I need help, is there an ezcap- USB Cassette Capture For Dummies?

I bought an "ezcap USB Cassette Capture because the advertising said it was easy to use. My laptop runs Windows 8.1, I read the Audacity directions and I am unsure of what to do. Where it reads "Please set recording device to be "USB Audio Device", and channels to "2(Stereo)", and select "Software Play through (Play new track while recording it)." The option available to me are as follows: Microsoft Sound Mapper - Input, Microphone Array (USB PnP Audio, Microphone (Realtek High Definition. I don't even know where to look for Software Play through (Play new track while recording it)." What it tells me to do my computer doesn't have those options. I don't have any experience with this so it's like reading German, I don't understand what to do. Do I need to download software for 8.1? The website is too confusing, I downloaded the most current software but the manual doesn't download. What came in the box: USB Cassette Capture, User Guide(joke), USB cable, Software CD (out of date), Earphones(cheap). Please help.

    I have Windows 8.1, the computer isn't even a year old yet. When I "upgraded" to 8.1 from 8.0, the Bluetooth won.t work, my laptop doesn't recognize my HTC M8 so i can't sync or download music or any audio discs. It wouldn't do any upgrades on the drivers so I bought a driver installer. It read that it was fixed, but it's still not working properly. My computer is so screwed up so I called Dell, they want to take it back to factory default. I called Microsoft and they won't help. It's a mess. I am trying to turn my cassette tapes into CDs with ezcap.

I think you need a driver, but,
The drivers, made for older windows versions, won't work on a Windows 7 or Windows 8. Not even in compatibility mode. Microsoft needed to make Windows more secure, so only allows drivers in there modern operating systems when they have a Microsoft certificate. For a certificate the manufactures must use Microsoft protocols, ask Microsoft for certification, and pay for the tests Microsoft does, to check the software is working correct. So no manufacturer will ask for certification of drivers for hardware they no longer sell. Long story, but unless you can write your driver yourself, or you can find an universal device driver (not sure something like that exists) you won't be able to use the device.
I saw some dodgy sites trying to offer drivers. Be aware all drivers you can install in windows 7 or 8, you can get them from Microsoft. The ones you could use on an XP computer can't be used, because Windows 7 or 8 won't let you install them. Just for security reasons.
When your device is sold with compatible with Windows x and it is lower version then the one you use, most likely you can't find driver for your device for the modern Windows. Almost no manufacturer will offer drivers for hardware they no longer sell.

SOURCE: my dell inspiron 1525 microphone does not record.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525. I used Skype ages ago and returned to it a couple of days ago. No one could hear me. I researched for 20 hours, downloading drivers, checking EVERY setting possible and NOW have got the ANSWER. The wires in the Microphone Array are fatigued. My microphone works perfectly when I tilt my lcd screen half way down. Go to Webcam Manager, Tools, Audio controls, the microphone has 2 bars which go green when you talk into it. Tilt your screen and watch the bars go up and down. Not the answer you probably wanted but as long as you skype with your screen half tilted everything is good to go

Video capture ezcap ver36.1s


I had the same problem. I attempted to solve it by using two EZYcaps with the idea of splitting the sound and video streams but as they use the same driver that didn't work. Splitting the video and sound inputs to two USB ports is the key to success. What did work was when I tried plugging in an old USB SoundBlaster sound stick. It is a little thing like a thumb drive but with two mini jacks, one for mic and one for earphones. I plug the mic into the SoundBlaster and the S-Video into the EzyCap. As the SoundBlaster uses a different driver they don't clash.
I also use "SplitCam" to put it all back together and stream the whole lot to the internet. Split Cam also lets me stream to inSpeak video chat while I also stream to Livestream. check out the results on www bgemc.org site. The second EzyCap sits as a spare in my bag. I also audio record the service at the same time. This is all done through a Toshiba Satellite laptop. CPU usage is usually below 30% often down to 10%. By the way I used to use ManyCAM and U-Stream but didn't get good results. All the best. Malachi.

Cassette mate


The product arrived with an instruction manual. I followed the instructions, installed the included software, and then was unable to get the product to work as my PC (Windows 7) did not seem to recognize the device. I tried several USB ports to no avail. I emailed the seller and promptly received an email with different instructions. Although the software version on the installation CD was different from that referenced in the instructions, I was able to install and finally got the device to work as needed. The problem is that there are two programs on the installation CD and one (cassettemate) appears not to function, while the other (audacity) is what is needed. This is not indicated in the instructions that come with the device.Close cassette mate window and open audacity press play in the cassette player and press recording button in audacity program.

I ordered VHS2DVD and received a DVD with that title, but also a DVD titled EzCAP. Ran the first which was a tutorial, then loaded EzCAP. Video capture seems to work except I get no audio. How can I...


I got the same system. The instructions in the PDF manual say you do not need the EzCAP Disk. I can capture video, but no audio. The trouble shooting site tells me if I have only one audio output on my VCR, I need to get an RCA signal combiner from Cables 2 Go. I am going to try Radio Shack first. That might be the solution.
