OK, I just show you what I do. I have a Pentium III 600, 128M, 30GHD, a Dazzle DVC special edition, now I can transfer all my VHS tape to VCD that I can play on my DVD player, mine is a chinese make DVD, VCD, SVCD and CD player that it was bought last July from Vientiane, Laos.

I capture my video at 352x240 29.97 f/s NTSC, 352x288 25f/s PAL and save to mpeg then I burn it to Video-CD by used Nero 5.0, you can get this software at www.Nero.com, it is a free try. Work great, after I burn to a CD-R but my DVD will not play CD-RW.

I don't have DVC.II so I don't know your message, but DVC I use Dazzle set up wizard and it help.
