Pinnacle Video Transfer: at REC, all lights turn red--except USB
After waiting for all lights to turn blue, I press REC to start recording. All lights are turn red, except the USB which continues lit up in blue--where it is connected to my thumb drive. Recording does not happen. This happens 8 out of 10 times.
Odd thing was, the RCA areas used to turn red first before blue, but now it lights up blue immediately without red. Have tried to reset to factory setting; does not help. Update firmware? Tried that. The PVT does not even power up itself after plugging power cord and USB.
Sigh, how can a product like this generate so much news and release? Too unstable.

Re: Pinnacle Video Transfer: at REC, all lights turn...
How about deleting all the software of that device and reinstalling it as a new device.
the program may have corrupted the flash drive and all the data that is on it and when you pluged into any other device it may of worked a few time but that it will start corrupting everything you have plugin your flash drive into.
you are going to reformat the flash drive and re install any type of drivers for the flash drive and check every where you have used the flash drive has not corrupt any of the systems you are using.
let hope we got it before you loose your intire system due to corrupted software downloads or uploads to flash drive and computer system and this may include a network if you are on one.

Open your Instant DVD recorder and then go ahead and select Go Direct to the advance mode. ONe window showing out there. Select your Dazzle dvc device and then click on options. Now click on video input and then click VHS input. On video input choose video composite if your video cable is yellow, red,white cable. Then click okay. Make sure that your cable is direct connect to the video out put of your camcorder. If still the same thing uninstall your video device driver. Video device is located under control panel>system>hardware>sound video and games controller then right click on pinnacle video and audio device uninstall. Restart the computer.
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.
This probably means there is a connection problem to your USB device you are connecting to the output. I would first try another cable, and if that still doesn't work then I would open the case (if not under warranty) and look around the USB connector on the board. Look for any cold joints in the solder and I would actually resolder those pins to the board. You can remove solder with desoldering braid (Radio Shack) and then apply new solder with lead-free rosin core electrical solder.
When you plug in the source device and the
output device, all of the LEDs light blue, letting you know that the
device is ready to capture. When you are ready to capture, simply press
the play button on your source device, the Rec button on the Video
Transfer, and the LEDs light red, both on the source side and the
output side, letting you know that a recording is in process. To stop
recording, press and hold the record button and when the lights turn
blue, recording has stopped.
You were not too clear on the problem, but if you mean playback, then a very good program is PowerDVD. It will access the files stored (Pinnacle and other capture devices, store the files as .mpg typed, NOT DVD .vob files.) Software like AVS video Converter, can create the DVD formatted disks; trial is free download.
Make sure that it is pluged in to Video imput and not different imput it should be yellow not red,blue,or,green unless this is the way you connect it to your T.V. If it is make sure these cables are connected properly.
Hi, You can stop and start as much as you want. Then you just hit play and record it onto your pc with the software. There is software you can get that will know when you start and stopped and will break your video up into scenes automatically onto the computer. Hope that helped, Lee
