    I recently purchased a One-Touch Video Capture made by Diamond Multimedia. When I placed the CD into my iMac, it seemed to be made only for a windos PC...is there a way I can still install the correcgt driver?

    Not if it's an exe file. Unfortunately, you might have to return it, and get something mac compatible.

    Even if you run windows through a virtual machine, video capture may be a problem unless you have a really good computer.


    I tried it through parallels before, but ended up just buying an EyeTV hybrid USB tv tuner for mac. I can now watch and record tv using standard definition composite video-in. (yellow wire, or S-video wire)

    I wish I could do HD-in now, though. I have a PS3 and would like to record while playing on my TV, but don't do it because in order to record, I need to switch it back to standard definition.

    Have you tried loading iDVD and then just plugging the camera into the computer? Sometimes the OS may have a workable driver.
