Software does not pass windows xp logo test

Hi , i have tried to install the software that came with the dv camera and the windows xp logo is on the disc but when i try to install it , it says that it doesnt pass the windows logo test , so i click continue anyway and it seems to still work ( but not properly ) and i cant seem to get a smooth transfer from tape to computer , i currently use a USB 2.0 connection for transfer and i dont know if a fire wire would make a difference or not?
I tried looking it up online and from what i can gather it seems that the usb connection is actually faster for transfer , so im kind of stumped on that one , it plays perfect on the computer but as soon as i try to capture the video to the computer it gets all skipy and slow.

any help regarding this matter will be appreciated,

Re: software does not pass windows xp logo test


A FireWire connection would definitely help you out here, as they are designed to be much faster and of better quality than a standard Universal Serial Bus (USB) connection. Whoever told you USB is faster is definitely misinformed, or have unusual software issues with FireWire

Hi, i have a panasonic NV-GS25 Digital video camera and i want to download the video from there onto my pc. I have toshiba setelite A665 with windows 7. I have the CD software designed for windows but when...

There are 2 basic solutions for this. Windows seven is not compatible with the software you are using so you have to look for and download software that works with windows 7. The other solution is to change the Operating system to Windows XP service pack 3 or use a pc that has this OS.

I have a sony handycam dcr-hc19e. I am trying to transfer to my laptop which only has a usb connector and i have updated software still wont work - any ideas?

If you computer has Windows Vista or Windows 7 installed, then streaming over USB is not supported on those operating systems.
It is only supported on Windows XP.
At any rate, the quality of the video when streamed over USB is of considerably lower quality when compared to the video when transferred of IEEE 1394 connection.
If you don't have Windows XP, you'll have to find a computer with an IEEE 1394 connector and buy a Sony DV to IEEE 1394 cable. The DV port on the camera is right next to the USB port. Consult your local Sony retailer to find the proper cable for your camera.

Samsung VP-D305i How do i get files from camera to PC??!?!?!?

Samsungs software (DVC Media) is not compatible with vista and their latest version is not available to most countries.

I use Vista and how I download is as follows:
1) Install DVC driver from disk (Ignore request to install media player). It can say error but I found it still worked.
2) Plug in a firewire (IEEE) cable to your camera and PC then use a authoring package to capture footage. I use adobe premier elements but can use a number of others.

Can't use camera as a webcam.

Plug it in using your USB cable (it should have come with the camera) and then put the camera in the movie recording mode

(the red icon showing a film camera)

It should install automatically, if not then restart the computer with it plugged in and then check if its on (you can check by logging into MSN messenger and looking below you avatar, if there is a tiny webcam logo then its working

Unable to tansfer video to computer using DV cable..

Pinnacle software will recognize the camera installed through a firewire cable once the camera is turned on. Windows movies software doesn't recognize DV cameras. You may be able to get capture to work if you go to and download the Windows Media 9.0 Development Kit. I believe DV input is a capture option.

There has to be a 3rd party program installed to get it to recognize it.

Good luck on that.

Problem capturing footage from Canon MV700 DV camcorder to Windows XP

I use Pinnacle Studio versions 9 and 10 without any problems. The software sees the camera MV700i and controlls the playback etc. Have also used Ulead Movie Factory without any problems, but its a little harder when it comes to editing the output.

"This Software Has Not Passed Windows Logo Testing"?

Microsoft developed the Windows Logo Testing as a standard for all software to meet before receiving a "seal of approval' from Microsoft. Software must pass a series of tests in order to pass the Logo Test. However, just because a program or software has not met Logo Testing criteria, this is not an implication that the software should not be used or that it is not Windows Compatible. Pass and Fail Each test case has "Pass" and "Fail" conditions. A "Fail" for any one of the test cases for any one of the Logo Program requirements disqualifies the application for the "Designed for Windows XP" Logo. Sample Tests: Application must Support Autorun for CDs and DVD's Application must Install to Program Files by default Application must Support Add or Remove Programs properly Application must Support new visual styles Application must Migrate from Windows 98 to Windows XP Home Edition Application must not require a reboot inappropriately You can still use this software with Windows.
