StarTech ECHDCAP ExpressCard34 install driver problem



I'm trying to install a StarTech ECHDCAP ExpressCard34 into a W530 - 2447GW3.

Hardware ID : PCI\VEN_1131&DEV_7160&SUBSYS_12ABF50A&REV_03


First time Device Manager said "Not supported by your BIOS - contact your manufacturer for an update - code 3" or something.


BIOS is current - G5ET93WW (2.53 )


Is that a 'whitelist' issue ?


Now it says "

This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)

If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system.


Very strange - this is not a low-resources kind of PC ?

MMC crashed !


I'll reboot with the thing in-situ ...

That is not a whitelist issue. What OS? Did it come with a driver disk? I have never used that card, but with other Express Cards, I have had better luck with the cheap, generic cards from China, than the ones from Star Tech


I do not respond to requests for private, one-on-one help. Your questions should be posted in the appropriate forum where they may help others as well.

OS Name Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate E 

Version 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601

System Type x64-based PC


Rebooting with the card in-situ helped somewhat.

Device Manager showed it as 'functioning correctly'


Best support resource I found is an Amazon review !

"This card is NOT hot swappable - that is to say that you can't insert this card while your computer is on and expect to use it. You have to boot your PC up with this card already in the slot."


Given that the card gets very hot (60 deg Centigrade, I guess), leaving it in will shorten battery life.


Inserting the card after booting gives

"Your computer's system firmware does not include enough information to properly configure and use this device.  To use this device, contact your computer manufacturer to obtain a firmware or BIOS update. (Code 35)"


I was hoping to record HDMI video from a DSLR (Nikon D600) using a laptop and ECHDCAP instead of an "Atomos Ninja" and external monitor !


It seems to work intermittently now.

I've once seen the camera's menu mirrored on the laptop, and even briefly managed to record a horribly distorted video.

About 10% of the lines seemed to come from a previous frame (or 2 frames ago)!


I'm guessing there is  some negotiation of resolution and frame rate going on, but the numbers displayed in StreamCatcher.Startech bear no relation to the camera video modes !

That's Startech's Flash App.


I'll try VirtualDub instead ...
