Has anyone got a DC10+ working under XP?

    I have Pinnacle Studio AV 7 and the DC10+ MJPEG capture card left
    over from my 98SE computer - I now running XP-MCE2005.

    It would be convenient, and cheap, to install the DC10+ card in
    my new computer, and use it to capture analog video. But the XP
    drivers for the DC10+ available from Pinnacle require that you first
    install Studio. I really don't want to do that. Studio 7 was such a
    terrible, buggy piece of crap even under 98SE that I don't even want
    it installed on my machine (if that's even possible in the first
    place).

    Is there a stand-alone XP driver for the DC10+ that would allow me
    to use VirtualDub or something like that to capture with?

    Does anyone here have a DC10+ working in XP? How did you do that?

    Used to be a German site with many drivers for Pinnacle products
    (DC20, DC10, DC30....) for recent OSs. Their DC20 driver for 2K/XP
    actually works very well. (DC20 was a predecessor of the DC10/
    DC30...a MJPEG capture card...designed for Win 3.11.) Google is your
    friend.

    BTW: It is likely your are going to have to install Studio no matter
    what you do...Pinnacle cards were famous requiring some proprietary
    software or software version; Install it...that may completely solve
    your driver problems and you MAY be able to use the card with your
    favorite capture/edit program. Even if you can't...use Studio to
    capture only, then edit with what you like.
