Elgato Game Capture HD Driver Problems Code 52

Q: Elgato Game Capture HD Driver Problems Code 52

Just today I got an Elgato Game Capture HD so that I could record myself on YouTube playing XBOX 360, XBOX 1 and Retro Game Consoles. I installed the latest version of the Elgato Game Capture software which required me to install Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 and also required some sort of update for Windows 7. I also downloaded the latest version of the Elgato Game Capture HD Driver. I then opened up the Elgato Game Capture software only to find that it didn't recognize my Elgato Capture device. I went into the Device Manager only to find that there was a yellow ! under the Elgato Game Capture device. I double clicked it to see what the issue was and it gave me the Code 52 error. I tried typing something in CMD to solve the problem but that didn't help. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver but that didn't help. I know that the Device itself is not broken because when a console is hooked up to it then it would show on my HDMI monitor and Retro consoles are included.
Here are some pictures that explain my situation-

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Update- I used Malwarebytes and Adwcleaner to remove viruses in case that was causing the issue. I also used wisecleaner to clean out my registry and here are the results-

My questions is what can i do?
I have all of the programs that i need on my computer already. I dont really want to spend another some-hundred dollars on a new computer and the programs and whatever else i might need. Just want to know my options. If i need to spend money on a new computer or something, please assist me with what to look for -cheaply.

I have absolutely no Idea how to fix this,
I recorded some GTA V Xbox One, with my Newly purchase Elgato Game Capture HD.
The only settings I changed is the resolution:
I put it at [email protected] (with allowance to use 60fps or whatever that tick box was).
When fast movements are made in game, when I record for example and I jump and fall off a car roof, as shown in this video I made (https://youtu.be/refYFmQPooc). You see very early on in that video what I am talking about.

When I'm trying to record something in theater mode it looks good and smooth and hd. But when I record it with Elgato it says "deinterlacing" and after that it looks laggy / crappy / not hd. I need to record good Black Ops 2 material with my ps3 / elgato please help me!

I heard that with ps3 you can get the quality better with some other wires, can someone explain how?

If you need anything else like my settings or computer specs please tell me!

I'm using Mac by the way.


Please help!

A:Elgato Game Capture Device PROBLEM with Black Ops 2 [HELPME!]

Sounds like a configuration issue in your recording software/configuration.

There is no reason to deinterlace the video as it's a progressive signal (ie: 1080P) and you want to record it as a progressive signal (1080P).

As far as cables go, that device doesn't appear to offer an input options. Looks like you should be using an HDMI cable. For the most part, HDMI cables either work or they don't.

I bought this Elgato capture card yesterday and I've been trying to get it to work. I've updated my driver, and changed the video quality on both of my monitors, along with the profile (quality) on the software but I keep getting this message:

I don't know what it means by "video output format" but I want to be able to record off of it, so thank you in advance if you know how to help me.

the image link, if you can't see it.

A:Elgato Capture Card: Won't capture anythng

I'm not familiar with it. But based on the image, there is no input signal (upper right box - Game Capture HD "no signal").

So the error is likely trying to tell you to change the output video type of whatever you have connected.

Whenever I plug in my elgato HD capture device my pc goes to a blue screen. So what happens is I plug my elgato into my computer and open up the elgato software (Game capture HD) And it initializes (I think that is how you spell it) the elgato and 5 seconds later it will crash... I tried to re-install the drivers and the Game capture HD Software but it still does the same thing. Here is a link to a video of my screen when it crashes -

When I check the Device Manager, this device (nVidia WDM Video Capture Driver) has a yellow exclamation next to it. The result is I can't get ASUS Digital VCR to work properly. When I uninstall the device and detect hardware, the drivers (while not certified under Windows logo testing) are reinstalled and everything works fine. However, after a few minutes (or a reboot), the same problem occurs and the yellow exclamation point is back. How can I prevent this from happening? The driver version is 1.22 from nVidia.

I don't know why, but the capture program on my laptop crashes whenever I hit "stop capture" after recording some gameplay footage. The software is up to date (2.0) and I don't know what else to do other than uninstall and reinstall the software. I was recording some gameplay footage earlier today and the program crashed as I hit stop recording. The video file didn't appear when I opened the program again but an m2ts file of the capture did appear in my videos folder with a bugged mp4 file. Options?

I am using Windows 98SE and recently purchased a gamepad, I installed the drivers from the floppy disk(!) that came with it and it worked ok on half-life once calibrated apart from the jerky motion (not my graphics card etc), the pad seemed to stick a little so I sent it back and uninstalled the drivers using add/remove programs. Since then I have received a replacement pad which has buttons that don't "stick" and re-installed the drivers from floppy disk. Unfortunately it seems the drivers now will not install properly. The install wizard kicks in (slowly.. it is from floppy remember lol) and when the unzipping and copying of files takes place it jumps to 100% without the slow copying etc that happened the very first time I installed the driver. It's like they are already installed but they definately are not. Tried uninstalling and re-installing many times to no avail. The pad does appear on the list of game controllers and calibration etc but when playing games the pad is locked to spin right (makes me dizzy!). It's not the pad itself as I have tried another. Somehow the installation of drivers is skipping the essential bits due to a previous installation. Any suggestions please?

After getting my new ABS desktop PC I got from Newegg (ABS Computer Technologies Desktop Computer ALI052 Intel Core i3 6100 8 GB DDR4 1 TB HDD Windows 10 Home 64-Bit - Newegg.com), I can finally use my Roxio Game Capture HD Pro to record gameplay footage without any performance drops. I am using an HP Envy Dv7-7223cl laptop that I installed the capture software on to save the footage while recording. However, after trying it out for the first few times, I noticed a problem. When I played the captured footage on my laptop, I noticed that there was no audio that went with the video footage. I am using an HDMI cable to connect the desktop to the capture card and I know HDMI can send audio.

I looked into the issue and I heard something about enabling Stereo Mix to which I did that and I'm still not getting anything. My audio drivers are also up to date and they are for Realtek HD Audio. Any help is appreciated.

Hi all,
When I boot my computer a little box comes up saying that nwiz.exe had a problem and must close. Then it asks me to report this error. When I do it takes me to the online crash for microsoft saying that the problem was caused by nvidia and to follow the link to solve the problem.
My question is what is a capture driver and which driver do I download to fix it.
Sorry this is such a stupid question but I have no problems running anything on my computer but it's claiming I do.



A:nvidia capture driver????

I found this description of nwiz.exe:
What is it?
NVIDIA nView Wizard - nwiz.exe

What does it do?
This is a multi desktop application used by NVIDIA. I pulled a quote from here:
NVIDIA® nView™ multi-display software--bundled free with NVIDIA® ForceWare™ desktop, workstation, mobile, platform, and multimedia software solutions--provides a revolutionary way to multi-task and process information easier. Instead of stacking window upon window within the confines of a single display, imagine spreading your work across multiple displays. Financial analysts can have a monitor for tracking each data stream. Graphic artists can use an entire display for palettes, and another for editing. The possibilities are endless

Do you really need it? Maybe not if you don't use multiple displays. To try to get rid of the message try reinstalling your video drivers or install the latest drivers from either the NVidia or your card manufacturers site. I also read that there is a way to disable this option in the Utility section for your card. I have a NVidia based card in one of my systems but my son is presently using it to Kill things in one of his games so I am unable to verify this.

I am completely stumped by this problem. I will do my best to explain it and see what you fine folks can do.

I had an older bluetooth dongle, off-brand model, 2010-2011 year, that I installed on my new desktop computer. It worked, but sound quality on my Sony Dr-BT101 headset wasn't great. It worked well with my bluetooth-enabled phones and tablets, so I suspected the dongle. I bought a CSR8510 dongle, which came with a CSR Cambridge Radio Harmony software stack. I installed the software, and turned on the headset, paired it, but no sound came out of the headset. I went to Sound, saw no entries. Went to device managers and saw the parts in yellow. I tried to update the driver but all I got was Code 18 error and this weird message in the picture. I clicked on properties and saw this message.

The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)

There is no driver selected for the device information set or element.

I am stumped. I've tried uninstalling, re-installing, installing other Bluetooth drivers, waving a magic wand, none of it has worked. I'm thinking it's a problem with the Registry, but I am not sure how to proceed.

Any ideas?

Howdy folks. Well, I've been googling for a week now, trying to find a solution to this problem and to date I have been unsuccessful and would like to get a fresh start here. The issue is, I just bought a Compaq F756NR system from Best Buy back in April and was pretty darn happy with the thing until I started trying to do some audio processing for a local radio station I work with. The unit came pre-installed with Vista Home Premium and all the usual Microsoft/OEM garbage you'd expect, plus some very unexpected drivers from HP - specifically, their Conexant High Def SmartAudio 221. It would appear they worked directly with the vendor to intentionally disable any and all audio capture on the fly as anything passes through the audio card. In the XP universe, this was known as the "What you hear" recording feature. I understand in the Vista world, this is known as the Stereo Mix feature. In any case, the feature is thoroughly nuked with this proprietary driver and despite my best attempts (I've got 10 years in tech support so I'm no slouch either) I have been unable to reverse their reverse engineering. :) I must admit this is my first outing with Vista, so I realize I have not thought of everything, but I've already tried the following to no avail:

1. Installed Microsoft UAA driver.
2. Tried manually (no wizard involved) to install the only four Conexant drivers I could find on the internet: SP34200, 37021, 37816, and 38906.

A:Audio Capture Driver for Compaq F700

Hello folks. Just wanted to update you all on this situation. I have successfully re-enabled the features HP and Conexant deliberately disabled. I can show you screen shots of the "What You Hear" recording functionality fully restored, in all its glory.

Again, to HP, Sony, IBM, Microsoft and the rest of you...blow it out your rear tailpipe.

Markets create themselves people and there's a brand new one open now: People who want their old functionality restored on new equipment from ALL of the major vendors.

Updated drivers to be released publicly soon. My next adventure will be re-enabling similar features on Sony Vaio machines. After that I'm going to explore what it will take to add those features to IBM's Lenovo hardware as they have been disabled at hardware level rather than by hobbled drivers/software. I see a refurb center opening in a neighborhood near you that refits the mobo with a chip and driver that do what YOU NEED THEM TO DO, just as they did on your old system. You'll lose your warranty, but you have to ask yourself whether you want more from 3rd parties or less from the vendor who sold you inferior technology. You decide.

That's what this is all about. YOU DECIDE, it's your constitutionally protected right. The RIAA, MPAA, HP, SONY, Microsoft and all the other criminal boss corporations have NO RIGHT to make these decisions for you.

Ultimately I hope to open a business that sells non-hobbled technology to you from the outset.... Read more

You should get a computer that is well above the minimum system requirements. You may be able to run the software with either of those systems but not particularly well.

A:haveing problems playing a game with out it either randomlly crashing the game...

first of all is this limited to this game alone?do other games run fine?check for any overheating signs,install the latest drivers for your video card and your mobo,direct x and any other update.see if you meet the minimum requirements for the game.(this was just the official response you would get from a techie..so bear with me)

if this is happening in this game only and not in any other and your pc isnt overheating and meeting the minimum requirements,then there is a good chance its an issue with your optical drive,try a combo drive if you've got any around.its an incompatibility issue with some of the games.good luck

A:Jetway TV/Capture JW-TV878-FBK Win7 64Bit Driver

Your TV capture card is really old and uses the conexant 878 chipset Last driver was for XP 32bit. You could try and find a different manufacturer that uses the b878 chipset and use thier driver but honestly I don't think your going to find a usable 64 bit driver. Your most likely going to need to update your hardware. Fabe

I'm having trouble with winAVI Video Capture in Win7 64. WinAVI works fine in XP and I suspect it has something to do with my Conexant Falcon II TV Tuner. I've been unable to find a driver for Win7, though PCPitStop claims there is one. They want me to buy there updater to get it. Here is want winAVI states when I start it up:"Process of scanning capture device abend!""Fail in starting capture device!""Unable to show video preview!"Any ideas?

I was loading the drivers for an InVidia Geforce FX5500 128mb x8AGP graphics card on a friend's computer and when the installation wizard on XP came to the WDM Video Capture Universal driver, it said it didn't load properly and I would have problems later on (you know that MS message).

Well sure enough when checking the hardware device manager there was that pesky yellow "!" telling me of the problem. I assume the disk had a bad driver on it so I went to Invidia's website to download the most current driver but couldn't find that same one. Instead after doing an Invidia search for that driver I got the WDM w/vivo driver. Installing that didn't do crap.

So do I need this? I don't know but one thing is apparent, with Invidia's own DVD player InDVD, it will detect the presence of Dolby Digital encoded DVD's but will only play them in stereo. Going to their properties tab and clicking onto the speaker set up, the selection for center, rear surround and sub woofer speaker are grey'd out so I can't select them.

The whole point in getting this card was to allow this computer to function as a home theater set up (as the onboard integrated audio on this mobo isn't set up for anything more than stereo). Speaking of onboard, I disabled it choosing to preference a PCI Creative Live 24-bit sound card. That card will test the speakers for a 5.1 setup and do it flawlessly but that's just that card.

hi everyone. i had this problem
The following issues are preventing Windows from upgrading. Cancel the upgrade, complete each task, and then restart the upgrade to continue.

Windows needs to be restarted so necessary changes to system files can be made before continuing.

For these items, make the following changes:
Uninstall these programs. Open Control Panel and search for "uninstall a program".

CxVCap, Video Capture Driver
while trying to upgrade windows7 with new version. i saw on net that some people have the same problem, but no solution.
well the problem was in my tv card (or it can be with some other capture device).
i solved it by manually deleting sys files from system32/drivers that are related to my tv card. in my case it was cxavsvid.sys (with mouse over you can see file description) and after that it worked!
it seems so simple but after hours and hours searching for solution and trying everything, uninstalling drivers, apps, cleaning drivers, finnally i tried this and it worked.
i hope that this thread will be helpful to someone. cheers

Hey, recently I got myself an Elgato HD60 Pro. Without thinking (stupid me), I bought it and found out I have to put it in an I BELIEVE PCI-E 2 slot. But anyways, the slot is directly underneath the slot my GPU is placed. Now, my GPU is pretty big due to the fan meaning it blocks of the slot for my Elgato, meaning I can't plug both my Elgato and my GPU in at the same time.

My GPU doesn't have USB (I've seen a few PCI risers online but they all need USB as far as I understand). Is there a way to - without getting a new motherboard etc - get them both in (I thought of some extension thing for my GPU so I can place my GPU somewhere without directly putting it in the slot)

Sorry if this is messy written, hopefully it's understandable. I have no experience with hardware whatsoever.
