    Can either one of you tell me where to exactly hook up the audio jack to the PC? I just purchased this last week to do the EXACT same thing with my Hi8 Tapes.

    Any help would be much appreciated!

I had the same problem.  it turns out the s-video does not carry audio so you have to hook up a separate audio line.  On my camera there is a mini plug a/v i run a mini plug out to a rca jack splitter and then run rca cords to the red and white jacks on the one touch....then it works great.

Diamond VC500 no video formats and black screen, not recording

Had this exact same issue, tried uninstalling, reinstalling, unplugging, plugging back in, updating drivers, etc. with no success, but it was all resolved instantly when I switched the device to a different USB port. The port I was using before works fine (in fact my keyboard is now connected to it as I type) but maybe it is a different type of USB port, and not the one the video capture device is looking for. Hope this helps others with the same issue.

Why cant i upload my diamond one touch capture card to youtube pleeese help

Youtube, by default supports major video formats like MPG, AVI, MOV, WMV etc. If you are trying to load the .VOB files it may not support.

Try converting your videos to Youtube acceptable formats (mpg, avi, mov or wmv) and try uploading again. Also remember the maximum playback length of your videos shall be 15mins only.

Somehow, you have made your System Audio Output {Jack} the Primary source of the System's Audio. You are using Digital & Analog Audio at the same time. In Modern Electronics, you have to make one or the other the ONLY source of the System sound! I wish I could see your Set-Up because I know I'd spot the problem instantly. Your solution is most likely reading Your User's Guide very carefully, and finding the Switch Setting that is designed to make it work properly. This should not be happening -- most likely you just have a Function Set incorrectly.

I have not had problems using the VC600 with Windows 7 32-bit or 7 64-bit. If you have problems installing the drivers for the device, either have windows search for updates or install the drivers manually within Device Manager by doing an Update Software on the unknown devices and use the XP 64-bit drivers on the disc. If you still have problems with the device, I would contact the manufacturer's Technical Support center to see if they can help you out with the install.

Try turning off your screen saver. The recorded file will reset to zero whenever the screen saver kicks in.

I am using the vc500 to capture video. It works except

That is a frequent 'fault' with the low cost capture units.q Nothing can be done, other than seeing if Diamond has a newer driver that corrects it.

I was having this problem also. I originally plugged my 3 video cables into the VCR outlets in the front of the vcr. I finally turned the vcr around and found two other sets of video out plugs. One was to a dvd/dvr and the other was a vcr out. I took the plugs from the front of the vcr and plugged it into the dvd/dvr out and it worked! Good luck with your problem. Hope the resolution is just as simple.

How to set up one-touch video capture vc500

You can use either the S-video or the RCA video connector. I don't think you can use both at the same time but I haven't tested that. Also, if you use the S-video adapter, it has no audio so you also have to use the RCA audio connectors when using S-video. Hope that helps...
