I eargely ripped open the packaging, and packaging-wise I was somewhat dismayed to find a white box in with no markings on it whatsoever. This gave me the impression that the product I got was simply a rebadged OEM edition of another branded card. No matter however, I still got the contents intact and I wasent expecting flash packaging for the price I got it for. No, this is exactly how I imagined it...
Anyhow, installation of the card was patronisingly easy and straight-forward, my 64-year old grandmother could probably do this without requring a manual. So I assembled my computer back together and booted it up.
I waited for the satisfying "Windows has detected new hardware" / "Installing new hardware drivers..." to confirm that I had done this correctly... But nothing... Not even a recognition to say it was working... Huh? What can this be? I tried the included CD to no avail (which included the manual and a PDF reader), frantically searching for drivers... (including Sweex's website) also to no avail. I read the manual and it said that with Windows 2000/XP/Vista the drivers would automatically install. Helpful?
Out of pot luck I decided to connect up my camera with a Max Value 4-pin to 6-pin cable also from Amazon (which is about as no frills as you can get) to get the baffling message "Your new hardware is ready to use" and gave me the camcorder unit name. What? How can this be?Read more ›
I got this to let me transfer video from a DV Camcorder I picked up a while ago and it works brilliantly. Cheap as chips too!
