Hi,
I am now pretty cueless and desperate. Perhaps somebody had similar problems and can help me.
I have a Duron 1,2 Ghz with 384 MB Ram and 40 GB HD. I'm using a
MSI Geforce Ti4200 with video-in and video out. OS is dual boot, WinME and W2K. On both systems I have the latest nvidia drivers installed, also
nvidia wdm capture drivers. Using virtualdub for capture, if works like charm under WinME. Under W2K I get the message "Cannot connect to
capture driver. Capture driver is already in use by WebTv ..."
After that, I get "error 418, cannot connect to capture driver".

For various reasons, I would prefer to capture under W2K. Any ideas what
the problem could be and what to do to get it working ?

Thanks a lot in advance,
Jocomo

VirtualDub doesn't work with WDM drivers in many cases. If your card has a BrookTree/Conexant chip, you might be able to use the BTWinCap drivers which should work with VirtualDub.

Boulder,
thank you for your suggestion, but:
- the card is not a TV-card but just a graphics card with video in
- it does not work with WDM-based capture either (I have already tried
the FlyDS capture software, which claims to be based on DirectShow
filters and is designed to work with W2K/XP only.
My best guess it that the capture driver thinks that the device is already
in use by another task, because of the message "... in use ...". I have
already checked with the task manager, but there are no "suspicious"
processes active ...

Any other ideas ?

Again, thanks a lot.
Cheers, Jocomo

I got the same error message when I tried capturing with Hauppauge's WDM drivers. I just thought that maybe the card has a BrookTree chip..

Have you tried VirtualVCR?
