Default Windows 10 - installing drivers


This is a continuation of the transferring video tape to PC, in that I
now have the device, which comes with various cables, installation CD
and dire warnings to download and install drivers BEFORE plugging in the
new USB device.

Driver downloaded, and this is the dim question bit, where do I install
the driver, or does W10 just know what to do with it? Normally, I would
use Device Manager, but in this case, Windows does not yet know the
device exists.

I must be missing something obvious ...

Well normally it works in one of two ways. Either you install the drivers
that are supplied, then when you connect up the device it finds them and
puts them where it wants them, or it loads default drivers when you plug it
in, which may or may not work, and if they don't, you need to load the cd or
whatever and then ask the system to update the drivers and keep your
fingers crossed.

Did you get the startech one?

IME the direr warnings are generally overstated.

the driver


just run the setup.exe and take the defaults

Or just double click on the driver file. Win 10 recogises some types of
files as drivers.

If the computer is connected to the Internet W10 will quite likely just
find the driver it needs when the device is connected. Googling for
"Windows 10 driver install" may help you.

That’s talking about UNSIGNED drivers, a different problem entirely.

I failed (probably) and got a cheaper one. August VGB100

just run the setup.exe and take the defaults


Now reached the stage where I can see it in Device Manager under 'Sound,
Video and game Controllers', without a yellow warning triangle. Drivers
installed and 'This device is working properly'.

The device came with ArcSoft ShowBiz, so will have a play with that
tomorrow.

You should be ok, but if not there's an install video on youtube

three thngs there instructions say

1) install drivers before connecting device, what else is PnP supposed
to be for?

2) disable antivirus before installing their software

3) run the video editor "as administrator"

none are very confidence inspiring for well produced software ....

I'm flummoxed. Looking at Device Manager, I can see the device, which
is shown as working, with current drivers installed, yet I cannot 'see'
it with software - have tried the supplied Arcsoft, and Windows Movie
Maker and a freeware prog, NCH Golden Videos. Nothing.

I try with the camera on playback, two cables attached. One S-Video and
the other with a 4 way mini jack at the camera end and three RCA phonos
at the other (red, yellow and white), all connected to the device which
is USB2, plugged into laptop USB2 socket. Laptop is Lenovo, running W10
32 bit. The camera and cable must be OK, as I can play back via a TV,
using a SCART adaptor.

All this for 54 minutes of video.

Have you turned off access under the settings/privacy/camera section?
