Capture and Convert Video Like A Pro!

The “Composite to USB Video Capture Cable” works exactly as expected! I use this to transfer my old home movies and tapes to my computer and I love this device! I did have a small problem in first using the cable in updating drivers. However, StarTech.com technical support was able to help me resolve it easily. They answered my questions and addressed my concerns quickly, in a very professional and user-friendly manner. An unexpected and pleasant surprise was their outstanding follow-up. I am very pleased I purchased this device from StarTech.com. Other companies could learn how real sales and technical support works by calling StarTech.com!

I purchased this product, hoping it would meet all my expectations...sadly, it never gave me the chance to see if if worked.. after 4 hours of trying to download/install the drivers for it.. it finally told me it wasn't "compatible with the system"... I am running Windows 8.1.. so, despite the claim that it will work with that O/S.. it won't.. when I can afford to upgrade my O/S.. I will purchase this item again and see if it works.

I purchased the USB video converter to convert my VHS tapes to digital but I guess it is not compatible with Windows 8. Any suggestions?

Works Great

Simple install and works great to capture analog video. Just make sure device is connected to a USB 2.0 or 3.0 port. USB 1.1 port will cause dropped frames during capture.
