whocrazy Posted May 12, 2005 Share Posted May 12, 2005 1, 2 there's problems for you3, 4 it's called murphy's law5, 6 there's no quick fix7, 8 it's bill gates you should hate9, 10 so you're stuck then!Thats how it's been for the last 48 hoursI got a tv capture card for my birthday, only to find the usb device runs under xp.adding to the difficulty's, the manuals are written in poor english, and the readme file in the root folder on the cd mentions windows 98x drivers but if you read further, you can see that it only relates to the nvidia drivers! aaaarrrrrg!!I am totally blind and use some special adaptive software to hear what is on the screen, and I keep hearing bad things about xp, so I am scared to upgrade to it just now, so an internal tv capture card is well and truely out of the question.oh yes, I suppose you're wondering what the hell a blind guy would want with a tv capture card?Well, think about it. we dont have silent films or silent news reports, do we?and if I record something I have many sighted net friends who I can upload the clip to who can tell me what is happening, IE with documentaries and such. Soooooo. Does anyone know of an external usb or firewire card that will run under 98se or am I really that much out of luck? surely there's gotta be something available for it. They just can't leave us in the lurch like this. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
