I am trying to capture my VHS collection to my H/D for eventual conversion to DVD.
So far I have tried Adobe Premier Elements 2.0 that came with my capture device (ADS Pyro A/V Link), and a freeware called Golden Videos 1.10 from a company called NCH Software.
Both VHS capture programs will intermittently crash the P/C with a 0000000A
BSOD that says IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL.
My P/C is a P-4, 3.06, with 3.0 gb of RAM on a SOYO Dragon LITE P4X400 MOBO. The PSU is a 550 Watt unit.
I have a space of 100gb on a dedicated H/D for the capture. The Pyro A/V Link talks to the P/C through a P.C.I. IEEE 1394 Firewire card. It is the only device on the card.
I am not overclocking or running any hot voltages. The P/C only BSOD’s when I run the capture.
It is very stable otherwise.
A standalone 24 hour MEMTEST ran clean.
Question/Opinion: Do I have enough P/C here to do this job, or am I behind the 8-ball?
Can anyone recommend a capture package that they use that is trouble free?
Am I barking up the wrong tree?
Thank you for any and all responses to my query.
