I am able to extract video from CD just fine.
The big issue is that SOME of the DVDs come out very "RED"...
I have tried different dip switch settings.
This problem does not seem to be related to how old the DVD is.
Some NEW titles work fine..some have the red saturation.

DVDs and CDs are specific to that media. For instance an audio CD must be extracted to a file (mp3, wav...). Copying will only create a shortcut in Windows. DVDs are VOB files if it seems them. Then you may need a player with the correct CODEC to access the file, or again be extracted to avi, mp4... You also have the problem for DVDs having security measures. You will have to use 3rd party software to remove the encryption if it can. Some are just too tough to remove.
I had this same problem. Took it back and got my money back. Was trying to use with iMovie. Was told I needed at least the ADVC300 (also known as Canopus). Not sure why, but the 300 did the trick. Could be other problems, though. Maybe your firewire is bad, or the port on the computer. Or the connectors you're using between the VCR and converter. I hope it isn't too late to exchange any of the equipment you bought. Usually it's 14 days for these things. Good luck! It is hard to pin down these problems!
I cannot find ADV in the manual... but it talks about an "Advanced Mode" in a number of places where different sound options are accessible. Perhaps that is the reason for the ADV... you're in Advanced Mode. It suggests that you can change from "normal mode" to "advanced mode" and vice versa when your volume level is set to 0
