Caveat: I don't have a Bamboo, I've got a Tablet PC but what you're describing sounds like the right click press-and-hold action which you can disable/tweak as follows: (if you're in category mode) Go to the Control Panel, 'Hardware and Sound' and then 'Change tablet pen settings' (if you're in icon mode) or 'Pen and Touch' Once inside, you'll see ...

What I recommend you to do for the highest preservation of quality is : Use the application that comes with your capture card. Choose the highest possible resolution and format you can capture (3MBps DV-AVI if possible). (Since you are capturing from VCR, anything above 640 in resolution pixel width will not result in much gain.) Use Handbrake to convert ...

Best way is to ask a professional who will do it for a cheap price. They have professional devices for this purpose so they will be able to achieve an outstanding quality (well what can they produce from a VHS). I would go with this method. (Also. 100VHS .. lets calculate with 2.5hours. .... :/) Also what do you do if something goes FUBAR because of the ...

No, you cannot just "put data on USB". USB is Universal Serial Bus. A bus (in a computer) is a control and data pathway, in this case to connect periperal devices (aka adapters) to the computer. USB connects periperal devices just like PCI accepts adapter cards/boards. The USB Host expects to communicate with a USB device using the USB protocol. USB is ...

Play the master tape in a VHS Player and use a USB Video Capture (VHS to DVD) cable for input into your computer. Now you only have to save the incoming signal to a file and you are done. You can get such a cable easily at a shop or at the internet.

Take a look at this - What do I need to be able to convert analog video (VHS, or an old camcorder) on a Mac? The El Gato solution works for both PC and mac - basically a usb dongle that you plug your analog video source into, and it digitizes it for you.

Get something like http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=1428&name=USB%20Capture%20Devices and these hardware will usually come bundled with "video capture" software. They will allow you to "record" the video input in a way similar to how you operate a VCR. Depends largely on your turntable. If your turntable ...

I use Evernote for my note taking although I don't use the handwriting recognition it does have support for it. I like it because it backs up the notes online and has a Firefox Plugin that lets me highlight parts of web pages and save them to my account which syncs to the application its pretty awesome. Check out the videos about it ...

Ok, I did the scanning in November. I used a flatbed scanner and here is what I learned. Dust is your enemy. The reason there are not many photo scanners with feeders is because of dust getting caught in the sensor and ruining your scans. Almost every scanner you can buy these days has software that can cut up multiple photos. Any dust on the flatbed will ...

this would probably be a good start, since its got both hardware and software suggestions. I suspect using a pair of canons + CHDK (since they have simple, DIYable remote triggers+ setting them to to click based off the same trigger as the page turning part of the hardware would be simplest, and there's a few FOSS software suggestions there such as Bindery, ...

You may have to normalize the signal to some standard. You also have to decide the range of values that you wish to digitize. To recreate the data from the data source will you use 8, 16 or 32 bit digitized data. Also with what skew does the source signal change so how many points will you read in a second to again recreate the source data. So Yes ...

You must ensure that digitization frequency (sampling frequency) is 2x larger than maximum frequency (that is considered to be non-noise) in input signal. Otherwise you'll get a plain garbage. This is called Nyquist sampling theorem.

WinDV is an excellent application for capturing video. It will keep your video and audio in sync and doesn't drop frames (remember to disable antivirus when capturing).

VirtualDub is an old, famous, open-source and still actively-developed video capture/processing software (for Windows only). It is simple and powerful, with lots of features and fine-tuning settings. It's is not a full general-purpose video editor, but I think it might have the exact features you need.

USBVision or VideoGlide from EchoFX. Check to see if your RCA to USB cable is supported by either one of those. Not sure what format it imports but they claim "high contrast, high quality video -better than DV at the same size." You can also export to MPEG-4 or H.264.

I suspect that you have changed the pen settings in the Bamboo settings app. You can have it act as a pen (absolute positioning) or as a mouse (relative positioning) - I think I got those the right way round. OneNote recognises the presence of a pen automatically as that is what it was originally designed for. UPDATE: How about the OneNote settings. Have ...

I am sorry you bought that computer. The stylus writing for G1 was embarrassing. I don't have it anymore. I saw one video of the stylus for the G2 elitepad and was marginally better which will be comparable to the G2 revolve. Here are some forums about the stylus that works for the G1 and G2. I need to clarify that there are 2 pens (Atmel). The HP ...

In order to extract the equation behind an Excel calculated trendline, you just need to to right-click on the line/curve and select "Display Equation on Chart": Then, you can create a formula matching this equation by hand.
