Question about Diamond Multimedia ( VC500) Video Capture

Open Question

Diamond VC500 stops working when any input is connected.

I purchased a Diamond VC500 (for the purpose of streaming to justin.tv) and went through the driver/software installation. I run Vista Home 32-bit on an AMD Athlon 2.01ghz w/ 3GB ram. My problem is that the device is not working; the device manager shows that the VC500 cannot start (code 10).

I disconnected the device from the computer and unplugged the composite cables connected to the VC500 and then reconnected the device. Magically the device has no conflicts and functions properly. I double checked that Adobe Flash Media Live Encoder 3 could recognize the device and it did.

When reconnecting the composite cables to the device, the device immediately stopped working. I've tried uninstalling the drivers, reinstalling them, (I downloaded the specific drivers for Vista 32), rebooting, reconnecting the device, etc. As long as the device is actually connected to some form of input, it stops working.

Any ideas?

SOURCE: how to set up one-touch video capture vc500

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...

Check the configuration settings - you may have the automatic frame grab feature activated.

SOURCE: Diamond VC500 is not recording my Xbox 360

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

Try turning off your screen saver. The recorded file will reset to zero whenever the screen saver kicks in.

Hi, i just purchased the vc500 today. i installed everything the cds provided me with such as ulead and the driver. when i open up ulead and go to capture, i can see whats on my tv from my laptop but it...


I was having a problem with a USB capture device and found out that if I had anything else connected to the other USB ports it would not work properly. It needed all the power that the USB port can give it... I had the same issues testing it with a couple of my laptops too.

No signal from Diamond VC500 Capture Device


I have a similar problem. Sometimes it works fine, but it will often have sound but no picture in the box. Other times, there is no input signal showing when I click on the gear wheel to adjust settings. There is no rhyme or reason to the missing picture. Whe I play it back, I do have the picture - usually.

I am using the vc500 to capture video. It works except


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.
