    I used to use the Dazzle DVC80 capture device, and when I first installed it, it had no sound. The fix was in a FAQ on the Dazzle site, they apparently forgot to register a DLL and it resulted in no sound. I'd start there and see if there's some insights into your issue.

    As far as the quality, I found the Dazzle DVC80 to have lousy quality, that's why I use something else now. :)

    i only have usb 1.1

    BTW I strongly recommend getting a USB 2.0 card if your going to go with USB attached capture devices. you want the higher throughput to get better quality and less dropped frames.

    See here -
    USB 1.1 - 12Mbps
    USB 2.0 - 480Mbps

    Also remember USB is a shared bus so if you have alot of USB attached devices you can start to have problems there too if they are all going at the same time.

    I.E. if you have a usb scanner, printer camera, card reader, and mouse and keyboard and your printing at the same time as scanning a document and downloading pictures to your card reader from your camera and multitasking with your mouse and keyboard you may notice your video capture get worse at that point. (Though most people don't tax their system that much you get the picture).
