I bought a TV card to transfer VCR to computer from which I would have created DVDs.
The card has a single circular socket rather like the plugs we used to have on a mouse. I was sold a cable that has three jacks at each end: red, yellow & white plus a converter that took these jacks & had one of these circular plugs on the other end.
Pictures transferred OK but no sound.
I am being told that I need another cable for the sound - the converter actually has a black jack coming out of it on the end of a 9" wire.
The VCR just has the red, yellow & white sockets so where would another cable go?

You need one of these to go into the Scart on the rear of the VCR ...

Can you tell me where to get details of this device? I had the usual Google problem in that it preferred to tell me about all sorts of things with any part of the device's title. Putting it in quotes gve me the same list with Google telling me it had ignored the quotes.

The yellow is the video and white and red sound left and right.
The TV Card has a composite entry for an aerial lead and that should cover picture and sound.

I would check in Control panel sounds that the recording device is shown as your TV card. If not change it. It is probably on line in or mic.

but it doesn't cover Audio from a VCR! On my set-up the audio comes from a normal stereo audio lead, from the rear of the VCR to my Video/Audio processor, as in the pic.
