Instructions and software install process was not the easiest. However customer support was great at going all fixed for me. And now it is working very well. Easy to use once installed.

this Item did the trick, it works well and is easy to use but lacks just a few features on the software side like being able to pause your recording session but I like it overall

This did not work for me.

The VC500 did not work and the software keeps crashing. My system specs are correct and we are Computer technicians with over 48 year in the business. Bad Stuff which we have now thrown in the too hard basket.

DIAMOND VC500 A WASTE OF MONEY.

We are photo & video experts and qualified computer technicians and in the business for over 49 years. We purchased this Video capture card with Power director software mostly as an experiment but would have purchased another six if it worked. The capture card would not work on a high end PC at all and the next day it had disappeared off the machine. Our PC matched the system requirements. The software loaded ok but crashed after the capture when switching to the edit mode. We did reinstall all of this a couple of times but in the end we gave up. I have contacted Cyberlink the power director people twice about a week ago without any reply to date. I have not bothered to contact Diamond Media and have now placed the whole lot in the Useless Product bin. Certainly not happy with the Diamond capture card or the software. Regards Ted

good purchase

Welp, I have bought 2 of these things in hopes of doing the VHS to DVD shuffle & I have to say I'm not exactly happy with this device. Setting up the drivers is quite painful. Now this could very well be because it uses Conexant drivers and they're not known to work very well with Win 10 (if at all). On top of that I got what appears to be the Chinese knock-off version as the serial #/sticker on the back doesn't even slightly match the sticker shown on Diamond's site. Then there is the Shenzhen Geniatech Technology designed driver label (within the device manager) which just screams in my ear. No software, even the included, works in capturing a signal from your component device - it/both literally stopped working. After only getting in about a dozen VHS tapes I rely have a hard time recommending this item. But, if you can get it functional, it does a very good job grabbing the image.

question

Can this device help to transfer video from Sony PD-150?
Asked by: Lim N.
This will take the signal from the the PD-150 to the computer's USB input. If your computer can take a Thunderbolt connection, you will get better results with this connector. Apple Thunderbolt To Firewire Adapter B&H # APMD464LLA.

I've used other vhs to digital converters from amazon and I get red blue and green lines across the screen during the entire tape, but when I watch the tape directly on a tv that doesn't happen. Does this capture device have that issue at all or does it look clear with good color?
Asked by: Richard
That is not normal it sounds like you got some products that were defective. The Diamond VC500 One Touch USB Video & Audio Capture for Windows will record the video without producing any lines or bars. What you get from this capture device should match what you had on the tape and saw on your television.

What quality is the audio if captured from a CD ...

What quality is the audio if captured from a CD or DVD player via the 3.5mm output jack. Will you have CD quality saved from a CD player?
Asked by: David
Depending on the software you are using to capture, you should be able to bring in uncompressed .wav files, thus maintaining the quality of the original stream of audio.

Does this device also converts audio such as from cassette, CD, etc?
Asked by: Leyton
This can capture audio, but it would make a video file first. You would need to the convert to just an audio file. This really would not be the right choice for just audio.
