if the pc was bought you should have a manual with the parts listed. If you right click on computer then properties then hardware then device manager you should be able to see what you have under optical disks. Download siw [type into google] when you run the prog you will get a long list of things and you can look under hardware for optical disks. If I can help just let me know I live near Gatwick airport if you are local.
I recently purchased the EZ Grabber from amazon and i have it all installed correctly and its connected to my computer via a normal usb port does this mean i will have to purchase a USB2 converter (something along those lines) or can anyone give me any advice. Im using it to record my Xbox360 and im using component source on my TV, so when i go onto component it continues to record the normal TV in bad quality and makes a crackling noise. So i need to follow my source and record my 360 not my TV thanks in advance.
When I had my EZ Grabber, I needed a SCART adaptor to go in the back of my video recorder. This meant the red, yellow and white "plugs" could be fitted. There is a separate "plug" (black) where the red, yellow + white plugs are and you can IGNORE this!!! (confusing I know!!)
So, this lead goes from VCR to USB on computer.
You mess around with the settings on the "Grabber" (click the wheel icon) and if you are UK you make sure you have "PAL_BDHIG" showing. Press PLAY on the VCR and it should play on the computer.
I am sorry, but I have no idea about Xbox or what you are trying to do.
Most of what I have done has been SELF TAUGHT as I have found these websites totally useless when it comes to offering assistance!!!!!!!GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
