Cannot get sound or colour to work
I had exactly the same problem and solved it by updating the drivers for the USB sound/audio device.
My XP version is in Swedish so I´m not sure what it says in English, but it should say something like the following.
Go to the "Device manager" by right clicking on "This computer" and
choosing "Properties", locate the "USB sound/audio device" under the
"Sound, Video and Game"-category and right click and chose "Update
drivers". Then chose "Search for drivers on the internet" and chose
My new drivers are called "USB EMP Audio Device". They work perfectly. Of course you have to chose these drivers under "Options/Input source".
I wasn´t able to update the actual EasyCap video adapter, but it
doesn´t seem to matter if you´re having problems with the sound.
Click on "File", then "Preferences" then "Capture" flap, check the "Allow access to capture device´s settings" box, click "OK". Go the the "Capture" flap in the main window and chose "Capture video". Now you should see "Options", click and chose "Capture properties", then "Video capture filter", click "Properties" in the same window and the chose the correct "Videostandard", for example "NTSC" for USA and "PAL" for Europe. Try all of the alternatives until you get a picture.
Make sure you have chosen the right input source under "Options (see above/Input source". Chose Composite or S-video (you´re likely using composite). I can´t use an S-videocable, only a videocable, otherwise the
picture turns black and white.
Now you should see something, if not, maybe something went wrong when you installed the drivers/software.
Hope this helps!
