I know this is not the right forum for this thread (I dont know where to post it) but I hopefully some-one can help or move it accordingly.
I’m trying to get all our family Video’s on to my computer in order to burn them to DVD. I have connected the video to my (old) Hauppage WinTV card via the composite connector and they play fine on the computer with the WinTV2000 player program direct from the player.
However, when I try to capture them with Nero or Windows (XP) Movie Maker I get a periodic system crash (not a lock up but a blue screen and memory dump etc etc) requiring an unplug and reboot. Both Nero and Movie Maker are using the Hauppage capture device. It seems to happen whenever there is a loss of “signal” from the video (ie: a scene change) which are frequent and unpredictable with our home video’s. The blue screen of death (which I didn’t know happened with XP) threatens all sorts of damage and Lord knows what which is scary!
I would be so grateful If some-one could help me with this. I’ve been struggling with it for weeks. I suspect the Hauppage driver (its up to date). Is there an alternative driver if this is the cause?The graphics card is an Nvidia5700 with the latest driver and I’m running XP Home.
If I changed my TV card which is the best one to buy?
Thanks in anticipation.
