    I had never heard of it but a quick scan says it is a cheap and nasty capture device. Did you install any drivers or custom software with this device? If so I am going with that. I am far too lazy and watching the clock approach 2am is not likely to change that but drivers and/or custom software installed with nasty video capture device is a good bet.

    On the off chance it is not exactly that do you just pull the device out or do you properly shut down the programs it uses and properly eject it? If you just pull it then it may leave something running in the background and that could gradually take up memory and possibly take the whole system with it.

    Uh...I use VideoView for EasyCaps cuz I found it on youtube long time ago. I plug it and it said unable to understand usb port. So I look up the google and follow the steps to uyse install easycaps on videoview.

    Also when I start use it, there is pop up about memory data error in my computer. I don't know what is it all about it so I cancel. It is that reason cause my computer crash down?

    I willing to bet that USB capture device and that program you downloaded is completely no good.

    A rule of thumb, good capture device starts around $100. Anything less than that and you'll be pulling your hair out trying to get it work (if it does work in the first place).
