    So I recently purchased a easycap capture card but after I installed the driver and software it doesn't work. I downloaded different software off the internet and it told me the device was occupied with a previous request. After all this I downloaded virtual machine and installed the usb 2.0 addition but when I try to connect the usb to the machine it says it's occupied. I went through all the troubleshooting with it to get it to recognize it but nothing worked. I'm so frustrated with this i'm about to throw the capture card away. Is there anything that I haven't tried or forgot to do. I am using windows 8 64bit and did try in compatibility mode.

    Easycap is common because they are cheap. They tend to either work, or they don't. They don't offer any support or even have a webpage with software and driver downloads. You get what you pay for.

    With that said, does it even support Win8? Compatibility mode doesn't mean anything, it's not the same as using the supported OS. The most common issue is drivers or driver conflicts.

    I only recommend quality hardware, such as Hauppauge.

    Easycap is common because most of the devices you see for sale on the internet are fakes.
