Generic brands of consumer products (often supermarket goods) are distinguished by the absence of a brand name. It is often inaccurate to describe these products as "lacking a brand name", as they usually are branded, albeit with either the brand of the store in which they are sold or a lesser-known brand name which may not be aggressively advertised to the public. They are identified more by product characteristics.
They may be manufactured by less prominent companies, or manufactured on the same production line as a 'named' brand. Generic brands are usually priced below those products sold by supermarkets under their own brand (frequently referred to as "store brands" or "own brands"). Generally they imitate these more expensive brands, competing on price. Generic brand products are often of equal quality as a branded product; however, the quality may change suddenly in either direction with no change in the packaging if the supplier for the product changes.
This video capture USB device is a widely sold product to convert VHS over to a digital format. The problem with this device is the drivers either don’t work or the drivers are on a CDROM and these days people are buying computers that don’t have any optical drives. To make matters worse the CDROM is a mini-cd and they know for problems and can be used in insert CDROM drives (the ones without trays.)
The drivers that are known to work on Windows 7 upwards are below.
This the generic driver that comes with the Generic Wireless 300n Mini Wireless USB that is usually on Ebay or Amazon. If you are using Windows 10 you can pretty much plug the device in without having to install the drivers as Windows 10 does recognize the adapter and has drivers for it. In any case if you really have to install the drivers that are on the mini cd-rom that comes with the adapter they are below, because no one has a cdrom on their laptop these days.
Audio Stream Input/Output (ASIO) is a computer sound card driver protocol for digital audio specified by Steinberg, providing a low-latency and high fidelity interface between a software application and a computer's sound card. Whereas Microsoft’s DirectSound is commonly used as an intermediary signal path for non-professional users, ASIO allows musicians and sound engineers to access external hardware directly.
