    Comments about Pinnacle Dazzle Video Creator Plus Analog Video Capture Device:

    The enclosed editing program seems to continuously drop into error mode after about 30 seconds of capture mode from my SONY digital Handycam. It uses 8mm mini tape.

    I keep getting recommendations to download new NVIDIA visual program drivers but during this down load it does not function or correct my camera down load problems.

    The cables work fine for RCA to usb pathways.

    Comments about Pinnacle Dazzle Video Creator Plus Analog Video Capture Device:

    Followed instructions and was able to install software and hardware in a few minutes, then had my first VHS to DVD transfer done without any problem. It's a real-time transfer, but did not need any "supervision" A very satisfying alternative to sending a precious tape away and paying someone else to do it.

        I ordered this for my husband for Christmas to record his XBOX video game sessions. He bought the necessary cables and could not get the audio and video to sync up. The quality was terrible and he asked me to return it after getting no response from Pinnacle's customer service. [...] BEWARE of this one!

        I'm a still photographer, but bought this to digitize some old 8 and hi8 home videos. This works pretty well and comes with a full version 12 edition of Pinnacle software. The software is good and offers a lot for the money. Occasionally it would not recognize a camera plugged into the dazzle and I had 1 or 2 crashes. Can't say for sure if it is not a typical windows issue. Still all and all a pretty good product. 3.5 stars

                I'm still exploring how to use this. It doesn't handle long clips too well. I can't tell if it loads the whole thing and not just the pieces you're working on at the moment or what. Seems to do the job, but not built for robust video editing. And it's a power hog. 4 GB or Ram on Vista is not quite enough, even with a dual core.
