Does your computer have a composite or svideo in jack? If you don't then your going to have to purchase either an external that can connect to the usb port or an internal that is usually on a video card. ATI I beleive sells their older all in wonder cards for around $65.00. You may be able to get a usb capture device cheaper than that. They usually come with some type of capture software.
If you computer already has a composite or svideo in jack, then try a search on cnet.com for shareware capture software.

Opps...guess you need some info.

I have ati all in wonder Audio left and right and video cable hooked up. I have studio 8 from pinnicle which came with myu ATI but i can't get sound in and it won't save. I will refresh the question, Is there a better program that is free or should I need to buy one and if so which is the best bang for the bucks or industry syandard to use. I am just learning, but i can get video recording but no sound and no ability to save right now.

From what I can see with your system, you should have no problems. ATI cards use a cable that connects the video card to the sound card, normally the line in on the sound card. Make sure this cable is connected in the right plug on the sound card. Also check the sound volume control on your system, you can right click on the speaker down by the clock to open the properties. Change the controls to record and see if line in has a check mark below it. If the wav or cd audio has the check mark instead of the line in you wont get any audio from your ati card.
When you capture with Pinnicle Studio it saves the file directly to the hard drive, where you can later add it to the time line. When you start a capture it should ask you for a file name, make sure you verify where the location of that file will be. The default location is in your documents folder with a folder name pinnicle.
One more thing, if you try to capture copy protected video, the audio will not be captured. It does not tell you this in the manual, I found this out when I tried to record a pay per view movie. Apparently ATI has taken the stance to treat all users as pirate theives. :mad:
By the way your ati card should have came with a free program to watch tv, this program can also capture composite and svideo. It can save to avi, wmv, mpeg1 & 2, and as well as its own format.
