How to Connect Magewell USB Capture and USB Capture Plus Family to the Computer Via USB Type C Connector
Some computers, especially laptops, are only equipped with USB Type C sockets but no USB Type A socket. Because USB Capture
and USB Capture Plus devices use Type A interface, they can’t be directly connected to such a computer.
Additional accessory needed:
A high-quality USB Type A- Type C converter.
Find the original Magewell USB Type A cable, which has been included with the capture device. Connect the cable to the capture
device and the converter. Plug the connector into the Type C socket on the computer. See the picture on the left.
1. The USB Type A to Type C converting cable as is shown on the right cannot be used. This is because the included USB cable
is specially customized and can’t be replaced by the common ones on the market. If a cable other than the original
one is used, it might lead to capture problem or even damage the capture device.
2. When connected via USB Type C, the capture device will still transfer data at USB 3.0 speed.
