The best software i use is Pinnacle Studio. I use it to record xbox gameplay. You will need to buy the software, alternatively download it at your own risk of being caught. Heres a link to download it via torrent: You will also need AmCap if you are using pinnacle. Search youtube for various tutorials on them, its fairly str8 forward, but yeh i know what u mean, i was using ulead aswell at first.
Heres a video i have made in pinnacle :
Hope this helps.
P.s sony vegas is very good for editing!

Xbox360 Recording Problem (With DVD Recorder)

FixYa, stop asking me to fix Xbox 360 problems, I DON'T OWN ONE NEVER HAVE. Also I don't care about other people's problems, just mine.

Problems Go Through the Roof for Xbox 360 Vs. Wii

Here at FixYa, we have our community members solve problems dealing with all kinds of devices. I had a recent problem with my Xbox 360 and when I checked at the amount of problems associated with Video Games Console, I came to a surprising discovery:

Complaints about Xbox 360 Vs. Nintendo Wii

The Amount of Problems and Complaints about Xbox 360 is almost 3X the that of the Nintendo Wii.

Some might claim that the higher number of flaws in the 360 is due to the fact that it was introduced to the market a year and a half before the Wii, causing the average age of a 360 console to be older than the average Wii.

However this fact is somewhat offset when looking at the number of consoles out there – As of today there are 30% more Wii than Xbox360, much more Wii consoles to break down.

A 3X difference is really shocking, but I still thought it couldn't be as bad as it seemed. I thought the problems must be from people complaining about some trivial issues, but when I actually checked the Top problem on the Xbox, I found this:

The Red Circle Of Death:

Condition: When you turn on the Xbox you get a blank screen, a clack sound and 3 red lights on the front start that flash.

Result: Death. Or not being able to do anything with your Xbox.

Other frequent problems:

Showing picture but no sound – TV goes blank but you can still hear sound

2 red lights – XBOX turns off – Console is overheated and stops working.

Error E74 – Hardware malfunction – System hardware problem.

XBOX not reading Games – Lens gone bad.

Seriously? Those are some mean problems!

I checked what the Wii's Biggest Problem was:

Wii Remote doesn’t work:

Solutions: Resync it, Slap it or just Change the batteries…

Other frequent ones:

Forgetting password – Forgetting Secret question and password.

Ejecting disk – Disk tray doesn’t open up.

Unable to get into Wii Settings – Firmware issues.

It just comes to show you that the Xbox 360 is a beast and it has a lot of beast-sized problems while the Wii is a pretty simple machine.

The Wii scores another point; just feed it fresh batteries and it’s as reliable as a good old Atari!

Diamond VC500 is not recording my Xbox 360

Mine does the same thing. I think that the problem might be that you have to go to the yellow gear thing and you have to change the recording format to DVD and you have to change the video format to NTSC_M. And make sure you have all of your hardware and your y splitters connected right

Bottom right ring blinks. No audio/video works. Tried multiple TV's & multiple audio/video cords. What's wrong??

The most likely cause is a hardware problem with your Xbox.

Your best option is to contact Xbox support at 1800 469 9269 and open a support case. Say the word "Agent" when the recording begins to play so you can get connected to a real person.

If your Xbox is still under warranty, Msoft will repair it for free. If it's not under warranty, the repair will cost $99 - $120.
