I have a (very) old Capture Card in my machine, and I decided to try windows 7. The problem is, the software that comes with the card doesn't work on windows 7 (not did it work on vista).

I tryed to install the card in the media center, but after a lot of tinkering all I get is VERY delayed video with no audio, that stops after about a minute complaining about Low Bit Rate.

The card still works in windows xp on the same machine.

So how can I fix this, or what software can I get that will work on windows 7 and display video and audio from the card?

The driver model has changed from XP to Vista/Win7. This means that you can't install the XP driver on Win7.
The only advice I have is to try and find a Win7 driver, maybe from the manufacturer.
Please note that a Vista driver has excellent chances of working in Win7.

I got a driver from windows update. And it seems to work as I can actualy see video in the media center. So I need some software that works good just for viewing. – kkaploon Sep 8 '09 at 12:38

Ended up going with DScaler, took some time to tweek it and all, but after that, it works even better than the native application that came with the card back in XP.
