Just bought a elgato Game capture. I have an H8-1100z amd fx 6100 with windows 7 64 bit and amd 6670 card. It has a 600 watt power supply, everything was custom built from here and i have done no overclocking or alterations. The software always says "Capture device not detected"
Reinstalled software, reinstalled usb root hubs doesnt work. When I plug cable into Acer i5 laptop with same OS works fine. Every other usb device works fine, tested a smartphone and external drive today. I have been having some intermitent freezes in the past (not for a while) where everthing including power to mouse and keyboard is out (ctrl alt delete doesnt even work). BSOD 's once and said USB bugcode error, everything been fine for a month but this new elgato isn't working. I have never formatted drive for important things that Need codes like software are on it. Microsoft virus scan is clean.
Usb cable is in tight made a unlisted video of how it works fine on my laptop which has weaker specs, while I plug right back into HP and wont capture. This is a new computer and Don't understand why Elgato says no capture device detected. Here is the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mqvbR8fAiW8
Computer is less than a year old and I bought this computer for this purpose mainly. I bought it from here the warranty is still on, any known issues with lack of power supply? I unplugged everything besides elgato, tried every port, including ones in the back no response, tried a different usb cable etc. Restarted software. reinstalled several times. This product is very popular and has good reviews from most everyone.
Please help thanks.
