Belkin Hi-Speed USB 2.0 DVD Creator + Sony TRV65E Hi-8 Camcorder

Hi, Please could help me fix the below problem I am having. I have a Belkin Hi-Speed USB 2.0 DVD Creator (F5U228) with a Sony TRV65E Hi-8 Camcorder. I have it setup to capture some old footage of my daughter that I would like to put onto DVD. The problem I have is that it will only seem to capture in black & white. I have made sure the footage is okay by testing it on my tv, it appears in full glorious colour. I have also made sure all settings are set to pal and have also tried using s-video cable instead of composite. When its capturing there is a frequent flicker of colour trying to come through but its just a few lines. I have located and installed the latest driver for the device and also the latest video driver for my laptop (PB Easynote H5, 64MB nVidia go5100) without any joy. I have tried various software packages, windows movie maker, ulead studio 6, pinnacle studio 8 and still no change. I just don't know what else I can try, please please please save the rest of my hair and suggest something I can try. Any help is Greatly appreciated. Adam.

Re: Belkin Hi-Speed USB 2.0 DVD Creator + Sony TRV65E...

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) JC QUOTED TEXT 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 NSTC. 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 from Belkin: "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 - hope this gets around & ends the many headaches that people are having with getting the belkin hardware to work

From the looks of it there's no Vista support yet. Pinnacle Systems needs to come out with somekind of patch soon. I've been looking for an hour as well. Couldn't find anything but people discussing the fact that they need the patch badly. On the Pinnacle site there's a link to software for Dazzle Video Creator 9 but it leads to an error page.

I guess you'll have to watch carefully when an update arrives.
Or try to find something of an automatic update feature in the software, maybe it'll find something.

You can try simpler programs such as Windows Movie Maker but I don't think it suits your needs when you want to edit stuff.

Another solution might be Sony Vegas.
For more information on the Sony Vegas product family, click link below:

I hope this will help you out. It's really frustrating that you buy software and then you can't use it on Vista.

I am trying to import video from a Canon ES75 Hi-8 camcorder. I've trying to use DVD Maker USB 2.0 from KWorld. My laptop is an HP Pavilion C700 with a 1.73 Mhz CPU, 1 GB of RAM, and 25 GBs free drive...

" No signal is detected by the software."
In older models of Hi-8 cameras the s-video out must be enabled or the camera switched to playback mode  to get signal. Check that.

I can not capture video to transfer to CD

Hi Crowey

Please check the driver of your camcorder if it is installed and
also try to check the kind of connection that you are using to connect the camcorder to your laptop.

Video capture plextor av100u

You need XP or 2000 for that. Nothing else will work.
You may try MS virtual PC (free) and install virtual windows XP, that may be a very stupid but effective workaround.
