Belkin Hi-Speed USB 2.0 DVD Creator + Sony TRV65E Hi-8 Camcorder
Here is the solution from another group. I hope this helps.
Let me know (It sounds like Belkin & M$ have some bugs to deal with)
There is a God!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have just spent HOURS with a USB 2.0 DVD Creator trying to get it to work
- the Ulead software that came with it was a piece of crap that I eventually
after several tries got to install & then crashed every time I tried to open
it - just like many of the posts I have found - could not solve the problem
so gave up.
I have spent considerable time combing forums trying to find the solution (I
hate to be beaten!) - was close to giving up when I found this post - did not
solve the problem but set me on the right track, & with a bit (lot) of luck -
i am home!!!
Here's what I did - the problem IS Windows Movie Maker defaulting back to
In WMM Set the format to PAL in "Options" - from memory this is in the Tools
menu - sorry, I am in the middle of capturing video, so cannot access the
menus to check.
The only thing you then have to do was advised courtesy of an email reply
"In windows movie maker, click on capture from video device and then choose
the device and then there should be a configure button. You will need to
change the video standard to PAL and then it should capture in colour"
Sounds simple enought, but - PROBLEM - you try to do this but you cannot
apply the change & it does not take - so you still have capture but no colour.
Here is where luck stepped in - I decided I had spent too long trying to
make this work so started surfing for alternate capture software.
I came across several possibilites & downloaded them. Just picked randomly
on one & installed it - beginner's luck!! - about time i got a break! When
the software finished installing the program prompted me to install something
else that it needed to run, which I did - don't ask me what it was - i was so
blown away when i got WMM working that it has completely escaped me!
Anyway, I installed the software (& the other required file), opened the
software (which was a trial version) & attempted to capture - same problem -
sound but no colour - then I recalled about changing to PAL, so went into the
setup, changed the video to PAL - & bingo, all OK.
I then (for some reason - madness maybe) went back into WMM, configured for
PAL as advised, & double bingo - it works!!! - as soon as I clicked on PAL I
could see colour video in the preview screen. Actually, I think what made me
go back into WMM was that SuperVideoCapture looks & feels VERY similar to WMM
I have since uninstalled the trial software program, & am capturing in WMM
with no problems - & in colour.
The last piece of the puzzle (after the pain I have gone thru I couldn't
bring you this far & not give you the final piece of the puzzle) - the
software was SuperVideoCapture & the trial version can be downloaded at
download.com - hope this gets around & ends the many headaches that people
are having with getting the belkin hardware to work
