My current XP computer is a single-core laptop running at a hot 1.6GHz, with 3gb of ram. I have an extra (albeit with a bad sector or two) hard drive that I could stick into my desktop and put XP on that, my quad-core 2.66GHz desktop. The laptop can't handle capturing the video, dropping nearly every frame (It captured 60 after the three hour vhs finished). I was considering putting the 500GB drive into my desktop, installing XP on that to capture VCR recordings, then just re-wiring the hard drives I use day-to-day. The video I'm capturing is 240p 30fps, and certainly that computer can handle capturing, even though the other one can't. The drivers will not work on anything higher than XP or lower than 95. I tried emulation of XP on the 7 machine, giving it two cores (Can't XP only handle two cores?) and that crashed and burned, bluescreening and whatever I tried. Advice would be welcomed.
