Customer Questions & Answers

Customer Reviews

Once installed, the iGrabber worked great and was easy to use.
AlexQs
The installation cd was corrupted fresh out of the box, so I had to download the driver and software from the web site.

I tried to record in uncompressed audio and video and that's where it looks it's best but do not use it for gaming.

I bought this item in order to digitize some old VHS tapes of our wedding, some Hi-8 home videos of our travels, and some exercise tapes my wife wants to play from her laptop instead of a VCR. The item is very basic but provides the necessary connections to hook up our VCR to import the video footage. One of the interesting features is that it can automatically detect and work with just about any video format such as NTSC, PAL and SECAM, which is great if you have videos in more than one format. Here is the breakdown of my own experience with this product:

PACKAGING:
Professional package containing the iGrabber device, instructions, and a software installation CD-ROM. The instructions had a lot of screenshots and not much text information available for each step, but was sufficient enough for me.

INSTALLATION:
Big Problem: The software does not readily install on a Macintosh because the vendor improperly packaged the installation program - instead some error (-1) appears and the installation fails.

The Solution: Locate the Installer Package and choose Show Package Contents (right-click to see this option), you will see another package inside it with the same name pop up in a new window. Double click on that inner package item and all works as it should. The company should fix the Package within a Package problem as the average user won't figure out how to get it to install.

PERFORMANCE:
The iGrabber performed very admirably for a product at any price. I am able to import VHS and 8mm Camera video at full resolution and full frame rate with no problems. The software does sometimes have a hiccup starting the second or later recording but is resolved by restarting the application. I can accept that in a $30 product.

This came with a CD that does not include the correct drivers for a Mac (and yes, I have TWO Macs that are supposedly compatible with the software). Actually, I don't know that, because the CD won't even open.

After scouring online for the MyGica website (do NOT search iGrabber, search "MyGica"), I finally found the drivers--they hide it very well. Click the link "Video Capture" on the Left Hand side of the screen, and you will see a download for Mac.

The other problem is that once I installed the software and was asked for a serial number, the serial number to use was NOT the one they said to enter on their website! I was sweating bullets, repeatedly entering a serial number from the CD sleeve that did not work (I didn't want to have to pay postage to send it back AND a restocking fee).

Finally, I tried the serial number they said NOT to use and it worked! Jeesh!

In response to a comment --->>>***AGAIN. Do NOT follow their directions. Try any of the serial numbers you see on all the packaging. One of them will work.

Finally, if you have a Mac with a built-in camera, once you hook up the VCR and open iGrabber, go to the top menu, click on "Digitizers," and select "iGrabber."

Supposedly (after extensive research on the web), setting your Video Setting to capture as JPEG is the most reasonable capture option. And warning--test the Sound!! Increase your Gain (under the Sound (Audio) Settings) if the sound is coming out too low from your computer.

Do not expect amazing Hi-Def results from the video you've captured--not gonna happen. Artifacts will appear on the bottom of the digitized video, and I don't know if that happens with every digitizer out there or not.

It would have been REALLY NICE if the company had included a manual that was actually helpful. Why did I have to figure out all this stuff from trial and error?

I needed to transfer some old Hi-8 video and VHS to my computer. I found this and thought I'd give it a try as it was the least expensive of the options I had found. Set up took under 3 minutes. There is no manual, just a read me file (where obviously English was not a first language) but it is pretty self explanatory.

So far I have digitized one 2 hour tape from an old Sony Hi-8 (circa 1996). The video on the screen during the transfer is VERY shaky and grainy but when you're done and play it back the video is just fine. I had no issues with quality or sound on the one tape I transferred. I did not adjust ANY of the settings in the software.

Then I imported the video to iMovie and it all seems to be working fine and the quality appears to be the same as the original. (Maybe a tad bit better). I also ran other small programs (iCal, Firefox) during the transfer with no apparent issues. I'm running 10.5.8 on a 2.66GHz iMac with 2GB RAM, so nothing fancy.

It does exactly what it is supposed to do at a great price.

I received the unit earlier than expected. The packaging was great and the item was as expected, until I attempted to install. The installation DVD would not work on my mac due to an error that told me the install DVD was damaged. The Windows drivers are included and worked fine after what seemed to be a lengthy install. After searching through the very poor manual that was included, and all of the installation files, I had to exhaustively search online for the mac driver only to find it under a completely different manufacturer name. The product now works but only after finding the correct drivers. Support for this product is non existent, so if you have trouble, you need to go search for the mygica website, not the name igrabber as expected.
