  • My version of Windows Media Technologies is not compatible with my Windows Vista. Y at - it an upgrade or a solution to this?

    I'm trying to convert VHS to DVD via my computer. I bought an ACQUISITION VIDEO & AUDIO USB card and I'm having the problem. It is coming that my version of Windows Media Technologies is not compatible with my version of Windows (Vista).

    Hi Als01,

    1. which video application do you use to convert?

    First check if the ACQUISITION VIDEO & AUDIO USB card is compatible with Windows vista by using the Compatibility Center.

    http://www.Microsoft.com/Windows/compatibility/Windows-Vista/default.aspx

    If you use any application uninstall and reinstall and check if it works.

    You can also check whether a third-party program is causing the conflict with the application.

    To help resolve the error and other messages, you can start Windows Vista by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This type of boot is known as a "clean boot". A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.
