Hi,
I am try to download my old vids to my PC using a 'Tevion dvd maker VS-USB2800D' and Roxio 9. I know i am connected to my VCR to PC ok as I can hear the sound when I am downloading thro' my PC but when it comes to playing back the downloaded vid file on the PC, I get pix but no sound??? My OS is win xp sp3. Any clues please.

Kind regards
Ian

Well I think you bought a pup (a lemon to our American friends) on this Tevian thing Jenian as I can't find any decent articles about this on the net at all.

Most people have never heard of it or if they have it's been faulty.

I can't find a proper website that deals with this.

We'll continue looking though.

Here's a quote from a particular site.

The Tevion DVD Maker setup wasn't too bad even for a greybeard. Use wasn't too bad either. but... ... what instructions? pretty bad and leaving loads unexplained. I CAN'T GET SOUND TO RECORD NO MATTER WHAT. Tevion DVD Maker is small, should be perfect - if only I could get that sound. I found that an adaptor (scart to pin) was needed AND a lead male to male as the adaptor and the Tevion both had female leads. My model is VS-USB2800D

Wolfeymole, I think you could be right. So much for buying at Aldi in 2006. I have also done a traul on the net and find that this model/name is sold rebranded/renamed over and over again. This one is going for recycling. Can you advise on the next purchase for transfering Vids to PC please.

Regards Ian

Well as just a brief look only Jenian, this looks ok.
