If you’re like me you like to shop ebay A LOT. Well I wanted to get a cheap pin camera and a USB video capture card cheap and that’s exactly what I got at eBay. Now I knew what I was ordering was going to be cheap but I didn’t realize it was going to be fake as well. Fake meaning that there would be no more support since it’s a knock off. Anyways I ordered a EasyCap USB 2.0 Video Capture Controller. It worked great under XP but that was then and now I have Windows 7 64 Bit. I looked for HOURS going through countless posts, finding solutions that only worked for the real devices, downloading dozens of files that didn’t work until finally I found a solution.
Here are the files I used for Windows 7 64 Bit. It has 32 Bit included but I couldn’t test them since I don’t have a 32 Bit system anywhere around the house.
DOWNLOAD FILES 64 Bit and 32 Bit EasyCap Fake Controller Drivers 1.8MB RAR ( you will need something like Winrar to open it ).
What I did was simple and here are my instructions:
- Download the file above.
- Extract the files to your desktop for easy finding.
- Go to control panel > System > Device Manager.
- Find the USB controller that has a yellow explanation mark.
- Double click and go to Drivers then click Update Drivers.
- Click Browse my computer for driver software.
- Point to the folder you extracted above and click OK.
At this point windows should have found a driver and popup a message that gives a warning about the version and asks if you want to install anyways. Just hit yes. Once finished it will ask you to reboot, I think, and then you should now have a working USB 2.0 Video Controller!
To test mine I downloaded a video capture software from FileHippp that was free, small and fast which you can find HERE.
If all goes well you should be up and running! If not, well I tried but maybe you have a real EasyCap or a newer version than what I had. Either way good luck and may the force be with you! Not really sure why I said that last part…
