Bought this thing back in 2001, and used it once or twice. Now, I'd like to use it again to send some video to some family.
I've spent many, many hours trying to figure out how to successfully download the XP drivers, and finally managed to do it yesterday. However, I still seem to be unable to use this thing while attmepting to capture video via Microsoft Windows Movie Maker.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Re: Could use some help
Hi, Try this trick to get around Microsofts silly habits. [We all have come across them somewhere]
Open "my documents" create a new file, name it to suit your video, plug your camera/player in and run the video into the created file.
Then simply send the file as an attachment in an email. Ensure you tell the person you send it to exactly which program you used, so when they open it window's does not get confused.
This can be done from MS PowerPoint/ MS Office and several others.

I had this same problem. Took it back and got my money back. Was trying to use with iMovie. Was told I needed at least the ADVC300 (also known as Canopus). Not sure why, but the 300 did the trick. Could be other problems, though. Maybe your firewire is bad, or the port on the computer. Or the connectors you're using between the VCR and converter. I hope it isn't too late to exchange any of the equipment you bought. Usually it's 14 days for these things. Good luck! It is hard to pin down these problems!
The first thing I would try to do, is to download the latest drivers from the website and see if that helps.
if the computer is going really slow, you might also have spyware or virus, you may want to check for that. you can download spybot search and destroy at www.safer-networking.org or spybot at www.lavasoft.com they are both free you can also d/l antivirus software at www.eset.com good for 30 days
to find Creative Labs drivers, go to this page: http://support.creative.com/
and in the upper right hand corner, choose your region of the world...
on the next page, choose your country and language. This is important
as some models are only sold in certain countries, so be sure to select
the country where you bought the cam.
once you are in the
support page, click on the cams section and see if your cam appears on
that page.... if not, and you need help to figure out what exactly to
look for on the site (there is quite a lot) use the link to help you
'identify your cam' in the upper right corner above the photos of all
after that, use the link at the bottom to find your
cam in the lists provided on the next page.... once you select
something from the list, you have to click the 'next' button at the
bottom.... that should take you to the page where you can download your
driver, and possibly other software and a manual if you need those
be sure you select the driver for your operating
system, and keep in mind that some older cams don't work on newer
systems, like windows vista.
I had the same problem. It turned out the issue was that I had the VGA Y-cable connectors between the PC and the KWorld box reversed. They look like they should be interchangeable, but they are not. A closer look at the cable connectors shows that one is marked "PC", one is marked "Monitor", and the 3rd is marked "SCAN CNVTR". Once I got them plugged into the right places, I got the screen image on the TV.
