Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

2 days ago my dazzle was working fine. I was able to record just fine. But then yesterday I noticed that when I recorded a video the sound was way off and the clips lagged really badly. Now whenever I try to record (with Pinnacle Studio 12) it gives me a message saying, " A valid input signal has not been detected. Please check your cables." I've unplugged my dazzle from my USP port multiple times blowing in both and it still doesn't work

(1)Uninstall the driver from your computer for dazzle by going to my computer right clicking it and then clicking "Manage" in pop up menu. Then click device manager. This for Windows.
(2) Reinstall the driver for dazzle
(3) If this does not work.out get your dazzle device serviced so it gets clean and tuned
(4) if this does not work out then be suspicious about your Video and audio cards.
(5) Try reinstalling Audio/Video drivers..

Dazzle audio problem

Very common problem with their software - they try to force you to purchase better stuff. For starters, try Corell Video Studio to see if it works better - it has a free 30 day trial period. I use it, and find that it is among the better packages to use.

When recording your video using the dazzle and it shows fast forward in motion I would suggest to you to go ahead and record it again but this time disconnect your dazzle and reconnect at the back of the usb port of the computer and from there check and try recording again.
If still the same problem you need to uninstall your device driver. Click on start>control panel>system>hardware>device manager>sound video and audio preferences>look for pinnacle dvc 100 video device right click and uninstall it. Restart the computer. Go back and check and record it again.

Losing Audio Halfway Through Recording

The audio failure sounds more like a VHS player failure than a DVD software/recorder failure. Both audio and video are transferred at the same time to the DVD, and as long as the DVD recorder is working, that's really all there is. I would check the VHS player and confirm that the sound actually works all the way through.
