Question Problems with USB Video Capture EasyCAP-DC60
Hi, I have bought the EasyCap DC60 USB Videograbber; but it doesn't work for me (Windows Vista). It is installed properly, system says it's working... but when I select this video source in Ulead Video Studio, I get the following message (translated from German, so the exact wording might me different...):

"Could not initialize video capture plugin. It might me used by another program, or the file was moved to another location. Error trying to open the driver. Cannot create video capture filter."

I have re-installed the driver... no change.
Video Studio works fine for me with other video sources - e.g. my DV camera over firewire. So there doesn't seem to be an issue with Video Studio installation.

One other aspect... the little green LED on the DC60 doesn't flash or anything... should it do anything? What is it for?

Would be great if anyone has an idea on how to get this working...

Are the drivers and software that you installed approved for Vista or are they XP versions?

If XP, go to the web site and see if the OEM has Vista versions available for download.

Hi DaveA,
yes, the drivers are Vista versions - at least, the box says explitly that it is Vista compatible... and the drivers were installed directly from the CD that came with the video grabber...

Hi Ankna
I have the same problem, when I try to install the EasyCAP, Vista says that it cannot find the driver and asks for the disk, even though the disk is loaded.
Vista then goes off to find a solution and takes me to MS Technical Information
"KB 940199 update for Vista" (even though my copy is up to date with SP1 and all current updates), this update faiuls to install saying "Update does not apply to your system"
Does anyone have any ideas where to go next?
Best regards
Gavin

Sure looks as though we have all wasted money on the EasyCAP

Thanks Dave. I downloaded the stk1160 file and did as the instructions said. It appears to have worked, at least I didn't get " cannot find the driver" message. I have not tried video capture yet but it appears we have a step in the right direction.
p.s. I'm on Vista Home Premium x64
Best regards
Gavin
