Most of the XP and older drivers, and older software will not work with Vista. Contact the manufacture for your Dazzle TV to see if they have an update for your device that will work with Vista.

Start by visiting the site for Dazzle TV support to see if they have Vista downloads to update the drivers. If not then contact their tech support.

From the looks of it there's no Vista support yet. Pinnacle Systems needs to come out with somekind of patch soon. I've been looking for an hour as well. Couldn't find anything but people discussing the fact that they need the patch badly. On the Pinnacle site there's a link to software for Dazzle Video Creator 9 but it leads to an error page.

I guess you'll have to watch carefully when an update arrives.
Or try to find something of an automatic update feature in the software, maybe it'll find something.

You can try simpler programs such as Windows Movie Maker but I don't think it suits your needs when you want to edit stuff.

Another solution might be Sony Vegas.
For more information on the Sony Vegas product family, click link below:

I hope this will help you out. It's really frustrating that you buy software and then you can't use it on Vista.

I have dazzle DVC 170 Rev. 1.2. this came with the CDs for Windows XP. My new laptop (Compaq 621) is with Windows 7, I downloaded the Instant DVD Recorder. Installed it and then loaded the Pinnacle Studio...

one of the drivers is not compatible or unstable with you system. make sure you have the relevant firmware on your system, update the drivers from the driver menu that is in device manager win 10 its right click on windows logo (start) bottom left and click on the driver and update before using it if no update is available you could try the properties of the software. right click on the icon for the software and menu will pop up go to properties click on that and then go to menu compatibility and click to run on win xp mode or another mode. then press ok.
