Cheap but tricky,
I purchased this to try to capture some old VHS tapes and then burn to DVD. The instructions are awful. Since my old VCR can only reproduce a maximum of 270 lines, I did the following: Load the Easycap driver on my XP machine. Insert the Easycap into a USB 2.0 port (without the extension). Go to System in Control Panel and Hardware and locate Imaging device and insure that it is there. Next (don't even load their old software) run Windows Movie Maker, click capture device, go to camera settings and make sure you have NTSB-m selected. Next click video settings (I used 320x240 good enough for my VHS), and continue following instructions to capture your movie.
Note: I did NOT get this to work on my Vista machine!

It sounds like you want to transfer something from (to) xbox to (from) laptop. This device is used to capture video (composite yellow cord) from an older device (camera, TV, VCR). If you have composite video out on your xbox, yes you can use it to "capture" a video file. An easier way may be to directly connect the xbox and laptop. I'm not familiar with the I/O connectors on a xbox.

Hi, I hate to ask such a stupid question but do you plug the cords into the 'input' or 'output'? I'll be using it on my vcr. Thanks so much. :o)

The OUTPUT of your VCR (yellow) is connected to the Easycap yellow for the video and the corresponding red & white for stereo audio (just use white left for mono). Good luck.

I agree, it does not work on Vista ! I will be trying to return this product (which could be a FAKE of the real EZcap) !!!

Thanks! AMCap worked great. I had to use the #2 Video port to get it to work for some reason.
