Question about Sharp Viewcam VL-AH30U Camcorder

Open Question

Video shows perfectly on viewcam screen but any attemt to digitalize (Terratec, Dazzle, Pinnacle and Canopus ADVC-100 fails with video:succeeds wit audio. Suggestions?

Using Windows 7-64bit. All named programs succeed with audio, but show vague 'squigles' or green screen with video. Also tried to hook Sharp up through Digital Sony Camcorder 5DCR-TRV11 to Windows Movie maker. Same, no video, OK audio; Analog Recordings were made with NTSC camcorder and the camcorders now being used are also NTSC. Again note that the video + audio played on the screen of the Sharp Viewcam could not be more perfect.

    What kind of video card is your computer running off of? Audio is easy to stream and capture, but Video is bulky and struggles with slower computer processors / video processors. Example: I have a Celeron with OnBoard video - this system will not capture low res or Hi-res videoNow let's say that your computer was doing your video just fine.Check all your resources. memory, hard drive space, check for viruses / spyware.Hope this helps you. Otherwise you can repost to me and we can try other options.

To transfer video you need to use firewire, not usb. If you use firewire to connect, set the camera to the 'play' icon and then open up a capture program (ie, movie maker) you should be able to just record/capture from there. Good luck!

You can use the windows formatting software that is on the pc, you need a memory card reader and once the computer sees the memory card after you insert it just right click on the card and choose format. I hope this helps.

Thanks for this thread, I am so frustrated. I ;have a windows pc with XP sp2. I use Windows Movie Maker, mostly. I have a pinnacle av/dv card, which has a firewire input, as well as the rca jacks. Feeding...


i love a well informed person with computers. so many people post here and don' t give any other information; and for that i thank and congratulate you. now for your resolution. i have read up on this particular unit and with this one i have found several hundred issues with the quality. especially when viewing on larger LCD screens.
knowing this, i suggest the upgraded model. Canopus ADVC 300 Analog / Digital Video Converter......http://www.firewire-1394.com/canopus-advc-300.htm
now with that said you mentioned you have a pinnacle av/dv card. my question involves the issue with your firewire. on most cards of this nature they want to be "alone". meaning that the card wants to be in a pci slot to itself with no neighbors. i suggest putting it in the very first slot available to avoid this and then putting your other cards in the remaining slots. this card you are using is also a little outdated. here is a better card.... http://cgi.ebay.com/Compro-Videomate-C500-PCI-DV-Analog-Capture-Card-2-/170586107840?pt=AU_Components&hash=item27b7b96fc0#ht_1080wt_905
If you have any problems let me know and please leave positive feedback for me. Jethro

I am running on a Dell XPS and my dazzle dvd recorder wont work.


Hi and Welcome to fixya!

I suggest to you to double click on Instant DVD Recorder Icon and choose go directly to Advance mode. Click next. On step number 1 click the pull down arrow and choose dazzle DVC 100. Click on options and choose video input. If your cable connection is the yellow red and white cable then choose Video composite, If S-video cable then choose Video S-video. If you have a VHS player click VHS input and click okay.
Next when everything is done turn your camcorder,vhs,vcr and then hit the play button.

That is the time that the video image is showing to the preview screen of the computer. Still not showing disconnect the dazzle device and place to another usb port.

If your dazzle device is not showing under step number one, you need to download and install the driver to Pinnacle Website.

No analog signals thru ADVC100


Canopus customer support just wrote me back with the bad news: "If all 3 lights are on, then the unit has failed. We no longer
manufacture or repair ADVC 100's (they are almost 7 years old now). You
would need to purchase the newer ADVC 110 as a replacement."
