Do carefully follow the installation instructions and ensure that you install the driver from the CD. I cannot figure out what the issue is, but there you go. Returned it for the Diamond VC You even have the ability to manipulate your picture, sound and images.

It does not support HD video, but if your device has RCA composite connections, the Diamond Video Capture allows you to view it on your computer screen. I tried both cable configurations, S-video never worked at all, and composite gave me double image. If you aren’t technically savvy, get a friend who is to help with the installation. Fortunately, they included a copy of ArcSoft Showbiz software that will work. I gave up and purchased replacement software from Amazon.
