A pop-up keeps showing whenever I plug-in the device stating that "Found USB 2681 Device" (after software completes install). I've tried invoking the Automatic Update for the driver, as well as trying to point it to the "VIDEOCAP_USB" folder on the install CD with no luck (obligatory reboots after each driver install-attempt, too). I've also downloaded and installed the latest driver from the last link above, which is provided by Roxio, with no dice, either. None of the capture functions in Roxio Easy VHS to DVD software see the USB device. During my investigations (thanks to Jim's troubleshooting walkthrough that showed the device's manufacturer), I've googled any possible USB 2681 driver downloads for eMPIA and just get links to sites that want me to install their malware.
"Place the USB Capture Device directly in a USB 2.0 connector on the PC, preferably a rear port not some kind of extension USB Hub. Make sure it's properly supported and the connected wires aren't pulling the device out, not making a proper connection. The operating system should recognize the USB Device and launch the Found New Hardware Wizard, if not try a different USB connector on the PC. When the Found New Hardware Wizard launches cancel it otherwise the operating system could install generic drivers for the device" .
I'm not certain, but, since the device is actually being detected as a new piece of hardware, it might just be that the proper driver (USB 2861) is not being installed. The hardware might be still functional, it's just that the appropriate driver to use the hardware is somehow not being set up properly.
I've actually downloaded and installed this in my previous attempts to resolve the "driver-less" issue with no luck. However, seeing that it is now a bona-fide suggestion, I've re-downloaded it and ran the installation again.
But I didn't give up. Looking in the Device Manager, I could see that the device was seen, but Windows didn't know what it was, as there was no driver hooking it in. I clicked on the USB 2861 Properties, saw that there in fact, were no drivers and clicked on Update Driver. I let Windows find the driver automatically, going against all the instructions previous. Windows found the driver! But it warned me that it is Unsigned and that bad things could happen. Whatevs. It's been bad already. Let's do this. I clicked Proceed, and found Roxio Video Capture USB driver installed. W00t. Started up the Roxio Capture util and just did a test capture of some Indiana Jones thing I recorded when I was a kid.

Which driver package from the list should I download to use in a windows 10 environment. The driver and software I received with my Easycap capture device, USB DVR Capture v 4.0A Model No:DC60-007 by honestech is totally useless. The software does not allow us to change the video aspect and as a result we end up with a picture that stretches from top to bottom of screen, but is only about 30cm wide when we try to playback on our bigscreen TV.
