  • 1. Sony Dcr-Trv120 and Firewire Issue
    The issue I'm having is I recently purchased a DCR-TRV120. I have some video on tape I'd like to try copying to the PC. I have a Abit NF7 board which has Firewire onboard. I am using WinXP Sp2. I connect the camcorder via Firewire cable (4pin - 6pin) and windows detects the device, but returns the error; "USB device not recognized". I have read the owners manual for the camera from end to end, there's precious little on connecting to a PC. I have been to Abit's website and have downloaded/installed the latest drivers for my board. I still recieve "USB Device Not Recognize" when I try to connect the camcorder. Is there a specific driver I need to install for my camera to get XP to "recognize" it? I know it see that's it's connected, but has no clue what it is. That's the issue. Any help will be appreciated.

  • 3. How can a VOB file be converted to a media file?
    I have some home video on DVD. I drag and dropped several of the files to my hard drive because I need to edit them for a presentation. None of my video editing applications recognize the files, so I need to convert them from VOB to some other sort of media file (avi, or something) in order to finish my project. I'm obviously brand new at this. If anyone has any helpful information, I'll gladly receive it. Thanks a ton in advance for any and all help. Best regards and blessings, Stoney
  • 4. No sound to video
    I can capture video from my analog video camera but I can't get the sound to play. My camera has two ports one for video and the other for audio. What do I need to do to get the sound from the tape to capture as well as the video?
  • 5. VCR to Computer
    I just bought a Gateway 825GM and am trying to hook up the VCR to copy home movies to DVD. I FINALLY got something, one frozen image and that's it. I have an AverMedia MPEG Video Capture card. I've tried hooking it up anyway I could think of. Could this be a software problem with Windows MovieMaker or a connection problem? I'm using a coaxial cable to connect the 2, changed the settings from cable to TV antenna, still nothing! Gateway is of NO help whatsoever.

Trident Video won't install

Postby Christie » Thu, 16 Oct 2003 13:01:21 GMT

I have a NVidia GeForce2 MX-400 video card on my 
computer. When it detected, it also detected the Trident 
Video Accelerator Blade 3D/ProMedia. I went and got the 
drivers for it, but all I get when installing it 
is "Cannot Install Hardware". I have deleted it in Device 
Manager and had it redetect, but i get the same thing. My 
computer display goes blank after a while because of this 
driver that won't install and the only way I can get my 
display back is to reboot. Any thoughts? Thank you in 
advance! You may also e-mail suggestions to my work e-

You need to go into the BIOS and disable the onboard graphics if the BIOS
has not automatically disabled them on insertion of the AGP card.

3.Laptop Trident Cyberblade i7 video card and projector

I have a Compaq Presario 1200XL that is used primarly for 
PowerPoint slide shows. I recently upgraded it from it's 
original Win98 OS to W2K Pro SP3.

The problem I have now is I can't view my screen on the 
laptop display and an external projector/monitor at the 
same time.

If I boot with the projector/monitor connected, the the 
projector/monitor works just fine but the laptop display 
is blank <the function F3 key doesn't respond>. 

If I boot with no external display the laptop display 
works fine but I can't view the external projector/monitor 
<again the function F3 key doesn't respond>.

Compaq/HP tech support was of no help. They suggested a 
new Trident video driver that wouldn't install.

I'm at a loss as to what to try next. Any help would be 
greatly appreciated.

5.smc wifi conflicts with trident video

I have a conflict between
* TRIDENT VIDEO ACCELERATOR BLADE 3D/MVP4 (driver version: 5.1.2001.0) = 
* an SMC PCI wifi card (model: SMCWPCI-G)

If both devices are enabled my machine (running winxp) won't boot. It hangs 
before the login screen is shown.
If I disable one of them there is no problem. However, if I re-enable the 
disabled device after boot, my machine will hang within 5 minutes.
As far as I know I am running the latest drivers. I have reinstalled winxp 
(thus: it s not a SP2 matter or virus or malware thing -> it s a neat, clean 
machine) but the problem persists. 

I suspect it s a PCI conflict, although video and wifi are assigned a 
different IRQ. BTW, the wifi card replaces an old ethernet card in the same 
The problem is that I do not know how to determine the cause. The F8 boot 
logging option does not give appropriate info, the event logger shuts up when 
the machine hangs.
I don't feel like spending two days installing some linux distro to 
determine whether it s OS related. 

If anyone has a suggestion?
