Even though I’ve uploaded a ton of videos the last three years, I am clueless when it comes to fixing problems that arise with my computer. So I need some computer related advice from anyone who is familiar with Windows Movie Maker.
Since day one, I’ve had a USB port attached from a VCR/DVD player to my computer. (I got it for $20.00 at CompUSA 3 years ago.) That’s what I have always used to transfer sports footage to my computer to make my videos. A couple weeks ago, I got a virus and I had to have all my programs reinstalled. I never unplugged my USB port. Everything is working fine now but when I go on Windows Movie Maker to try and capture footage, I get this warning…
“A video capture device was not detected. Verify that a device is turned on and connected properly, and then try again.”
I’m completely lost. My USB port was never unplugged. It’s stayed plugged in for the last 3 years so I have no idea why I’m getting this warning.
If anyone can help me out and tell me what the problem might be, I’d really appreciate it. There’s still a ton of videos I’d like to upload. Just last weekend, I got all my games together from 2004-2007 so I could make a Mike Hart tribute. But until this problem gets fixed, I can’t upload any videos because I can’t capture footage.
