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.

1 unplug Dazzle from USB. turn off pc, restart with out dazzle plugged in. shut down PC, restart then plug dazzle in after PC has restarted fully. if that don't work then go to step 2. ( sometimes using a different USB port works too)
2. uninstall it and reinstall it should work fine. i had the same problem and had to many things in the USB ports at the same time.
Disconnect your dazzle DVC 170 and reconnect back to another usb port. Go to your control panel then device manager look for sound video and games controller, Right click on the Pinnacle DVC 170 video drive device uninstall. Restart the computer. After restarting let the computer do the automatic install then after that try again.
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.
When you open your Instant DVD Recorder all you have to do is to choose Go directly to advance mode then on step number 1 click on the pull down arrow and choose dazzle dvc 100. Click option after that. Click on video input and then click VCR input. Now go to step number 4 and you can now put your valid time for recording. Check if choppy video again and let me know it by replying here.
When there is no video after you hit start recording then go ahead and disconnect your dazzle device to your computer and then connect it back to another usb port. Go to your control panel, system,hardware, device manager and then sound video and games controller look for dazzle device video driver right click uninstall restart your computer afterwards. go back and open Instant DVD Recorder and choose the advance mode. On step number 1 select capture source then select your dazzle device. Open your camcorder play it make sure that the video image will now showing to your preview screen of your computer and then hit record now.
When you cannot get into put the time for recording on step number 4 all you have to do is to go back to step number 1. Double click on Pinnacle Instant DVD Recorder and choose go direct to the advance mode and click next. On Step number 1 click on the pull down arrow and choose for dazzle DVC 100. Go back to step number 4 and now put the total and valid time recording. If there is no Dazzle device on step number 1 go ahead and disconnect your dazzle and connect to another usb port or much better if you connect that at the back of the computer.Try it again.
