Lesson 13. Implementing Stand-Alone Unco... > Installing Capture Device Drivers

Installing Capture Device Drivers

This process is also a breeze. All the device manufacturers offer their latest drivers in a downloadable form on their Web sites. Our only advice here is to always use the latest driver from a manufacturer’s Web site, as opposed to the driver on the CD that came shipped with the device. Manufacturers are fastidious in supporting their devices, and the drivers that shipped with your device may already be outdated.

Unless you enjoy living on the edge, don’t download a “beta” version of a driver that the company may be offering to the public on a trial basis. Instead, look for the formal release—the one without the ominous “b” in its version number. Check the major discussion lists to see how people are faring with a new release in drivers. Most importantly, never change or install new drivers in the midst of an important project.
