Question about Belkin VideoBus II Video Capture

1 Answer

Won't work with windows Vista

I have a Belkin F5U208 USB video bus II , It worked perfectly with My old Computer, and now gives me an error when I try to import video from my camcorder. I have installed the drivers from the original installation disc, and it fails to recognize my Sony camcorder. I paid $100.00 for this several years ago, and there is nothing wrong with it. I hope Belkin didn't fail to update this unit to work with Vista, so people will go out and buy a new one. If that's the case I've bought my last piece of Belkin equipment. Thanks , Nat

    In my experience with Vista-- unless it says "compatible with Vista" it probably isn't

SOURCE: Belkin Hi-Speed USB 2.0 DVD Creator + Sony TRV65E Hi-8 Camcorder

Here is the solution from another group. I hope this helps. Let me know (It sounds like Belkin & M$ have some bugs to deal with) JC QUOTED TEXT There is a God!!!!!!!!!!!! I have just spent HOURS with a USB 2.0 DVD Creator trying to get it to work - the Ulead software that came with it was a piece of crap that I eventually after several tries got to install & then crashed every time I tried to open it - just like many of the posts I have found - could not solve the problem so gave up. I have spent considerable time combing forums trying to find the solution (I hate to be beaten!) - was close to giving up when I found this post - did not solve the problem but set me on the right track, & with a bit (lot) of luck - i am home!!! Here's what I did - the problem IS Windows Movie Maker defaulting back to NSTC. In WMM Set the format to PAL in "Options" - from memory this is in the Tools menu - sorry, I am in the middle of capturing video, so cannot access the menus to check. The only thing you then have to do was advised courtesy of an email reply from Belkin: "In windows movie maker, click on capture from video device and then choose the device and then there should be a configure button. You will need to change the video standard to PAL and then it should capture in colour" Sounds simple enought, but - PROBLEM - you try to do this but you cannot apply the change & it does not take - so you still have capture but no colour. Here is where luck stepped in - I decided I had spent too long trying to make this work so started surfing for alternate capture software. I came across several possibilites & downloaded them. Just picked randomly on one & installed it - beginner's luck!! - about time i got a break! When the software finished installing the program prompted me to install something else that it needed to run, which I did - don't ask me what it was - i was so blown away when i got WMM working that it has completely escaped me! Anyway, I installed the software (& the other required file), opened the software (which was a trial version) & attempted to capture - same problem - sound but no colour - then I recalled about changing to PAL, so went into the setup, changed the video to PAL - & bingo, all OK. I then (for some reason - madness maybe) went back into WMM, configured for PAL as advised, & double bingo - it works!!! - as soon as I clicked on PAL I could see colour video in the preview screen. Actually, I think what made me go back into WMM was that SuperVideoCapture looks & feels VERY similar to WMM . I have since uninstalled the trial software program, & am capturing in WMM with no problems - & in colour. The last piece of the puzzle (after the pain I have gone thru I couldn't bring you this far & not give you the final piece of the puzzle) - the software was SuperVideoCapture & the trial version can be downloaded at download.com - hope this gets around & ends the many headaches that people are having with getting the belkin hardware to work

Answer above was correct, but Belkin screwed up the US website so the links don't work. Try this instead:

Either way, you need to buy a new capture device as that one was designed for Windows 2000 and does not have a 64 bit driver.

I just had the same problem and was able to figure our a permanent fix.Judging by the date of you post, I'm guessing you've already remedied this problem one way or another. But just in case you haven't or someone else is having the same problem, I'll go ahead and post what to do. First, make sure you leave the USB hub plugged in right now so that Device Manager lists what it thinks is the Bluetooth device. Go into Control Manager > Hardware & Sound > Device Manager. Right click on Bluetooth device that is showing up in error. From the dropdown box, select Properties. Click the Driver Tab. Click Uninstall. Check "Delete the driver software for this device." Click OK. Unplug your USB hub for a few seconds, then plug it back in. Windows should now recognize it as a "Generic USB hub." You should be good to go. Just remember not to install that update again or try to update the driver for the Generic USB hub. If you do, you'll end up with the same problem. I hope this helps someone out there.

Security camera hook up


There are several types of hook-up that will allow you to use your surveillance camera with your pc. If you have Windows XP or Windows 2000 you can use Belkins Video Bus II which will allow you to plug your RCA Jacks into it's RCA jacks then plug Belkins USB connection into your computer depending on your software that comes with your camera equipment will depend on the quality of sound you will get. The Belkin Video Bus II comes with a cd with the drivers required. This device ( Belkin's Video Bus II ) will not work with Windows Vista!!! There are probably several other devices that will allow you to do a hook up but, the price will vary between 40.00 for Belkin to well over 150.00 for others. Check with Circuit City / Best Buy / Compusa. etc....

You need 'Windows Movie Maker' or 'VideoWave' to capture and edit video.

The Complete user manual is available at the following link [500 kb]:

Canoscan 4200f Problem with Vista 32 bit


I got mine working after experiencing the same problem.

I had mine hooked up to a USB hub, after I hooked it directly to the USB ports in the back of my computer, everything just worked fine.

Weird that it worked on the USB hub on XP and not vista though.
