To make better capturing performane, you may need to check: 1) Make sure DMA mode is enabled if you use IDE DMA/33 or DMA/66 hard-drives. (Control Panel => System => Device Manager => Disk Drives => Properties => Settings => Options => DMA) 2) Run Disk Defragmenter (DeFrag.exe) if hard driver is near full. 4. ASUS display cards consume more electrical power so that your motherboard must be able to provide enough electrical current in 3.3V power to maintain its normal operation. 5. If VIA chipset is on your mainboard, please install VIA VGARTD with normal mode. 6. Please disable Motion Compensation function of the ASUS DVD 2000. This limitation will be removed in next version.
