    The Problem is Probably because Virtual dub needs VFW Drivers to capture , and your Card Probably uses WDM Drivers, The Way Virtual Dub tries to fix this is it use a VFW/WDM Wrapper that sort of Tries to Fool V-Dub into thinking that your Drivers are VFW But it doesn"t allways work Especially with Proprietary Drivers that Come with Most Capture Cards...If your Card Use a BT8*8 Decoder chip then you can install Genaric drivers called "BTWinCap" Drivers which will have a Better chance of working with Virtual Dub...You might be better off useing something like "Virtual VCR" to Capture cuz it is a WDM Capture Program and it has a Lot of the Same Features as V-Dub and some that are even better and it is Freeware...Cheers
