Video Capture - GeForce fx 5500
I apologize if this wasn't the right spot for the post -

I've been wanting for a while now to capture some very dated VHS old home movies, and finally got around to getting what I THOUGHT I needed; an s-video cord. So I pop open windows movie maker and go to capture only to receive 'a video capture device was not detected...'.
After searching for over 2 hours I can't find a definitive answer if 1. i even CAN capture with this card, and 2. if the s-video is the method in which I would do this.

Can anyone shed some light for me? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You need this (and specifically this one, a lot of the other ones do not work). You cannot plug into your video card; it's an output device. You need this capture card:
