Question about Pinnacle Dazzle DVD Recorder

1 Answer

Hi, I purchased a Dazzle DVD Recorder in 2007, shortly before I retired and moved to Spain. I used it once or twice in 2007 to start to transfer films from an old analogue camcorder onto my computer. I now want to get stuck into this but I can't get my new computer to recognize the device. The box says that a DVD was included in the package but I cannot find this, or my receipt. I have since moved to France. So in to moves,covering three countries, I seem to have lost these items. Firstly, the Dazzle box says it is for Windows XP, whereas my new computer has Windows 7 Home Premium. Will it still work, and secondly, without the software will I have to buy a complete new Dazzle DVD Recorder, or can I just purchase new software?

    Good Evening, and thank you for replying so quickly. Before I proceed I should add that the hard disk on my old computer has broken and the info cannot be extracted, so and software for Dazzle on my old computer is lost. Secondly, the device manager on my new computer says that the dazzle device does not have a driver, but Windows is unable to find one.

    HI Rajdeepdutta

    Two comments on your answer:

    1. As I said before I now live in France, so I am unable to go to the shop in Kingston, UK, where I purchased the device from. So any solution will need to be one that can be downloaded from the Net.

    2. I have the DELL disk that came with my new computer THREE MONTHS ago, so all relevant drivers should be on the disk, but ALSO ON THE COMPUTER. However, the device manager cannot find the driver for the Dazzle.

    So, since I am here in rural France, and cannot get into the shop in the UK, how do I proceed, or is it not possible?

    Regards

    Graham

    Hi Rajdeepdutta

    Sorry to come back to you again on this. I think it is just a matter of clarification, and I list below questions, which if you can answer, should help close the matter:

    1. You say that dazzle doea not work on Windows 7. You then refer to 'firmware' that needs updating. Question. Does this mean getting a new CD /DVD with software on, or do you mean I need to buy a complete new Dazzzle DVD Recorder?
    2. Is it dazzle who will provide the driver for their device, and if it is, then won't that be on the CD/DVD mentioned above?
    3. Finally, if I understand you correctly, you are saying that I can only solve this problem by actually going into a shop that sells dazzle. There is no computer shop within 100km of where we live here in France, and I don't speak French, and as I will not be in the UK anytime this year, it would seem that the equipment I have is useless and I should forget all about it, because if I cannot buy anything online to download then I cannot proceed. Please confirm this tobe the situation.

    Regards

    Graham

    Not really, but this seems to be because of a communication problem.

    However, no need to continue, so I accept the answer so that my payment can made. Matter closed.

    My dear friend, you can visit any of the Dazzle outlet for updating. Dell Disk is made for PC not for the DVD recorder. I say s you need to update DVD recorder firmware which is only possible to repair center or shop. We can not update it at home. This is not your computer problem.

    Hi Graham, see what i mean. This device already you used with your old PC Set up right? Now some how the PC driver damaged and thats why you buy a new set up which is come with windows 7 operating system. Every device have there own firmware. Your Dazzle also have that which is supporting Windows XP not in Windows 7. So you have 2 choice. 1. update the firmware of the dazzle device

I have a dazzle dvc 100 rev:1.1. i am trying to transfer homemade videos from hi-8 onto dvd, but it wont let me. what could be the problem ? i have lost the cd it came with


Check the version of your software. You'll need version 2.6.1 if you're trying to use Vista or Windows 7. Older versions of the Dazzle software will not work with XP 64 bit, Vista or 7. This link will take you directly to the Pinnacle download page for the updater package if that's what you need.

Hi-8 capture often requires using a Firewire connection instead of USB. Check the device's details to see if that may be the issue.

Hope that's helpful.

Welcome to fix yah,

Your IDVDR icon is corrupted I would suggest to you to delete that one. Go ahead and click on start button on your windows click all program click on Pinnacle instant dvd recorder. Let me know if that is working.
If working go back to your all program right click on instant DVD recorder click on send to desktop.

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.
