ask a high school age friend for a favor" sort of situation.

After installing the USB controller card into a PCI slot inside your computer, connect the 4 port hub to it with the supplied cable. (at the back of the computer)
Do not connect the DVD Recorder to the old usb ports. They will still work, but obviously not 2.0.

Connecting the power supply for the hub is optional, but usually a good idea.

If your computer still doesn't recognize the hub, make sure you have all of the latest windows updates and try running Add New Hardware in control panel. Also, just unplugging the hub and plugging it back in will sometimes work. Use a different port on the controller card if necessary.

As a last resort, you may need to disable the onboard usb controller through your system bios.

Good Luck

Please go back tot he step 1 select video source.
Make sure that the dazzle device is selected and not Pinnacle file capture.

If the dazzle device is not in the list. It means that the computer is not recognizing the device. Try to connect the device to other USB port and please check it again.

You can download the driver of the capture device in the link below.

I insalled the software, but I can't get the videos from my camera onto my computer. When I put in the usb, it tells me it could perform faster in a different port but I've tried all my ports. I just want...

I think your PC is drawing attention to the difference between USB 1.1 and USB 2 ports, USB2 being much faster.

It wouldn't do this if you had USB2 ports on your PC.

Now working on the premise that your copying video tape to your PC rather than copying video files to your PC.

Other than rebuilding your PC or buying a new one will USB2 ports, you could

1) If its a laptop, use the firewire port. Just buy a firewire cable.
2) If its deskstop, buy a firewire PCI card (Not much, try ebay). You'll also need a firewire cable.
3) Carry on using the kit that you've already got, its just going to take a lot longer.

A final thought comes to mind, especially if the process is to copy tape to dvd.

I've have friends have no end of problems using these Dazzle and similar products in conjunction with a PC to make a DVD copy. The big issue being lip sync problems.

The way I prefer, and much more reliable is to daisy chain a

Camcorder/VHS recorder to a DVD recorder with a hard drive and finally a TV for monitoring.

Press play on the camcorder/VHS and record on the DVD player.

Once complete, edit on the DVD player and then write to DVD.
