Unable to record sound with the ADVC100

I have just purchased the ADVC100 and after using various editing suits, i am unable to record sound back on to the DVD.
I am using the S video cable from my HI 8 camcorder to the unit, and the S video out to the S video in on the PC.
The picture quality is good etc but the no sound prob is driving me a tad mad.
Could i be doing something wrong??
Please help if poss,
Mr K.

Re: Unable to record sound with the ADVC100

S-Video cables carry only video. You still need to connect the red/white RCA plugs for audio.

Hello, I suppose you used the factory software suite. For my Pinnacle card it didn't work. Besides the obvious remove/uninstall reboot and try again method I recommend you try a third party application such as Honestech TV Plus Gold. It has a free trial so it is a good way to check whether it is a software problem or other installation issue.

Good luck!

Hi chandru4ni
If you have a video or dvd recorder , connect it to the scart or analog output , using the recorder tuner . It might work . I'm afraid there is no other way in your situation .

No analog signals thru ADVC100

Canopus customer support just wrote me back with the bad news: "If all 3 lights are on, then the unit has failed. We no longer
manufacture or repair ADVC 100's (they are almost 7 years old now). You
would need to purchase the newer ADVC 110 as a replacement."

Capturing video & audio through s-video input .

Hi, try this, go to control panel-click sound and audio devices and ensure that your system is configured to the right devices for recording from your camera. The easiest way to run any of this equipment is to set all systems at default. and purchase a USB sound/video adaptor [cheap from china] and plug your camera into this when you wish to record from it. when finished, remove the adaptor the same as you would with any USB hot swap device, your computer will revert to the default settings. Next time you use your camera , plug it in and windows will auto detect it again. Goodluck. mistyman

Could use some help

Hi, Try this trick to get around Microsofts silly habits. [We all have come across them somewhere] Open "my documents" create a new file, name it to suit your video, plug your camera/player in and run the video into the created file. Then simply send the file as an attachment in an email. Ensure you tell the person you send it to exactly which program you used, so when they open it window's does not get confused. This can be done from MS PowerPoint/ MS Office and several others. Goodluck. mistyman

I'm guessing that you have it connected via a 6pin firewire on the ADVC100 to a 4pin firewire on your macpro. The device needs to be connected via 6pin to 6pin in order for the device to get power, otherwise you'll have to buy a AC adapter (which is not included). Otherwise it's a great device for DV conversion on multiple platforms!
