Re: Dazzle DVC 80
ok i just joined...
but i can confirm that the dazzle dvc80 works under vista. i just did it and im transferring video with audio to my pc under vista ultimate.
im using roxio video wave 10 from media creator.
but i did install the driver from pinnicle that says it will work up to xp.
its not hard but follow these steps, and ignore all these people that are saying it wont work, and throwing them out.
the problem, the install is not compatible with vista, so you change the compatibility of the file to xp pro. its easy here:
1. download the driver from pinnacle, its: PCLEUSB.exe
2. dont install it yet
3. right mouse click
4. hit the 'compatibility' tab
5. check the 'run this program in compatabilty mode for:'
6. scroll and select 'windows xp (service pack 2)'
7. also check the 'run this program as an administrator box'
8. click the 'apply button'
click and run the file, its going to think its running under xp.
dont plug in the usb for the dazzle. wait for the install the driver.
when its done plug in the dazzle, it will look for the driver it will find it and will install it, since you ran the pcleusb.exe. hell the dazzle thinks its running in xp. now any software will use it and it will be in all you video software as the "dazzle dvc80" in video options and same for audio. works great, clean video and clean audio. just like new.
ps: you can change the compatbility for any program, windows could do this as far back as win 98.
