Try to import video from Terratec Grabster AV 300 device on UBS port.

Device is properly connected the supplied Magix software is working and is able to grab video and sound.

When I try to import in Movie Studio 16 the message "the device 'AV 300 GRABSTER' could not be opend. Pleas make sure that it is turned on and not being used by another application or user" is given. Is this a wrong setting ?

Open one of the Grabster videos in the free download MediaInfo. In MediaInfo, set View to Text and then copy this text and paste it to this forum. Once we know the specs of the video Grabster is creating we'll better be able to advise you.

No Vegas version nor Vidcap are designed for USB analog capture, only 1394 Firewire.

The report that it worked on one version for you should be treated as an exception, not an expectation.

Call it a red herring, and capture as your device manufacturer describes.
