      Comments about Diamond Multimedia Diamond VC500 One-Touch Video Capture USB 2.0:

      I digitized an old VHS tape using this on a Windows 7 Dell Laptop. No problems except that it appeared to be scrambled while I was recording it, but the actual captured video was exactly as it appeared on the VHS tape.

      Software was not intuitive but meets minimum needs for easily capturing the video, doing simple editing, and producing a DVD with menus.

            Instructions were pretty much useless. I never did get the thing operational. After a call to tech support they advised me to return it. Ended up ordering a higher quality unit from a different company. Radio Shack was pretty decent about the entire transaction but it is not a quality piece of e1uipment.

              Comments about Diamond Multimedia Diamond VC500 One-Touch Video Capture USB 2.0:

              Have been wanting to convert old analog videos, vhs tapes, etc. to digital for years. In the past this entailed capture cards, compatibility issues, etc. A recent web search turned up this device, which uses USB 2.0. It works VERY well overall. The included software is very good. It includes ArcSoft Show Biz which is their version of Movie Maker, but better. The only problem is after about a half hour of "crunching" it seems to get a little warm and quality seems to degrade a bit. A small fan on the black unit fixed this. Overall a fantastic buy at the price. DO NOT hesitate to get this unit!

                  Comments about Diamond Multimedia Diamond VC500 One-Touch Video Capture USB 2.0:

                  I bought this product because I was looking for a relatively inexpensive capture device that I could use to record my video game system directly onto my computer. I still wanted a reasonably good video output though.

                  It's only compatible with Windows computers (xp and up). No support for Mac. But I'm ok with that because I am using Windows 7 Ultimate N. It runs great IF you have all your media components installed. Make sure your computer is up to date in all aspects! Otherwise of course it won't work(which I learned the hard way)! Don't blame it on the device. Once you get your computer fully running and up-to-date, this device should work perfectly fine.

                  If you are unhappy with the video output quality at first, try changing your video format. AVI looks the best, but it might take up more memory than the other ones.

                  The Capture software for the device works great, but the ULead editing software is really annoying because it won't record audio through the device. However, you CAN record the footage through the capture software and then import it for editing into ulead. Even though it can't capture correctly, it's still a really nice easy to use editing software. Great for beginning editors!

                  Overall, this is an amazing product for consumers. Inexpensive and easy-to-use, this device makes it super easy to record from your game console or camera directly to your computer.

                        So far I have been able to copy from DVD's and videos. The video editing took a little time to figure out but it was worth it. The still captures from video are very nice.

                        If you get "noise" at the bottom of your video, stop, close out the program and re-start.

                          I've tried to install this twice with no success. The VC500.EXE does not reopen itself when the installations are complete.

                          The "back" buttons don't work.

                          The user manual does not depict what the software install actually is doing (or not).

                          One-touch video capture won't play any saved vidoes; it has an open file button but when I press "play" only the audio plays - no video.
