FireCapture all the way Mark. When I had a DMK, IC Capture was the default. But with the Flea2 I got annoyed with the file size limit with the PGR software, so bailed and went to FireCapture, haven't looked back.

I can only get it to run in 640x480 in firecapture for whatever reason

Just to top it off the bundled software with the cam keeps crashing my windows 7 lappy... :/

Hitting the "uninstall" button or contacting the author are the two options in that case

Hi Torsten.

I was being a bit slow when I read your post - I thought your name looked familiar :P

I have unistalled v2.1 and re-installed the v2.2 beta, the good news is it does not crash my laptop (as does the opticstar bundled software) - however I have to run it in webcam mode when I select the camera type when I start up firecapture, and this only gives me 640x480 resolution - any suggestions Torsten? or is it just not fully compatible at this stage?

Thanks,

Mark
