Question about Diamond Multimedia ( VC500) Video Capture
When i click on capture. it displays that the device is not available or being used by another application, close the application and retry. it's not connected to any other application that i know of.
I can't give a solution. I am having the same problem. Used the capture device a few months ago and it seemed to work. Now I can't get the computer to recognize the USB device and I get the same message. Anyone out there that can help?

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...

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.

Mine does the same thing. I think that the problem might be that you have to go to the yellow gear thing and you have to change the recording format to DVD and you have to change the video format to NTSC_M. And make sure you have all of your hardware and your y splitters connected right

click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you could see a yellow question / exclamation mark? ! or a red X
you will need to update/reinstall drivers
right click to reinstall drivers
if you can see your usb drive but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver if this fails to fix the problem
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red white green black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems for a computer and its parts
hope this helps you
