Firstly i have done a search and read lots but cant find what i am looking for.
Ok here goes i have an ati radion all in wonder 9800 card in my pc. I have linked up my video camera (tape type) using the leads supplied. I can get sound when using the software but no actual video on screen on the pc. Any ideas?

I get as far as "capture from video device" it then does nowt and i have to close the program down and open it up again. I dont think it can see the camera.

Not getting as far as that must be a driver missing or something
