I'm using an ASUS laptop with an AMD Vision E2 processor with Windows 7. Recently I wanted to use my old ADS DVDXpress USBAV701 again to import old analogue Hi8 video's in a digital form, but W7 does recognise the hardware, there is no W7 driver software available. Used this equipment before on a PC running in XP and it worked fine. So I did think this is a typical problem to solve with VMLite.
Finally I installed VMLite 4.2 and I was able to install the application in the XP box and I established a link to the USB hardware, which was recognised in the XP box. If I start the application, I get the error message that it cannot connect with the USB hardware. It also indicated to check the power and the USB cable connection. They were both OK. Trying to install the proper XP driver trough the XP mode did not work at all.
I have the impression that the hardware, since it is connected to the PC who runs W7, cannot in a dumb way go trough this and come 'clean' in the XP box.
Does anyone know if there is a setting in the VMLite 4.2 system, or the W7, that could arrange it that the USB port and hardware is recognised as it would be connected directly to the XP Mode? Or any other suggestion that would solve this problem.
The quick and dirty solution would be to spent 50€ and purchase new hardware. But that is challenge-less.
Thanks in advance,
