I'm trying to get a simple video capture setup going to record video from a VCR into my PC. I have an ATI TV Wonder 600 that I'm borrowing from someone, but the problem is I can't get the drivers or software figured out to actually use the hardware because it's no longer supported on their site.

So if I want an inexpensive way to capture video, which device is best and which software is best to go with it. I don't need anything fancy or professional, just something that works well and doesn't cost much.

Pinnacle Dazzle is good for $50. I'll assume this VCR is composite only since, you know, it's a VCR.

You can use the Pinnacle Studio it comes with or download a program called AmarecTV. It takes a bit of setting up, but it's easier to use in the end, and has a bit more flexibility.
Gee, it sure is boring around here. *rolls eyes*

Thanks, that looks like just what I'm looking for.

Actually, the VCR is a combo unit with a DVD recorder, so it also has component video out that displays whatever is output through the unit. I have my old Nintendo game systems hooked up to it so I can play them on my HDTV with the clearest possible picture (not HD, but better than composite).
