Re: Stand Alone Capture Cards by Jeremy Balcazar on Mar 1, 2002 at 6:59:39 pm
Well some capture cards are graffix and capture. I just want one that is built for the sole purpose of capturing video only. It could be USB or "firewire". Some of the products they have at fry's are pinnacle and dazzle...ewwww I have the dazzle and Adobe Premeir does not regognize this device as compatable. I just got the Sony Digital 8 camera and it has USB and firewire, but when I want to record the movie from PC to camcorder it does not work.
I had to buy another card for my B system. I paid $55 for a Pyro on my A setup, and figured firewire is firewire. Nope. I bought one at my local computer geek shop for $20. Exchanged it for another, and then another. It was locking up my browser. I ended up getting another Pyro at Circuit City instead of driving and losing my parking space.
My $50 card now costs me $70 and about 5 or 6 hours of my time. Just wasn't worth it. If I didn't toss the cheapo out the window (literally), I'd mail it to you.
By the way, Pyro cards are very reputable and work with everything.
