Where would I find applications folder ? That is equivalent of "app" listed?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Think I can find that. And question of how to open? Will have to exploit that?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Clicked on applications folder and found Rozio video capture. Clicked on it and screen came up -"please connect your Rozio caprtur hardware to any USB 2.0 port." That is same screen that would continue to pop up previously when trying to start it.....and always to no avail.

Expert:  Robert M. replied 2 years ago.

ok its running. its just not finding the hardware.

there should be something plugged into the usb port that you connect the vhs to.

try unplugging that and plugging it into a different usb port

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Had tried earlier to do another USB port and same no results

Under devices - john Mac book, remote disc, and easy vas to DVDs - shows last category with a triangle of set there ....is that correct?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Let me go down to vhs machine and try USB connector again - with setting on applications per your direction and device with "easy vas to DVDs"
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Went and changed USB connector, tried playing vhs machine, and opening on tab I have for roxi o and same " need of plugging into message comes about
Expert:  Robert M. replied 2 years ago.

the triangle usually means that it is in error. especially if it has an exclamation point in it

try this

shut off the computer unhook the usb thing

attach the usb to the vhs unit FIRST and make sure that is on

then restart the computer

then plug it into the usb port.

if it came with software try reinstalling that.

Triangle has line underneath it - no exclamation point

I am not really that great on macs at this level

and i am about to leave for the day.

so i am going to opt out here and put it back in the pool for somebody else to pick up.

if you want to try what i suggested above while you wait that would be great. it couldnt hurt anything :)

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I'm I re started it. Can't put disc into it as don't have side external drive. Apple Store installed original.
Expert:  Robert M. replied 2 years ago.

ok well that would be a reason it isnt working. if its supposed to stream to a dvd it would need the dvd writer.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Not agreeing with his answer. You have in no way approached where downloading is. Frankly,
Last answer aggravates me. Always easy to fire
off cuff answer as one leaves. Have diminished my willingness to work with another guy. Sorry your rep seemed to duck matters and said not
That familiar with mac
Expert:  Robert M. replied 2 years ago.

i dont understand. did it work with no dvd drive before ?

do you have an internal one ? if so why would you need the external one

Expert:  Robert M. replied 2 years ago.

there is a software update on this page

you can download it and drag it over the old one in the applications folder
