Unable to capture video to my pc or laptop

Hi,
i have connected my video (yellow) left/right audio(red/white) leads to a scart adapter and plugged this into my line1 scart on the vcr, the other end of the cable is fitted to the cameramate and the usb lead plugged to my laptop/pc.
All drivers where loaded on correctly and all equipment appears to be working correctly ie. leads tested, cameramate is detected when pluged to the pc/laptop. the device shows up on the config page aswell so im guessing its working ok .
i have used the software that came with it and the moviemaker 2 software from microsoft but i still always get the same message
UNABLE TO CAPTURE VIDEO
can anyone help, ive tried evrything. the only thing i can think of is that there is no out put from line 1 scart but then again ive tried line 2 scart just the same -line 1 shoule have the output. could it be the scart to yellow red white adapter ???
ran it through the tv taking the output from scart 2 as my tv manual says, still the same........HELP. cheers Glen.

Try tech support.  I have the driver for an earlier version of the Cameramate which I can email you, but I'm not sure if it works with your USB version. Here's what they told me: From: "Techhelp4" <techhelp4@ziosupport.com> Date: June 15, 2006 5:16:45 PM EDT To: <cmyers1809@earthlink.net> Subject: CameraMate Drivers and Software Link
Hello Clay,   1) Please download and install the attached drivers for the device you have.   2) Double click on the attached file and extract it to a folder on your computer. It is important that you 
know where you are extracting the files to so that you can access them later.
 
3) Now connect the device to the computer.   4) Right click on My Computer and then go to properties.   5) Go to the device manager tab, if you are running Windows 2000 or XP then click on the hardware tab and then choose device manager.   6) Here you will find the Cameramate video device with a yellow ! or ? next to it, the device will appear as a odd symbol such as a "b" with a pi symbol next to it.   7) Double click on that device and go to the driver tab.   8) Click on the update driver button. This will open the hardware update wizard.   9) Make sure you select "no, not at this time" when the wizard asks if you want to 'connect to the internet to search for software'.  


 
10) Click Next. Now, choose 'install from a list or specific location'.   11) Click Next. Check 'search for the best drivers in these locations.   12) Uncheck 'search removable media'. Check 'include this location in the search'.   13) Now, browse to the folder to where you extracted the files to. Click next, and proceed with the installation.
 
14) To confirm just open device manager again and see if there are any more devices with yellow ! or? next to them. If there are then repeat the above process.     Part 2   We have recently released and posted the latest version of the software on our website. You may download the latest version  by clicking on the link below.  IF YOU CHOOSE TO UPDATE YOUR SOFTWARE, DO NOT USE THE CD THAT CAME WITH YOUR PRODUCT.  IT WILL NO LONGER WORK. Thank you.  Either cut and paste to your browser or click on the link.

What are the red yellow and white cords for i have a xbox


The side with 3 RCA jacks, red, white, and yellow, is for connecting the USB to a composite video cable. The black connects to an S-video cable; you would still use the red and white plugs to carry the audio. At least the older XBox's had composite video outputs; you just need the composite video cable (which you may have as they came with many video devices (VCRs, DVD players, video cameras).)

If you need to connect this Video capture device to another type of output, you will need a converter. Component to composite video would be one option. However, you will have signal loss with any converter.

I hope this helps.

How do i connect my ps2 to my pc?


The yellow plug should plug into the the yellow hole on the capture card (should be second hole from bottom, next to green hole).
You will need to get a Y audio adapter with two RCA plugs going to one mini stereo plug to connect the red and white plugs to the green hole to capture sound.

If you have just one Audio Out RCA jack then the camcorder only recorded in MONO, so all you would need to do is either plug the wire coming from your single Audio Out jack into the left or white input jack of your Capture Device which may have an option in the software program to set it to recieve audio in MONO, or you can buy a RCA Jack Splitter that goes from a single Female RCA jack on one end and 2 Male RCA Jacks on the other end. Then you take the end of the Splitter with 2 plugs and plug one of them into the White Jack and the other into the Red Jack on your Capture Device, and the other end with just one plug should plug into the cord coming from the Black Jack on your Camcorder.

Hi! You must use a firewire in order to receive power - if you're going to use composite cables (red, white, yellow) you will have to purchase an AC adapter.

Video output from VHS recorder


does your television have multiple scart connectors? Sometimes some models have only 1 connector that will accept RGB signals... Another thing you can check are VCR settings - scart component video output is not "official" and hence you might need to look at some of the setting if you need to enable it. Another possibility is that your scart cable may not have your rgb signals connected (based on wikipedia reference: "not all SCART cables make use of all the pins, often leaving out RGB signals. In many cases there is also no way to see which type of signal that is currently displayed on the TV set."
