I checked the other threads..and they seem advanced for me. I've got a Video Capture card - The only name I can get off it is 'H.32x PCI'..I bought it off ebay..put it in....and haven't had many troubles - until now. I bought it with the intention of making skateboarding videos. IE. Ripping clips off the tape...editing...putting back onto a tape. I cannot do this! I've tried almost everything imagineable...and have just about come to the conclusion I need more hardware. My cap. card has a 'S-Video'....mic..speaker..and the normal video plug I use. Can anyone suggest anything? I thought I had this figured out, but it's beyond me. I appreciate any help I can get..I'm hoping to get deep into this...thanks a ton.
