I know that most, if not all of you will insist on a PCI capture over a USB device any day. Now I’m overly excited about doing some capturing of VHS tapes onto my computer, sooooo
yesterday I purchased the SIIG USB 2.0 VIDEO CAPTURE DEVICE (JU-AV0012-S1). This has two Audio-Right and left, S-Video, and one Video RCA connectors.
I proceeded to do the install. First it prompted me to plug the USB device in the slot, NEW HARDWARE FOUND popped up, Inserted the Install CD, during this process, a window popped up,
â€œThe file tridvid.sys" was needed and not foundâ€.
I went back into the CD folder
32 BIT/DRIVERS and found that file and it installed it. Fine.
Then another message came up asking for a needed file named “acpinfo.ax”. (Which is an Analog Copy Protection Notifier file) I went to Microsoft, searched, but could not find.
This “acpinfo.ax”. file was not on the list of drivers or apps. on this install CD.
I went to Device Manager/Sound, video, game controllers, and noticed a yellow tag next to â€œTrident Analog Videoâ€. Under Properties of this folder,â€Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)â€
Also, at some time during install another message came up telling “This product can not be used with this platform”? WHAT?
Package says, System requirements:
XP (32-/64-bit) I have the 32Bit XP
I contacted SIIG support and he told me that I should install from the website, which I did after the third attempt off the CD, but still get the error messages.
All I want to do is capture some VHS tapes to my computer, edit, and burn to DVD. Never thought I would have this many problems. Prior to buying this generic, basic looking, editing software device, I almost bought a Haupaugh 1600 PCI card for $80.00 @ Best Buy or Frys.
