    Hey, this is my first post here, and I'm not positive on whether or not this is the right place to be posting this, so if not, please tell me where it should be. Thanks!

    Anyways, basically I have spent countless hours getting nowhere with this video capture thing. All I want to do is play my Nintendo Wii, and somehow get it recorded onto my computer into digital video. My computer is new with Windows Vista, is HP, and has many functions, some of which I don't even know what they do. But anyways, back to the main point.

    Whenever I plug the Wii's AV cables into my computer, i get this message (on various capture programs such as DScaler, WMM, and Sony Vegas)

    "The device 'Hauppauge WinTV 418 Video Capture' could not be opened. Please make sure that it is turned on and is not being used by another application or user."

    What's really weird is that I have been able to play my Wii on the computer before, but one day, it just said that, and since then, no programs will take my AV things. Furthermore, I have tried connecting my VCR to the computer, and to no avail, I get the same message.

    Does anyone know what is wrong??? I'm really confused, and this thing has been driving me up the wall.

    Thanks for any help.

    P.S. I don't have a digital camera or camcorder, so don't bother asking.
